premise of the story looks to follow the all too often seen “stop the
ancient long forgotten evil” path of narrative that has sunk its claws
into the genre with no signs of letting up.
In Otogi players take on the role of Raiko, an undead warrior who
must stop a demonic army that has unleashed upon the Earth as part of an
ancient doomsday myth. Obviously
there will be more meat on the story’s bones as the game progresses,
so here’s to hoping Otogi throws a few pleasant surprises at players
as they make their way through the game.
nothing else, Otogi will help to fill a big, gaping genral void in the
Xbox’s library. RPG fans
can look forward to this game’s planned September 2003 release.
