PlayStation games Toukiden 2, Nights of Azure 2, Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey, and Samurai Warriors: Sanada Maru are all coming West in 2017, Koei Tecmo announced today. Both Atelier Firis and Samurai Warriors were confirmed for PlayStation 4, but Toukiden 2’s and Nights of Azure 2’s platforms in the West weren’t mentioned.
Here’s what Koei Tecmo said about the four games:
Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey (PS4; 2017)
Developer GUST continues its trademark Atelier series with the follow-up to Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Book. The second part in the Mysterious trilogy, Atelier Firis, follows the journey of a young alchemist through an exciting and colorful world. While Firis travels, she learns more about synthesis and alchemy, meets interesting people, and amplifies the feeling of exploration with the immense expansion of the world map! Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey will be playable during Tokyo Games Show on PlayStation 4. More details on the title will be revealed in the following weeks.
Nights of Azure 2 (Working Title; Platforms TBA; 2017)
Following the success of Nights of Azure, which marked a darker direction for GUST, producer Keisuke Kikuchi returns to the demon-plagued world where players will follow the story of a young girl knight born from the blood of Arnice, the main character of Nights of Azure. Nights of Azure 2 (working title) maintains the same JRPG gameplay elements adored by dedicated fans of the studio and expands this new franchise’s horizons with a riveting new storyline!
Samurai Warriors: Sanada Maru (Working Title; PS4; 2017)
KOEI TECMO America and developer Omega Force are proud to announce the upcoming western release of a ‘one versus thousands’ tactical action title focused on a fan-favorite character from the Samurai Warriors franchise: Yukimura Sanada. In this character-driven epic, players will get a unique look into the Sanada clan’s inner workings before and during the 16th century conflict that drove two brothers to join opposite sides of a grand scale civil war. This yet-to-be-named title will be released in the west in 2017 and is available for hands-on play on PlayStation 4 during Tokyo Games Show.
Toukiden 2 (Platforms TBA; 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 take on 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 to prey on mankind. Warriors from the ancient and 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.
Koei Tecmo also revealed that their Tokyo Game Show 2016 lineup includes Berserk and Nioh, in addition to the above titles.
