Platinum Games has finally released its mobile action game World of Demons, and if you’re an Apple Arcade subscriber, you can play it for free right now.
In fact, World of Demons is exclusively available through Apple Arcade right now after previously being planned for launch nearly three years ago. The stylish 3D action game bears a striking resemblance to Okami, which some Platinum Games developers also worked on before leaving Capcom. It offers a twist on the premise seen in the Nioh games, with powerful Yokai wandering the world, but instead of simply attacking them, you’re able to command a Yokai army as a skilled samurai.
The launch trailer shows the game’s gorgeous watercolor-style visuals, with thick outlines on the characters and broad, sweeping effects for attacks. It should play well with the lesser power of devices like the iPhone while still maintaining the smooth and fast action Platinum Games is known for. The studio has primarily developed by consoles and sometimes PC up to this point, and World of Demons was in limbo for several years prior to its release on Apple Arcade.
