First Look At Toshin Toshi, Imageepoch’s 3DS Adventure RPG

By Spencer . October 24, 2013 . 1:44am

Time and Eternity developer Imageepoch is developing a Nintendo 3DS game and it’s a remake of a 22 year old PC game. Toshin Toshi for Nintendo 3DS uses the sequel, Toshin Toshi II, as a base. The game has a gift system that lets players bond with different female characters in the game which makes characters more reliable (presumably in battle) and leads to special events.


Toshin Toshi is slated for release on January 30.

    XSeeD pls

  • School Idol Addict

    Toshin Toshi II is 19 years old not 22.
    It was released in 1994.

    • He didn’t even say Toshin Toshi II is 22 years old. o.o

    • quasadra

      remake of the first title, which was 22 years ago, using a 19 years old sequel as base.

      i have never heard of this game until now though.

      • School Idol Addict

        Oh ok, i misunderstood what he meant.
        And i had never heard about that game too until just a few days ago when an english patch was released for Toushin Toshi 2

  • ChiffonCake

    Hm? How is Alicesoft involved?

    • Ferrick

      isn’t the original from PC-98 made by alicesoft ?

      • ChiffonCake

        Ah, is it? I didn’t know.

  • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

    If i cant name the protag no buy (Im sure we wont be able)

    • $36598391

      That wouldn’t deter me from getting this game

      I only use default names on characters anyway

      • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

        Its just that games with date elements with a fixed MC doesnt makes sense to me unless is based on an anime.

        • LudoRathowm

          The game has a fixed canon, Seed Cashima is the protagonist, Hazuki Mizuhara is his love interest.

          • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

            Too bad then.

        • Ferrick

          lol just admit that you want in for some of the actions

          • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

            Of course “I” want but i cant because im just making “the” character get the action, and thus this game potential is wasted. :/

        • $36598391

          Hakuoki the PS2 game was the original release in the series
          The anime was based on the game

    • lol that say so much about you….

      • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

        I know, i just like immersion in my games.

        Wich is why ATLUS rocks so hard.

  • Splinter

    I hope NISA brings this to the west, but chances may be low. Sol Trigger (also from Imageepoch) probably will not be localized too. I’m saying NISA because of Time and Eternity, but be my guests, XSEED and Aksys.

    • LudoRathowm

      I hope they don’t, or I at least hope they bring it across translated correctly.
      I don’t want to see “Tournament of the Gods” or any shit like that.

      • DyLaN

        …..I don’t see anything wrong with tht line. I’ve seen worser translation than this.

        • LudoRathowm

          “Tournament of the Gods” is not an accurate translation of the title by any means. How you can extract that from “Toushin Toshi” is beyond me.

          • DyLaN

            Oh, I thought you mean stuff like grammar or the way its phrased. I’m not familiar with this series.

    • School Idol Addict

      I wonder if there’s even a chance of this coming in the west.
      Alicesoft never really cared about anyone outside of Japan.

      They often block anyone outside of japan from accessing their websites and buy games from them.

      • doubleO7

        After the controversy surrounding some of their 18+ games on this side of the pond, that doesn’t really surprise me. However, since this 3DS games will obviously have the graphic sexual content removed, I would like to think that they’re aversion to foreign markets wouldn’t apply to it.

        Then again, they may not want anything to do with the western markets ever again after the issues they’ve had.

    • DyLaN

      Well ST and 7D2020/II are on the PSP while this is on the 3DS so it might have a chance.

  • Aristides

    This looks more like a Marvelous Game rather than an Imageepoch game XD. *announcer* It’s not a 3DS RPG!♪ It’s PORN!♪
    (lol I’m joking of course)

  • Sanjima

    Isn’t the original game, you know… *cough*coughah-game?cough*cough*

    • Ferrick

      yes it is *coughcoughcoughahgamecoughcough*

      • Morricane

        I’m just too pure to even fathom what *coughcoughcoughahgamecoughcough* could mean :)

    • DyLaN

      Don’t worry, console ver can’t have any H-scene ;)

  • Lemski07

    got me interested, im just a year older than the game. (fanservice) whistle whistle..

  • LudoRathowm

    It doesn’t seem to be a remake of Toushin Toshi using the second as a base, it just seems to be a remake of the second one with the title “Toushin Toshi”.
    All of the characters shown are from Toushin Toshi II, there is nothing linking it to the original game at all other than the title.

    • brian

      Well technically they are linked because each of the main games is about one tournament in a city.

  • pekikuubik

    I think I’ll play the original instead. Somehow the actual act of sex looks more tasteful than whatever titillating fanservice this remake is doing.

    It seems Imageepoch’s dream of saving the JRPG is still very far from being reality.

    • $36598391

      Well keep in mind it’s being released on a Nintendo product of all things

      • Even with that in mind, IE have been trying to play up the titillating fanservice aspect without actually delivering anything saucy and exciting, so I under what pekikuubik means.

        • $36598391

          It would be nice if a company brought over the original version and it’s sequel even though I don’t play RPGs for Hentai scenes, those elements are best left to Visual Novels

      • DyLaN

        Generally, console ports of H-VNs/games usually are cleaned up regardless of consoles. Just some FYI.

    • DyLaN

      Sol Trigger/7D2020? I heard those games are good.

  • Sergio Briceño

    I read imageepoch and became interested. Then, I saw a lot of gorgeous 2D girls and got excited. Hopefully it’s also a nice game and not only eye candy.

  • Plot!

  • Göran Isacson

    I do hope that reliable in this instance just means that they get stronger in battle. If they are AI-controlled and you have to give them gifts in order to have them act favorably though, then…. welp, not sure I will be very onboard with that.

    • LudoRathowm

      They would have to rewrite the story for the girls to actually join you in battle, for the most part Seed is alone in his fight, the Girl’s Gift system will likely give Seed various powerups based on who you’re gifting things to.

      • Göran Isacson

        Okay, so they’re more like stat boosts than allies, then? That sounds a bit easier to handle.

  • kylehyde

    If we change every “o” for “u” and every “i” for “y” on the title then…..oh nevermind

  • TheExile285

    God dammed, 3DS region locking! >_<

  • Fight on, figurehead of JRPGs… Fight on…

  • Foryth

    As crazy as it might sound, I’m getting more and more tempted to get a japanese 3DS in addition to my NA one.

  • smashbrolink

    So this isn’t coming state-side?
    I hope that changes….
