The wait is over! The English version of the awaited Joseimuke game, Touken Ranbu Online releases today!
Tokyo, Japan (April 27, 2021)— The PC gaming platform, Johren, announced that the English language version of the popular Japanese sword raising simulation game, Touken Ranbu Online, will launch both on their PC and Android platforms via direct download from the Johren marketplace today. This will be the first time this fan-favorite “joseimuke” game will see an English language version since the property’s original release back in 2015.
Touken Ranbu Online is an online, free-to-play, turn-based, sword-raising simulation game that centers around a sage who must battle an evil entity trying to alter history with the help of anthropomorphized swords that transform into heroic, sword-wielding men.
It has been dubbed a “Joseimuke” game after it created a sensation in Japan due to its rabid fanbase of women who were drawn to the “Saniwa” (the game’s protagonist), fascinated by the Japanese history, and enticed by the beautiful male characters. It now promises to make waves in the English-speaking gaming community.
The original Japanese version was released in 2015 and built an impressive fanbase of 1.5 million within a year. With this latest version, Johren is seeking to build on its already expansive number of users.
Since the initial announcement last January, Johren saw a record number of pre-registrations from excited players of Touken Ranbu Online worldwide.
