Aragami is a third-person stealth game where players control Aragami, an undead assassin with supernatural abilities summoned back from the grave by Yamiko, a mysterious girl with ties to Aragami's past. Yamiko is being imprisoned by Kaiho - The army of Light - whose warriors guard the heavily fortified citadel of Kyûryu.
Using his newly acquired Shadow Powers, Aragami can manipulate darkness to become the ultimate ninja assassin. With strong influences from stealth classics such the Tenchu Saga, or more modern stealth gems like Mark of the Ninja and Dishonored, players will need to use all their supernatural powers, wit and cunning to defeat their enemies.
- Control the shadows - Use your Shadow Powers to become the ultimate stealth killer. Cast shadows on any surface and use your Shadow Leap to move around undetected. Dispose of enemy corpses using your Shadow Vanish, create shadow clones to distract your enemies or invoke black holes to swallow your targets in one fell swoop.
- Become a master assassin - As you advance your powers will evolve to let you sneak past guards, teleport between shadows, create your own areas of darkness and strategically assassinate those who stand in your way.
- Piece together your fate - The twin souls of Aragami and Yamiko share a common destiny. Fight your way through the heavily guarded city of Kyûryu to reach Yamiko and uncover the secrets that lie in your past.
