TECMO KOEI have announced the release date for their upcoming PlayStation Vita title Toukiden: The Age of Demons. The game has already been a massive success in Japan with sales already exceeding 500,000 copies; a massive feat for an original IP on the PlayStation Vita.
Set against a backdrop inspired by various historical periods of Japan, Toukiden 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 time warped 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 customise their characters, weapons and armour and form a group of hunters to take down the destructive Oni.
Those who pre-order the game will be treated with incentives depending on the means you choose to pre-order from. Should you pre-order from the PlayStation store, you will receive the Mitama of Momotaro, a warrior’s soul that will strengthen the player’s skill, along with a piece of armour (cat ears). Should you order from selected stores you will receive two additional pre-order DLC packs, one including the Mitama of Niijima Yae and a piece of armour (fox mask) and one including two extra mission collections.
Toukiden: The Age of Demons will be available on the PlayStation Vita from February 14th.
