Update 5:20 a.m.: Famitsu has shared a few additional details and first screenshots.
In Maglam Lord, you will go on an adventure to forge “magic swords.” The protagonist is a once-powerful demon lord who has since lost his power. (You can choose your gender at the start of the game.) You will adventure with “partners,” and “marriage partner search” elements are involved in the gameplay.
On the system side, you can enjoy speedy battles with simple controls and elements of hack-and-slash as you take down tough magical beasts to collect materials and forge new magic swords.
The protagonist is Killrizark, the demon lord of swords. This version of Killrizark is voiced by Ryuichi Kijima:
And this Killrizark is voiced by Akari Kitou:
Killrizark is a survivor of the “demon lord species” on the brink of extinction. “Get in my way, and both the gods and the demon lords will be ruthlessly hacked to bits.” At the end of this wild behavior, they were subjugated by both sides as an “enemy of the world,” and went into a deep sleep to recover. They have no intention of changing their ways upon awakening.
Satius (voiced by Atsumi Tanezaki) is the demon lord’s faithful and hard-working servant in preparation for their revival. Although not gifted in the martial arts, Satius is skilled in black magic and knowledge, and willfully supports, admonishes, and watches over the demon lord. Satius tends to feel inadequate and often sighs. Their gender is unknown.
