PRESS RELEASE


XSEED GAMES SATES CURIOUS FANS WITH A LAUNCH DATE FOR
TOUHOU: SCARLET CURIOSITY

Upcoming Action RPG Inspired by the Long-Running ‘Touhou’ Series Launches in North America Exclusively for PlayStation®4 on September 20

Torrance, Calif. — September 1, 2016 — XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that their upcoming bullet hell-inspired action RPG, Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity, will launch exclusively for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system in North America on September 20. A fan-made indie title that originally debuted on PC as a Japanese release, Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity will support a full 1080p native resolution running at 60 frames-per second for its PS4™ premier. The game will be available digitally on the North American PlayStation®Store for $19.99.

Set in the ever-evolving Touhou Project universe, Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity trades in the series’ top-down “bullet hell” roots for an action RPG approach, drawing inspiration from series such as Ys while still retaining a distinctly indie feel. In a standalone story that draws upon the series’ 20 years of lore to characterize its two playable protagonists, players take on the role of the titular vampire Remilia Scarlet or her devoted maid, Sakuya Izayoi, as they explore a wide variety of environments and battle aggressive creatures. Fast-paced combat and the series’ trademark complex patterns and waves of projectiles will keep players on their toes as they fight to retake Scarlet’s manor!

Immortality can be boring. At 500 years old, the so-called “Scarlet Devil,” Remilia Scarlet, is desperately searching for something new to end the monotony. After stumbling upon a newspaper article about a powerful and mysterious monster terrorizing the countryside, she rushes out to see if this could finally be the excitement for which she yearns. Unfortunately, not only is she unsuccessful in her search for the monster, but she returns to find her manor in ruins. It would seem the monster has come to her! With a renewed sense of determination (and a much-needed respite from her boredom), she vows to take revenge on this fiend and make it pay!

Developed by Ankake Spa and published in North America by XSEED Games, Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity will be available digitally on the PlayStation®Store for PS4™ on September 20 for $19.99. This title has been rated “Teen” by the ESRB. More information on the European digital release will be released shortly.

  • Hiecchi

    No infos about a europe release?

    • DizzyGear

      Or the original PC version for that matter. Seems like a no brainer to me.

    • Crystal Colwell
