Toukiden’s Latest Trailer Features A Wide Array Of Demon Hunting Weapons

By Sato . May 26, 2013 . 1:30pm

The Mononofu warriors of Toukiden will be going up against some tough demons in historic hunting action style. They will be getting some help from spiritual powers of legendary heroes, but the rest will be up to their skills and abilities. Tecmo Koei gives us a look at the weapons you’ll be using to purge demons in Toukiden.



Long Katana


The Long Katana is the most balanced weapon in terms of speed, range and power, making it the easiest weapon to use in Toukiden. It may not have the best of any attributes, but Long Katana users will have a good mix of mobility to go with their strikes. It also has abilities that create shock waves from charged powers, and is a proven versatile weapon against any demon.


Tekko Gloves


The armor-plated Tekko gloves pack quite the punch with their superior power. This is a heavy weight weapon and can be quite slow, but it has an ability that puts the enemy in a certain condition, where each following hit will do more damage, which makes up for its lack of speed.


Sickle and Chain


This weapon is unique and appearance and also attribute, boasting both “Cut” and “Break” attacks. The Mononofu who use this weapon can do strong sickle slashes in close-ranged combat, and can also use the chain for mid-ranged attacks. Its main feature is the grappling effect that allows you to climb on top of your enemies to hit spots that might be hard to reach with other weapons.




The Bow is a weapon with the “Stab” attribute, and can attack safely from a remote distance. It has various types of shots, such as a barrage shot that can be used against smaller demons and a charge shot for more damage against the much tougher large demons.


Dual Swords


Easily the speediest weapon for our Mononofu warriors, featuring both “Cut” and “Stab” attributes. The Dual Swords are used for quick and powerful consecutive attacks. Similar to the Sickle and Chain, it allows the player to reach higher parts of large demons by using additional jumps off attacks, making Dual Sword users a master of both land and air. The whirlwind ability can also deal some devastating damage to any demon out there.




The Spear isn’t your average ranged melee weapon in Toukiden. It features “Stab” and “Break” attributes that can be used in close and mid-ranged combat. Most of its attacks rely on holding down buttons for charges; however, the charges are pretty short so you’ll be able to pull off multiple attacks in a short amount of time.


Toukiden will be released on June 27th for PlayStation Vita and PSP in Japan.

    • Sergio Briceño

      And while they are at it. They could try colouring the characters hair too.

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        That’s default, characters are customizable in the full game.

  • Torraint

    wow,the combat was fluid.. too bad the weapon attack was way too flashy
    seems deserve a try anyway :D

  • kool_cid414

    Conflicted between dual sword and the chain sickle I always like to play the thief like quick attacking character but I’ve never tried anything like the chain and sickle. If this comes out here I definitely have to try out both.

  • MyBodyIsReady

    Wasn’t sold on this at the start but I gotta say it’s looking better and better

    • Have you played the patched demo? it’s better in my opinion

      • Vash bane

        agreed loved it

  • Marcelo Henrique Chaves

    Game looks awesome. Few points though.
    First i think the special effects is too much. Kinda confusing. But if you can turn off companions effects, then will be fine.
    Second, i know it’s a weapons show, but the enemies seemed extremely easy.
    I hope this don’t turn as a mindless hack and slash.
    But nevertheless, it will be a day 1 buy for me.

  • Prinny Dood

    Look on the web its is monster hunter its a soul sacrifice its “TOUKIDEN ” : )

  • Wow this is turning out to be real good.

  • KuchikiSentou

    More psyched for this each time; No clue it had aerial combat; wonderfully executed to boot!

  • Testsubject909

    Always had good faith in you Koei.

    Bring it and I’ll buy it. But please… Retail it.

    I can’t avoid to make comparison to Soul Sacrifice, and Toukiden graphics looks a little more defined and more colorful. Anyway, the strength of Soul Sacrifice was, probably, the intermission play, where you managed and choosed the spells, and the “Sacrifice” thing. If this game manages to offer as interesting strategy aspects, it could be a nice hit even in the West.

  • Christopher Nunes

    I am in LOVE with the Dual Swords! <3

    They're perfect for me! Please let this be localized!

  • WyattEpp

    I’m loving the spear mechanics, but I’m a little concerned at how distracting all the effects are. Still, I like hunting games, and the evolution of their design, so I’m in.

  • neogeno

    I have to say, this game is showing some excellent animation quality. The weapons all convey a nice sense of weight and impact on each hit. Speed isn’t sacrificed too much either. Its looks pretty well done.

  • Exkaiser

    Huh, can players not actually hit each other in this game? There’s a lot of places where it looks like their hitboxes should collide, but no tripping.

  • S- Class Wizard KaRamo

    awesome game can’t wait

  • Zonder88

    Why cant the team make Dynasty Warriors this engaging? Sigh
