Touhou Genso Rondo Bullet Ballet has launched on the PlayStation 4 today providing a mix of ballet, MMA, magical girls, and bullet hell.
Check out the trailer below to learn more about the characters you can expect to play and meet during gameplay. Jordan Vincent Senior Product Marketing Manager at NIS AmericaExplains a little more about what you can expect from this unique game.
Okay, so that’s a lot of news about a game that’s been flying a bit under the radar, so lemme give you a quick primer! Touhou Genso Rondo is basically a mashup of your typical 1-on-1 fighting game with the signature bullet-hell excitement of the Touhou Project.
You’ll find all the standard modes you’re used to in fighting games, including Story, Arcade, and Boss Rush, along with local and online versus modes. Each fight will see you dancing between a beautiful-yet-deadly array of projectiles as you answer in kind in an effort to be the last one left standing when the air clears. A picture is worth a thousand words though, so check out our trailer for a thousand-thousand words worth of info!
You’ll be duking it out against your friends or the CPU with some of the coolest characters of the Touhou Project – a massive universe that encompasses more than a hundred characters, each with a unique and interesting backstory and personal music.
The original world of Touhou was created by ZUN, a one-man dev team who has handled the game design, scenario writing, programming, character design, and music production for over 15 entries into the universe. Though he originally created Touhou back in 1996 as a way to create his own game music, the series has become a bit of a phenomenon thanks to the Play Doujin! scene that has grown around it and fostered a plethora of fan-developed games like Touhou Genso Rondo.
