    Interesting they’re focusing just on Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. Now I just wait for an actual Touhou to go to console.

    A former Sony systems exclusive game coming to the Switch this late Summer/Early Fall in North America and Europe! NIS America is delivering the goods and support to Nintendo and Switch owners (including owners of different systems).

      I don’t think this game can be considered good. Looking by the gameplay, it looks like a Pc game made in 2001. Also, it got a 24 in famitsu.

  • hi v3.0

    You can play with loli girls anywhere now!

  • The game that Switch deserves.

      Can’t wait to get my hands on the Senran Kagura as well

    • William Orlando Figueroa

      The game got a 24 in famitsu so…

    Does the green one have an alien bursting out of her chest or something?

    • Right? Poor Meiling. . . I really hate that floating boob ****. I remember that game series by Atlus that is related to or looks like SMT had that too. And it’s the same designer as some of the recent Digimon games, where he did it there too. I can’t stand it. Not only do the breasts look ridiculous, but it just looks silly? And like it’s probably painful.

      • Tlink7

        It looks incredibly stupid and hilarious. Why do designers do this? Is this really sexy to people? They are the fakest boobs ever >.< all these animoo girls are going to have a ruined spine when they are old

        • It honestly does. I’m wondering who it’s attractive to. The funny thing is, I am positive they would think it’s ugly in real people. /smh

  • DeltaPeng

    Not sold on the gameplay quite yet, glad they’re trying something new though

  • William Orlando Figueroa

    I’m still waiting for an actual Touhou bullet hell shoot em up.
