EVIL IS UNLEASHED AS TECMO KOEI AMERICA LAUNCHES TOUKIDEN: THE AGE OF DEMONS FOR PLAYSTATION VITA
Join the Hunt for Adventure and Slay Deadly Demons in the Latest Hunting Action Title
from the Creators of the Dynasty Warriors Series
BURLINGAME, Calif. – FEBRUARY 11, 2014 – TECMO KOEI America is pleased to announce today that TOUKIDEN: THE AGE OF DEMONS has shipped for the PlayStation®Vita handheld system and is available at retailers across North America and for digital download via the PlayStation®Store. Developed by Omega Force, creators of the famed Dynasty Warrior series, TOUKIDEN: THE AGE OF DEMONS casts players in the role of a Slayer, a skilled warrior charged with hunting monstrous Oni (demons) that threaten all of humanity.
“With a rich story exploring many eras of Japanese history, memorable characters, stunning visuals, complex combat system, and four-player support, TOUKIDEN: THE AGE OF DEMONS represents the most ambitious title to date from the team at Omega Force,” said Amos Ip, SVP and General Manager of TECMO KOEI America. “Following its massive success in Japan, we are very excited to be able to bring this title to gamers and fans in North America.”
TOUKIDEN: THE AGE OF DEMONS is set in a vibrant, fantasy infused representation of Japanese history spanning from the Asuka period to the final days of the Tokugawa shogunate. New Slayers will begin their journey on the frontlines of battle in the Utakata Village, build a party from a cast of memorable characters, and join the hunt for adventure with up to four friends via ad-hoc or online multiplayer.
But be warned: Defeating the Oni threat will be no small task. Utilizing the unique Targeted Destruction combat system, Slayers must master a variety of weapons and attacks, working closely with allies to systematically slash, thrust, and crush the towering Oni, piece-by-piece. From the ashes of fallen Oni, arises Mitama, the souls of legendary heroes, which Slayers can use to imbue their weapons with special abilities and attributes. With over 200 Mitama in the game, the ability to customize and combine lets Slayers bring their weapons of choice to life with the power and influence unique heroes of legend.
TOUKIDEN: THE AGE OF DEMONS is developed by Omega Force and published by Tecmo Koei. The ESRB rated “T” (Teen) game is available on the PlayStation®Vita handheld system for an MSRP of $39.99 (USD).
