Tecmo Koei Announces Three Upcoming Titles
Tecmo Koei today announced a number of titles currently under development for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, and slated for release in the first months of 2014.
Toukiden: The Age of Demons
Following the success in Japan where its current sales stand well over the 400,000 mark, Toukiden: the Age of Demons is now being localized for release in North America for the PlayStation Vita.
In Toukiden, players can customize characters, weapons and armor and form a group of hunters to take down the destructive Oni- demons of varying strength and size who have invaded the world through cracks in space and time. This game boasts a character creation mode, six non-player characters designed by Atelier Ayesha artist Hidari, and six different weapon types, each of which can be forged and upgraded to the player’s preferences. Toukiden: The Age of Demons is set against a backdrop inspired by various historical periods of Japan, while it also features 200 characters based on both fictional and historical Japanese figures, whose souls help players strengthen their team and defeat their enemies.
Atelier Escha and Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky
The latest instalment in the Atelier series, Atelier Escha and Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky is a direct sequel to Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk and will be released in early 2014 for the PlayStation 3.
For the first time on PlayStation 3, Atelier series players can choose if they will follow the story of Escha or Logy, a novelty that offers a unique story perspective and gameplay experience. Escha’s story is a tale of the everyday adventures of an alchemist, whereas Logy’s story follows a darker approach filled with traditional RPG elements and focused on world exploration.
Deception IV: Blood Ties
From the producer of Fatal Frame comes the re-imagining of the classic Tecmo title ‘Tecmo’s Deception’, first released in 1996 on the PlayStation. The Deception series focuses in giving players a taste of what it’s like to play on the side of evil by using a variety of traps to exact revenge on their adversaries.
Deception IV: Blood Ties is being developed for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita and is, much like its predecessors, a strategy focused action series where players control a main character that defeats enemies by luring them into traps.
