Koei Tecmo Games has announced their lineup of games for the 2016 Tokyo Game Show, some of which have been confirmed for a western release. The six games on show will have new trailers, presentations and demos revealed at the event this September. The games being showcased include Berserk, Nioh, Toukiden 2, Atelier Firis: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Journey, Nights of Azure 2, and the new Samurai Warriors title.
Video game adaptation of the gory anime Berserk by Omega Force will be present at the Tokyo Game Show. A hands-on demo will be available for attendees to play showcasing the game’s close following of some the manga’s more prevalent story arcs and “one versus thousands” combat style typical to Omega Force's Musou games, most famously Dynasty Warriors. The game will be available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita upon release.
Demon hunting RPG Toukiden 2 will be at the game show and has been confirmed for a western release in early 2017. The sequel will have an open world environment filled with interesting landmarks to explore and fearsome Oni for Slayers to battle. More information on the platforms and western release have been promised in the coming weeks.
Team Ninja’s new title Nioh will be showing off new content during the event. The dark fantasy action RPG tells the tale of the first western samurai, William Adams, set in a world full of supernatural creatures from Japanese folklore. Nioh will be a PS4 exclusive when released.
GUST will be bringing the next installment to the Atelier series to the Tokyo Game Show. Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey is the second part of the Mystery trilogy following Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Book. More exciting journeys await cute alchemists as they learn about synthesis and alchemy in this next installment, which will be playable during the show.
Another sequel from GUST this year at the show is Nights of Azure 2. Information about the characters, story line and basic game mechanics for this recently announced project have already been revealed and more will be displayed during the event. Producer Keisuke Kikuchi returns to the demon-plagued world with the same JRPG mechanics and a whole new story.
Samurai Warriors: Sanada Maru from Keoi Tecmo America and Omega Force is another game confirmed for a western release in 2017. The new Samurai Warriors game will be a tactical action genre with “one versus thousands” combat focusing on the character Yukimura Sanada. The name of the project is subject to change before release, but it will center on the inner workings of the Sanada clan during the 16th century during which a civil war breaks out between two brothers.
The Tokyo Game Show will be taking place on September 15-18 in Tokyo, Japan. Koei Tecmo will be showing these six games during the event and more details regarding them are sure to follow. More information about Koei Tecmo’s activities during the event can be followed on their facebook page here.
