Koei Tecmo is bringing Touken Ranbu Warriors to North America and Europe, the company announced today. This is the game known as Touken Ranbu Musou in Japan.

Touken Ranbu Warriors is the first console game in the Touken Ranbu series that mixes the training of the Touken Ranbu Online simulation game with the action of the musou series, delivering must-play 1 vs. 1,000 combat. We have a bit of additional information below.

During today’s Japanese Nintendo Direct, publishers DMM Games and Nitroplus, along with developers Omega Force and Ruby Party, shared a final release date for Touken Ranbu Musou. The game will arrive on February 17, 2022 in Japan. Pricing is set at 8,778 yen.

More information about Touken Ranbu Musou is coming soon. A presentation will be held on September 24 at 8 PM Japan time with the latest details.

Here’s a new trailer:

Publishers DMM Games and Nitroplus, along with developers Omega Force and Ruby Party, today confirmed Yamanbagiri Kunihiro as the last captain in Touken Ranbu Musou. As is the case with past reveals, the news comes thanks to the official website.

Yamanbagiri Kunihiro won’t be going to battle alone, as he’ll be joined by another unit. Based on what’s shown in the image above, Yamanbagiri Chougi should be assisting. We’re used to seeing at least two additional units per leader, but that won’t be the case here.

Tsurumaru Kuninaga was today unveiled as the captain of the fourth unit in Touken Ranbu Musou. Publishers DMM Games and Nitroplus, along with developers Omega Force and Ruby Party, announced the news through the game’s official website.

Tsurumaru Kuninaga will be accompanied by two other units in Touken Ranbu Musou, who are teased in the silhouette above. Those characters are presumed to be Ookurikara and Shokudaikiri Mitsutada.

Heshikiri Hasebe will be featured in Touken Ranbu Musou, publishers DMM Games and Nitroplus as well as developers Omega Force and Ruby Party announced today. The playable character will act as the captain of the game’s third unit. You can see silhouettes of two others that will be a part of Kasen Kanesada’s unit above (who are presumably Tomoegata Naginata and Yagen Toushirou).

A couple of other characters have been announced for Touken Ranbu Musou outside of Heshikiri Hasebe. As part of the original announcement, we heard that Mikazuki Munechika will be leading the first unit, accompanied by Tonbokiri and Sengo Muramasa. Kasen Kanesada will be in charge of the second unit, who is joined by Hyuuga Masamune, Ichigo Hitofuri, and Namazuo Toushirou. There’ll be a total of five units and fifteen characters. 

When Touken Ranbu Musou was announced last week, Mikazuki Munechika was revealed as captain of the first unit. It’s now been confirmed that Kasen Kanesada will be featured in the game as the captain of the second unit.

Touken Ranbu Musou will include fifteen playable characters spread across across five units.

Touken Ranbu Musou is in development for Switch, but a release window has not been shared at this time.
