Touken Ranbu Warriors announced for the west
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.
Touken Ranbu Warriors features 15 characters from Touken Ranbu Online, where famous swords take the form of warriors named Touken Danshi (swordsmen), and the elite fighters are sworn to protect history. In Touken Ranbu Warriors, members of Touken Danshi have been drifting through time without their master – the Saniwa – to lead them, when they are suddenly attacked by the fearsome History Retrograde Army (HRA). After the initial conflict, the Touken Danshi are approached by the Government of the Time, and sent on a mission into the war-torn Sengoku Era where the revision of Japanese history is already underway. Can the Touken Danshi heroes restore order while restoring the original timeline? The fierce but beautiful battles of the Touken Danshi are finally a reality!
Touken Ranbu Musou will offer musou action including battling alongside partner characters and head-to-head duels against enemies. Also featured is the “Honmaru,” the main base of the heroes where players can freely place members of the Touken Danshi in order to get a glimpse of their daily lives.
View a trailer and a presentation video below.
Touken Ranbu Musou will be featured at the Tokyo Game Show on October 2 starting at 11 PM Japan time as part of the official TGS2021 DMM Special Program. The segment will be simultaneously interpreted in English.
Touken Ranbu Musou launches on May 24 in both North America and Europe.
