Toukiden 2 is an open-world demon-hunting RPG most similar to the Monster Hunter series. As you might expect from that comparison alone this means tracking down giant monsters, smacking them around with a wide variety of completely ridiculous weapons, and then using their most spiky bits in order to create even greater weapons and armor.

If this sounds like something you might enjoy you'll be glad to hear that Toukiden 2 has now officially released for the PC and consoles. Here's the launch trailer to hopefully give you a good idea of what Toukiden 2 is really all about:

I haven't had the time to play it myself, so take the following with a grain of salt, but apparently its a pretty damn good competitor to Monster Hunter, and a rather charming game in its own right. Unfortunately there is one bit of bad news that might ruin Toukiden 2 for you, and that is the simple fact that it features absolutely no mouse support. I have no idea why the developers decided to dump all of the controls onto the keyboard, but thankfully you can just plug in a controller and bypass all of the potential issues that way.

To learn more about Toukiden 2, or just grabbing yourself a copy, you should head over to either Steam or the official website. And finally, allow me to send you off with a couple of demon-filled images:
