I’m enjoying the love that PlayStation has with Japanese games being brought to the west right now. Now, is a good time. There is a new generation of gamers such as myself that have crazy love for anime and japanese culture that are marking out on games coming like todays news of Touhou Genso Wanderer. Enjoy the press release, screens and trailer sent to me by NIS America.



NIS America is happy to announce that Touhou Genso Wanderer, a roguelike set within the expansive Touhou Project universe, will be gracing Western shores in early 2017. Touhou Genso Wanderer (released in Japan as Fushigi no Gensokyo: The Tower of Desire) will be available for the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Vita as both a physical and digital release in North America and Europe early next year.


About the Game: In this roguelike RPG, you will take control of Reimu, the Hakurei Shrine Maiden, to investigate the latest incident to take place in the world of Gensokyo. Along the way, you’ll encounter a variety of characters from the Touhou Project universe, discover mountains of loot—each piece of which is valuable thanks to the game’s item fusion system—and test your mettle with your favorite Touhou girl in tow as your adventuring partner in this approachable take on the roguelike genre.


About the Story: One day, Reimu Hakurei is visiting Rinnosuke Morichika at his shop, Kourindo. He shows her one of his prized possessions, the golden sphere. However, when she touches it, it unleashes a mysterious beam of light. Rinnosuke starts acting strange, and a giant tower now stands where Kourindo used to be. The population of Gensokyo has also been replicated by clones who attack people on sight. As the Hakurei Shrine Maiden, it is Reimu’s duty to resolve this latest incident and bring peace back to Gensokyo. Along the way, she is joined by Futo Mononobe, who has recently set out on a quest to become a first class sage. With her partner in tow, can Reimu make her way through the dungeons of the tower and put an end to this incident?
