Demon Hunting Game Toukiden Gets Prequel Manga

Toukiden is getting a prequel manga, according to a Comic Natalie report translated by ANN. The manga will take place several years before the game’s story begins.


As previously reported, Toukiden takes place in a world where a great disaster caused a split in the heavens and earth, and resulted in an invasion of demons. A group of people called Mononofu then rose up to defend the land against these demons, and have been battling them over 1,000 years.


The prequel manga, titled Toukiden Woniuchi, will be available as an e-book on Sony’s Reader Store starting this Wednesday, and is being authored and drawn by Urasuke Ayano. Five chapters are planned over the course of five months.


Toukiden will be available in Japan this Thursday for the PSP and Vita. The game is headed to North America and Europe in late 2013 on the Vita.

      It’s a Prequel but we don’t know how far back it is as it could be anywhere in the 1,000 years between the start of all the chaos up to the game.

    I love the fact that KOEI is putting in so much for this. Hayatori and Ouka look pretty good! Also this will be Urasuke Ayano’s first work! I look forward to it.
