Aragami: Collector’s Edition
**Includes a digital art book and a soundtrack**
Aragami is a third-person stealth game in which you control the shadows. Play as Aragami, an undead assassin with supernatural abilities. You, a once mighty warrior, have been summoned back from the dead by Yamiko, a noble girl from the sacred citadel of Kyûryu. How you were once defeated or any clear memories to your past are all fragmented. Make your way through the heavily guarded city with Yamiko by your side as you uncover memories from your past life and ultimately decipher your connection with your summoner. Use your Shadow Powers to become the ultimate stealth killer. Cast shadows on any surface and use your Shadow Leap to move around undetected. Dispose of enemy corpses using your Shadow Vanish, create shadow clones to distract your enemies or invoke black holes to swallow your targets in one fell swoop. As you advance you will need to use all your powers and wit to sneak past guards, teleport between shadows, create your own areas of darkness and strategically assassinate those who stand in your way. Aragami has strong influences from stealth classics such the Tenchu Saga, or more modern stealth gems like Mark of the Ninja and Dishonored. The scenarios are open and filled with multiple hidden paths and ways to reach your objectives. Aragami has a punishing difficulty; you are lethal when undetected, but outmatched in numbers. Getting detected can lead to an abrupt defeat, so you must rely on your supernatural abilities and stealth to choose your battles wisely.
Old School Stealth – Your enemies are lethal and direct confrontation is not an option. Survey the scenario, plan your approach and sneak around your enemies. Be the hunter, not the hunted.
Choose Your Play-Style – Each situation has different possible approaches. Will you be the merciless emissary of death? Or maybe an undetectable ghost? Aragami won’t force you to kill your enemies, nor will it penalize you for doing it. Both approaches to violence are valid.
Shadow Powers – You have an array of Shadow Powers at your disposal. Create areas of darkness to get tactical advantage, use your Shadow Leap to move instantly between any two shadows, feed the bodies of your enemies to the shadows and leave no trace, summon a Shadow Clone to distract and confuse your enemies.
Powerful Enemies – Your foes are not helpless, they can manipulate light to create moving light sources, cast light barriers, shoot incendiary arrows, launch barrages of light from their weapons and imbue their armors with resplendent light.
Replay Value – Replay each scenario to improve your performance score. Depending on your play-style you will get different outcomes, which will affect the world of Aragami and the story events.
An Immersive Story – Not everything in Aragami is as simple as it seems. The characters’ past interconnects in different timelines, and every step you take uncovers a bit more about them.
