KOEI TECMO Europe is proud to announce that their highly-anticipated musou thriller, Touken Ranbu Warriors, is now available digitally across Europe 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 game in the West – combining their expertise with the Omega Force development team to bring a new Touken Ranbu experience to life. To celebrate the game’s launch, KOEI TECMO Europe released an action-packed launch trailer to showcase what fans can expect from the title.
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. Fans of the Touken Ranbu series can now experience their favourite characters in 3D for the first time as they take on missions against the History Retrograde Army. Utilise the powerful abilities and graceful actions of the Touken Danshi, including Hissatsu attacks which perfectly capture each character’s personality as they elegantly defeat any enemy in their path. Two characters can also partner up on the battlefield to unleash electrifying co-operative attacks — the more they fight together their bonds deepen and special conversation events can 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.
Touken Ranbu Warriors also features the Honmaru, the main base for the Touken Danshi, where players can get a glimpse of the daily life of their favourite 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.
Two versions of the highly-anticipated musou title are available for purchase today; a Standard Edition, which comes with a digital copy of Touken Ranbu Warriors, and a Digital Deluxe Edition, which includes a digital copy of the game and access to an assortment of DLC. Special 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 5 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.
