Koei Tecmo has just announced that Toukiden: Kiwami will be coming to the PC on June 26th. In order to celebrate this announcement, Koei has released a new trailer dedicated to the Steam version that can be viewed below (it’s a cinematic trailer, so don’t expect any gameplay footage).
Toukiden: Kiwami is an action RPG that features a story mode estimated to take over 100 hours to complete, as well as over 50 Oni types, an extensive character creation mode, 300 fallen heroes (Mitama) whose rescued souls help strengthen the player’s team, more than 1500 weapon variations, and an extensive, cross-play-enabled multiplayer mode.
Players can battle Oni with a squad of up to four Slayers comprised of various NPCs or other players via online cooperative play.
Toukiden’s original storyline starts 8 years after the Awakening and follows a newly trained Slayer from the village of Utakata (enter: the player!). The player’s role is to complete various missions, strengthen his relationships with the other warriors in the village and eventually start battling the largest of the Oni to banish them back to their dimension (a mysterious demi-plane that stands between space and time) and free the souls of the heroes they’ve trapped. In turn, when these souls are free, they stay with the player and provide him with a variety of equipable abilities for his weapons.
Toukiden: Kiwami boasts an extensive character creation mode, a multitude of new and returning weapon types, each of which can be forged and upgraded to the player’s preferences, while it also features 300 characters based on both fictional and historical Japanese figures, whose souls help players strengthen their team and defeat their enemies.
