Everything We Know About Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess Story Plot

The game takes place on Mt. Kafuku, a land that was once blessed by nature until it became suddenly corrupted by a dark substance called the "defilement." This transforms the mountain and steals the sacred masks imbued with the Goddess’ powers to threaten and corrupt the villagers. You play as Soh as you guide the maiden Yoshiro as you set out to purify the neighboring villages along with the other surviving villagers and bring peace back to the mountain using the remaining masks.

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess Gameplay

In Capcom’s Gameplay Deep Dive, the game is described to be an action-strategy defense game that revolves around the day and night cycle. It is a real-time action strategy game that will have you fighting off several demons and enemies along with the villagers to defend the maiden as you purify the neighboring villages in Mt. Kafuku. In comparison, it seems to build around the core concept of Rampage Missions from Monster Hunter: Rise which has you build several contraptions and different towers to defend the gates of Kamura.

Day – Setting Up the Defense

During the day, the main goal is to purify the way to the Torii gates that connect to another world and sever the connection to purge the defilement. These gates open during nighttime and let the demonic Seethe attempt to steal the maiden’s powers.

To help you in your defense of the maiden against the Seethe, you can purify the afflicted villagers with the masks and give them roles such as the following:
 ●  Woodcutter, a melee-oriented fighter armed with an axe.
 ●  Archer, a ranged fighter with a bow to strike enemies from afar.
 ●  Ascetic, a debilitating ranged role that is skilled in demon binding.

  • There are still more roles that have yet to be revealed, so stay tuned for more updates.

Additionally, you can freely place the assigned villagers to strategic points in the map to make the defense phase easier and make the best use of the roles that the villagers are assigned to.

Soh is also accompanied by a carpenter whom you can assign to repair different buildings in the map such as watchtowers and gates. For instance, a constructed watchtower can be used by a newly assigned Archer to make use of the high ground.

In summary, the daytime routine will be to make repairs, purify villagers, and purify the way to the Torii gate as much as you can in order to purge the defilement of the villages.

Night – Actual Defense

When night arrives, the Torii gates will open and the Seethe will invade the village to try and take the maiden’s powers. There are several types of different enemies in the game and they will come at a huge number to overwhelm you and the villagers. You will be forced to switch up your tactics from time to time to focus on different enemies as you might need to prioritize certain enemies and defend specific areas of the map.

As Soh, you have several abilities that can help you in defeating the oncoming Seethe as well as defending the maiden. You can even change the villager’s placements and roles in real-time to increase the odds of defending the maiden better.


There are also more fearsome enemies called the "Festering Seethe" which are more powerful variants than the normal enemies you encounter. These enemies will need cooperation and coordination from you and the villagers to defeat and will be the key to victory.

Fend off the invading Seethe with your allies until the sun rises which will end up as the game’s gameplay loop.
