Meet The Slayers Association In Toukiden

By Ishaan . February 4, 2014 . 9:30am

In Toukiden, an organization called the “Slayers” has dealt with Oni for over a thousand years. Tecmo Koei have provided profiles for the slayers you’ll meet in the game via the official Toukiden website. You can check them out below.

 

Oka:

She is a master of the sword and serves as the central figure within the Slayers of Utakata. Her ability as a Slayer is unmatched within the organization. She is willing to give her life to protect those causes that are close to her, and she possesses an unwavering conviction.

 

Nagi:

A master of the bow with unmatched accuracy, she is also a scholar who researches Oni. She is well-liked due to her calm and gentle personality, but tends to display a childlike innocence and joy when her curiosity is piqued.

 

Fugaku:

A courageous warrior of many battles, he fights with the power of his fists. He loves nothing more than a good fight and can be harsh with his choice of words, but he is also very dependable and is often thought of as a big brother figure to those around him.

 

Hatsuho:

The youngest Slayer, she wields her sickle & chain with confidence and hates to lose. She despises being looked upon as a child and tries to act older than she appears, which leads to constant teasing from those around her. However, she is a strange young girl who at times does seem to be wise beyond her years.

 

Hayatori:

Lightning quick with his knives, he completes his assignments in a professional and detached manner. He usually carries out his missions alone and rarely speaks unless necessary. As a result, he is often isolated from those around him, but nobody can doubt the abilities he possesses as a Slayer.

 

Ibuki:

A master of the spear and veteran of many battles, he portrays himself as a free-spirited man that cannot be bound by convention and as a flippant ladies man. In actuality, he is quite serious and is determined to ensure that his friends always return home safely from the battlefield.

 

Toukiden will be available on February 11th in North America and February 14th in Europe for the PlayStation Vita.

  • AlphaSixNine

    Hatsuho <3

  • Slickyslacker

    I hope Hatsuho and Hayatori are playable.

    • TheExile285

      Well, none of these characters are playable; you make your own character in the game.

      However, you can bring these characters on missions and raise their friendship levels through various means.

      • Slickyslacker

        Ah, I see. It’s a shame that they’re merely AI-controlled, then.

        • icecoffemix

          Their playstyle are practically a carbon copy of you with respective weapon anyway.

  • TheExile285

    Based on the demo, the cast seems pretty likeable. One more week!! ^_^

    • Ric Vazquez

      Oh Yeah

      • God

        I need money!!! WHY SO MANY RELEASES!

  • pixxxelz

    Nagi <3

  • neocatzon

    Hatsuho.. those shoes, so pro.

    • TheExile285

      HAHAHA, I just noticed the shoes xD

      • icecoffemix

        Really? Then I guess you also didn’t notice the thing on her back. ;)

        • cyberkinghardy

          You mean the ribbon?

          • icecoffemix

            Is that really a ribbon…?

      • neocatzon

        It’s not even tengu getas..

    • tarbis

      All I know is that high heels are not worn that way. Oh well, who am I to judge her fashion sense. XD

  • Strain42

    I hated Hatsuho…

    I played the demo for this, and it made me realize that I really suck at this game, so I dunno if I’ll be buying it or not. I just couldn’t beat that giant spider thing…

    • MXC

      Did you try attacking the essence or just slash away at it?

      • Strain42

        I think I tried both. Is the essence that thing where it becomes purple? I’ll confess I didn’t pick up on the mechanics too well. I’m insulting my ability, not the game itself. I did really like what I played of it. I was just bad at it :P

        • MXC

          Yeah I saw a lot of people complain on forums about not being able to kill it, asking what the purple stuff is, and seeing people play terribly (against the spider) online. Not exactly saying you but quite a few people thought that since its a hunting genre game that it was basically a kill everything without aiming anywhere in particular.

          • icecoffemix

            Wait if they don’t know about purification do they go through the demo with only the initial equipment/shop bought?

          • MXC

            Some maybe but I was mainly talking about people being clueless when it came to the big oni. Also the AI chars tend to purify stuff for you So they can make armor stuff without having to purify stuff themselves which now that I think about quite a few people also tend to do without using their Mitama so I wonder if they don’t know how to use Mitama either.

    • icecoffemix

      - Don’t hesitate to heal.
      - Prioritize purifying the broken part, you can’t really damage the oni until then.
      - Manhunter telegraph most of his attack, don’t just mindlessly attack him. Roll away if you see him preparing to attack.
      - Try not to stand in front of him if he’s not downed.
      - At about halfway of his hp he gain new powerful rolling attack + stone throw, stop attacking when he do and just get away, it’ll be over soon.

    • Dylan Anantha

      Use bow if you want, its hilariously overpowered. A MonHun bow user would completely annihilate everything in Toukiden due to how versatile and powerful Toukiden’s bow is. Combine that with the Support Mitama and you can destroy all the monsters parts in 5 mins.

  • KoRLumen

    These character designs are absolutely gorgeous.

    • icecoffemix

      From the Gust side, nice decision from KT. :)

      • Slayven19

        Really? I mean they sorta still look like Koei designs but props to gust I guess. Love them all.

        • icecoffemix

          Really. And have you played the game? The ingame drawn portraits are good match for the 3d character design.

  • Kornelious

    Oh how i wish we could romance these characters :(

    • TheExile285

      >.>
      <.<

      So… which one would you go after if you could? Nagi for me

      • https://twitter.com/BinksFrost Binks5

        Shikimi

      • Kornelious

        >.>
        <.<

        Oka, without a doubt ;D

        • Earthjolly

          That white fox

          • icecoffemix

            Mine is green though :o

        • DarkLight

          Don’t you touch mai waifu!

      • XiaomuArisu

        HATSUHO!

        • TheExile285

          ExpectedFromYou/10 ;P

          • XiaomuArisu

            You know me too well~

          • DyLaN

            As expected of the pervert duo!

          • XiaomuArisu

            Wait…We are a duo?!?

          • TheExile285

            Pfffffffffffffffffft. He has me mixed up with Ryuenjin93! :V

          • XiaomuArisu

            LIES!!!! T.T

        • TrueDefault

          *Internet hi 5*

          • XiaomuArisu

            HI5!

      • DarkLight

        Nagi..hmm is it the boobs?

        • TheExile285

          No not completely. I like a girl with a great smile and gentle personality.

        • Julio D. Zulkarnain

          The plot.

      • Dexward

        Yuu.

        Welp, time to say my goodbyes.

      • Ric Vazquez

        Wise choice my friend,wise, she’s the best “plotwise”

    • X_Bacon

      You mean we can’t? Oh…

      • icecoffemix

        To my understanding you can social link them all (along with other NPC) up to rank 9 in Persona term.

    • DarkLight

      Yeah,was thinking the same thing during the demo….make it happen in a sequel Temco!

  • https://twitter.com/BinksFrost Binks5

    man Hatsuho’s shoes, how does she walk with those. Depending on budget will most likely get it in March but im sure looking forward to it

  • alexis cortes

    Oka <3

  • Raine

    Am I the only one to think that Ibuki is a perfect character?

  • z_merquise

    I like how both male and female characters looked so cool and attractive.

    And in case of Fugaku, very f*ckable. (it’s coming from the Tecmo-Koei Euro’s Twitter, not mine)

    • XiaomuArisu

      O.O
      Who are you and what did you do to Z?!?

  • http://resettears.wordpress.com/ Reset Tears

    Great character designs; I’m a sucker for this sort of stylized spin on traditional Japanese aesthetics though.

  • Zeongundam

    I’m calling it now! there will be an upgraded release of this game. A lot of games like this tend to do it lol. Examples: Monster Hunter Freedom 2- MHF Unite, God Eater- God Eater Burst, and Soul Sacrifice – Delta.

    • MaximDualBlade

      I want it but I don’t want it at the same time. I think they are already doin Toukiden 2, and I prefer they put all the effort on that one. At least 15 new boss Oni would be cool

    • TheExile285

      There’s no guarantee that Temco would do that. Even if they did, if people didn’t buy this because they waited for an update, we may not get said update.

    • XiaomuArisu

      Soul Sacrifice Delta is an Sequel
      Sure it has the story of the first game but the new things they are adding are GIGANTIC. Its like Fire Emblem 3 for SNES

      • Zeongundam

        Is it really? I heard otherwise thanks for the clarification.

    • icecoffemix

      I believe in KT (or not seeing their “legend”, “ultimate” and “gaiden”). Oh well, I hope they put it toward sequel instead of updated rerelease.

  • Firion Hope

    Looks like Nagi will be quite central to the PLOT

    Really though I love all the character designs, just playing the demo is already enough to get me invested and caring about some of the characters, Hatsuho is very endearing

  • MaximDualBlade

    Seriously since playing the demo I want to play this game so much! I obtained all that was obtainable in the demo, it took me almost the 10 hours they said the demo would last.

    The game is so different than Soul Sacrifice that I can love it for those differences. And the end of the demo was such a tease I actually screamed at the screen XD they made a 100% must buy to a 150% buy must buy XD See you all online

  • d19xx

    Fugaku: “It’s fisting time!”

    • Varnes

      Your profile pic is perfect for this comment XD

    • Furu Chi

      ^ This and your profile pic. Epic

  • Furu Chi

    1 more week to go :D

  • ajneez

    TOUKIDEN will be one of the best hunting games! i have played the demo and it´s amazing. I can´t wait for the full version!
    the characters desing is georgous, the story, the music, the battles, the moveset, the ONIS!!!!
    it is MUST HAVE!

  • DarkLight

    This game is gonna be epic!

  • Houten Lee

    Believe the character design is the same illustrator for Ateliere Ayesha.

    • z_merquise

      Yes. It’s Hidari.

      • icecoffemix

        I was skeptic with the acquisition at first, but no more. Love what’s coming out of it so far. >:3

  • Lazulis

    Haha, they left out the best part of Hayatori in his description. Tenko~

  • Zer0faith

    Ah yes I cant wait to play the full game on day 1. Hmm? What’s that?
    Finish my backlog from the Winter Sales?

  • Lilith

    I can’t wait for this. The demo is awesome. This IP has a lot of future, I hope it sells well.

    • TheExile285

      I hope so too. Temco has been pushing it really hard.

  • Kami nii

    Good cast I played the hell out of the demo getting ready for the real deal!! :)

    • Zer0faith

      Same here though I refuse to progress further in the demo due to the item storage cap making me sell some of my rarer items. Also I think theres a money cap (or whatever their currency is) as well. I’m just the collecting type of gamer I guess.Cant wait till the full release.

      • Kami nii

        Yeah Item limit is 30 and money is 3000 it sucks but I quickly got good at the battles thank to the extensive grinding, I’m ready for the second boss haha

  • Julio D. Zulkarnain

    The demo was good. I usually have no interest in hunting game, but the presentation here managed to catch me.

  • れいか

    I really like how it’s a trend on games nowadays to release a demo prior to the release date. Not just simple and small demos but those that actually gives you the first few actual game-play. It gives the players the chance asses how good a game can be. That being said, I’ve always been so hyped for this game for awhile and got even more interested when they actually put up the demo ( Yes, they released a demo in Japan too but there was always a chance they won’t do the same here). I can’t wait purchase the game day 1! :D

  • Arz

    I played the demo. Sadly the was no weapon type that I liked.Is there anymore weapon types in the full version?

    • icecoffemix

      Nope.

      What are you looking for by the way, slower or faster kind of weapon?

      • Arz

        I don’t know exactly….like so far I’m using the lance and I just think something feels off about it.I do know I wish the Chain&Sickle would concentrate more on the chain.And the special move just to be able to throw chain mid-air just seems unnecessary.

        • icecoffemix

          That’s really vague I’m not sure which other game I should recommend you. :P

          Have you mastered all the spear’s move? like holding square to aim and charge, or combining thrust to sweep attack? Those could make the fight more fun.

          Those special moves break boss part regardless of its HP, and I see a lot of towering oni later on so it’s probably going to be one of the better weapon to farm part second only to bow.

          • Arz

            Yeah I’ve learned all Lance move,but still.The only reason I stick with it is that I can pretend I’m doing JoJo’s oraoraora with the charge attack.

          • icecoffemix

            You can do it much more legitly with fist O attack ;)

          • Arz

            That’s more like a dempsey roll though

  • HellMuT

    Tried the demo. I wish you could play as Hatsuho. She’s so cute. I’ll just have to make my character cuter.

  • tarbis

    I want a pet Tenko <3

  • Troublehalf

    Already Preordered from Game, as it came with some extra stuff. So does Amazon.

    I do hate it when different stores give different freebies. I don’t mind if you can just buy the other freebies, but if you’re left without, it’s annoying.
