■ About Touhou Genso Wanderer

“A dungeon exploration RPG that combines completionist elements with exceptional ease of play.”

Touhou Genso Wanderer is a “dungeon exploration RPG” and Touhou Project (doujin game property) fan game where the layout of the dungeon and dropped items change each time you play. As a dungeon exploration RPG, it is very addictive in that you will want to play many times over, and it has tons of completionist elements outside of the main game. It also has simple controls and easy-to-understand gameplay systems, allowing anyone to enjoy the game, from beginners to advanced players.

Touhou‘s Quirky Cast of Characters

Touhou Project (fan game property) has over 120 characters, and every character that appeared from Touhou Koumakyou and on will appear in this game. The unique abilities and traits that appeared in the original work will be perfectly reproduced to match the style of this game, and story parts are fully voiced.

■ The World of Lotus Labyrinth

“Battle with a party of tons of characters.”

Over 50 partner characters will appear in this game, far exceeding the 10 characters (including downloadable content) that appeared in Touhou Genso Wanderer Reloaded. There is no limit to the number of characters you can take into the dungeon in Lotus Labyrinth, so lead your favorites inside to clear the challenge. Also, each character will learn various skills as they grow, and every party member can be strengthened. Unique personalities equal to the number of potential party members and completionist elements are a couple of the key features of Lotus Labyrinth.

■ Two Protagonists

In Lotus Labyrinth, you can choose between player characters Sanae Kochiya and Hinanawi Tenshi to be the protagonist. The story plays out from that protagonist’s perspective, and the party members you can gather and dungeons you can explore will differ. Experience two stories that revolve around the “Lotus Labyrinth” that exists in a digital world.
