That’s a mouthful of a moniker
It’s time to get your dodge on, as we have news of another bullet-hell blaster making the jump to Switch. As revealed by publisher Phoenixx, the super-cute, super-chaotic Touhou Gouyoku Ibun: Suibotsushita Chinshuu Jigoku will hit the Nintendo Switch this fall, one year on from its 2021 PC release.
For those who are less inclined, Touhou Gouyoku Ibun: Suibotsushita Chinshuu Jigoku is a unique release that combines 2D side-scrolling action, shmup-style bullet hell chaos, and card-based elemental battles to create an apocalyptic anime opera. A gaggle of anime gals battle it out in fantasy warfare, with the player utilizing swift movement to dodge projectiles, while also turning the enemy’s wide variety of attacks against them. The cast of characters is pulled directly from the long-running shmup series Touhou Project, though they are choosing to remain (mostly) planted on terra firma for this outing.
So far, Phoenixx has only announced a Japanese release for Touhou Gouyoku Ibun: Suibotsushita Chinshuu Jigoku, and it seems somewhat unlikely that it will receive a localization in the west. Still, the Touhou Project community is nothing if not a dedicated bunch, and will likely pick the new game up via import in order to take its pulse-pounding action on the go. If you’d like to learn more about the game, or see it in action for yourself, then perhaps check it out over on the Steam store.
