BURLINGAME, Calif./Hertfordshire, November 27, 2013 – Tecmo Koei America & Europe are pleased to announce today that the upcoming title Toukiden: The Age of Demons, will be released on February 11th, 2014 and on February 14th, 2014 for the PlayStation®Vita handheld system in North America and Europe respectively. Following the groundbreaking success in Japan, with sales exceeding 470,000 units, Toukiden: The Age of Demons is bringing the fight for survival to the west.
Set against a backdrop inspired by various historical periods of Japan, Toukiden: The Age of Demons 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 the time warp 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 customize their characters, weapons and armor and form a group of hunters to take down the destructive Oni.
This visually stunning 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, while 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 America announced a series of in game pre-order bonuses. Specifically, those who pre-order Toukiden: The Age of Demons through GameStop will receive two extra Mission Collections, along with the “Mitama of Niijima Yae.” Those who pre-order at Amazon will receive the “Mitama of Momotaro,” a warrior’s soul that will strengthen the player’s skill, along with 2 pieces of armor (Cat Ears and a Fox Mask).
Tecmo Koei America will share more details leading up to the release of Toukiden: The Age of Demons in North America on February 11, 2014.
While for Europe, to aid Slayers in the beginning of their journey Tecmo Koei Europe announced a series of in game pre-order bonuses.
