Koei Tecmo has revealed a new monster that you will be doing battle with in the upcoming Toukiden Extreme.

The new enemy¬†is named¬†Yachigiri, a lion-type Oni that has two massive tusks on the side of his face. We are told that Yachigiri is able to kill his enemies in many ways, which is how he became to be called Yachigiri – which loosely translates to ‘eight thousand slashes’. These tusks, combined with sharp claws and teeth, will make Yachigiri a tough match for your team of Slayers.

Koei Tecmo has also revealed two new Mitamas. One is a heavy drinker called Shuten-doji and the other is called Kaihime, or Lady Kai.

Set to release in Japan on August 28th, keep an eye on The Vita Lounge for all the latest Toukiden news. For now though, check out Yachigiri in action and see the new Mitama in the gallery below;

    Holy crap, that monster looks awesome. Crap. I knew this would happen. Step 1: be upset that a better version of the game I just bought is getting an improved reiteration. Step 2: See things that improve the game that could have been done as DLC. Step 3: See something that actually looks awesome. Step 4: Begin to get excited for the new stuff. Step 5: Wait anxiously for its release and/or hope for localization. Currently, I’m on step 4.
