posted on by Alex Mateo
NIS America announced on Thursday that it will release publisher FuRyu and developer Lancarse's new game Monark in English for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam in early 2022. The company streamed an English-subtitled announcement trailer:
The video previews the theme song "Nihil" by KAF.
The game will ship for PS5, PS4, and Switch in Japan on October 14.
Clouded Leopard Entertainment will release the game in Asia on the same day as Japan with Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Korean subtitle support, and with planned English dub and subtitle support added in a later free update.
Clouded Leopard Entertainment describes the game:
You suddenly awaken in Shin Mikado Academy. Before you is a barrier separating the campus from the rest of the outside world. Within the academy grounds are the madness-inducing Mist, cryptic phone calls that connect to the Otherworld, and seven Pactbearers–each with their own Daemonic power ruled by their Egos.
To resist the irrationality surrounding you, you acquire the Authority of Vanity, a Daemonic power that subsists off of your Ego and madness. You and your four companions then establish the True Student Council, with you as their vice president. Together, you fight to return the academy back to normality.
At Shin Mikado Academy, you'll befriend and fight alongside four companions who will lead you to four separate destinies.
Whose hand will you ultimately take?
Where will their paths lead you?
How will these four fates converge?
Only you, the master of your own destiny, can find out.

Kazunari Suzuki and Aya Nishitani are credited with scenario supervision and cooperation. so-bin (Overlord) is drawing the character designs. Tsukasa Masuko is composing the background music.
