Hanabusa is a young headstrong girl living in the Heian capital within medieval Japan. But when her mother is slain by evil spirits, her life turns into one of vengeance as she sets out to hunt and destroy the spirits.

During Hanabusa’s travels, she meets a white fox who turns out to be a servant of the mountain god. Hanabusa receives a special sword passed down from her mother, which gives her the ability to see the true forms of spirits to help slay them. Shortly after, a spirit claiming to be Hanabusa’s long-lost father, Hidetada, breaks her sword and leaves Hanabusa powerless and confused.

Now to mend her broken sword and learn the truth about her father, Hanabusa embarks on a journey to annihilate every last one of the evil spirits.
99 Spirits has a great art direction, an original story and a unique gameplay that reminds to both Pictionary and Pokémon with a great result. If all indie Japanese indie games are this good I’ll start to learn the language ASAP. It can’t be missing in any indie game collection. (Bit Maiden)

Without a shadow of doubt, 99 Spirits is one of the most imaginative and accomplished indie games on the market. (True PC Gaming)

Mixing the puzzle and RPG genre along with some anime themed influences, 99 Spirits became an absorbing and addicting title that was nearly impossible for me to put down for too long. (Moonlitasteria)

Just as I am always after a unique storyline in a game, I am always searching for something unique in terms of gameplay and 99 Spirits has given that box a BIG tick. (The Otaku's Study)

75/100 Though not a flawless experience, 99 Spirits manages nonetheless to be a strangely addictive JRPG (IdieGameMagazine)

99 Spirits will be in English with the option to switch between Japanese and English voice acting.

Additionally, the deluxe edition will also feature the original Japanese version of the game for those that are interested.

very interesting game and I can see myself playing this as it's also a kind of memory game having to remember what was said and read it out as shown in the gameplay trailer where you discover one creature being a paper lantern.

The game info says this game is in english and only english. The first gameplay trailer suggests its available in at least one other language.

And yeah, that song on the first trailer is kinda addictive...
