Toukiden Extreme brings three new weapons to the hunt, but Koei Tecmo haven’t forgotten about the original weapons from the first game. In their latest gameplay video, they show off some of the changes the old weapons will get in the upcoming game.

 

 

The first weapon they show is the Long Sword, which will get its mystical “Katanakizu” energy ability enhanced with more power. However, this will cost more stamina, and can be performed by holding down the circle button.

 

Long Swords will also get a new action that allows you to stand still to draw the blade, then hit with a vertical slash, while staying in place. Meanwhile, the Twin Blades will get more varieties to their aerial attacks, along with newer ways to approach and jump onto large enemies.

 

Spears can now be used to parry or stop enemy attacks after charging up one full stage. The Gauntlets also gets an extra boost in Toukiden Extreme, as they now let your character bust out in a reddish state, followed by an explosive extra damage from the fists.

 

The chain-and-sickle Kusarigama weapon also gets an aerial upgrade like the Twin Blades, except for this one, the development team has made adjustments so players won’t be as vulnerable in mid-air.

 

Finally, an interesting new ability for the Bow will have your stamina drain down with decreased mobility, in exchange for extra power. You can also check out some more of the game’s new weapons, starting at the 3:38 mark of the video.

 

Toukiden Extreme is slated for release in Japan on August 28, 2014 for PlayStation Vita and PSP.

    Loved the Naginata. Fast and cool movements.
    And the gun looked so weird. The projectiles seems harmless. And i wonder if the colors you put on the cartridge while sitting down, have an order that will change effects, or something. Like the Hunting Horn on MonHun.
    Can’t wait to try it out. And this time i’ll have a friend to play with, no more single play like i did on the first game. T.T

      I’m pretty sure that the slow-moving bullets are like mines. They seem to explode after a certain period, or maybe on contact.

  • Tincho Kudos

    So, a 2015 english release date sounds posible no?

  • Neight Jirachi Simmons

    The weapon changes and additions look incredible.

  • Will John

    So the Kanabo is bascially Hurk and the Naginata is Lynn ok

  • MaidKillua

    Dual blade changes didn’t really look significant at all. Kinda disappointed. Might have to change to the longsword for this

  • Dystopiq

    PSP? Wut?

  • Armageddon

    You know from what I’ve seen so far calling this toukiden 2 would not be far fetch.(I know it’s an updated version but still they should have just made a new game or a very big patch).
