Toukiden, the hunting game from Tecmo Koei and Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force, has players hunt Oni. Your warrior can pick one of four weapons to use. Let’s take a look at them.
The Long Sword is a well-rounded weapon with balanced attack speed, range, and power. I think the Long Sword looks long enough you need extra range you can charge up power and send a vacuum slash shockwave. The Long Sword’s special ability wounds oni. If you keep attacking the same spot you can cut deeper and deal additional damage.
Gauntlets are slow and heavy, but make up for their lack of speed with more damage. You can use the Furious Hundred Fists special attack to temporarily boost your attack speed and power.
The Bow is the only long range weapon in the game. Players can change the attack power to do either regular or strong attacks. The Curse Arrow skill marks enemies in a circle and locks on to them so you can hit multiple targets on an Oni. This skill also lets the warrior fire an explosive arrow that deals heavy damage.
Kusarigama is a versatile weapon that slices Oni with a sickle and crushes them with a weight on the other side. You have decent range with the Kusarigama and fast speed. The weapon’s special ability focuses your concentration and greatly increases your speed. In this state, you can throw the weight in mid-air and swoop in to attack Oni.
