Toji no Miko – Mobile game for upcoming TV anime series announced

Last month, a new anime series known as Toji no Miko was announced and it is scheduled to be aired next January. It will be directed by Koudai Kakimoto, written by Tatsuya Takahashi, and characters drawn by Shizuma Yoshinori (of KanColle fame). With such a talented backstage cast, it was only natural Toji no Miko has a mobile game announced at Tokyo Game Show.

Once again, Square Enix is the mastermind behind this mobile adventure. Each of the miko (or priestess) in the anime and game are guardians of various ancient swords which are used to slay evil creatures known as Aratama. They are recognized by the fictional government, and come from 5 different training schools. There is also an annual tournament between them each spring!

The mobile game’s full title is Toji no Miko: Kizamishi Issen no Tomoshibi, which is definitely very wordy. Square Enix confirmed there will be an game-exclusive new character for each school (for a total of 5). If you noticed, there is nothing about the gameplay yet, and that would have to wait till tomorrow when Square Enix reveals more detail during a special livestream. Stay tuned!
