Tecmo Koei has confirmed that they will be releasing Toukiden Kyoku, an upgraded version of Toukiden, for the PlayStation Vita later this year.

In the latest edition of Famitsu magazine, it is detailed that Toukiden Kyoku (which in English translates to Toukiden Extreme) is 50 percent complete and will release in Japan in 2014.

Toukiden Kyoku is an upgraded version of the original Toukiden, and includes a new demon named ‘Imihayahi’ that appears three months after the events in the original game. Additionally, Toukiden Kyoku will feature a new NPC character, new equipment, firearm weapons, more spirits and armour, extra customization, an increased number of special moves and double the demons. We are told that the story in this game will be similar to that of its predecessor.

Toukiden Kyoku will retail at ¥5,800 for a physical copy and ¥5,143 to download. As of yet there has been no news of  a Western localisation for Toukiden Kyoku, but as soon as there is The Vita Lounge will keep you posted!

    Damn these enhanced versions! There’s no reason this kind of thing can’t be added via updates and DLC…

    • darkknezz

      agreed

    Okay… I see they’re all starting to take lessons from Capcom… Perhaps I should skip Soul Sacrifice Delta if they all think it will get them more sales…

  • Mostafa M. A. Morsy

    well after soul sacrifice i’m glad i kept my money in my pocket
    looks like i’ll play the waiting game for all them hunter-esque games

    Well, I love Toukiden, I’m not sure what to do about this and SS Delta because I like them too much to avoid them, I’ll probably wait for a price drop on either title. But I’m sure I’ll pick them up.. unless by then Toukiden 2 is announced lol.

    Personally I’d tend to not like upgraded retail versions, but this game is so good that I’ll probably be buying Toukiden: Kyoku at launch anyway ^_^”

      Agreed as long as the game improves everything it will be worth the buy, Ive stated before that Toukiden is a good game but not a great game; a “G” version like extreme has to address all the shortcomings of the previous edition.
