Toukiden: Kiwami is the upgraded version of Toukiden, building on the original with a host of new characters, weapons and monsters to increase gameplay even further. This edition lets players bring their data over from the original while also offering cross save and cross platform multiplayer.
Set within a demon overrun game world players move around the massive world accepting quests to clear different game areas with their party of warriors. For those that haven’t played Toukiden you’ll get to play through the original story first before experiencing the extra content (while imported saves can choose to skip this part of the game if they wish).
Combat is similar to other third person monster hunting games where you’ll combine your main characters skills and abilities with supporting characters controlled by the AI. All of these characters have customisable weapons, items and skills to facilitate the creation of a strategy that suits for the players preferred style. The AI are just as potent as the player in Toukiden: Kiwami which really encourages you not to simply try and carry your team.
The equipment and skill curve is very well-designed in Toukiden: Kiwami with players purifying monsters after they are defeated to gain items for weapons and armour crafting. While abilities are gained through souls which are slowly gathered throughout the game and can be offensive, defensive and recovery orientated.
In the monster hunting genre Toukiden: Kiwami is near the top end especially thanks to the expansion of content in the updated release. Fans of developing a strong team will particularly enjoy what Toukiden: Kiwami offers thanks to the strong AI and depth of items.
