Toukiden Extreme’s New Weapons Adds Different Ways To Take On The Oni

By Sato . May 7, 2014 . 12:30am


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.

      • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

        We don’t need more waifus when we already have Nagi~.

  • Ryujin

    Sounds like the new weapon types will be different enough from the ones we already had in the game. Definitely looking forward to seeing the naginata in action now.

    “a mysterious young girl who seems to have lost her memories.”

    Heh ! Original. =p

    • It says “seems,” so maybe she’s faking it to try becoming the protagonist.

      • Virevolte

        Watch your back Oka ! It’s time for Muuuuuuurdeeeeer (yaaayyyyy!)

  • Virevolte

    Do we know if there’s new types of Mitama?

    • Oh God it’s hard trying to find the ones in the version that is out now. T.T I’ve been stuck at 98 mitama for some time now.

  • Hexodious

    Hmmm.. I might buy the current version for the Vita just to see what the deal is all about.

  • Dexward

    Extreme Destroyer would definitely be useful for me for getting the Eye of Truth Masks from the Shredders, so I can finally get that entry done.

  • Kornelious

    This is sounding more and more awesome…..Let’s hope TK makes the right choice and localizes it :)

  • DarkLight

    Holo?She lost her memories?Maybe she’s some kind of giant oni lol(making ref to spice and wolf if you don’t catch on)
    Now if only this game had some kind of dating sim element,I mean just look at those waifus.

  • Alex Hayes

    I’d prefer some new oni, less obtuse logs, better ally AI (As in, actually helps you cleanse or do it themselves so it doesn’t break up the action) than some new weapons. Hopefully get some more info on any of that sometime soon.
