Product Details:

An expansive fantasy world influenced by historical and traditional Japanese elements. This new franchise casts players in the role of the demon-fighting warrior, known as a Slayer. Starting from the Utakata Village headquarters where they will accept quests, players will venture out to battle monstrous and deadly Oni (demons) before they destroy all of humanity. Players can select party members from a supporting cast of characters, or join together with up to three other players through ad-hoc mode.

Story

Since ancient times, a clandestine group has fought to keep the world safe from supernatural beings known as Oni. Calling themselves the Slayers, they have protected mankind from within the shadows of history for the past 1,000 years. However, a prolonged age of peace was suddenly ended by a mighty catastrophe. The land cracked, time was warped beyond all recognition, and the borders between the human world and the Otherworld, home of the Oni, became blurred. During this time, vast hordes of Oni made their way from the Otherworld to this world.

With much of the land under the control of the Oni, the Slayers gathered together the survivors in various villages across the land in order to make their stand. For seven days and seven nights, a short but violent conflict raged and after it was over, mankind was barely able to maintain a hold on their territory. This event later became known as the Awakening. Ever since the tragic events of that week, the Slayers have emerged from the shadows to become the protectors of humanity in the new age.

Slash, Thrust, and Crush!

Powerful targeted destruction system actions

Some Oni are massive creatures that can be several times the size of a human being. It takes more than just regular attacks to defeat these opponents, and Slayers need to slash, thrust or crush the body parts of the Oni in order to destroy them. Players can skillfully use weapons such as a sword or bow to work together with their allies and take down the Oni.

Mitama - the Souls of Japanese Historical Heroes

Use the power of the Mitama to slay the powerful Oni!

Mitama are the souls of fallen heroes that are released upon defeating an Oni, and players can use them to imbue their weapons with special abilities and attributes. Various effects can be obtained from these Mitama, and by upgrading their weapons, players can utilize multiple Mitama at the same time to choose the ones that best suit their playing style and strategy. Additionally, with more than 200 Mitama in total, each with their own artwork and in-game voices, there is plenty of incentive to try and collect them all.

An Original World that Blends Historical Japan with Fantasy Elements!

A grand historical fantasy

The story takes place in a world in which the power of the Oni has warped time and space. Within Utakata Village, on the front line in the war against the Oni, the player takes on the role of a new recruit of an organization known as the Slayers that serves to eradicate the Oni menace. The player must venture forth into a variety of battlefields, each of which is representative of a warped version of an era from Japanese history, from the early Asuka period to the closing days of the Tokugawa shogunate. This game focuses on Tecmo Koei's forte by mixing "Japanese" and "historical" elements to form a unique and vibrant world.

An Eclectic Cast of Allies for the Main Character

Hunting action for up to 4 players!

Joining the player is a group of veteran Slayers within Utakata Village that have fought against the Oni for some time. The stories of these Slayers, such as Ōka, who possesses unmatched fighting ability with a sword, will be told as they fight alongside the player.

Weapons

Sword - Attack Technique: Slash

This weapon is easy to handle and features a good balance of swift, wide-ranging and powerful attacks. A variety of fighting styles can be utilized by using techniques such as the "Twisting Slash," which enables attacks while avoiding those of the enemies, or the "Vacuum Slash," which unleashes a powerful shockwave.

Gauntlets - Attack Technique: Crush

The weight of these weapons means that the gap between attacks is long, but their strength more than makes up for it. Landing a "Fire Hook" attack on a body part will cause it to be engulfed in flames and any damage inflicted on that body part will be increased.

Chain & Sickle - Attack Technique: Slash/Crush

A weapon that features Slash attacks from the sickle as well as Crush attacks with the flail, making it a versatile weapon that can perform a variety of attacks against targets that are both close up and far away.

Bow - Attack Technique: Thrust

This is the only weapon capable of attacking targets from long distances. For normal attacks, the longer it is held, the more powerful it will be. By combining it with the "Quick Nock" option which can offer three different types of attacks, it is useful against smaller Oni as well as larger ones.

Knives - Attack Technique: Slash/Thrust

Holding these knives in each hand enables rapid attacks which make up for the smaller amount of damage inflicted. They can be used both in the air and on the ground, and since there are multiple options to attack from the air, it provides for fighting styles that take elevation into account.

Spear - Attack Technique: Thrust/Crush

Focusing on mid-ranged thrusting attacks, it enables users to keep a distance while fighting. It can also perform Crush attacks by swinging the shaft around the user's surrounding area. Each of its attacks can increase their attack strength by building up power before the blow, and since the charge time is short, it is a good choice for performing multiple powerful attacks.

Battle System

Mitama

The souls of more than 200 notable heroes from Japanese history to appear in the game as Mitama. By affixing these Mitama and their unique abilities to weapons, special Skills can be unlocked. Release the Mitama being held captive by the Oni and obtain the strength of these heroes for use in battle.
