Touhou 14: Double Dealing Character

Touhou 14 now available via Playism Japan

But is an official localization on the horizon?

Touhou Kishinjou: Double Dealing Character is now available for Windows PC via Playism Japan.

Initially released last summer at Comiket 84, Double Dealing Character is the fourteenth official entry in the Touhou Project, a prolific series of doujin bullet hell shooters with a passionate cult following.

Despite its popularity, Touhou's creator Jun'ya "Zun" Ota has been reticent to commercialize or distribute the series outside of Japan, making this digital release via Playism a significant deviation in behavior.

Speaking with Siliconera, Playism marketing manager Nayan Ramachandran said getting Zun to agree to the deal was a matter of persistence more than anything. As for a localized release via Playism's western storefront, Ramachandran asserted he could "neither confirm nor deny an English version.”

I bet we see one sooner or later.

Seems rather excessive for a 3ds game. (3ds xl for scale) [img]http://i.imgur.com/DwOtP0s.jpg?1[/img]

Tried the stealth approach for awhile, time to switch things up. *plants C4 everywhere* I'll probably toss one on the poor schmuck that delivers my copy of MGS V. For taking so long.

So the 3DS Dragon Quest VII remake is coming to mobile in Japan, so there's a chance that version will get ported over here. Not ideal but if we get it at all I'll be happy!

Put down the deposit for my new car, will probably be able to pick it up on the weekend. Insurance is pretty good too, sub £1000 which is excellent. Kinda. My mum tried to reverse in 5th gear. She drives an automatic. What a noob. :P

Still waiting by the mailbox. Tranq'd a jogger and stuffed them into a locker just for fun. I keep throwing rocks to get the attention of the neighbors and then hiding in tall grass. They look noticeably upset. Probably because I kept them up all night.

Metal Gear or Mad Max? The choice is obvious. [IMG]http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b321/Felth/obvious%20choice.jpg~original[/IMG]

Xbone journey continues! I thought I would like Dead Rising 3 well enough as a huge fan of 1/2, but I must say I find it's emphasis on hard drama laughable and the game fundamentally disingenuine. Guess I'm moving on to Forza Horizon 2.

I dig the feature in Until Dawn where, if you have the Playstation camera, it will record you briefly during jump scares for you to watch later. It's a really neat use of an underused peripheral. Too bad I'm dead inside and never react to them.

Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.

OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.
