This is an action game in which players assume the role of a young demon slayer living in a fictional village in feudal Japan. From a third-person perspective, players engage in melee-style combat with a variety of demons and boss creatures. Characters use swords, spears, clubs, and bows to attack and kill enemies in frenetic battles; action is highlighted by impact sounds and cries of pain. Some battle sequences depict giant demons losing limbs, tentacles, or other appendages. A handful of cutscenes depict human characters getting shot or stabbed, resulting in small splashes of blood.
The game includes some suggestive material: a snake demon depicted with bare breasts (without nipples/detail); dialogue about someone “peeping” on bathing women (e.g., “I’ve heard talk of someone called ‘Peeping Tom’ causing trouble”; “Perv! You’re just a total perv!”). Game text includes some references to alcohol: “Sake brewer”; “He was a lover of wine, and Minamoto . . .used that to his advantage to get him drunk. . .”; “He was arrested after killing someone in a drunken fit of rage. . .” The word “a*s” appears in dialogue.
Toukiden 2 comes out on the 21st of March in North America for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PC. You can preorder the Tecmo Koei game, if you are interested, with this link from Amazon.
