Japan's Indie World confirms

OMOCAT’s highly-anticipated Switch port of its horror RPG, Omori, was one of the featured games during Japan’s Indie World showcase. And the presentation also confirmed an official release date for the game — 17th June!
While we initially reported that the game’s physical edition would be shipping out on the same day, it seems that the eShop has also been updated with this June date, meaning we’ve got just over a month until we can dive into this sketch aesthetic turn-based RPG.
The Indie World trailer (which starts at around 12:00 minutes in) gives us a little taste of what we can expect – pastel, colourful worlds; unusual enemies; and our greatest fears. Omori follows a boy who wakes up in a “White Space”, where he must confront his fears and secrets. The game has earned praise for its depictions of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, and guilt, and it utilises an Emotion system in battle, which works similarly to the Weapon Triangle in the Fire Emblem series.
We’ll keep an eye on whether we get any more concrete info on Omori’s release date, but 17th June is looking like the date to finally pick this one up.
