XSEED Games has announced recently that the bullet hell-inspired action RPG, Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity, is now available in Europe. The game can be purchased digitally on PSN for €19.99, £15.99, and AUD $29.95 for the PlayStation 4.
Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity features a standalone story that draws upon the renowned franchise’s 20 years of lore to characterize its two playable protagonists, while providing an excellent jumping-in point for series newcomers looking for a fresh adventure. Players can take on one of two distinct roles – either the titular vampire Remilia Scarlet or her devoted maid, Sakuya Izayoi – as they explore a wide variety of environments, navigate tricky platforming, and battle intense boss characters, who fill the screen with complex waves of projectiles in a manner worthy of the renowned Touhou ‘king of bullet hell’ name.
Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity begins with the so-called “Scarlet Devil” Remilia Scarlet, who, at 500 years old, is desperately searching for something new to end the monotony of immortality. 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!
