Several websites have reported that the English version for Nitroplus and DMM Games’ Touken Ranbu Online game was supposed to be released last February 23, 2021. Unfortunately, it seems that the game itself may be released later than expected. The English version’s official Twitter account has confirmed that it isn’t launching yet.
Regarding the release of “Touken Ranbu -ONLINE-” English version, some websites have informed that the release schedule on Johren would be on February 23. However, due to some development issues, the release will be postponed.#ToukenRanbu

The Twitter page stated that the official English version is now postponed “due to some development issues”. In a separate Tweet, the staff issued an apology to fans for the inconvenience. They also stated that they will be announcing a new release date in the days to come.
Sorry girls, no English Touken Ranbu for you yet.
Johren is releasing the game in English, and here is how they describe it:
Revisionists seeking to change history have begun to attack the past. To prevent such threats, the Chronos Ministry has sent Saniwa to each age. Saniwa, with the power to arouse an objects’ hearts and emotions, could bestow powers to fight and wield themselves. Thus, created as the Tsukumogami, Saniwa flies in the past with Touken Danshi to maintain the true history. The players become the Saniwa, and will materialize the Touken Danshi, the famous swords taken the forms of honorable warriors. Gather eight types of Touken — Tanto, Wakizashi, Uchigatana, Tachi, Otachi, Naginata, Yari and Tsurugi. Create your own unique battalion and prevent the history revisionists from changing the past. Touken Ranbu Online is a collect-and-raise simulation game featuring Touken Danshi, the historical swords. Don’t miss the conversations between Touken Danshi, too! Head into battle with Touken Danshi at your side!
