The game launched in January 2015. The game’s popularity made it possible to get an anime adaptation, a compilation film, a live-action film, a series of stage musicals and plays, a manga, and the upcoming film trilogy.

In April 2021, the browser game Touken Ranbu was released in English by Johren. A smartphone version of the game was released in August 2021.
