Ehrgeiz Developers Working On Toshinden Revival

imageLate last year Tomy announced a new Toshinden game for Wii. Screenshots were shown, but we haven’t seen or heard about the game since.


Speaking with Tomy USA I learned Toshinden is being planned as a mixed media project similar to .hack. Dream Factory, the developers of Ehrgeiz and Tobal No. 1, are working on the game. A few new pieces of concept art appeared on the Toshinden blog, but the game still doesn’t have a release date.


I asked if Tomy USA plans on publishing Toshinden here. A representative said, “we hope to be able to launch it.”

    Loved Toshiden and Tobal NÂș1.

    I’m looking forward to hearing from this revival

  • I recall screenshots of this thing turning up a few months ago. So it isn’t vapourware after all. I was wondering what had happened to it.

    • Me too. I thought this looked pretty good so I made it a point to ask.

  • Definitely looking forward to this. I remember playing it, but moreso I remember sticking the Saturn disc into a cd player to listen to the music. I hope it’s just as good as the old stuff.

  • Hero of Legend

    Wow, thanks for finding out who’s developing this! First real update on the game since way back when it was unveiled! :D

  • LordGeo

    Really cool to see Dream Factory developing this game. I still hope that at least Eiji Shinjo and Vermilion from the original series can make it into the game as hidden cameo characters.

    And the whole “mixed media” idea sounds interesting… I’m guessing Takara Tomy wants to have an accompanying anime and manga for this game.

    • That’s the vibe I got, which is why it could be taking so long to prepare everything.

    • Hero of Legend

      Actually, there’s already been a Manga at Dengeki that’s been getting updated throughout the past few months.

    I love Ergheiz and I remember that I liked Toshinden, this is going to be good. I hope it’s cel shaded.

    Something about the art reminds me of “The World Ends With You” and the “Kingdom Hearts” series
