After some anxiety, Toukiden 2 finally has platforms and release dates for the west: March 21 for America and March 24 for Europe on PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PC via Steam. Alongside this announcement, Koei Tecmo released a new trailer showing off some new characters and a new village.
Pre-ordering from Gamestop, Amazon, EB Canada, or Best Buy will net you the “Tenko Costume armor” which “allows Slayers to dress up as their fluffy companions.” You’ll also get skill and ability boosting “Mitama” for Sanada Masayuki, Sanada Noboyuki, Sarutobi Sasuke, and Chiku Rin In.
I’ll admit it: when I first saw news of this game pop up in my e-mail I thought “Toki-who?” After seeing Jordan make little hesitation in writing up that news I figured I should at least give it a shot. So with my sexy new router I downloaded the demo on PS4. In fact I downloaded a bunch of junk demos, so I was ready to hit that home button if it went south, but it didn’t. It was awesome. I tried using the ball and sickle which I’m not yet sure is my style but I like the unique fighter types and the combat itself.
Granted I never invested in a Vita so stuff like this and Soul Sacrifice slipped by me, but I love moments like this where I discover something great I didn’t know about before. Kind of like when I bought The Orange Box back in high school and said “Portal? What is this thing?” In any case, I want to try to play the first Toukiden now.
