Two Touhou titles are coming to North America next year.

News by Mike Williams, .

NIS America has announced that Touhou Genso Wanderer will be launching on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in North America on February 7. The game will be released physically and digitally on PlayStation 4, while the Vita version will be digital only.

All physical copies of Touhou Genso Wanderer at launch will include Touhou Double Focus, a 2D platformer. Touhou Double Focus can also be purchased as a separate digital download on PS4 and Vita.

For those players unfamiliar with the Touhou Project, it's a series of bullet hell shooters by single developer ZUN. Touhou Genso Wanderer is developed by Aqua Style, set in the Touhou Project universe. Here some detail on each title.

Touhou Genso Wanderer: Touhou Genso Wanderer is a roguelike RPG set within the expansive Touhou Project which invites the player to play as Reimu, the Hakurei Shrine Maiden, to investigate the latest incident to take place in the world of Gensokyo. Along the way, you'll encounter a variety of characters from the Touhou Project universe, discover mountains of loot-each piece of which is valuable thanks to the game's item fusion system-and test your mettle with your favorite Touhou girl in tow as your adventuring partner in this approachable take on the roguelike genre.

Touhou Double Focus: After getting sucked into a magical book, Aya and Momiji must find their way back home. Explore every nook and cranny to unravel the mystery of the Book World! Along the way, the two run into many other residents of Gensokyo. Some come asking for help while others blame Aya for causing the incident. Help or defeat everyone you meet to give Aya her biggest story yet!

There will also be a limited edition for the North American release. That edition is available for pre-order on the NIS America Online Store and includes:

    It is so fascinating what does and doesn't get localized anymore.

    In what world can this be localized, but the Phoenix Wright game actually set in a western country not be?

    (the answer is obviously, this one)

    I've only just heard of the Touhou series - looks interesting. Will keep an eye on it. Hopefully it'll hit Europe too...

    This is better than Criminal Girls, but I hope we are nearing the end of the moe-pidemic. Anyway, western otaku have access to MUGEN and can laser-spam to their heart's content in a free fighting game system.Edited October 2016 by jihon83
