    I do want to buy Toukiden, loved the demo, but then they announced Extreme, so I guess I’ll hold out until it’s certain if we’ll get that version of the game here on the west.

    something is wrong here : as of March 31st, 2015

    • otakumike

      check the calendar….it’s 2016 already. *mind trip music plays*

      • TheExile285

        Really? Where the hell is my Mighty No. 9 then :V

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      Ishaan can see into the future! Although I don’t think 550,000 copies shipped by then would be so good D:

    • nonscpo

      As of March 31 2015…Oh no that means that they won’t sell half a million until next year. Lol silly Ishaan attempting to predict the future in the present.

      • Satori Satya

        Yeah, they actually expect to ship that many units during the current fiscal year (which ends on March 31, 2015).

        So it wasn’t just Ishaan making a prediction here.

    • Vsin

      Open the presentation (listed in article), Slide 15.

      Due to the placement of the statement “New “TOUKIDEN” IP became a 550,000 units hit” directly below a chart that projects the Fiscal 2014 earnings (aka, Mar 31, ’15) it’s a bit ambiguous as to whether 550k has already been sold, or whether it’s a next-year projection.

  • Kornelious

    Good of Toukiden, it deserves it :)

  • z_merquise

    Well the art above looked pretty nice.

    “Shipped” is still different from copies sold, right? Though Toukiden did sold well in Japan which is why it’s now TK’s new franchise.

    • Jadfish

      yes, shipped is indeed different to copies sold.
      Expect copies sold to be less than shipped copies, if we are talking purely physical versions of the game (obviously).
      It’s a quick little way for companies to inflate their numbers to the press these days. I’m sure that Toukiden did extremely well though.

  • Tanicia Marshall

    I want this game I just bought a Vita but I might wait for extreme to get an announcement of if it is coming to the US or not.

    • Jadfish

      I have it and I love it, but you should wait for Extreme. Really.

      I bought Soul Sacrifice on release last year and played it furiously. Then I bought Delta a couple of weeks ago and was blown back at how much better it was.
      So I think it’s a good idea to wait for the “G”-editions(MH reference) of these Hunting style games, unless you buy the first edition near release.

      I’m 100% sure that Freedom Wars will get a “G”-edition too.
      I’m honestly fine with it, though I can see people feeling ripped off a bit with these yearly upgrades that contain everything from the first edition + a bunch of extra stuff and polished mechanics (Delta has a better resolution and framerate…. that’s nuts)

  • QueenDecim

    Game seemed alright from the demo, but the camera was kinda not so good. All these hunting games need a further Zoomed out camera, especially monster hunter where the camera position is either too high or too low

  • azariosays

    oh good for them :)

  • KuroNathan

    wow, for a hunting game that isn’t monster hunter that’s really good. Does anyone know how this stacks up against others in the genre? Like SS and GE2
