Tecmo Koei Europe have announced that Toukiden: The Age of Demons, developed for PlayStation Vita, will be released across Europe on the 14th February 2014.
Set against a backdrop inspired by various historical periods of Japan, Toukiden tells the tale of humanity’s last stand for survival. When monstrous demons (Oni) of varying strength and size invaded the world through cracks in space and time and started attacking humans, the only opposition came from the Slayers; a caste that has always secretly protected mankind from their murderous intent.
Eight years after time warped and Oni appeared, a brave young Slayer embarks on a journey to thin the numbers of the enemy and help humanity survive. Players take the role of this young warrior and can fully customise their characters, weapons and armour and form a group of hunters to take down the destructive Oni.
The game boasts an extensive character creation mode, and six different weapon types, each of which can be forged and upgraded to the player’s preferences. It also features 200 characters based on both fictional and historical Japanese figures, whose souls help players strengthen their team and defeat their enemies.
To aid Slayers in the beginning of their journey Tecmo Koei Europe also announced a series of in game pre-order bonuses. Players who pre-order Toukiden through the Playstation Network will receive the Mitama of Momotaro, a warrior’s soul that will strengthen the player’s skill, along with a piece of armour (cat ears). Two additional pre-order DLC packs are also available, one including the Mitama of Niijima Yae and a piece of armour (fox mask) and one including two extra mission collections. These will be available through Game, Amazon and independent retailers through Centresoft.
