Toukiden 2 brings more monster-hunting to PC

Hack 'n' slash from Omega Force

Omega Force are back with more Monster Hunter-ish action in Toukiden 2 [official site], released today. It's an open-world hack 'n' slash action-RPG set in a Japanese medieval fantasy world, where players need to roam around around murdering giant demons by hacking off bodyparts. It's the small pleasures in life. Here, have a peek in this trailer:

For those who'd rather see action, Koei Tecmo have whipped together short weapon showcase gameplay videos for the chain whip, sword and shield, knives, sword, spear, rifle, and naginata.

Toukiden is out on Windows through Steam for £44.99/53,99€/$53.99, which includes a 10% launch discount for the first week. Five small bits of DLC will be free to folks who nab it within the first month. The first Toukiden's PC port was a bit wonky and this release is so fresh there aren't enough impressions out there for me to relay whether this is much better.

I have heard good things about the first Toukiden but, right now, it's the open-world hack 'n' slash action of Nier: Automata that has my heart. Toukiden 2 does have online co-op for up to four monster hunters, mind, and co-op counts for a lot.
