Koei Tecmo have launched the official Japanese website for their hunting RPG, Toukiden 2, the sequel to Toukiden: Kiwami coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. On the site includes a multitude of screenshots as well as details on the game system. Here is a summary of what was revealed.
-The world of Toukiden 2 consists of one open world map.
-After leaving the starting hub in Toukiden 2, “oni” (the power of demons) will cause demons to spawn in the map.
-There are a variety of settings present in the game such as “volcanos boiling with lava” and “fortresses floating in the sky.”
-The emphasis is on exploring the open world and finding new characters and oni to interact with.
-The “Parts Destruction Action” system present in the Toukiden series has been expanded.
-A “Demon’s Hand” can be summoned that pulls the oni to the ground repeatedly.
-When an oni loses it’s arms or legs via “Complete Parts Destruction,” it’s tactics can change considerably, therefore a strategic element is added.
-Players adopt the role of “Slayers” who battle the oni.
-The player character is engulfed by a force during a significant battle known as “Oomagadoki” and taken to “Mahoroba Village,” losing their memory in the process.
-The player is tasked with discovering the truth behind the world with the help of the other characters, battling oni in the process.
-Mahoroba Village will play a key part of a story, where lots of events will unfold.
