posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Koei Tecmo Games posted a four-minute promotional anime video on Wednesday for the company's upcoming release of the Toukiden PlayStation Vita game. Studio 4°C animated the short. The short follows the "Mononofu" demon hunter Ōka (played by Masumi Asano).
Jiro Kanai (Street Fighter IV: The Ties That Bind) served as director, animation director, and storyboarder for the short. Akiko Saito served as CG director, Kumiko Narumo served as color key and color coordinator, Yusuke Yagisawa served as art director, Mutsuko Kajigaya served as animation checker, Akiko Kankon produced the short, and Naoya Amada supervised the production. Hideki Sakamoto handled the music.
The game is set several years after a temporal cataclysm unleashed demons into the human world. Players control a demon hunter charged with ridding the world of the new menace. The studio Omega-Force, which developed the Musou (Warriors) franchise, is developing the title and Hidari (Fractale, Natsuiro Kiseki, Vividred Operation) designed the characters for the game.
The game ships in Japan on Thursday, and Tecmo Koei plans to release the game in the West on PlayStation Vita in the fourth quarter of 2013.
Urasuke Ayano launched the digital prequel manga Toukiden Woniuchi in Sony's Reader Store on Wednesday.
