The Jollux in Toukiden seem like a bunch of pretty jolly oni. You can imagine them chortling to themselves after setting traps against Slayers, using their high levels of intelligence. Once you’re trapped, beware, as they’ll then leap straight on top of you, crushing every bone into dust as they laugh joyously.
Yeah… Don’t get caught in those traps. In other news, Toukiden’s website has been updated with a whole host of the demons you’ll have to face down and kill on your travels. You can check them out below. The Jollux is just the tip of the iceberg.
A large Oni with the body of a spider and the head of a lion, they are highly feared by the villagers. With their sickle-shaped claws, they can cut through just about anything, leading to their bloodstained appearance.
A large Oni that is enshrouded in hellfire, they possess an overwhelming presence and untold strength. It is thought that they are a higher level Oni, but the exact details are unclear.
A large Oni resembling a four-legged beast, they earned their name due to the way they slice through the wind as they effortlessly move about. They fly nimbly across the battlefield and attack with a sense of purpose, which has led to the deaths of many Slayers.
A large Oni, they use their four wings to easily soar through the skies and can incinerate their foes with their scorching hot breath. They have appeared in various Ages, and there are records of them suddenly appearing and laying waste to entire villages.
A large Oni with massive fin-like arms that they use to burrow through the ground and perform powerful attacks. They also utilize a sliding charge attack while on their stomachs, during which they use their fins to control their bodies.
A large Oni that resembles a ferocious warrior, their four arms possess the power of fire and ice. Since they do not have any type of legs, they move slowly, but their long range and wide-reaching attacks are not to be underestimated.
A small Oni with sharp claws and a prominent belly, they can be found throughout the Otherworld. They always move in packs, and will attack any human they see.
A small Oni that resembles a spider, they often appear in large numbers. They are capable of spitting forth a powerful poison, so newer Slayers should keep a close eye on them at all times.
A giant Oni that for some reason displays no interest in humans, they simply lurch about the Otherworld at their leisure. On occasion, they have been seen spewing forth an unknown substance, leading to speculation that their purpose is to promote the conversion of the human world into the Otherworld.
A small Oni that is engulfed in flames and floats in the air. They do not move about much, simply investigating their immediate surroundings, so it is believed that they are some sort of scouts. They are capable of spewing forth powerful flames, making it deadly to get too close to them without taking proper precautions.
A small Oni that is capable of flight by flapping its large ears, they attack with balls of lightning when at a distance, and use their whip-like tails when up close. Slayers need to approach carefully when they see these enemies moving in groups.
An Oni that burrows through the earth, they utilize sound and vibrations to know when their prey approaches and rise up suddenly from the ground to strike. Normally, they devour the souls of organisms within the ground, but recently, they have aggressively pursued prey above ground in Ages where the conversion to the Otherworld has progressed.
Rockshell (Because every game deserves an armored turtle)
An Oni that resembles a turtle, they are at home near water. The shell on their backs is as hard as stone, and they are capable of multiple varying attacks. The bottom part of their shell is relatively soft, making them vulnerable when they are flipped over on their backs.
An Oni with the head of a monkey, the body of a tiger, and a snake for a tail, they are one of the stronger smaller sized Oni. In addition to their speed, they utilize their sharp fangs and claws for powerful attacks. They are a definite threat to novice Slayers.
An Oni with massive sharp claws that are covered in a red shell, they slide across the ground and can breathe fire. Highly aggressive, they attack humans on sight. They are among the stronger smaller sized Oni, and are commonly referred to as “Recruit Hunters” due to the sheer number of Slayers that have died in battle with them.
Toukiden: Age of Demons will be published for the PlayStation Vita February 11th (today) in North America and February 14th in Europe.
