Touken Ranbu Warriors Review :
Welcome to the game review this is often more of an informational Post about all or any more details of the Touken Ranbu Warriors review and what we all know so far.
Touken Ranbu Warriors Story
Touken Ranbu Warriors is best suited for gamers new to the Dynasty Warriors series in general. Suppose this is intended to appeal mostly to fans of free-to-play games – who have significantly lower expectations for action games – like a big slice of Touken Danshi fan service. In that case, it will be a terrific addition to their library. This is a much tougher sell for anyone unfamiliar with the universe of Touken Ranbu, presenting a mechanical, repetitive game loop that does little to quench your hunger for a more meaningful, growing game experience.
Touken Ranbu Warriors Gameplay & Combat
Touken Ranbu’s heroes are appointed by the ‘Government of Time’ to protect history from the game’s antagonists, the ‘History Retrograde Army,’ whose mission it is to… well, alter history, which is an ironic plot device given Japan’s own tendencies to retcon its history books to suit a preferred narrative. Aside from real-world political hypocrisy, the Government of Time awakens the game’s heroes, the Touken Danshi, to stop this ridiculously named army from changing the course of history. The Touken Danshi are divided into five groups. The first team has three characters, the second has four, the third and fourth have three symbols each, and the fifth has two.
Each team leader is a personified portrayal of a historical Japanese katana from different periods in Japan’s history. This time-traveling fantasy-based framework gives Omega Force/Ruby Party more freedom to experiment with the Musou formula than a normal Dynasty Warriors game could. Still, sadly, this blank canvas is not put to good use.
Touken Ranbu Warriors Characters
While we’ve all seen the Musou template ruthlessly applied to franchises as diverse and, at times, mismatched as Gundam, Fist of the North Star, Berserk, Warriors Orochi, The Legend of Zelda, One Piece, Fire Emblem, Dragon Quest, and Persona, Touken Ranbu Warriors sticks close to the default Warriors-style of gameplay. While the controls differ from Dynasty Warriors, especially in Easy Mode, which reduces the game to a mere button-masher, the game eliminates ranged strikes in favor of normal, strong, and evasive moves. This is intended to simplify things for more casual gamers who want to continue their experience from the browser-based CCG. Still, it also gives Touken Ranbu Warriors a more approachable starting point for younger gamers.
Touken Ranbu Warriors Review: At the very least, the foes in the Dynasty Warriors series benefit from being historically relevant, providing real heroes, opposing ideas, and perspectives to sink your teeth into. However, Touken Ranbu’s adversaries are far less identifiable than the Yellow Turban Army. There are continuous waves of simple, floating insect-like invaders here, often accompanied by surly, green humanoid adversaries. They begin human-sized and gradually grow in size until you face larger, behemoth variations.
Touken Ranbu Warriors Graphics & Visuals
This is a visually appealing title. It won’t win any awards for cutting-edge visuals, but the tried-and-true Musou engine is put to excellent use here, with plenty of sakura flowers on display and a mainly bright and colorful look. Each character’s destructible attire is the game’s most distinctive visual element. You’ll see a brief cinematic of your character moving in slow motion as their clothes rip if you take enough damage. This may appeal to the most ardent gamers, but it has minimal effect on the game.
Touken Ranbu Warriors has a lot of stuff for individuals interested in the lore. However, there is nothing to differentiate the game’s time-traveling components. You are mostly stuck on old Japanese battlefields, with just between-level loading screens indicating when you are in the future.
Touken Ranbu Warriors Release Date
Touken Ranbu Warriors for Switch will be released on May 24, 2022, in North America and Europe by Koei Tecmo. Koei Tecmo will bring the English localization to the PC version, only available on the Japanese DMM Game Player platform.
