XSEED Games Releases Fan-made Action-RPG and Bullet-hell Hybrid Touhou: New World on PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5

Marisa and Reimu Team Up to Save Gensokyo’s Human and Youkai Residents in a Magical, Genre-blending Adventure


XSEED Games today announced that Touhou: New World has launched digitally in North America and Europe for PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5 for $24.99/€24.99/£19.99, with a 10% launch discount on both versions exclusive to PlayStation®Plus members through Oct. 2. Touhou: New World is a fan-made title from developer Ankake Spa that builds upon their initial release of Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity with a new story and a more refined combination of action-RPG and the series core bullet-hell gameplay. The PlayStation versions will also feature a new “Bullet Hell” difficulty that ups the game’s intensity in several categories, as well as other improvements previously added to the PC version. These features are also now available via a free update to the Nintendo Switch™ system version.

Touhou: New World returns players to Gensokyo, a supernatural world that both humans and the spirits known as youkai call home. While far from idyllic, life for residents is relatively uneventful; that is until the mystical barrier protecting it is breached by an outsider harboring an obsession with the supernatural realm, bringing chaos to both Gensokyo and the world beyond. It’s up to shrine maiden Reimu and her magician friend Marisa to uncover the true source of the chaos and restore peace to both worlds, dodging magical bullet barrages and battling a menagerie of mystical creatures along the way!


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.

Developed by Ankake Spa and published in North America and Europe by XSEED Games, Touhou: New World launched digitally on PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5 on Sept. 12 for a MSRP of $24.99/€24.99/£19.99. The title was previously released for Nintendo Switch™ system and on Windows PC via Steam on July 13 for a MSRP of $24.99/€24.99/£19.99 as a standard edition, and $34.77/€34.77/£27.81 for the Digital Deluxe edition on PC. The Digital Deluxe edition contents are also sold separately on PC and priced at $9.99/€9.99/£7.99 for the soundtrack and $4.99/€4.99/£3.99 for the digital artbook. The game is rated  “E10+” for everyone ages 10 and up by the ESRB on consoles; the PC release has not been rated.
