Like many online multiplayer titles before it, Onigiri’s selective shutdowns are likely due to dwindling active player counts and growing performance issues on these specific platforms. Since the announcement the PS4 and Steam releases have continued to operate as normal along with the dedicated Japanese and Taiwanese PC clients.

In June of 2022, the site was contacted by a Catheon Gaming representative to inform us that a new version of Onigiri was in the works on PC, built with the blockchain and NFTs in mind. Should it prove successful, this version would replace the current Japanese and Taiwanese PC versions of the game.

About the Game

Onigiri is an MMO Action RPG with a fast weapon changing battle system. Join a party of other players or travel with 8 NPC companions on your journey. With simple controls, you can dive into the thrilling world of Onigiri. Switch between weapons to battle through the Youkai.

In a Japan filled with spirits and monsters, ages ago, the land itself was rocked by chaos. From the depths rose the terrible Kamigui who carved a path of destruction through all.

The gods and people struggled for a century. At last, Amaterasu Oomikami, goddess of the Sun, placed three great Seals forcing the Kamigui away and returning peace once again.

Time has passed, and now, one of the great Seals has shattered. A dark force arises once more. On the far western island of Onigashima, fate brings together a young woman and a child of the Oni. The journey of destiny begins now!
