Fans of Toukiden or Toukiden Kiwami will be treated to a new game over in Japan on June 30th, which western fans will have to wait sometime later for a date of release. Koei Tecmo’s Toukiden 2 For PS Vita, PS3 and PS4, also received two new videos showing off in-game battles and features.
During a livestream on Nico Nico, Koei Tecmo hosted a gameplay stream of Toukiden 2 For PS Vita, PS3 and PS4. The video, like other Nico Nico videos, comes in with some bad quality but nonetheless reveals some pretty interesting stuff about the game.
Catching wind from DualShockers, the livestream shows additional things like a look at Mitama leveling up in real-time, and other things like communication stamps which can be used during online or multiplayer mode.
Furthermore, those looking to get their hands on the game early, Koei Tecmo will have a playable demo for folks to participate in, which will start on April 11th. This demo is said to let players use their save progress during their run from Toukiden or Toukiden Kiwami, and will even result in “something good” for those using that data. However, there won’t be any item/equipment carry overs into the game.
Looking over to the mechanics of the second installment, it seems to have really fast combat that will be accompanied by a character editor that will let you change your name, gender, hair, face, body, voice and weapons. Essentially, this will give you control over how your character will interact with monsters and battles and so on.
If you want, you can check out the two videos that YouTuber Sasamune game posted up, which runs with some pretty bad quality, but reveals a nice portion of gameplay.
