Tecmo Koei’s producer Hisashi Koinuma has revealed that Toukiden: The Age of Demons was made for the PlayStation Vita due to Capcom’s Monster Hunter series only seeing release on the 3DS.

In Japan, there is a large market for portables like Vita and PSP. Within that, there are a lot of people into hunting games, as well. Capcom has been releasing their titles on Nintendo 3DS,” says Koinuma. “Because of that, we thought there are a lot of Sony users who would like to see a hunting game and that’s why we came up with Toukiden.

Released last month, Toukiden: The Age of Demons is a game filled with Japanese mythology and lore. Koinuma proclaimed that “Koei is well known for are historical titles, especially games based on Japanese history. That being one of our strengths we used that has a key theme for Toukiden: The Age of Demons.”

    And that is why Soul Sacrifice is better.

      Soul Sacrifice was awesome. I like Toukiden as well though. It’s pretty fun soo far. They are both really good games. Gotta say Soul Sacrifice will keep a special place in my mind, it was the first RPG I’ve played that got me hooked.

    No surprise, we knew that it was their attempt at a MH clone.

    I really like it though, it’s a very accessible game, I’m hoping for some DLC bosses though!

    Soul Sacrifice is a game I supported day 1 with a copy for me and my sister, and it’s a very good game which does it’s own mechanics a great service.. but whenever I played it, I always wished I could just hold a weapon and hit things for real, not temporarily.

    Toukiden makes me appreciate SS even more for it’s unique aspects, but I think Toukiden does what it does very well and is a great new IP I hope to see more from 🙂

    Having played both Toukiden and MH3U, I have to admit that monster hunter on the 3DS is better (you just can’t beat that original formula). There’s a lot that I like about Toukiden it feels very accesible in my opinion, overall I feel the game takes more cues from God Eater than Monster Hunter. The biggest gripe I have with Toukiden is the online, I’m constantly being logged out or the connection freezes just as youve assembled your party plus it also freezes if you try to cancel after someone has accepted.
