Releasing a trailer and these visuals
, Koei Tecmo Europe
has announced that Toukiden Kiwami
, the follow-up to Toukiden: the Age of Demons
, is out now in Europe on March 27th, for PS4 and PS Vita. Set against a backdrop inspired by various historical periods of Japan, Toukiden: Kiwami continues to narrate the tale of humanity's last stand for survival. As it makes its debut appearance on the PS4, the game picks up the story from the beginning, allowing new players to familiarise with its demon-ridden world. Nevertheless, it is actually almost double the size of the original game, offering fans of the series the opportunity to pick up where Age of Demons stops and follow their slayer into a variety of new adventures.
Like its predecessor, 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. In the multiplayer mode, the player is always encouraged to tackle battles with the most powerful Oni as part of a group and, as with the previous title, there is a choice between a number of NPC or, preferably, a cooperative multiplayer mode that allows for a team of up to four Slayers to band up and banish a demon together.
Toukiden Kiwami will arrive in North America on March 31st.
