Koei Tecmo has revealed that Touken Ranbu Warriors is coming to Nintendo Switch, the first-ever console game based on DMM Games’ Touken Ranbu series.
Fusing 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 on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 24th May 2022.
