XSEED Games has announced that Touhou: New World will release digitally on Nintendo Switch in the coming months.

Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity creator Ankake Spa is the developer behind this “exciting fan-made entry in the ever-evolving Touhou Project universe.”

The game will return you to Gensokyo, a supernatural world that both humans and spirits known as youkai call home. Life for its residents was relatively uneventful until the mystical barrier that protects it is breached by an outsider harbouring an obsession with the supernatural realm.

Bringing chaos to both Gensokyo and the world beyond, it is up to the shrine maiden Reimu and her magician friend Marisa to uncover the true source of the chaos and restore peace to both worlds.

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

Shrine Maiden Skills and Magician Moves: Enemies may unleash fountains of projectiles, but they can be countered by inflicting heavy damage with spell cards, dealing powerful blows with exorcism sticks, and slowing attacks with well-timed guards.

Get to Know Gensokyo: Help friendly Gensokyo residents by finding lost souls, investigating strange areas, and engaging in mock battles. Players will be rewarded handsomely, and they might learn a tip or two to aid them in their quest.

Customizable Action: Reimu and Marisa can be customized to suit nearly any playstyle. Their skills can be leveled up through use in battle, upgrading essential stats like health and attack power to help them overcome the odds.

Don’t Forget to Accessorize: Every weapon, piece of armor, and accessory found has randomized stats, so mix and match to make the most of them or reforge equipment to get the perfect combination.

Touhou: New World will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Summer 2023.
