Check out our review of the game’s Switch release.

Touhou: New World is from the same developers of 2016’s Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity. The game takes place within the Touhou Project world and has players return to Gensokyo for new battles and adventures.

This time, the barrier protecting this world is breached by an outsider with a supernatural obsession, which brings chaos to Gensokoyo. Reimu and her friend Marisa set out to uncover the true source of the chaos and bring peace to the world.

During gameplay, players can explore 3D environments and fight against various enemies. However, the real fun of the game is during boss encounters when players will need to dodge and strategize attacks. The playable characters have various skills to take down the baddies, but the bosses have several methods of showing players this series’ bullet-hell roots.

Further, players can customize and upgrade the characters for further progress. Every weapon, piece of armor, and accessory found has randomized stats, so mix and match to make the most of them or reforge equipment to get the perfect combination.
