TECMO KOEI EUROPE ANNOUNCES RELEASE DATE AND PRE-ORDER BONUSES FOR TOUKIDEN: THE AGE OF DEMONS

Hertfordshire, 27/12/2013- Tecmo Koei Europe is pleased to announce today that the upcoming title ‘Toukiden: The Age of Demons’, developed for the PlayStation®Vita handheld system will be released across Europe on the 14 th February 2014.

Following a ground breaking success in Japan, with sales exceeding 500,000 units (a feat all the more impressive for an original IP) Toukiden: T he Age of Demons is bringing the fight for survival to the west.

Set against a backdrop inspired by various historical periods of Japan, Toukiden tells the tale of humanity’s last stand for survival. When monstrous demons (Oni) of varying strength and size invaded the world through cracks in space and time and started attacking humans, the only opposition came from the Slayers; a caste that has always secretly protected mankind from their murderous intent.

Eight years after time warped and Oni appeared, a brave young Slayer embarks on a journey to thin the numbers of the enemy and help humanity survive. Players take the role of this young warrior and can fully customise their characters, weapons and armour and form a group of hunters to take down the destructive Oni.

This visually stunning game boasts an extensive character creation mode, and six different weapon types, each of which can be forged and upgraded to the player’s preferences, while it also features 200 characters based on both fictional and historical Japanese figures, whose souls help players strengthen their team and defeat their enemies.

To aid Slayers in the beginning of their journey Tecmo Koei Europe announced a series of in game pre-order bonuses. Specifically, those who pre-order Toukiden through the Playstation Network® will receive the Mitama of Momotaro, a warrior’s soul that will strengthen the player’s skill, along with a piece of armour (cat ears). Furthermore, there will be two additional pre-order DLC packs, one including the Mitama of Niijima Yae and a piece of armour (fox mask) and one including two extra mission collections. These will be available through Game, Amazon and independent retailers through Centresoft.
