BURLINGAME, Calif. – May 24, 2022 – KOEI TECMO America is proud to announce that their highly-anticipated musou thriller, Touken Ranbu Warriors, is now available across North America on the Nintendo Switch™ and PC via Steam®. This title marks the first time that developer Ruby Party, known for their Otome style games, has released a title in the West – combining their expertise with the Omega Force development team to bring a new Touken Ranbu experience to life.
In Touken Ranbu Warriors, famous swords take on the form of warriors known as the Touken Danshi (swordsmen). Fifteen Touken Danshi have been drifting through time without their master to guide them when they are suddenly attacked by the menacing History Retrograde Army (HRA). After the fighting breaks out, the Touken Danshi are approached by the Government of the Time, and are sent on a mission into the war-torn Sengoku Era where the revision of Japanese history is already underway.
Touken Ranbu Warriors is a collaboration between the ‘spirits of blades’ simulation game Touken Ranbu - ONLINE – by DMM GAMES and NITRO PLUS, and KOEI TECMO’s famed 1 vs. 1,000 WARRIORS series. Touken Ranbu fans can now experience their favorite characters in 3D for the first time as they take on missions against the History Retrograde Army.
Utilize the powerful abilities and graceful actions of the Touken Danshi, including Hissatsu attacks, which perfectly capture each character’s personality as they elegantly defeat enemies in their path. Two characters can also partner up on the battlefield to unleash electrifying co-operative attacks, and the more certain Touken Danshi fight together, the more their bonds deepen and special conversation events can even take place. The game also features two different control modes: Easy Mode allows simple button commands for those new to the action game genre, while Regular Mode allows for a wider range of actions for fans already accustomed to musou-style controls.
In addition, Touken Ranbu Warriors features the Honmaru – the main base for the Touken Danshi – where players can get a glimpse of the daily life of their favorite characters. Occasionally mini-games will take place between missions. For example: if two Touken Danshi are together in the kitchen, they can work together to create mochi. If the mini-game is cleared, materials or koban can be obtained which can be used to upgrade the Honmaru or the Touken Danshi.
Aside from the Standard Edition of the game, Touken Ranbu Warriors is also available to purchase as a Digital Deluxe Edition, which includes an assortment of downloadable content. DLC packs featured in the Digital Deluxe Edition include the “Honmaru Backdrop”, which enables gamers to change the season of the honmaru; the “Additional Music” DLC, which includes five additional music pieces from Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- specially arranged for this title; and the “Uchiban Outfit” 16 piece set, which allows gamers to change the outfits of the Touken Danshi.
