It seems alright so far
Toukiden 2 arrived in Japan in July of 2016, but given its niche premise of fighting oni during the Meiji era of Japan, it makes perfect sense that it’s been held until “spring 2017” for the west. Koei Tecmo gave me the opportunity to test out a demo build of the game in advance, and for the most part, it’s more of the same.
Depending on your experience with the original, that could be a good or a bad thing. I’m pretty much inline with Kyle’s assessment from 2014, as I found it to be one of Omega Force’s less inspired works, despite the supernatural premise. The sequel, at least in this early build right now even has some translation typos, and not a whole lot that sets it apart from the pack at the moment.
Get a look at the first 15 minutes for yourself, and stay tuned for our official review closer to launch.
