Headed to PC later in 2022

Publisher Phoenixx and independent studio Neetpia have revealed a brand new title set within the Touhou Project universe. The Touhou Empires is a brand new real-time strategy title currently in development for PC. It is expected to launch via the Steam platform later in 2022.

Featuring a huge cast pulled from the cult anime franchise, The Touhou Empires will see players organize armies of cutesy anime girls, (and their fairy familiars), before marching onto the battlefield — gaining ground, building encampments, and engaging in battles with opposing factions. Each of the characters will be readied for battle with their own unique magic spells and special skills, so preparation, knowledge, and planning will be key to conquering your foes.

When you and your posse of maidens have laid waste to the A.I., then you’ll find that a world of multiplayer awaits, with up to six players able to engage in cooperative and competitive warfare. While this all sounds pretty neat, I can’t help but be utterly amused at the concept of warring factions of Gothic Lolita gals fighting it out in open fields and woodland. It’d be a sight to behold, that’s for durn sure.

The Touhou Empires will launch on PC (via Steam) in 2022. English language is supported, so western fans will be able to get in on the action. In related Touhou Project news, Phoenixx announced that PC actioner Touhou Gouyoku Ibun: Suibotsushita Chinshuu Jigoku is headed to Nintendo Switch in Japan this fall.
