  • Takui Nanao

    cant wait , and dont get why ppl are against jap audio a few moths ago ppl were complaining on how theres no jap now there is so i cc no prob

    • Serge

      It’s the Internet, people complain about everything.

    • Draparde

      Most likely diffrent people complaining/just wanting something to complain about lol.

    • Rentekabond

      Like Draparde said, different people. Siliconera is not a hive mind. I’ve already explained why I, and I’m sure other people, are against Japanese-only audio in the western release.

    • almostautumn

      Jpn, man. “Jap” can be mistaken as offensive.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      Sub-only is still better than no localization at all, at least Tecmo Koei is one of few company who are kind enough to give this option.

      Let those people keep bitching

  • JonathanisPrimus

    Drop shadows on subtitles? I dunno man.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Between this and Danganronpa, I’m gonna enjoy this Valentines day…..

    • MyBodyIsReady

      Forever alone…*pre-orders Toukiden*

    • Learii

      I know what you mean lol same here

    • MaximDualBlade

      I doubt you were eager to spend your 80-100 dollars on a couple XD. See you and lots of others online to hunt onis :)

    • I was so excited about those two releases that I hadn’t actually realised it was Valentine’s day until you mentioned it. Oops.

      • Guest

        Bravely default, Toukiden, Tales of Symphonia Chronicle , and Lightning Returns…
        Boy.. I’m gonna eat only instant noodles for this February (;w;)

    • God

      I would, IF I HAD MONEY!!

  • fairysun

    Her voice sounds familiar …
    I think she voice one of Project X Zone character, Imca.

    I think she also voice one of the female character in DW 8, but I am not sure which one. Pretty sure it’s not Zhen Ji, Yue Ying, Qiaos sisters, and SSX.

  • Interesting. Maybe this will be worth checking out after all.

  • TheExile285

    I wonder if you can view this in the game.

    • Ryujin

      I wouldn’t get my hopes up. The text at the start of the video says: “This animation serves as an introduction to the world of Toukiden: The Age of Demons and does not constitute part of the game.”

      That said, I would really like to see this on the Vita’s screen. There’s something special about watching something like this in the actual game, like the wait paid off and it’s finally yours.

  • Ric Vazquez

    Celebrate valentine’s day killing demons, not forever alone mind you XD

  • AkiraScare

    ONI BUTT (0_0) im BLIND!!!!

  • AkiraScare

    So Will multiplayer be with random people like Borderlands? im confused by the ad-hoc and internet thing (-_-‘)

    • TheExile285

      It will have online and ad-hoc. With online you can play with friends or ransoms.

      • AkiraScare

        Cool i will get it then… wat really confused me was the wikia for toukiden where it was talking about the psp version and then in other blogs i got really confused(-_-‘) but thanks for the clarification (^_^)

      • Chido55

        You force people to play with you?

        jkjk XD

  • cyberkinghardy

    Once her affinity is at maximum level with the protagonist, she will
    give him/her the recipe to create a replica of her weapon. Her long
    sword is the only one in the game with 106 critical. Higher affinity
    additionally increases the chances of her appearing within the village’s
    bathing area.
    -Koei Wiki

    Thumbs up for this one.
    Also applied to male characters, but who wants to see them bathing anyway?
