“Play, Doujin!” project expanded to include Switch, distributing fan-created Touhou games

Posted on September 8, 2017 by (@OnePunchMaz) in News, Switch

“Play, Doujin!” is a distribution platform for fangames that was launched three years ago as a collaboration between Sony and Touhou Project creator Zun. Now, the service is extending its support to include Switch games as well. As such, you can expect to see more indie games from Japan coming to the system, especially Touhou games since that was the initial focus of the “Play, Doujin!” project.

The first such game coming to the Switch will be the 3D shoot‘em up fighter Touhou Kobuto V, which was developed by Cubetype and is being published by NIS America. As you can see by NIS America’s involvement, the “Play, Doujin!” project on Switch won’t be limited to just Japan, but plans to bring some of its games to the West as well.

    In my opinion Touhou kinda sucks. But hey more switch games the better

    • WTFISTHISSHIT?

      What? Its one of the best if not THE best Japanese indie games ever created!

      • Velen (Not WoW)

        Well to be fair, it’s pervasiveness as a franchise in popular culture can cause it to be a bit annoying.

      • Shonenfan

        Just because something is popular doesnt mean you have to like it. But hey what is Opinions right?

    • Ardisan

      Come on, could have said “In my opinion I’m not a big fan of the Touhou games.”

      Saying it “sucks” is kinda too harsh imo, but hey whatever a opinion is a opinion.

      • Shonenfan

        So i have to be angel here on the internet? I can say whatever i want.

        • Egit-kun

          This is why we can’t have nice things. You probably knew from the start that you were gonna start arguments with people by wording it that way.

          • Shonenfan

            Not really. i was just saying about this game the same way i did on discord with people. It was when the ps4 version got released. I said it sucks. Some people agreed some didn’t. Look at my history i don’t start a argument out lf nowhere just stating my honest opinion

        • Ardisan

          I am saying that if you are trying to harmlessly state your opinion, don’t make it so your opinion is too out there. These types of things start arguments, opinion or not. But yes the internet means that you shouldn’t ever be nice, everyone on the internet must be a devil on the internet, no acceptations. Thank you.

          • Shonenfan

            Ok? I still said more games the better. I might not like it but doesnt mean others wont. Angel or devil doesn’t matter. It will either sound nice or it wont. Don’t care about being harsh. Good day

          • Ardisan

            Thats cool and all but you really didnt understand what I said. But whatever man

  • Princess_Eevee9

    Article forgot to mention that we’re also getting that Mystery Dungeon game for Touhou this year I think? But the Fighting game is in October 12th I believe?

    • Ryosuke Yamada

      The Mystery Dungeon game (Touhou Genso Wanderer) seems to be a demo-only showcase for a convention. There hasn’t been any confirmation that the complete game will be released on the Switch yet.

      • Princess_Eevee9

        I’m seeing that it is indeed coming to the Nintendo Switch.

    • R.Z.

      If it ever gets released with a good translation I’d play that.

  • YamiryuuZero

    YES! More Touhou games for Switch, please!
    Fan made ones, official ones! Just make the Switch a platform for the franchise!
    Make the Switch the… STRONGEST CONSOLE!!!

  • The fan games really don’t interest me a lot (save for like, the Marisa Mario ones), but this is still cool/good news. Hope they do well.

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      Some of the fan games are awesome. Touhou Super Robot Wars is pretty awesome.

      • Haha, I never knew that one existed, I need to look into it. x’D
