Originally scheduled for Q4 2013 in North America, Tecmo Koei's action game Toukiden is now scheduled to hit PS Vita in NA on February 11, 2014, followed by a February 14 release in Europe.
Developed by the Dynasty Warriors folks at Omega Force, Toukiden has players taking on the role of Slayers to fight against all kinds of vicious Oni in various historical Japanese settings. Players will be able to customize the look of their Slayer, from weapons to armor, and take on the Oni in groups of hunters.
Prior to the June 27 Japanese launch, we posted some footage showing off animation by Studio 4ºC (Mind Game, Tekkonkinkreet).
Pre-ordering Toukiden at GameStop in North America will net you two extra Mission Collections and the "Mitama of Niijima Yae." Amazon pre-orders get the "Mitama of Momotaro," a warrior's soul that strengthens skill, and the Cat Ears and Fox Mask armors.
As for Europe, pre-orders via Amazon, Game, and independent retailers through Centresoft get the "Mitama of Niijima Yae" and Fox Mask armor, while PlayStation Network pre-orders get the "Mitama of Momotaro" and Cat Ears armor.
