'Touken Ranbu Warriors' Gets Music By Akiko Shikata, Shows Off Gameplay - Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 19, 2022 @ 2:10 p.m. PST

Touken Ranbu Warriors combines the Touken training of the Touken Ranbu -Online- simulation game with the action of the Warriors musou series, delivering must-play 1 vs. 1,000 combat.

Touken Ranbu Warriors features 15 characters from Touken Ranbu -Online-, where famous swords take the form of warriors named Touken Danshi (swordsmen), and the elite fighters are sworn to protect history.

In Touken Ranbu Warriors, members of Touken Danshi have been drifting through time without their master – the Saniwa – to lead them, when they are suddenly attacked by the fearsome History Retrograde Army (HRA). After the initial conflict, the Touken Danshi are approached by the Government of the Time, and sent on a mission into the war-torn Sengoku Era where the revision of Japanese history is already underway.

Can the Touken Danshi heroes restore order while restoring the original timeline? The fierce but beautiful battles of the Touken Danshi are finally a reality! 

Koei Tecmo announced that world renowned singer/songwriter Akiko Shikata is contributing three new songs to the Touken Ranbu Warriors soundtrack, including the opening theme “Color Barrage”, which can be sampled in the above new trailer.

Shikata is known across the globe for her mesmerizing musical compositions, contributing songs across a wide range of anime and video games throughout the years, including the vocals to the theme song of the NHK taiga drama Haha Moyu, the theme song and ending theme of the NHK program Genkai! Choujou Final Darkside Mystery, as well as featured songs in such games as Ar Tonelico, Surge Concerto, and Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-. The celebrated composer will include three new songs to Touken Ranbu Warriors, including the opening theme, as well as two ending songs featuring her versatile vocals entitled “Honor” and “Time”.

The new songs help convey the magic and mystery of Touken Ranbu Warriors, where famous swords take the form of warriors named Touken Danshi (swordsmen), and these elite fighters are sworn to protect history from an onslaught of evildoers. This all-new experience promises to combine the Touken training of the Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- simulation game with the breathtaking musou action of Koei Tecmo’s Warriors series, delivering must-play 1 vs. 1,000 combat.

Fans can get a glimpse of the all-new action, including the game’s damage system, in today’s new trailer. Similar to Touken Ranbu -Online-, when a certain amount of damage or a certain special attack hits one of the heroes, the Touken Danshi not only become injured, but their appearance changes. At the same time, when Touken Danshi are in an injured state their Hissatsu Gauge fills up faster, making it possible to reverse their situation and get the upper hand on the enemy attacker.

In addition, Koei Tecmo also announced that the enigmatic Omokage, voiced by Takuma Terashima, will be playable in Touken Ranbu Warriors. Omokage is a mysterious fighter who wields an otachi (great sword). The warrior is calm and collected despite his fragile appearance, and will be a key figure in the storyline alongside Mikazuki Munechika and the other Touken Danshi.

The game is set to feature the electrifying musou action fans expect from a Warriors title including battling alongside partner characters and head-to-head duels against enemies! Touken Ranbu Warriors also features the “Honmaru,” the main base of our heroes. Here, you can freely place members of the Touken Danshi in order to get a glimpse of their daily lives that can only be experienced in this game.

Touken Ranbu Warriors is coming to Nintendo Switch on May 24, 2022.
