Namco Bandai Games began streaming a third promotional video on Tuesday for the Toriko Ultimate Survival Nintendo 3DS game. The video outlines the game's story and features gameplay for the following playable characters: Toriko, Coco, Sunny, Zebra, Komatsu, Rin, Teppei, Starjun, Ootake, Ichiryuu, and Midora. The video also confirms that Rex will be a playable character. Other playable characters include Zonge and Jirou.
The video notes that the game will include special missions where players can fight legendary beasts such as the Hannya Panda. Other special missions can be unlocked using the 2D barcode in certain issues of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. The game will also allow players to take screenshots of their results and submit them to the official website to participate in a ranking contest. Contest winners can win a Nintendo 3DS XL, among other rewards. Co-op play with up to four people is also available.
The game takes place on an island called Shikijima, which features more than 200 species of wild animals. Toriko and his friends must work together to collect ingredients on this dangerous island. Tengu Buranchi will be available as a limited-edition character, and Tommyrod and Grinpatch will also be featured in the game.
The "ultimate gourmet food hunting" game is slated to ship on November 28. The game will retail for 5,980 yen (about US$60).
Toriko Ultimate Survival is the latest game based on Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro's Toriko manga. Namco Bandai Games has previously released these other Toriko games: Toriko Gourmet Survival and Toriko Gourmet Survival 2 for the PlayStation Portable, and Toriko Gourmet Monsters! and Toriko Gourmega Battle! for the Nintendo 3DS.
