Ikki Tousen: Xross Impact Busts On To PSP

By Spencer . October 23, 2009 . 12:07am


Marvelous is continuing their series of side-scrolling Ikki Tousen beat ‘em ups with Ikki Tousen: Xross Impact. The story picks up from Ikki Tousen: Great Guardians and has a new scenario. Six characters, including a never before seen fighter, rounds the playable roster to 22.


Ikki Tousen: Xross Impact will also have new techniques, new modes, and a new “costume destruction” feature. Japan gets the PSP game on April 1, 2010.

Oh, this must be the costume destruction feature Marvelous was talking about…

    Lol, costume destruction? Um, yes I agree it was prolly the only feature that was missing in the original release. As they say, any reason is a good reason to publish a new Ikki game :)

  • I’ve never read/seen any of the Ikki Tousen series and don’t really have an interest. I do, however, love beat ’em ups. Has anyone played the previous games? If this game ends up being cheap and actually has a reputable background I wouldn’t mind playing, especially if there is Co-Op. I imagine these are pipe dreams because it really is looking like a typical ‘fan service over substance’ game.

    I started reading Ikki Tousen when Tokyopop started releasing it in North America. Kind of lost interest, though, so haven’t read anything past the first three volumes.
    The premise was alright, but it was the fight scenes that I really liked. Very well drawn and easy to follow in the manga. =3

    I’ve never played any of the games, but beat-em-ups are generally pretty awesome.

      I don’t really think anyone reads/watches Ikkitousen for anything other than the fanservice/fighting, anyway. Hell, the massive amounts of nude/near-nude PVC models of the characters is pretty much proof of that.

  • Oh wow. Nice pun in the headline.

  • I wonder if this game has better chance at being localized than the PS2 game that was cancelled a few months back?

    Probably not . . . but who knows? Maybe if they got in touch with TokyoPop (manga publisher) or Funimation (DVD publisher) this time around it might actually work out.
