Touhou shooter coming to PS4 in the West this summer


Genso Rondo

Touhou game Genso Rondo is coming west this summer, NIS America just announced.

The shoot-'em-up fighting game hybrid will hold the distinction of being the first Touhou Project game to be officially localized for western release. Developed by doujinsoft circle Cubetype, Genso Rondo was originally distributed at Comiket 82 in August 2012 as a PC game.

The version getting localized, however, is a PlayStation 4 port, which Cubetype released in Japan last June and across Asia earlier this month, as part of Sony's "Play, Doujin!" program.

Last year, Playism released Touhou 14: Double Dealing Character via its English storefront, but the game was strangely unlocalized, prompting players to use fan translation patches.
