Toukiden: Kiwami is now available for PS4 and PS Vita across Europe. For those who would like to transfer the data from Toukiden: The Age of Demons (PS Vita) to Toukiden: Kiwami (PS4 and PS Vita), make sure you update the patch for The Age of Demons, then you can carry it over.
KOEI TECMO EUROPE revealed exciting new information and additional features for Toukiden: Kiwami, the demon slaying epic for PS4 and PS Vita.
Kiwami’s new story starts three months after the conclusion of the original Toukiden with a deeper introduction into the intricate hierarchy of the Slayer organisation. Players are introduced to an elite slayer unit, ‘the Hundred Demon Corps.’ and their heroic Captain, Soma. Soma has made a name for himself during the wars of the Awakening and is now leading the Third Company to the Utakata Village to re-enforce their resistance against Oni coming from the north. His weapon of choice is an enormous spiked club and he wields it with such bravery and conviction that it has earned him the unwavering loyalty of his men. With him travels Reki, a young slayer with an uncanny proficiency in the naginata. Reki was send from the Village of Shiranui to join the ‘Hundred Demon Corps’ and has quickly proven herself composed, focused and cool in a fight.
The last of the new Slayer characters that join the roster in Toukiden: Kiwami is the sweet yet mysterious Horo; a girl with little memory of her past who suddenly appeared in Utakata and took up the fight against the Oni. Horo brings with her an exciting new weapon addition to the Toukiden armoury: an oversized rifle. Despite its size, the rifle is a weapon of great strength and accuracy and it provides a great long-ranged alternative to bows as it fires both rounds and grenades.
Apart from the new weapons and character additions, Toukiden: Kiwami also includes an increased number of Mitama (300 in total, up from 200 in the previous title). Mitama are the freed souls of fallen heroes who remain to assist the slayers in their fight. The souls can be equipped by the player and their powers can be upgraded up to 12 levels (two more than in ‘the Age of Demons’). Fully levelling up a Mitama gives access to extra boosts and powers that will help the player survive through the challenges of the treacherous hunts.
Toukiden: Kiwami features both the original Toukiden: The Age of Demons story and a brand new story of roughly the same size, following on from the original. The truth will finally be revealed about the origins of the Slayers and the mysterious Council of Elders. All your favourite characters from the first title return, such as Ōka, Hayatori and the other characters from Utakata Village, while new characters such as Reki, Sōma and Horō, make their first appearance, revealing additional depths to the story.
Toukiden: Kiwami comes to North America March 31 and EU March 27 in both physical and digital formats.
