Otogi: Myth of Demons is a third-person action game which lets you play as Raikoh. Once a mighty warrior, he has been resurrected by a mysterious princess to free Japan of an army of demons and is held in the world of the living by her powers. Battle your enemies with either your sword, your magic, or both, and buy new weapons, spells and other items between missions to better your performance. The battle system, while simple at its roots, lets you execute a number of combinations of basic, heavy, spell, and dash attacks to strike at your enemies. Since Raikoh can stay long in mid-air and even rise up higher by executing certain slashes, fights take place in all three directions of the area.
