Watch Princess Toki’s Wedding Before Tragedy Strikes

By Spencer . July 26, 2012 . 10:27pm

Princess Toki should be celebrating, but her wedding to a dude she barely knows is a disaster. Why? Because her fiancée gets killed, but that doesn’t mean love is lost. In Time and Eternity: Toki Towa, she travels back in time hoping to change her fiancée’s fate.

 

She’s not alone on her quest. There’s a blue drake that travels with her and Towa – her blonde haired alter ego.

 

Time and Eternity: Toki Towa comes out on October 11 for PlayStation 3.

    • Darkrise

      Anime RPG… Where have you been all this time?

      • Testsubject909

        Not in any of the articles related to this game apparently.

  • malek86

    So she goes back in time to save a guy that she has known for all of five seconds, for what in all probability was an arranged marriage?

    This smells of a relationship based only on looks… so shallow (and he doesn’t even look good anyway :O).

    • Tom_Phoenix

      Well, to be fair, while arranged marriage always sucks, there are many benefits that come with marrying a prince. And while it’s true he’s hardly “prince charming” material, he isn’t completely terrible looking either and is at least of her age or close to it. Plus, there is also the fact that he sacrifices his life to save her, which means he is highly chivalrous.

      Overall, Toki/Towa could do a hell of a lot worse than this guy. Maybe that’s why she travels back in time to save him; beacuse she’s afraid of the “alternatives”.

      • malek86

        I don’t know about the alternatives, but that guy reminds me too much of Prince Valium from Spaceballs.

        • Testsubject909

          Ah, that guy.

          Well, that’s okay, it just means that maybe during her adventures she’ll find a bum guy in a trailer truck whom she’ll fall in love with along the way to reviving the prince and when the wedding starts they’ll get interrupted.

      • Testsubject909

        Chivalrous or simply socially trained into the same mentality as the others of his time, that is to say that woman are to be protected for they are weak and vulnerable as such it is the duty of a man.

        Not saying he’s not as good as he might seem to be, just saying that you migt read too much into him saving the woman he’s supposed to marry. Honor and Duty might play more of a role than Chivalry.

        I’m personally in the camp of: What the hell? Really? You’re going to save a guy you’ve only known for 5 seconds and who you’re forced into marriage with?

        • Tom_Phoenix

          Err….don’t you think Honour and Duty kind of play a role in Chivalry? I mean, one can’t exactly be considered much of a gentleman if he isn’t willing to protect a woman in distress.

          Sure, not every woman is weak and vulnerable; some are more capable of protecting themselves and others than most men are. But in this particular case, I don’t think it was wrong of the prince to try and protect Toki. Even if she has combat capabilities, at that moment, she was in a wedding dress and unarmed. Plus, the prince couldn’t possibly know she could transform into a blonde chick that knows kung fu (infact, Toki herself probably didn’t know either).

          I don’t know, I just find it a bit of a stretch to use the prince’s SACRIFICE as an example of discrimination towards women. That said, it is true that men have a natural instinct that causes them to be dumb and sacrifice themselves to protect a woman, even when the woman in question is quite capable of defending herself. Just ask Elaine Marley about that:

          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dP0I-ecM_AE

          • Testsubject909

            The main reason why I will separate Honor and Duty from Chivalry is that the first two in no way requires compassion, just a structured disciplined approach. Chivalry on the other hand to me is much more connected to certain aspects of compassion and selflessness, which while present in actions denoted by Honor and Duty, are not key components of Honor and Duty.

            Also, again, a man’s duty is to protect the children and women, this in no way is to denote any form of sexism so much so as social upbringing. You bringing it up in no way goes against my statement of Honor and Duty playing a major role and possibly moreso a role than Chivalry.

            My notes by the way were not about discrimination towards women so much so as just general atypical social upbringing.

          • Tom_Phoenix

            I apologise; it’s just that when you said “that is to say that woman are to be protected for they are weak and vulnerable”, I got the impression that you were implying that the action had sexist implications.

            As for your statement…while I sort of see your point, I kind of find it hard to believe that one could knowingly risk their life for the sake of another without SOME degree of compassion for said person (unless you are intentionally seeking death or don’t see much value in your own life, which is another story). Regardless, however, putting the well-being and safety of others ahead of your own is preety much the definition of selflessness.

            …Why do I get the feeling this discussion has gone way out of hand? XD

      • Testsubject909

        Just continuing here.

        Probably politically charged marriages in a medieval esque period of time, an arranged marriage most likely based upon duty and ambition or traditional values as opposed to emotional connections.

        Do you think he’d protect her out of Chivalry or out of Honor and Duty?

        I won’t deny he might be a nice guy, but I don’t rule out that he might just be one of those Kingdom and Duty above all, “We are the kingdom and as such we must do what is best for the kingdom” sort of person. And yes, I used the We to identify a single person, it’s interesting when you hear royalty in documentary or docufiction using that term and it makes sense since they’re supposed to own the country and as such are the country in some sense.

        Yes, I am walking all over those assumptions of true love in a split second with very dirty boots. It isn’t that I don’t enjoy them, it’s just that I enjoy taking alternative paths.

        Plus, we never know, the ending might indeed end up that the person she was going to marry has no personal feelings towards her while she herself might, in the course of her adventure, wind up falling in love with someone else.

        After all, all we’re given here is the starting premise. That hardly should tell us anything about the way the story ends. Hell, for all we know, she might have gone back in time and in the end was the one who orchestrated the whole assassination.

        Though I don’t really expect that twist to be in this game.

    How friggin’ DARE they destroy the cake?! Now you know I’d be kicking some ass if that happened at my wedding.

    • Barrit

       No kidding, wedding cakes are expensive! lol

    • Testsubject909

      Indeed, at least take the cake with you instead!

  • Tom_Phoenix

    Ok, seriously, where the HELL are the guards?! It’s amazing how five assassins were able to just barge through the front door (which itself is a preety silly thing; why would assassins even opt for a frontal charge?) without encountering any resistance at what is supposed to be a royal wedding. I mean, does the Kingdom of Whateverthehellthisis-land not have any knights or at least a militia? Whoever planned this wedding should be fired.

    That said, Toki looks so adorable when she’s angry. =P

    • cj_iwakura

      Maybe they’re on Alderaan.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

      The guards must’ve not even a professional. The wedding planner is her friend, Hats-with-glasses-chan.

    • Testsubject909

      Looking at royalty in general, and typical RPG statistics, guards are pretty low level enemies.

      • Tom_Phoenix

        True, but even guards have a sorting algorithm going on (meaning those protecting important locations tend to be more powerful than others). Plus, in castles, you can usually expect a few knights or at least a captain of the guard who’s job it is to protect the king/queen.

        I’m just wondering where the hell were those when this happened?

        • Testsubject909

          True but you also have to take into context whether or not the country is a peaceful one as such the power of the guards or royal guards may be far lower. If it’s a Kingdom as opposed to an Empire for example, there’s the odd chance that the Kingdom has low powered Royal Knights as opposed to the Evil Empire’s greater funding for their war assets.

          • Tom_Phoenix

            Fair enough, but all I’m saying is that I would have expected better protection at a royal wedding. Even if they ultimately failed to stop the assassins, it still shouldn’t have been possible for the assassins to just waltz in through the front door and assassinate the prince without them encountering significant resistance.

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    Perhaps it was mutual love at first sight, and that’s why she’s on her mission to save her love. Either way I just hope that it’ll be localized so I can do some time hopping and life saving as well. =^_^=

    • Testsubject909

      She should try and shack up with the player instead, just saiyan.

      Oh and… On another note… What happened to Ciel no Surge?

      • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

        I wonder about Ciel myself. One second it was all over the place, and now no word of it whatsoever. Time to start surfing the web to find out.

    THIS IS THE CHOICE OF STEINS GATE !!!

    • Darkrise

      Wrong game. =)

    • miju

       Except this time, Mayushii is the one doing it.

      (va joke, everyone…)

  • Darkrise

    I’m really liking the song, can’t say the same for Toki’s in-game design though. Or the ‘main’ guy.

    • Testsubject909

      The guy being a bit too much on the generic prince appearance? It really gives the impression that he’s just tossaway in the grand scheme of things. I’d actually be surprised if he ends up being absent from the rest of the game despite the initial objective for going back through time.

      And yeah, I get what you mean about the in-game design. It’s basically that feeling of watching an image pasted on another one that doesn’t exactly match up properly.

    Special Service Time!

    Kingdom of Gamza: A Kingdom with an age-old custom of having a marriage between the King of Knight and the Princess with magical abilities. Gamza, the capital of the Kingdom, is a beautiful city floating on water. Our story begins at the wedding ceremony of the main characters in the church.

    ***
    The Main Characters!

    The Player: A knight of the Kingdom of Gamza. Mutual affection led to an engagement with Toki. Have never kissed anyone in his 18 years of life. Looking forward to life after the marriage.

    Toki: Princess of the Kingdom. Wants to get married, but she’s developing some uncertainty. 16 years old.

    Towa: Toki’s other personality. A girl sleeping within Toki. Very different from the reserved Toki. A vibrant personality. Very unyielding. She first awoke during the wedding, when the player had just suffered a fatal blow.

    ***
    The Three Girls who Wish for Toki’s Happiness.

    Enda: Goes to the same school and is an underclassman of Toki. A very innocent girl who has a weakness for cute things. Kind of a romanticist. Can be pretty stubborn in some situations.

    Weidy: The wedding planner and a friend of Toki. Worries about everything, but always tries her best.

    Reijo: Toki’s best friend. A rich young lady who wishes for Toki’s happiness. She is somewhat strict with Toki. Has magical abilities.

    ***
    Drake: The blue pet drake who has always been with Toki.

    ***
    Those Involved in the Attack at the Wedding!

    Makimona: A fortune teller who has warned the princess about the attack before the wedding. She also dabbles in other jobs besides fortune telling. How is she involve in the attack by the Assassination Guild? Is it all just a coincidence that she was at the wedding as well?

    Bikodo: The leader of the Assassination Guild? After returning to 6 months before the wedding, the princess uncovered information that points to the Assignation Guild as the prime suspect of the attack. Why did he attack the two at the wedding? The princess takes her first step towards the truth.

    ***
    Gameplay System!

    Personality Change: The two personalities of the princess is the core attraction of the story, and the same holds true during battle. Whenever the princess levels up, the player is given the choice to switch personality. There are enemies that require either Toki or Towa in order to defeat them. So base on the situation, the player is required to do the switching cautiously when leveling up. Of course, there is an item that can be used to switch personalities at will, but it is scarce and limited in the game. That’s why the players should use it sparingly, for it could be the key to winning battles.

    Gift system: The game involves a special gift system, which can be used to unlock Toki and Towa’s hidden abilities. At first look, it is nothing special. Simply put, it is just a matter of earning GP to unlock skills in a skill tree with parallel branches. More info coming soon.

    Special Events: On the map, there are many places known as “Place of Memories”. Both Toki and Towa have special memories in these places. When visiting these places, special events will occur for either character.***
