We previously reported that Toukiden Extreme, the updated version of Tecmo Koei’s Vita and PSP hunting game, will have three new weapons—the Naginata, Kanabo, and the gun. This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine shares more details, including some on new characters. (Thanks, Zaregoto.)
The first new character is named Soma, a Kanabo-wielder who is the captain of the third “Hundred Oni Corps”. Next up is Holo the gun-wielder, a mysterious young girl who seems to have lost her memories.
Unlike the spear, the Naginata will excel in pulling off combo attacks. It will also have a feature that allows wielders to ward off enemy hits.
The Kanabo, a spiked or knobbed club, won’t have much speed, but it’ll more than make up for it with its superior range and power. Hitting enemies with the tip of the Kanabo increases the damage output, and continuously doing so will make it go even higher for a certain amount of time. The Kanabo will also have a feature that lets you repel enemy attacks.
Finally, the gun has a neat feature that lets you get into stance to see the target’s weak spots, and shooting at them will increase its power. Gun-wielders will have access to several types of bullets, and will also be able to throw bombs. Shooting said bombs can have different effects depending on the type of bullet you use.
Finally, the Destroyer feature in Toukiden, that unleashed a powerful attack to defeat smaller enemies in a single blow or sever the body parts of larger ones, will be getting an upgrade, called “Extreme Destroyer,” which will let you destroy multiple body parts of the oni.
Toukiden Extreme will be released in Japan sometime in 2014 for PlayStation Vita and PSP.
