Toukiden, Tecmo Koei’s Oni Hunting Game, Adds Dual Swords And Spear Weapons

By Spencer . April 2, 2013 . 10:05pm

imageToukiden, a historical hunting game from the makers of Dynasty Warriors, has at least six weapons. We saw four of them earlier. Two more were revealed in Famitsu. The Dual Swords give your warrior air attacks, a speedy dash, and a spin attack. Equip the spear to get piercing and crushing attacks. You can also do a dive attack where you leap and swoop into enemies.

 

Players can align their warrior with different spirits historical Japanese characters in Toukiden. Abe no Seimei is a "soul" type spirit that can shoot out spirit power. Hanzo Hattori greatly boosts speed at the cost of vitality.

 

Toukiden is slated for release on June 27 for PSP and PlayStation Vita.

    Ooo, Abe no Seimei? I only know about that name from Nurarihyon no Mago (which I never finished or don’t even know if it’s done).

    • xXDGFXx

      It finished. Great ending.

    I wish there were more VITA games that approach graphics like this.. Native res, good textures, nice character models, decent AF.. It may look a little barren but at least its very sharp and clean.. much easier on the eyes.

    Toukiden’s one of my most anticipated games. And knowing that TECMO KOEI loves to make ports, I’m sure this one will also be available on PS3 at a much later date.

    By the way, here’s the 2 remaining NPCs;

    The blonde one is the character with the spear-like weapon. The other guy is the one with the stylish dual swords. Also, here’s Hattori Hanzō and Abe no Seimei.

      Thanks for leaving those scans here. :)

      • http://fr.twitch.tv/Nhatalya Aleksandrina

        You’re welcome. :)

        So the blonde character is named Hayatori, and the ninja-like guy is named Ibuki.

        Me too! :D I was so expecting a blonde guy, looks like I was right! ^o^

    HEY YOU JOURNALISTS! Love Toukiden stuff, definitely liking it, BUT DYNASTY WARRIORS 8 JUST GOT ANNOUNCED FOR THE WEST! HURRY UP WITH THE ARTICLE.

      Patience is a virtue and benevolence is cake.

    Can’t believe I’m excited for the closest full retail MH clone just yet (That UI is definitely NOT helping)..

    Someone bring me down! It’s probably just playing with my Onimusha fantasy!

    Gorgeous game… and i mean that it looks so clean and sexy. There are some good moments as well especially when playing adhoc with 3 friends to take down that Ogre mission. 20 minutes passed and its life was still around 3/4. Not to mention that quest to take down 10 goblin-like monsters while 1-2 boss Spiders are chasing after you.
    Hopefully they’ll fix the horrible frame rate drop during area buff/debuff spells (most especially when you have a boss locked on a shock-trap-like spell and 2 players with fists do that hundred-fists move + 1 that “stamina circle” buff.
