March 9, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

If you’re having trouble deciding which system to buy Toukiden: Kiwami for, Tecmo Koei decided to help you out, offering up a PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita gameplay comparison video today.

As well, Tecmo Koei announced that a demo for Toukiden: Kiwami will go live in North America and Europe on March 25 for both the PS4 and PS Vita. It includes two game modes:

The first is an ‘introductory demo’ and is comprised by the first two chapters of Toukiden, including the edit mode where players can create and customise their own unique Slayer. This mode will also allow players to choose to equip their character with one of the three brand new weapon types (naginata, club, rifle).

The second is a set of ‘special missions’ that can also be enjoyed by those who have played ‘Toukiden: the Age of Demons’. These special missions have been specifically designed for this demo and are set to a very high difficulty level.
For those players who have never before played a game in the Toukiden series, these missions may be too difficult. However, the full version of the game will increase difficulty in a much more gradual manner, so even more difficult stages than these can eventually be cleared after powering up your equipment and character.

Although these missions are not recommended for newcomers to the series, they do include a selection of weapons, armour and Mitama the player can equip before heading out to the field and, more importantly, they will remain available for gamers to come back to for another try after they have mastered their battle skills in the full game.

By clearing all available missions, you’ll get a glimpse of Chapter 8-, where the new Kiwami portion of the story begins. Additionally, clearing all missions unlocks various special features and items that can be carried over to the full game.

Toukiden: Kiwami launches on March 27 in Europe and March 31 in North America.
