Described as “NES hard, but also NES awesome,” Oniken is a throwback to old platform action games like Strider and Ninja Gaiden that were incredibly hard but also incredibly addictive. Infused with the look and sound of the 1980’s, Oniken‘s new trailer — which you can view below — is meant to draw in old and new fans alike with insane battles and challenging enemies.
Set a post-apocalyptic dystopia where a war-torn humanity is being oppressed by the evil military organization Oniken, only a small rebel movement and a ninja mercenary named Zaku can stop the evil forces from dominating the world.
Man, this game makes me miss the old days of blowing into a cartridge for ten minutes and needing to write down paragraph-long password codes. Ah, nostalgia.
