NISA Localizing Touhou Genso Rondo
Touhou project games began life as a series of 2D vertical scrolling shooters, but have evolved into larger games including several fighting games from Twilight Frontier, and now from CubeType comes a new take on the shoot'em up with 1v1 arcade shooter aciton, Touhou Genso Rondo.
The game is a remake of an earlier PC title, remastered especially for the PS4. NIS America is localizing the game for fans in the west.
Many people may be unaware of the Touhou Project. This is a series of 2D bullet hell shooters made by a single person team called Team Shanghai Alice. The games take place in the fictional realm of Gensokyo (literally Illusion/Fantasy Village), and feature a variety of characters, all female, fighting aainst Yokai (super natural Beings) to protect their realm.
The primary character is Reimu Hakurei a shrine maiden who manages the border to Gensokyo and fights against problematic Yokai. Nine additional characters such as Alice Margatroid join Reimu in protecting Gensokyo from rampaging Yokai.
Touhou Project was actually awarded a Guiness world record for being the most prolific fan made game series. In addition to those original games, the characters and setting have made the transition to more commercial games by developers such as Twilight Froniter. However the games always feature Reimu and her friends fighting to protect their home against the Yokai.
