Toukiden Hunt

The cinematic opening and more gameplay footage for the crazy hack & slash PSP and Vita title, Toukiden, has been released. Developed by Omega Force and published by famed company Tecmo Koei, Toukiden is a game that will see players take control of a customized Mononofu warrior, as they hunt enormous demons that look to have been ripped from Japanese folklore. The hunting mechanics of Toukiden looks to play similar to those seen in the popular Monster Hunter franchise.

In the newly released opening, players are given a glimpse of many of the creatures that will challenge the player in the hunts, as well as a dramatic fight between an oni-like demon and single Mononofu warrior.

In the gameplay footage, we are shown how these hunts appear to play out, as four Mononofu players group together to fight a giant spider demon. These Mononofu warriors are seen using multiple weapons like a Long Katana, the Tekko Gloves, a long-ranged Bow, and a Sickle and Chain. These weapons all have different attributes and play styles, and will need to be mastered so the player can be an asset to the team. In a similar manner to the Monster Hunter series, these hunted beasts look to have different stages of attacks as their health starts to be depleted. Also, players are seen shattering limbs off the monster after landing brutal blows, but these broken objects don’t look permanent as they quickly start regenerating.

Toukiden has a release date of June 27th for PlayStation Vita and PSP in Japan. A western release has been confirmed, and the title will make its way overseas in the latter part of 2013.
