"Toukiden: Kiwami is a terrific value for the monster hunter in each of us, but it's certainly no weekend rental..."
Suffering from a mild case of burnout, I told myself it was time to find shorter and less demanding games to play while I recovered. Doing so would also allow me to write more reviews, which was desirable since I've spent months barely covering anything at all. I was pleased with my new resolution.
Then, like an idiot, I read a little bit about Toukiden: Kiwami and said to myself "Hey, that'll suit my needs perfectly!"
In hindsight, I can see that I didn't do nearly enough research. Toukiden: Kiwami is actually two games in one, and neither of those two games are short. Toukiden: Age of Demons released on Vita last year and Mike Suskie reviewed it for this very site. He said at the time that you could get to the end in just under 30 hours with focused play, and he's right. I say that with confidence because (as far as I can tell) the entirety of that game is reproduced here. There's even talk on the title menu of exporting your save, a feature I wasn't able to take advantage of myself.
