News: If you are waiting for Toukiden 2’s release next Koei Tecmo has some new gameplay videos to whet your appetite.



”Toukiden

Koei Tecmo America has released a couple of new trailers for their upcoming game, Toukiden 2. It is slated to be released on March 21 and is a sequel to the popular demon-hunting RPG, Toukiden. Located amid the tattered landscapes of Toukiden 2, the seemingly peaceful village of Mahoroba is riven by internal conflict. Despite being tasked with the protection of Kagura, the Shrine Maiden, the town’s two rival clans – the Samurai and the Imperial Guard – clash for dominance, jeopardizing the safety and the future of the sanctuary settlement. In an effort to defuse the tension, the Holy Mount has sent in its own force of Slayers, but their presence feels more like a threat than a path to a peaceful solution. Will the new Slayer who mysteriously appeared on the outskirts of Mahoroba unite the irate guardians, or will the devastating events that tore once-allied factions apart prevail and sound the end of humanity?

Forced to confront both internal and external conflicts, the player’s battle skills and strategic acumen will be put to the ultimate test. Toukiden 2 offers a multitude of diverse weapons to suit any combat style, including swords, spears, knives, gauntlets, chain-sickles (kusarigama), bows, clubs, polearms, and rifles. Additionally, two series-first weapon types make their debut in Toukiden 2: the Sword & Shield, a combination offering a solid blend of offense and defense, and the Chain Whip, which allows for fast-paced maneuvers that can quickly tear apart Oni flesh. Each armament can be used for light and heavy attacks alike, and each offers special abilities that can be combined with the versatile Demon Hand to balance the scales of power when battling Oni.

Weapons can be personalized and enhanced with the assistance of the freed souls of fallen heroes, known as Mitama. Defeating larger foes will free Mitama from their Oni captors, and can then be used to empower the player’s weapon, armor, or the Demon Hand with boosts in Attack, Defense, Speed, Healing, and Control. New to the Toukiden series, the element of Control specializes in summoning Oni to fight for the player. Once summoned, subservient Oni will attack incoming foes as well as act as a decoy to help escape an enemy’s grasp. However, only three Mitama can be equipped at a time, so choosing the best combination during pre-battle preparation offers an important tactical edge, and helps balance the scales when facing foes as deadly as the Oni.

Take a look at the two new trailers that were released to coincide with this new information and tell us what you think. Will you be picking up Toukiden 2?
