Koei Tecmo describes the game:
In Touken Ranbu Warriors, famous swords take the form of warriors named Touken Danshi (swordsmen), and these elite fighters are sworn to protect history from an onslaught of evildoers. This all-new experience promises to combine the Touken training of the Touken Ranbu -ONLINE- simulation game with the breathtakingmusou action of KOEI TECMO’s WARRIORS series, delivering must-play 1 vs. 1,000 combat.
