Deck-building RPGs and rogue-like games are making a big comeback in the gaming industry, and this trend continues with the release of Castle Morihisa, developed by Smokingbear Studio. The art style is very striking, with a moody color palette to match its vibe.
You can check out the trailer below:
Players will be able to choose from four classes: monk, samurai, ninja, and onmyoji, all with different skills and abilities that will affect how your runs go. Here is a brief overview of the game and its basic mechanics:
“After General Tokugawa of the shogunate issued the ‘Laws for Military Houses’ to his vassals, none of the emissaries sent to the Ishikawas at Morihisa Castle returned. Rumors claim that Lord Ishikawa Shinjuku was trying to usurp the throne and that he had closed all roads leading to the castle days before. The great metsuke Yagyū Munenori asks a spy to go to Morihisa Castle to find out the truth about what is happening.
Four distinct classes – the monk, samurai, onmyoji and ninja, each with their own unique deck set. With over 300 different cards, you can build your own deck based on the class you choose to challenge these bizarre monsters from Japanese folklore.
Castle Morihisa is set to release on Switch and PC on February 10.
