Spicy Horse, the developers behind Alice: Madness Returns, have released a first gameplay look at the action-RPG Akaneiro: Demon Hunter.

In much the same way that Spicy Horse took the tale of Alice in Wonderland and turned it into a dark fantasy where Alice brandished a large butcher knife for the majority of the game, Akaneiro is a more twisted vision of a different fairy tale.

In the video showing off an alpha build of the game above, you'll see a mixture of references to Red Riding Hood, as well as historical Japanese influences that set the tone of danger as players face off against the main threat of yokai.
