NIS America is bringing Touhou Project game Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle physically and digitally to PlayStation 4 and digitally to PS Vita in North America and Europe this summer, the company announced at its 2017 press event.
A PlayStation 4 limited edition is available for pre-order via the NIS America Store for $49.99, and includes a copy of the game, hardcover art book, one-disc original soundtrack, set of nine magnets, and collector’s box with new, exclusive art.
Originally launched as a digital-only title in Japan on November 2, 2016, Touhou Kobuto V is one-on-one 3D fighting action game where players battle it out in 3D spaces, hitting opponents with barrages of bullets and melee attacks to achieve victory. In addition to versatile controls based on button combinations, linked attacks born through “Cancels” will provide even greater variety.
