What are you doing right now? If you are drinking something put the drink down. If you are eating stop slowly to swallow your food. If you are standing please sit down. The news is out – Touhou is coming to the west! You have read that. That’s right.
Touhou 14: Double Dealing Character will get it’s official English release. The Touhou Project since its beginnings in 1995 has garnered fans steadily not only in Japan but the rest of the world. It is a series of games known as danmaku (bullet hell shooters) made by the one-man developer Team Shanghai Alice. This work of a single man known as ZUN had a great impact on doujin circles and got a cult following, resulting in numerous doujin works like manga, games, soundtracks, merchandise and even anime all derived from Touhou.
This is a video of someone playing Touhou 14: Double Dealing Character on Lunatic difficulty.
Hopefully this means we will get even more official Touhou titles in the future.
