Koei Tecmo that their upcoming musou spinoff, Touken Ranbu Warriors, currently has a demo available on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. The latter version of the game was announced yesterday and is releasing on the same date as the Switch iteration. The demo solely comprises the first five tutorial battles.
You can view the Steam trailer for Touken Ranbu Warriors below:
Touken Ranbu is a multimedia franchise about beautiful blade boys based on historical blades. They have to fight against a group of history revisionists intent on changing the past. Protecting it is the Saniwa’s mission as they work for the Government of Time. In the original strategy game, players would summon those partners through a specific gacha system where they’d spend currencies such as metals to summon it.
Touken Ranbu Warriors covers an alternative story where the Saniwa’s base, Honmaru, is attacked. In the midst of the confusion, this leader figure is gone, and only a few blades persevere in continuing at that specific point of time, waiting for the Saniwa’s return. Those characters are divided into five teams, and a new, mysterious blade boy called Omokage is also introduced in the game.
For more details about Touken Ranbu Warriors, check out the gameplay features video, which was shared along with the First Team trailer. It showcases the specific mechanics of the action game revolving around the relationships between the boys. As groups of two characters, players have a partner who can help with follow-ups and counters, a special Souto Mode based on this partnership system, and bonding events.
Touken Ranbu Warriors is releasing in the West for Nintendo Switch and Steam on May 24, 2022.
