As we grow nearer and nearer Oni's impending January release date, more details about this game are being released every day. GameSpot has released their preview of what should be a visually stunning example of 3rd-person action.

Their detailed preview, based on a demo of the game they witnessed at a Gathering of Developers press event, discusses the storyline, characters and motivations behind the main character Konoko and her enemies. There is also some discussion of the environments and obstacles Konoko will face, as well as a detailed list of the weapons available. Here is just a sample of Konoko's arsenal:

Vandergraph pistol: This handheld pistol discharges a powerful bolt of electricity that can stun nearly any of the TCTF soldiers you'll run into, letting you either run away or attack them while they're stunned.

Mercury bow: Arguably one of the most visually appealing weapons in Oni, the mercury bow fires a supercooled sliver of mercury that can pierce all but the most solid of objects. This weapon acts as the standard sniper rifle in Oni, and while ammunition is very limited, it is quite deadly.

Screaming cannon: This massive rifle creates an energy field that tracks the nearest enemy and traps them for an indefinite amount of time.

Oni is due for a simultaneous release for Mac, PC and Playstation2 in late January, complete with animated cutscenes drawn by the creators of the Bubblegum Crisis series.
