Koei Tecmo announces localizations for Toukiden 2, Atelier Firis, and Nights of Azure 2
Today, Koei Tecmo Europe announced its line up for Tokyo Game Show 2016. Alongside titles already announced for localization such as Nioh and the Berserk 'musou' game, the publisher announced that Toukiden 2, Atelier Firis: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Journey, and Nights of Azure 2 would be released in western territories in 2017.
Toukiden 2 is planned for an 'early 2017' English launch, while Atelier Firis and Nights of Azure 2 are set to release by the end of next year.
While all three titles have PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita versions in Japan, western platforms have not been announced. (The PlayStation Vita port of Nights of Azure was not localized, and the original Toukiden received a PC port in the west.)
In Japan, Toukiden 2 was released in July, Atelier Firis has been recently delayed to November 2, and Nights of Azure 2 is set to release on December 22.
Koei Tecmo is pleased to announce the return of the popular demon hunting RPG title ‘Toukiden’, with the western release of its second instalment in early 2017. Taking Oni-hunting to a brand new level, Toukiden 2 introduces an open-world environment filled with strange life forms, empty ruins, unexplored caves, and fearsome Oni.
Players will be called to take the mantle of a Slayer, charged with the task of defending humanity’s last remaining villages from the supernatural threat of Oni. Taking all types of shapes and sizes, these demons creep out of dark rifts in space and time and prey on mankind. Warriors from the ancient secret cast of the Slayers are the only ones equipped to stop them!
Platforms, release date and further information on the western release of this title will be available in the following weeks.
