Akaneiro: Demon Hunters is a free to play action online RPG from Shanghai-based Spicy Horse. The game takes on the mix of Little Red Riding Hood – a European fairy tale- and The Lost Wolves of Japan -a book about Japanese history, literature and folklore.
In Akaneiro: Demon Hunters, players roles play as demon hunters in an attempt to purge a village that has long been haunted by Yokai (Ghosts or Demons). The Yokai ends up being massacred in the face of the real Demon Hunters and ultimately the blood of the dead yokai turned into “Karma Shards”.
Along the way to explore the dark fantasy demon village, players will encounter oddly-formed demons and monsters that can be seen from Alice: Madness Returns.
The game is set to launch for web browsers, Tablets and PC later this year.

Flowing down from the deep central mountain ranges of Yomi Island, this river borders a deep pine forest and runs alongside the Temple Highroad.
In Shegimori River, players will find a powerful Ushi Oni that has rallied the Amano Imps to his banner to sow chaos on Yomi Island. At nightfall, they must infilitrate their territory, kill the Imp Captains, then take the head of their leader.
