Game Review: Toukiden Kiwami

About:

“Toukiden: Kiwami” is a hunting action game where players take on the role of a Slayer possessing unique abilities, and battle the Oni to save mankind from destruction.
To defeat these huge Oni, players band together to sever, pierce, and crush parts of the Oni using the Targeted Destruction System!

Sever! Pierce! Crush! -Targeted Destruction System-
Some of the Oni players will encounter are many times the size of a human. Defeating these require more than simply attacking. Players must sever a part from the Oni’s body, pierce it, and then crush it in order to destroy it. The appropriate use of blade or bow, and cooperation between friendly Slayers is the only way to successfully defeat an Oni!

When Oni are beaten, they release captured spirits called Mitama. These Mitama can take residence in weapons and aid the Slayer unlock certain special powers for use against the Oni. There are a wide variety of powers and players can enjoy creating their own original equipment.

Review:

Toukiden Kiwami is a completion game of Toukiden: The Age of Demons. The game has Data transfer feature if you finished Toukiden the age of Demons you can transfer your file and continue or you can start over the game starts from the age of demons and continues to the new story line. In the new story line you will meet 4 new character and you will have more weapon options. The game also has a new mission area and an option to fight endless amounts of large oni which was quite fine.

The continuation of the story was quite interesting it has some cool twists and turns and you will engage with the characters at the same level are the original ones. The only downside to the game is that the mission areas are limited and its quite repetitive. So its like any other Koei Tecmo in that aspect. Still though the story line is worth the play. I enjoyed the game. It was fun.

Overall Rate: 3/5
