TOUKIDEN: KIWAMI LAUNCHES FOR PLAYSTATION(r)4 AND PLAYSTATION(r)VITA

BURLINGAME, Calif. March 31, 2015
KOEI TECMO America today announced that the demon-slaying epic, Toukiden: Kiwami, is now available in North America for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system for $59.99 and the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system for $39.99. Set against a backdrop inspired by various historical periods of Japan, Toukiden: Kiwami continues the tale of humanitys last stand for survival against powerful demons (Oni) that are destroying the world.

I believe players will agree when I say that Toukiden: Kiwami is a fantastic monster-slaying experience, said Amos Ip, SVP and General Manager of KOEI TECMO America. Not only will players enjoy larger-than-life battles alongside an epic storyline, Omega Force has included some really interesting gameplay features to sweeten the pot, such as cross-play and cross-save functionality.

For its debut on PlayStation®4, Toukiden: Kiwami picks up the epic Toukiden story from the beginning, offering all of the content from the previously released Toukiden: The Age of Demons to introduce new players to its vast, demon-ridden world. Returning Slayers can discover the new Kiwami storyline or pick up where they left off by carrying their save data over from Toukiden: The Age of Demons to both platforms and enjoy a fresh experience with their hard-earned progress. Players will also enjoy cross-save functionality between the PlayStation®4 system and PS Vita versions of Toukiden: Kiwami.

Toukiden: Kiwami also includes an extensive, cross-play-enabled multiplayer mode, in which players on both systems will team up and slay Oni like never before. Players can battle Oni with a squad of up to four Slayers comprised of various NPCs or other players via online cooperative play.

Almost double the size of the original game, Toukiden: Kiwami includes numerous additions that enrich the gameplay experience through new story and content. Featuring new Oni to battle, an extensive character creation mode, 300 fallen heroes (Mitama) whose rescued souls help strengthen the players team, and much more, developer Omega Force creators of the renowned DYNASTY WARRIORS series have aimed to make Kiwami the definitive Toukiden experience, offering updates and vast improvements to popular features requested by fans.

In the deeply rich world of Toukiden: Kiwami, Oni have hidden in the shadows aiming to torment mankind. Throughout history, a secret cast of warriors known as Slayers have been trained to dispose of the demonic threat before it could consume the world. However, an event known as the Awakening generated rifts in space and time, causing places that had long disappeared from the world to resurface, and unleashing hordes of demons that now relentlessly hunt humans.

The players role in Toukiden: Kiwami is to complete various missions, strengthen his or her relationships with the other warriors in the village, and eventually do battle with the largest of the Oni to banish them back to their dimension and free the souls of the heroes theyve trapped. In turn, when these souls are free, they stay with the player and provide him or her with a variety of equippable abilities.
