Two development studios have joined ranks, according to Famitsu, to bring a game together where you’ll be squaring off against giant demons.
Tecmo Koei and Omega Force have paired together to commence work on Toukiden. The news released by Sony took place during the recent Tokyo Playstation press conference. If Omega Force rings a bell, that’s because they developed the well received Dynasty Warriors game.
Toukiden will be developed for both the Sony PSP and PS Vita and is looking at being released sometime during 2013 although Famitsu reports that the date won’t be too far into the new year, this suggests it could possibly be hitting stores in the first half of 2013.
Head man from the Dynasty Warriors series, Hisashi Koinuma over at Tecmo Koei and Kono, who hails from Sony Computer Entertainment Japan, had a brief chat with Famitsu about Toukiden.Hisashi mentioned that the game will play totally different to Dynasty Warriors, the main difference being that you’ll be tackling the aforementioned giant demons although there will be a variety of demons to contend with.
This is shaping up as an exciting game from two of the big guns in the game, hopefully this will lead to more team ups in the near future from other developers.
