XSEED Games has released another fantastic fan made game for the Touhou franchise, Touhou: New World. In this Action RPG with some Bullet Hell gameplay thrown in for good measure you will take on the role of Reimu Hakurei or the sorceress Marisa Kirisame as they try to save Gensokyo from disaster. This game comes to us from developer Ankake, you may know them from their previous title Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity.


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.
