Toukiden Kiwami Launched on Steam
KOEI TECMO has recently announced that Toukiden Kiwami has been released on Steam worldwide, making the game now playable on the PC.
Toukiden Kiwami takes place in a world inspired by various historical periods of Japan. This world is plagued by Oni, monsters determined to plague humanity. Slayers are humans who have been trained to do battle against Oni. However, a recent event known as the Awakening caused rifts to appear, and these rifts unleashed powerful demons onto the land. The Oni take the souls of their victims, devouring some and imprisoning the souls of brave heroes, which allows them to regenerate at a rapid rate.
Players take on the role of a new Slayer recruit. They must complete various missions while also strengthening relationships with other warriors in the village. They must also do battle against the Oni to banish them back to their realm, as well as freeing the souls of the Onis' victims. Once a soul has been freed, they stay with the player to provide numerous equippable abilities.
Toukiden Kiwami will have over 1,500 weapons that can be forged and upgraded to the player's preferences. There are also over three hundred hero souls to free and use to strengthen the Slayer recruit. There is also a multiplayer mode where multiple players can team up to help bring down the most powerful Oni.
