Toukiden is a third-person monster hunting game which employs groups of players or NPCs fighting together against various monsters during quests. Each player can customize their choice of weapons, armor and skills. Special abilities can be obtained through the usage of souls, or mitama, which can be collected during the progress of the game. These mitama can level up by gaining experience from battles, or by paying a certain sum of haku. Different mitama have abilities with various characteristics, and can be categorised into various groups such as offensive, defensive, or recovery mitama. Upon slaying a monster, the players or NPCs can "purify" the monster, which collects items useful in upgrading weapons and armor. Monsters fall into the categories of small and large oni, with large oni being the boss-type enemies within the game.

Players can engage in missions co-operatively via an ad-hoc WiFi connection, or over the internet. Additional missions are available in the form of downloadable content.
More monster-hunting madness, this time in a feudal Japanese setting. The oni are massing, and you (along with your fellow players/AI NPC friends) are the only bulwark preventing them from destroying the world. What does this mean? It means you spend lots of time bathing with the priestess. I'm only half kidding. Making her like you is a quick-fire way to help power up your mitama, and therefore make you less of a weakling. It's a really fun game, especially when the missions decide it's time to screw you over. For example, when you complete a mission with two NPCs to kill a boss oni, and your very next mission is to fight two waves of small oni, followed by that same boss oni, alone. >.>

I remember reading about this about a month ago when I was looking up the new Monster Hunter. I'm all over this.


This post gave me a false sense of hope that it was out and I could go buy it tomorrow. Still a month away. Sad panda.
