You can order your copy of this powerful period piece today via Aksys Games, and read on for a closer look at what makes this emotional tale work below. 

The year is 1716. The Tokugawa shogunate establishes the Oniwaban as a secret group tasked with keeping monster attacks at bay in Edo and maintaining peace in the city. 11 years later, far from Edo, a girl born with special powers has been driven out into the snowy mountains. The terrified townspeople did this because of the girl’s ominous power that allows her to see a “black thread” whenever a disaster is about to occur. 

The paths of the girl and this secret group collide when the Oniwaban appear before her to tell her she is needed in Edo. Her power, which previously only welcomed misfortune, will soon prove to be an invaluable asset to the Oniwaban and their constant conflict with the ever-present monsters surrounding the city. 

Will further calamities foretold by our heroine’s powers come to fruition, or will she help the Oniwaban fight off their adversaries once and for all? Forge your own bonds and find out the secrets at the depths of these mysteries, complete with multiple endings to discover, and order your copy of Winter’s Wish: Spirits of Edo on Nintendo Switch today.
