Doujin shooter Touhou 14 targets western release


And Playism aims for our hearts

Japanese indie games distributor Playism scored the rights to one of the Touhou titles last year, putting us one step closer to a possible English-language adaptation of the popular doujin series. That was the speculation, anyway. And indeed, it's happening: the bullet hell shooter Touhou 14: Double Dealing Character will see a localized release on Playism EN "sooner than you think."

With such a vast, varied catalog of works for Playism to draw from, Double Dealing Character will hopefully be the first of many more Touhou localizations to come. Wonderful news for folks who have perhaps heard the series' name before in passing but not yet glimpsed into the madness.

It was just last week that Chris talked about his infatuation with bullet hell shooters. Swell guy.
