The demo will let you experience the game’s main prologue – which includes 15 playable members of the Touken Danshi – from which your save data can be carried over to the full version of the game.
Those that use the game’s Photo Mode and post their favourite scenes on Twitter will also be in with the chance to receive “a limited edition Touken Ranbu Warriors poster and a digital copy of the game on the platform of their choice” – with three winners to be selected at random.
The first-ever console game based on DMM Games‘ Touken Ranbu series will fuse the Touken training of the Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- simulation game with the one-on-1,000 combat from the Warriors musou series, you will have the chance to battle alongside partner characters and engage in head-to-head duels with your enemies.
You can expect 15 characters from Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-, in which famous swords take the form of warriors named Touken Danshi (swordsmen) and these elite fighters are sworn to protect history.
In Touken Ranbu Warriors, Touken Danshi members have been drifting through time without their master – the Saniwa – to lead them, when the fearsome History Retrograde Army (HRA) attack them.
After the initial conflict has ended, the Government of the Time approaches the Touken Danshi and sends them on a mission into the war-torn Sengoku Era where Japanese history is being revised. It is up to them to restore order and the original timeline.
You will also be able to explore the Honmaru, the main base for the game’s heroes. You will be able to freely place the Touken Danshi and experience their daily lives, which “can only be experienced in this game.”
Touken Ranbu Warriors will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 24th May 2022.
