NIS America have announced that they are localising another Touhou fangame. This time it’s Touhou: Genso Wanderer (known in Japan as Mystery Gensokyo: The Tower of Desire). The game will be released both physically and digitally on both PS4 and PS Vita early next year.

This game is a roguelike RPG, where the Shrine Maiden of Hakurei, Reimu, is tasked with investigating an incident taking place within the world of Gensokyo. Along the way Reimu will meet many Touhou characters, alongside original character Futo Mononobe.

Here is what NIS America had to say on the subject.

About the Game

In this roguelike RPG, you will take control of 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.

About the Story

One day, Reimu Hakurei is visiting Rinnosuke Morichika at his shop, Kourindo. He shows her one of his prized possessions, the golden sphere. However, when she touches it, it unleashes a mysterious beam of light. Rinnosuke starts acting strange, and a giant tower now stands where Kourindo used to be. The population of Gensokyo has also been replicated by clones who attack people on sight. As the Hakurei Shrine Maiden, it is Reimu’s duty to resolve this latest incident and bring peace back to Gensokyo.

Along the way, she is joined by Futo Mononobe, who has recently set out on a quest to become a first class sage. With her partner in tow, can Reimu make her way through the dungeons of the tower and put an end to this incident?

Touhou: Genso Wanderer will be releasing in the West early next year. There are some attached screenshots in the gallery below.
