  • If you own Touhou Genso Rondo on PS4, you will be able to play online multiplayer matches using Touhou Koubuto V without having to change software.
  • PlayStation VR support will be added to the PS4 version later on via an update. Features include head tracking, with a view similar to the standard mode allowing the player to see their character from a distance.
  • A free theme will be included with all purchases, the theme you get depends on what platform it’s purchased on.
  • The game costs 3,000 yen. There is no cros-save, however you can get the other version of the game at a 1,000 yen discount.
