DMM GAMES’ Touken Ranbu Warriors upcoming action game revealed a brand new trailer giving us a more detailed preview of its game systems. The trailer also revealed the theme song written by Akiko Shikata, the same composer who wrote for the original Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- browser game.
▍Easily Switch Between Easy and Normal Modes!
In order to best accommodate both players that are new to action games and experienced players, an Easy Mode will be added to the game’s controls. By enabling it, one single button is used for automatically attacking and dodging. But the normal controls for a more traditional musou experience is also available. You can change it from the menu at any time.
If you’re not too used or get lost as to where you need to go next, you can also rely on Konnosuke’s guidance. By pressing the assigned button, he will appear and help you get to your destination.
Upon selecting who to go on combat, you can also choose another Touken Danshi to accompany as a Partner. This will not only deepen their bonds with each other, but together, Partners can perform special attack combos.
To reflect the current HP state of your Touken Danshi, when they reach a certain point, their clothes will be ripped apart, creating a “Wounded” status similar to the browser game. In this situation, their Special gauge fills more quickly, but in the trailer, Konnosuke advises against using this as a viable fighting method.
▍Interact with your Touken Danshi At Your Honmaru!
After battle, you and your Danshi will return to the honmaru, a sort of headquarter where the Touken Danshi can rest. In here, Touken Danshi can be upgraded, items can be purchased from the shop, and you can also watch interactions from each of the Touken Danshi.
When Touken Danshi embark upon missions together or are placed in the same location within the Honmaru, their bonds will deepen, which will trigger special conversations between them.
From time to time, when placing certain Touken Danshi in locations across the honmaru, minigames will occur! These minigames will award you with resources if you can successfully clear them.
And of course, inside the honmaru is where you’ll find everything you need in order to upgrade or make the necessary arrangements to make sure your Touken Danshi are in tip-top shape.
▍Complete Missions To Get a Special Illustration!
As you complete different achievements in the game, you’ll earn a special piece that will form an exclusive illustration. There are 48 pieces in total. Do your best and collect them all!
▍Record Your Best Moments With Photo Mode!
At any time during combat, or inside your honmaru, you can snap a photo of your Touken Danshi and save it as a capture image on your device to share to social media.
▍About Touken Ranbu Warriors
Touken Ranbu Warriors features 15 characters from Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-, where famous swords take the form of warriors named Touken Danshi (swordsmen), and the elite fighters are sworn to protect history.

Can the Touken Danshi heroes restore order while restoring the original timeline? The fierce but beautiful battles of the Touken Danshi are finally a reality!
