While Asia is waiting for Monster Hunter 4, other developers are jumping into the hunting genre. Sony Computer Entertainment Japan released Soul Sacrifice, Sega has Phantasy Star Online 2 (which predates Monster Hunter as a series), and there’s Toukiden from Tecmo Koei.
Toukiden has Japanese flair to it and artwork from the character designer on Atelier Ayesha. Players can use four different oni slaying weapons: a sword, bow, gauntlets, and kusarigama. Toukiden will come out for PSP and Vita on June 27.
