This isn't just because you the fans requested it (which I know some of you Japanese game fans did), it is following the fact the game became groundbreaking, and found success with over 470,000 units sold.
Toukiden: The Age of Demons is set against a backdrop that is inspired by various periods of Japans amazing history, and from what we know, this game is set on the tale of humanity and their last push against the demons (Oni) have begun to invade Earth through cracks in space and time. They have attacked humans using their various sizes, strengths, and abilities to minimize their opposing enemies. Their opposition is only known as the Slayers, a group of people only known as the Slayers, a group that has a secret of protecting humanity from the demons murderous intent.
Eight years following the time jump and Oni appearing, our hero, a young Slayer appears and embarks on his quest to try to stop the enemy, save humanity, and give them a fighting chance for survival. The young warrior will be fully customization based appearance, clear down to weapons, armor, and even form a group of hunters that will group up in order to take down the Oni once and for all.
The game boasts itself upon graphics, in-depth character creation mode, and the six weapon types available, all that can be forged and upgraded based on a player's play style, while it also hosts a 200 character cast that is based on both fictional and historical Japanese figures, whom will assist players via their souls in order to strengthen a player's team in order for them to defeat the pesky and deadly Oni forces.
Excited yet? I know I am. In order to aid Slayers in their beginning hours of their journey, Tecmo Koei America has also announced a series of in game pre-order bonuses. What are those you might ask? Well let us tell share this wonderful bit of information that they have provided us with (all this seems amazing and we wish you could enjoy each of them at the same time!): GameStop will be offering two extra Mission Collections, along with the "Mitama of Ninjima Yae." Are you an Amazon person? Well, you will be receiving the "Mitama of Momotaro," a warrior's soul that will strengthen a players skill, along with two pieces of armor (Cat Ears, and of course a Fox Mask).
