Swordboys will soon be available in English, just like shipgirls. On February 23, 2021, Johren will offer the Touken Ranbu Online English version of the game. The browser-based game will be free-to-play. People can pre-register immediately.
In Touken Ranbu Online, players are Chronos Ministry Saniwas sent from 2205 to protect the past. How? By recruiting weapons that are also attractive men. For example, the Kashu Kiyomitsu starter sword is an Uchigatana. Your goal is to collect and train characters, which are also weapons like Naginatas, Tantos, Tsurugis, and Wakizashis, gather resources, and fight in main battles or ones against other players.
Johren shared a few initial English screenshots.
