Hello everybody! If you haven’t picked up Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines yet, now’s your chance to get a taste of an epic tale of revenge set in ancient Japan, as the demo for PS Vita and PS TV is available today on PlayStation Store. Also available today, we have additional DLC content for sale. Previously offered only to early purchasers of the full game, now for sale at $0.99 each, you can unlock 2 rare and powerful gods, Tonkararin and Kiri No Mashu to unite with.
Going back to the demo for a minute — all progress made is transferable to the full game, so you’ll be able to continue your journey without losing a step. Oh, and a quick note about game modes — while there is only one mode of difficulty in the demo, you’ll have the option to change it without losing any progress after you upgrade to the full game for $19.99. So for any fanatics out there, the full game offers a game mode where you can immerse yourself with an estimated playthrough time of 100 hours!
Can’t get enough of Oreshika news!? For those thirsting to know more about the game, we caught up with Shoji Masuda, game designer of Oreshika, who shared some exclusive behind-the-scenes stories. Take a look!
As mentioned in the video, Oreshika is set in Japan a thousand years ago where people still believed that there were spirits and demons in the world. This is not everyday Japan by any stretch — it’s a complete fantasy world unique to Japanese culture.
Another thing you won’t have much contact with in your everyday life, is the Japanese traditional art form of woodblock prints, known as ukiyo-e, and Japanese-style paintings, which served as inspiration for the distinct game art. We hope players will enjoy an escape-from-the-everyday by delving into the strange and mythical fantasy world that is Oreshika!
Now that you’re in-the-know about Oreshika, how’d you like to add some Oreshika flair to your PS Vita home screen? We have two downloadable wallpapers pre-sized for the PS Vita for everyone to enjoy!

That’s it for today! Till next time… Go forth over my dead body…
