Akaneiro: Demon Hunters beta pits Little Red Riding Hood against Yokai in feudal Japan



Akaneiro: Demon Hunters, the next game from American McGee's Spicy Horse, is holding beta sign-ups right now via its official site. First, we suggest checking out the first-ever gameplay trailer above to get a feel for the hand-painted, dungeon-crawling, demon-slaying action.

Akaneiro is a free-to-play ARPG that tells the story of Little Red Riding Hood, set in feudal Japan. As a member of the Order of Akane, Red must rid the Hokkaido village of the invading Yokai, demons inspired by Japanese folklore.

After the launch of Alice: Madness Returns with EA last year, McGee has left behind traditional console development to create free-to-play, browser-based games such as Big Head Bash, and now, Akaneiro. Sign up for the beta here.
