Touhou Azure Reflections

Touhou Project shoot ’em up Touhou Azure Reflections will launch for Switch via the Nintendo eShop on August 30 in Japan, publisher Unties and developer Souvenir Circ. announced.

Touhou Azure Reflections first launched for PlayStation 4 in Japan in January, followed by the west in May.

Here is an overview of the game, via Unties:

Dominate levels and relentlessly attack enemies with a variety of skills and upgrades. All three playable characters Reimu, Marisa, and Cirno have heavy hitting spell cards, bullet-absorbing barriers, and a powerful body slam. Azure Reflections puts a spin on the traditional Touhou vertical shooter, boasting intense shoot’em up action from a horizontal perspective.

Work towards the high score by blitzing down hordes of enemies and showing off just what the girls are capable of in competitive online leaderboards.

Show off the girls’ fashion sense by collecting tokens to accessorize them with and prepare for battle. Accessories are fashionable and functional, improving loadouts with auto-fire, drop rate increases, halved stun time, and more.

Famous doujin artists from Croixleur Sigma have crafted a cute and colorful, but troubled world with Touhou Project fan favorites Reimu and Marisa. The Ordinary Magician Marisa, Hakurei Shrine’s Maiden Reimu, and The Little Ice Fairy Cirno now must reunite to uncover a familiar evil from Scarlet Devil Manor and protect Gensokyo in this whimsical journey. Azure Reflections’ story branches based on performance against adorably ruthless bosses.

Thanks, Famitsu.
