Aksys Games brought Tengoku Struggle -Strayside- to Nintendo Switch in the west on April 4, thrilling players with one of Otomate’s most gripping stories yet. Among the key aspects that make it such an unforgettable experience are its characters, so let’s take a look at some of the principal players before diving into the journey through Heaven and Hell.

The cast of Tengoku Struggle -Strayside- is expansive and full of memorable personalities. Kicking things off with Goemon Ishikawa, here are a few to get us started on the adventure. Considering the fact that he was once known as the “greatest thief under the heavens,” it should come as no surprise that Goemon has his fair share of secrets. Whether or not he’ll share them with our protagonist, Rin, is another story entirely.

Yona Murakami is a swashbuckler at heart who died at the age of 23. How will he fit in with Rin and the others while rounding up the escapees from Hell?

With a name representing one of the masters of ukiyo-e prints, is Sharaku Toushuusai as dangerous as his reputation suggests?

JacK is shrouded in mystery, so the bigger question here is whether this multi-talented member of the cast will be friend or foe to Rin?

Rounding out our brief overview is Kikunosuke Uga, who went from being master thief Benten Kozo to existing as a voraciously hungry shapeshifter in the afterlife. Will he be able to keep his Desire in check over the course of the mission?

You’ll meet all of these characters and more in Tengoku Struggle -Strayside-, which is now available to own on Nintendo Switch. Order your copy today and let us know who ends up at the top of your list by the time the credits roll.
