Upgraded Toukiden due out this year in Japan.

Toukiden: The Age of Demons

Following recent trademarks, Tecmo Koei confirmed Toukiden Kiwami for PS Vita and PSP in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine.

The game is an upgraded version of the original Toukiden, and features a new demon called “Imihayahi” that appears three months after the events of the previous game.

The game will feature added equipment, a new NPC character, firearm weapons, more armor and spirits, double the amount of demons, more special moves, and increased customization. The story is about the same as the original game.

Toukiden Kiwami is due out in 2014, and is currently 50 percent complete. The PS Vita version will cost 5,800 yen at retail and 5,143 yen via download, and the PSP version 4,800 yen and 4,286 yen.

Thanks, Sokuho@Hokanko.

    And all of this is legit, by the way. Confirmed by a very reliable leaker in 2ch. Can’t wait to see scans/pictures, since I LOVED the first game.

      I have no reason to distrust ze Alternator.

    >firearm weapons
    >double the amount of demons

    Interesting. I’m guessing 8-10 new boss Oni (unless they don’t add any new smaller oni).

    Was kind of hoping it’d be Vita exclusive. Oh well.

    • OverlordZetta

      At least it’s staying exclusive to handhelds.

    >bought Toukiden JP version (digital)
    >bought Toukiden English version 6 months after (physical)
    >will buy Toukiden Kyoku/Extreme JP version
    >will buy Toukiden Extreme English version probably the same months of wait after

    Can’t believe I’ll be doing this… but my hunger for hunting genre games is insatiable ;A;
    If I can snag a physical copy of the JP version, then I’d probably won’t buy the English version since the first one can play with each other regardless of region and versions.

    • ekibyougami

      wait. I just read from other sources that the new weapon is a Naginata….. with a missile attack. So, it’s like a Naginata with a gun mode? NaGUNata? :v
      If so, I’m sold! O_O

      Or maybe there’s also a new “firearm” weapon along with the Naginata.

      • TheExile285

        Oh wow, that sounds awesome. Hopefully, this gets localized.

        • ekibyougami

          Rough translation from another source:
          >Released in 2014 (in Japan)
          >PSVita version: 5800 yen (tax inc.)
          >PSP version: 4800 yen (tax inc.)
          >New equipment, Oni and Mitama
          >A new NPC character
          >New weapon = Naginata
          >story is much the same as the previous work (most probably about the same length, so making it 5 chapters long for the new story)
          >There is also a missile in the new weapon (either implying the Naginata has a missile attack or there’s another new weapon)
          >number of new ONIs doubled
          >Special Moves are also added

          • TheExile285

            Special moves? Interesting

  • Six

    Good thing I didn’t buy the original. I’ll be sure to pick this up if localized.

  • G.

    Interesting. I got a code for the first game but gave it to a member of my staff to review. Maybe I’ll give this one a try in the event of a localization a la Ragnarok Odyssey ACE.

  • orzorzorz

    “double the amount of demons” might actually pick it up then

  • JulieDHarris

    If I can snag a physical copy of the JP version, then I’d probably won’t buy the English version since the first one can play with each other regardless of region and versions.

  • Mnoz

    “NPC character”
    Non-playable character character ? :p

    • David Curry

      I’ll buy this game after a trip to the ATM machine ;D

      • RickyMack

        don’t forget your personal identification number number

  • Unretributed

    Almost bought this game too, I’ll get DonganRonpa instead.

    • MrFinalgamer

      Please do! That game is amazing, definitely give it a go.

    • DXVII

      I almost bought it too. Time to wait it out like ROA (Ragnaok Odyssey Ace)

  • Elvick

    Will buy this too. Original is dope.

  • OverlordZetta

    Sounds interesting enough. First one was okay, might pick this up depending on how much is added and if old saves carry over.

  • Auragar

    Yah… saw this coming. -sigh- Oh well I am a sucker I will be buying it when if is released in the West.

  • Invisbin

    Good thing i didnt get this yet…

  • HighBrowDrifter

    Now I am really glad that I didn’t rush into purchasing the original one….phew!

  • PrinceHeir

    Lol back then i was also about to buy this, then a recent trademark surface and Gematsu reported it.

    Thank you Gematsu for saving me some bucks ^^

    I wonder what about the DLC? Like the Soul Sacrifice costumes and such?

    Are they compatible or already included in the game?

  • tubers

    Nice.. I’ll wait for this version instead or at least I can wait another year for confirmation.

  • artemisthemp

    Wouldn’t it make more sense to only devolpe for PS Vita since, it sell very well in Japan

  • kirby755

    I remembered when they first announced this one. It was when I had just the original just got it from GameStop, pre-ordered too, and I Lost all sensibility that day, when they announced it on that same week it came too America. I know my grammar and sentences are terrible but I can’t help it, Kirby is raging again lol.

  • Santashi

    I’ve put 40 hours into the original release so far and really enjoyed it. I’m not sure how much I want to pay to replay with the extra content though.

  • SOLOmio

    Ragnarok, Valhalla knight and now Toukiden!!! Do developers in japan think that gamers are mindless money cows or what!? If the game is not perfect do sell it or do a damn dlc like “last of us”!

    I am just glad that i beat this 100% or i would be raging like when Ace was announced!

    • Karl Josef

      you forgot Soul Sacrifice

  • VoidOfOne

    Considering this is from Temco Koei, an addition to this game seemed more than likely, considering their other franchises. Also, if this is truly an upgraded version, and not a sequel, it is also likely that you would be able to transfer your character and progress to the new game, as that is what typically happens with Dynasty Warriors games of the same number.
