New Toukiden demo video shows off fighting styles

Hot on the heels of Soul Sacrifice, Toukiden is coming and will offer more big-beast battling action soon for Japanese gamers. This new video from Tecmo shows off the four fighting styles, which I'm guessing are melee, sword, bow and chain-weapons, with a smattering of magic. (PS Vita, Toukiden)

Indeed! And holy crap does Monster Hunter have some competition in this and Soul Sacrafice?! :D

I've liked Monster Hunter for a long time, but it has been around for ages now and I'm glad to see new spins on successful formulas. We get the benefit of the 'old faithful' MH games, but with a fresher aesthetic and a bit more momentum.

A win for gamers everywhere!

Aside: I can't believe they can get this out of the PSP hardware! :O With the extra horsepower of Vita, the future is looking mighty tastey :)

Soul Sacrifice is one hell of a game. Tried the demo and is fan-freaking-tastic.

Anyways, i thought this was the vita version? No doubt it looks amazing though.

@r21^ You're probably right, maybe that's why I was pretty amazed when I watched the vid lol

And yes, I've been playing the demo of SS too and it's quite incredible, I already want a sequel and I haven't even played the full game yet! :D

I agree, good to see more games like this.

And the fact that it's on PSP/Vita is a plus for both systems and a really good choice by KoeiTecmo as it ensures it'll sell well on the already installed PSP fanbase as well as target the newer PS Vita install base.

It's also important to note that Monster Hunter has no presence on the Vita right now. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is on the 3DS and so will be Monster Hunter 4, so the Vita exclusives aren't exactly competing with MH.

Any news about this coming West? I played the demo from the Japanese store and it's basically a carbon copy of MH (and that's not a bad thing). The combat, the extra things in the mission (like scavenging for stuff), the difficulty, the big monsters, breaking pieces off monsters, monsters "raging", etc are all just like Monster Hunter. Again, that's NOT a bad thing. I love MH. I've played it since MHF2 on PSP.

Do you cut off limbs in Monster Hunter ? I heard this game also has some magic in it.
Cirehpsa  +   861d ago
You can cut off tails and break claws and stuff in Monster hunter.

Honestly just by looking at screenshots of Toukiden I thought it'd play pretty damn close to monster hunter.

It will come. Temco Koei even did a totally stealth release of Atelier Totori + and we have gotten every Ninja Gaiden Vita port, so this is a shoe in.

I doubt if a PSP version will surface though, I imagine only the Vita one will make it to EU NA.

Looks sweet. I'll have to get me a vita when the ps4 comes out.

I'm loving Vita!

I might have to buy a vita for this.

It's like Dynasty Warriors mixed with Monster Hunter and maybe God Eater.
TongkatAli  +   861d ago
People are going to call this a Monster Hunter clone, which is false. That Soul Sacrifice demo is so fing epic, so violent, brutal and the haunting OST, makes me feel like I'm playing a horror game.
Sandmano  +   861d ago
I don't usually play games like soul sacrifice but it is a phenomenal game that's so much fun too play! I haven't even tried the MP!
TongkatAli  +   861d ago
Lvl up before you go online, very important. The bosses are really fing brutal.
Sandmano  +   861d ago
Haha thanks for the advice m8 ;)
Sanquine90  +   861d ago
Yes, 3 sacrifices needed to get the harpy down:S just one survivor
AhmadCentral  +   861d ago
I really hope they release this here. And i hope it sells well in Japan as well.

This is the exact type of game KoeiTecmo need.
