    Koei Tecmo is really bringing it. I’m very excited for Toukiden 2, since the original is one of my favourite hunting games.

    I’m kind of surprised how quickly Nights of Azure 2 was confirmed for the West. This suggests that the first game was successful, which is great.

    • I tried Toukiden 2’s demo on the Japanese PSN (on PS3) and still haven’t gotten hooked. I guess it’ll take longer but I clicked with God Eater 2 pretty quickly.

      I’m curious… What Koei Tecmo games don’t get localised aside from DOAX3 (which still had three prior games localised including the PSP one).

      I ask as I can remember a pretty high rate of localisations from them.

    No Atelier Shallie+ and Night of Azure 2 will most likely be PS4 exclusive again. Not impressed tbh.
