NetEase announced today the launch of the English language version of their blockbuster mobile game Onmyoji in limited beta for iOS and Android mobile devices. Available now for signup in the United States and Canada, the Onmyoji beta gives western players a first look at the anime-style mobile gaming sensation that took Asia by storm. Featuring stunning 3D graphics, strategic PvP battles, and customizable characters voiced by real anime legends.
Onmyoji is a 3D Japanese anime-style mobile RPG with strategic, turn-based combat in PvP or PVE battles, where players can adventure solo or with friends and guildmates to become the ultimate Onmyoji. Set in the mythical Heinan period where humans and spirits inhabit the same realm, the story follows the Onmyoji, a group of gifted individuals who are able to manipulate natural order and control spirits (or shikigami).
These Onmyoji can read the stars, draw amulets and have the power to connect the two worlds, and even tame the spirits. They are willing to lay everything on the line to maintain peace and order between the two worlds. Play as Abe no Seimei, the most famous Onmyoji, in the quest to restore his lost memories. Collect amulets in order to summon more powerful and rare shikigami, and form contracts to defeat the demons and spirits in this story-rich adventure.

Onmyoji is expected to launch this year across mobile devices-as well as on PC, via Facebook Gameroom and Steam.
