Exploding stars are to blame for Demon Tribe's dream world invasion

Demon Tribe

Bemused? Don’t be. We’re only talking about Sega’s latest addition to the Japanese Apple  AppStore, Demon Tribe.

Taking place in the not-too-distant future, the shock wave generated from the explosion of Betelgeuse, a star in the Orion constellation, results in the opening of a rift between our world and the dream world which in turn allows demons from said dream world to run rampant across Earth.

The solution to such a unique problem? Send out agents of the secret ‘Omega Surveillance’ society to clean up demon outbreaks by absorbing them and then transforming into them.

Demon Tribe‘s gameplay consists of co-op 3 vs 3 battles which can be fought alone or with friends. Following battles, the stats and abilities of players’ ‘Agents’ can be increased, RPG style.

It’s certainly a lot to get your head around, but I’m sure a Western version of Demon Tribe would certainly help. Considering Sega’s other recent iOS game, Sonic Dash, has gone down well (at least with Alex) perhaps such a localisation isn’t too far-fetched. What do you reckon? Let us know in the comments below!
