Platinum Games, known for the stylish and skillful action of games like Vanquish and Bayonetta, is bringing their signature style to mobile with World of Demons, a samurai hack-n-slash with a painting aesthetic reminscent of Okami.

Building a roster of samurai, you battle gorgeously drawn demons and bosses, using simple controls to slash, dodge, parry, and unleash finishers. The complexity of combat is compounded through the use of Yokai minions, collected as you progress and level-up, that add special attacks, buffs, and other abilties to your repertoire. You'll need to use every skill available to survive World of Demons' battles, across a number of modes; single player Skirmish, competitive Yokai Showdown, and cooperative Samurai Stronghold. 

World of Demons will be a free-to-play game published by DeNA, and is expected to release on iOS this summer. An Android release will come later in the year. You can find more details on the game's official site.

"the monetization aspects felt pretty same-y, for lack of a better way to put it."

Please tell me this isn't some cheap attempt at garnering respect, because that ship sailed long ago.
