Tecmo Koei America has recently announced the release of a demo for their upcoming PlayStation Vita game Toukiden: The Age of Demons.  While the game itself will be released on February 11th, 2014, the demo will introduce players to the game's first chapter and part of the second.  The demo will also include full access to character customization and all six weapon types and equipment upgrades.  In addition, players can take their demo progress over to the full version, including equipment, obtained weapons/armor/mitama, materials, story progress, and part of their Haku (in-game currency).  Sadly I don't have a Vita to experience the demo, but if you're looking forward to the game, give the demo a shot.

Summary

Set against a backdrop inspired by various historical periods of Japan, TOUKIDEN: THE AGE OF DEMONS tells the tale of humanity’s last stand for survival. When monstrous demons (Oni) of varying strength and size invaded the world through cracks in space and time and started attacking humans, the only opposition came from the Slayers; a caste that has always secretly protected mankind from their murderous intent.

Eight years after time warped and Oni appeared, a brave young Slayer embarks on a journey to thin the numbers of the enemy and help humanity survive. Players take the role of this young warrior and can fully customise their characters, weapons and armour and form a group of hunters to take down the destructive Oni.
