Time And Eternity’s Heroine Can Transform Into Her Alternate Personality

By Spencer . May 8, 2012 . 9:08pm

timeandFamitsu revealed a new detail about Time and Eternity’s heroine Princess Toki or should we say… Princes Towa? Toki, the only character we’ve seen in battle so far, has two personalities.


She can transform into Towa, which gives her a different set of attacks. Toki specializes in long range combat while Towa uses close range attacks. Changing between the two characters requires pepper. Towa has a different voice actress too. Eri Kitamura, Finnel in Ar Tonelico Qoga and Juliet Starling in Lollipop Chainsaw is Towa.


While the PlayStation 3 game is literally called Time and Eternity when translated into English, it can also be read as Toki and Towa. "Toki" being the character for time and "Towa" is the character for eternity. Imageepoch often abbreviates the title to Tokitowa.

  • Come to US

    • You’re making us sound like the dark side! We must ask nicely. “Please come over to the United States so we can bask in your glory. All hail TokiTowa.”

      • CirnoLakes

         Because we are the dark side.

        *beckoning glare*

        Yes… come to us… yes…

    Honestly I have a small fear of this game ending up like Asura’s Wrath.

    • Anime10121

       May I ask why/how?  They have absolutely NOTHING in common.  One is a wannabe CG tvshow with quick time events sparkled here and there (really disappointed by Cyber Connect with that game) while the other is a full-fledged RPG that has an anime artstyle (that so far looks GLORIOUS).

      • icecoffemix

        “the other is a full-fledged RPG that has an anime artstyle (that so far looks GLORIOUS).”

        Nope, at least nobody know yet, it COULD be a full fledged anime with RPG element sparkled here and there.

        His fear is not unfounded.

    • Göran Isacson

      Yeah I know what you’re talking about. There’s kind of this vibe that it will end up being more “thing that you watch” than “thing that you play”…

      Though I must admit, when I first read your comment my mind wandered and imagined A. Toki growling in rage and punching a dragon the size of the planet into space-dust and B. Asura in Toki’s dress.

      Also C. Asura taking the princes role in this game and thereby making it the shortest game ever.

    Well, I love Imageepoch’s games, so I’m buying this one for sure. And fully animation jRPG seem to be just so interesting, that I can’t wait for it.

  • Nerroth

    I’m guessing Towa is the other girl shown here: http://tokitowa.channel.or.jp/information.html

    (Note the blonde hair and eyes; and her holding a knife, in keeping with the “close range attacks” thing.)

    • icecoffemix


      • Nerroth

        Not sure.

        (Actually, I think that may have also been her in the “SD” April Fool’s joke: see the fake front cover at http://andriasang.com/con0gc/tokitowa_sd/ )

        As an aside, they should totally do an SD mini game for this.

        • icecoffemix

          I was half joking since the character designer is Vofan and the blonde one really looks like Shinobu from Nisio Isin Monogatari series. :p

          But good catch on that April Fools’ article, there was some truth in it after all. oO

      • More lk blond and longer hair Shiki.

        • icecoffemix

          Now then, Shiki from which series again?

          • Kara no Kyoukai. 

          • icecoffemix

            HOW? oO

            Oh the dagger, but come on…

  • puchinri

    Ahh, that explains the other lady character in the images. Very clever, imageepoch. =_=

    I’m really looking forward to this game even more now.

    Also, missing the last/other s on princess Towa.

  • E15

    *throws credit card at screen*. . . damn. .

  • No gameplay footage yet huh?

    • Hraesvelgr

      Yeah, I’m kind of wary about this game because of that, especially since the game supposedly comes out this year. Although, a lot of the battle screens look a bit off, so hopefully it doesn’t look terrible in motion.

  • boundries_san

    Alternate personality?…… Ar tonelico??? TAKE ALL MY GOLD!!!

  • Tom_Phoenix

    I guess whoever designed Toki/Towa must have really liked Launch (possibly NSFW):


    •  Ahah, my thoughts exactly. This character sprung to mind as soon as I read this!

  • Göran Isacson

    Ha ha, still nothing about the prince and what he will do in the game. Man they’re keeping the lid tight on this one.

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Pretty cool that they are actually using a different voice actress. I feel that in other games in which multiple personas are involved characters often use, noticeably, the same VA.

  • 肉@バカ夜空

    I don’t get it, Towa has an English VA? Isn’t Juliet Starling THE heroine for Lollipop Chainsaw?

    • usagi_san

      That’s just the other charater Eri Kitamura voices as well.

      EDIT: Spencer thought it would help with being able to recognise the VA better. What better to recognise a VA than by their recent roles?

    • Darkrise

      I think Spencer is talking about the jp voice of Juliet Sarling.

  • Darkrise

    So… She’s like Lunch(Launch) from DB? 

  • Shiki in another form. Less murderous and cuter of course. (Unless I am wrong)

  • AzureNova

    Hmmm, interesting, but I would like to see this transformation in action please =)

  • It just keeps getting better!

  • Solomon_Kano

    Well, this certainly SOUNDS interesting. Now let’s see it.

  • The title Toki to Towa reminds me of Towa no Quon :P
