Toukiden: The Age of Demons Hits PS Vita Next Month

Chin Soon Sun's Avatar + Posted by Chin Soon Sun on Jan 14, 2014 // Community Manager, Tecmo Koei Europe

Hello, hello! It’s been a while. Today, I would like to talk about our upcoming title Toukiden: The Age of Demons for PS Vita. Having sold half a million copies in Japan, it’s coming to North America on February 11th, 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 the demons’ murderous intent.

The player character (you!)

Eight years after the Oni first appeared, a brave young Slayer embarks on a journey to thin the numbers of the enemy and help humanity survive. You take on the role of this young warrior and can fully customize their appearance, weapons and armor, and form a group of hunters to take down the destructive Oni.

Slayers

The Slayers organization has secretly dealt with the Oni threat for more than a thousand years. Since large numbers of Oni appeared eight years ago during an event known as the Awakening, they have served as the guardians of mankind and taken center stage in the land’s history. The warriors that serve within the organization are also referred to as Slayers. With the unique ability to slay the Oni and purify their carcasses from the miasma infecting the land, they refer to themselves as the “demons who slay demons.”

Oni

The strange, demon-like creatures came from another world to devour the souls of living beings and change them into their own life force. The larger Oni also possess the ability to regenerate any limbs that they may have lost. For more than 1,000 years, the Slayers have fought against them from the shadows, but when vast hordes of them appeared eight years ago during the Awakening, the order of the world was permanently disrupted.

Toukiden on PS Vita

Possessing a potent life force, the Oni have the remarkable ability to regenerate themselves. No matter how much damage their bodies may take, they will look for an opportunity to recover as long as they have sufficient life force remaining. You have to work together with the other Slayers to destroy their body parts and then use the Ritual of Purification to prevent the Oni from regenerating.

Toukiden: The Age of Demons for the PS Vita will be available in North America on February 11th, 2014. For more information about the game, please visit the official site.

+ Onvertic on January 14th, 2014 at 7:52 am said:

Oh didn’t know it had dual voice acting. Cool. Will it have anything extra compared to the Japanese version(dlc, etc)? And bring Nobunaga no Yabou: Tendou with Power-Up Kit and San Goku Shi 12 with Power-Up Kit over here!

Any idea if we’re getting the demo Japan got? I’m super hype for this game, and can’t wait to play it as soon as I possibly can!

physical or digital only ? pre-order bonuses? limted edition?

+ divineLite on January 14th, 2014 at 8:12 am said:

Koei Tecmo I lovee youuuuuuuuu

This is as far as we could get a Monster Hunter esque.
Soul Sacrifice is great, Ragnarok Odyssey is good, but as far as similarity in gameplay, Toukiden is Monster Hunter itself

day one for sure

+ Artemisthemp on January 14th, 2014 at 8:35 am said:

+ BleuReign on January 14th, 2014 at 8:41 am said:

Will it be available on PSN as day 1 digital?
I’ve been waiting half a year for it (delivery takes forever) and it seems like a game I’ll play for 100+hours, So I’ll go with digital as long as it’s available on day 1

I get kind of an Onimusha vibe from this. Could be an awesome game, and you Chin have an awesome name.

This is the game that got me to buy a Vita. I bought it last October with plans of importing Toukiden. You wouldn’t believe my excitement when I heard it was announced for localization! I’m so excited to go hunting with friends I’ve been preparing for this game. Thanks a ton, TK! Good to be a part of the TK Family, as always.

Now just come out with an american vitatv and I’ll be unbelievably happy.


33

+ MushThePainter on January 14th, 2014 at 10:04 am said:

This looks pretty cool. Will definitely be picking this up at some point. I still need to play Ys and I’ll be picking up a couple of the 14 for 14 vita games. Its nice to know I’ll have something to play once I’m done with those games.


34

+ death_nation100 on January 14th, 2014 at 10:20 am said:

This game look a lot like Soul Sacrifice and Dragon Dogma . I need to get a ps vita i bought a game for it this month so i’ll be getting one on march.


35

+ DrApollo on January 14th, 2014 at 10:21 am said:

having never played a Monster Hunter game…how does multiplayer work in Toukiden?


36

+ Tyrannikos on January 14th, 2014 at 10:22 am said:

@death_nation100 Just curious, but…where do you get Dragon’s Dogma out of Toukiden? That’s a pretty big comparison there.


37

+ RagingMexicano87 on January 14th, 2014 at 10:29 am said:

Wow… Didn’t realize this is coming out the SAME day as Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc… Oh well I guess I’ll just have to get them both. Game looks phenomenal!! Im excited for both :D


38

+ Stranger_Eddie on January 14th, 2014 at 10:42 am said:

AWESOME
Japanese DLC version have extras in DLC… Is it comes to US too?


39

+ MrVargas on January 14th, 2014 at 10:45 am said:

Go Vita Go! Despite not selling gangbusters this device is quickly racking up some of my favorite gaming experiences and Toukiden looks like it could be another great one!

+ ninth_prey on January 14th, 2014 at 10:58 am said:

Like everone else, I’d like to know if there will be a demo. Any info would be great. Thanks.


41

+ APA_ZAROZO on January 14th, 2014 at 11:46 am said:

Just like everyone here as stated, we’d like a demo, to try before buying. That would also help on the awareness of the game to the public. I hope the demo doens’t come after release… :/


42

+ HeadacheHunter-X on January 14th, 2014 at 12:13 pm said:

MonsterHunter surely beats~
Still it takes too long to see the US version, too long man.


43

+ TheOathsworn on January 14th, 2014 at 12:31 pm said:

I’ll certainly be keeping an eye out for this. A demo would be nice, it would definately help me out on deciding if I buy it day one or not, especially if the game itself feels great when playing it.

In the mean time I’ll stick to playing God Eater 2!

+ weirm1 on January 14th, 2014 at 12:35 pm said:

Cool!


45

+ djsaiyan on January 14th, 2014 at 12:39 pm said:

To the people mentioning dual audio:

There isn’t any. Japanese audio with English subtitles only. It makes sense since the game takes place in Japan. =P

Sad that that appears to be a dealbreaker for some people, as the game looks amazing!


46

+ LTSwordmastre360 on January 14th, 2014 at 12:48 pm said:

Hmm….I didn’t realise this was Vita-only….I’d like to be playing it, but I’m going to have to wait for either a PS3 version or the Vita TV thing before I can get this.

Also, PLEASE localise the new Nobunaga’s Ambition & ROTK strategy games – I’m STILL playing my old PS2 ones since there has not yet been an English update.


47

+ Joevahni99 on January 14th, 2014 at 1:04 pm said:

Cool ! This game look like better than Soul Sacrifice !! But I’m still waiting GTA for the PS Vita.


48

+ Vextalon on January 14th, 2014 at 1:22 pm said:

It looks like a Dynasty Warriors/Monster Hunter game. Can’t wait to play it.

Any chance of this game being compatible with the Vita TV out here in the states?


49

+ Maverick_fox1 on January 14th, 2014 at 2:02 pm said:

I’ve been waiting for this since it was announced on the cross promo with Soul Sacrifice, btw any chances of us getting the cross franchise dlc for both games? also, will ever Marie Rose come to DoA5 on vita? keep the great guys :D
