Koei Tecmo shared the latest details on Toukiden 2, their upcoming open-world action title, in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. [Thanks, Hachima.]

 

One of the biggest changes for the hunting game sequel is that it’ll take place in an open-world setting. The areas include forests, caves, volcanoes, and all kinds of different fields. When fighting demons, the battles transition seamlessly.

 

There is a regular flow of time in the world, meaning that there will be night and day.
