Demonschool release date

We’ve been waiting to hear about the release date for Demonschool, and today, publisher Ysbryd Games and developer Necrosoft shared that information. It’ll be coming to Switch on September 13, 2024.

Originally announced in 2022, Demonschool is a school-life tactics RPG with hints of Persona, Shin Megami Tensei, and Italian horror cinema. It was planned for 2023 at the time, but extra development was needed.

Those that need a refresher on the game can check out the following overview:

Survive a semester of screams as college freshman Faye, the final heir of the last practicing demon-hunting family, Upon arriving at a mysterious island university, she finds supernatural investigations on her syllabi. With newfound allies at her side, battle imps, demons, and class discussion boards, and close the breach between worlds before it’s too late.

Form a demon-busting battle party by befriending (or romancing!) 15 different playable characters, each with a distinct set of abilities. Employ Knute to heal friendlies and cure poisons, or invoke Destin to kick enemies away as far as possible with the strength of his short shorts. Carefully balance class schedules, combat training, side quests, extracurriculars, and more to boost classmates’ skill sets while still acing midterms.

Ready the party’s moves in the Planning phase, mindfully placing classmates in advantageous positions to utilize their strengths. Set or rewind movements to build the perfect turn, then confirm your intentions with the Action phase to watch the attacks, heals, and striking combos play out simultaneously.

2D and 3D art collide in a chess-like purgatory filled with macabre monsters and intense boss battles. Take on gruesome demons inspired by Japanese horror manga and ‘60s-’70s Italian horror cinema. Strategize on tactics gameplay influenced by Into the Breach and painted in the hues of JRPG classics like Shin Megami Tensei and Persona.

Brandon Sheffield, creative director of Necrosoft Games, said today: “We wanted to encourage experimentation in Demonschool, including the ability to undo moves or and redo a whole turn from scratch, providing freedom to tinker with different mechanics and abilities for maximum punishment. We’re looking forward to seeing new ideas we haven’t even thought of play out on the battlefield!”
