Mon-Yu launches in Fall 2023 for PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC
During today's All Aksys 2023 Update, Aksys Games announced that Mon-Yu: Defeat Monsters And Gain Strong Weapons And Armor. You May Be Defeated, But Don’t Give Up. Become Stronger. I Believe There Will Be A Day When The Heroes Defeat The Devil King will launch in Fall 2023 for Nintendo Switch, PC, and newly-announced for PlayStation 5. The game is just called "Mon-Yu" for short.
Developed by Experience (Undernauts Labyrinth of Yomi, Stranger of Sword City, Demon Gaze) Mon-Yu is a DRPG which released in Summer 2021 in Japan. The game features character designs by Mota and monster designs by Akifumi Yamamoto, who both worked on 2009 Japanese-only DS RPG 7th Dragon.
Like traditional DRPGs, the party is player-created from a set of classes. According to details shared in a live stream around the Japanese launch, Mon-Yu is separated into floors, with each having a boss creature to defeat. In order to defeat them, strategy and skill is emphasized over levels and grinding.
Aksys's live stream can be found below, where the niche publisher discusses Mon-yu from 0:28 to 1:46.
