Western video game publisher Nippon Ichi Software America have a couple Touhou video games under their belt, including Touhou Genso Wanderer (Slated for release next month) and Touhou Genso Rondo: Bullet Ballet (Now available). But they are continuing to build upon the range of games they plan to offer, and have announced they now hold rights to CUBETYPE’s Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle.
Touhou Kubuto V: Burst Battle is set to be a bullet-hell game featuring nine Touhou characters. In this game, you must eliminate your opponent using a combination of bullet-hell patterns, melee attacks and spell cards. Some promoted features of this title include:
Return to the World of Touhou – Jump back into the world of Touhou and play as some of your favorite characters in a brand-new 3D square arena.
High-flying Combat – Outwit your opponent by taking your bullet-hell battles to the sky! Perform dashes, double-jumps, and mid-air dashes to avoid bullets and demoralize your opponent!
Climb the Rankings – Compete at home with friends, or online against everyone to climb the rankings and become the ultimate Touhou fighter!
Nippon Ichi Software America will be releasing Touhou Kubuto V: Burst Battle on the PlayStation 4 (w/ PlayStation VR support) and PlayStation Vita sometime in Summer 2017. While the PS4 version will be available both physically and digital, the PS Vita edition will only be available for purchase digitally.
