Monster-Hunting Action-RPG Toukiden: Kiwami Due On PC

Smash demons

It seems jolly unlikely that Capcom will bring their Monster Hunter series to PC any time soon, but if you really want to hunt giant nasty things and beat them up in half-hour boss battles, Koei Tecmo will let you have a crack at their knock-off.

Toukiden: Kiwami [official site], an action-RPG about hunting and murdering giant demons, is coming to PC via Steam on June 26th. It's all a bit Monster Hunter-y but I hear it's not as good as Monster Hunter but you do get to fight giant demons and it does support co-op and that doesn't sound half-bad.
