Koei Tecmo has released a free demo for his upcoming game Touken Ranbu Warriors. A collaboration between the Musu (warrior) series and Touken Ranbu – a free online card game for the browser – launches on April 24.
The demo will allow you to transfer your saves to the full game when it launches next week. In the demo, you can play through the prologue and try out all 15 playable members of Touken Danshi.
In addition, Koei Tecmo has launched a photo campaign competition. From today until May 23rd, players who download the demo can dive into photo mode, snap photos of their favorite moments and share them on social media. Three fans can win a limited edition poster and two keychains featuring two different characters, and three more can win a digital copy of Touken Ranbu Warriors! For more information about the competition, visit the game’s official website.
It might also be one to try before release. In our import review of the Japanese version, we gave the game a 5/10, praising the graphics but feeling that the game didn’t bring anything new to the Warriors formula:
For a game that’s more or less based on a formula established over 20 years ago, Touken Ranbu Warriors – in terms of basic gameplay – is nothing new for Musou veterans. However, it is an almost overly loose variant of the template, with the actual “Easy Mode” offering almost no resistance at all. It feels less like wading into a battlefield teeming with bloodthirsty enemies and more like sweeping an endless succession of garbage-strewn floors.
