Japanese developer CUBETYPE is going to reach English shores with Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle. NIS America made the announcement at their press event in San Francisco today. The bullet hell/fighter hybrid will get physical and digital release on PlayStation 4 but only a digital release on PlayStation Vita. The game will be available at some point in the future in North America and Europe, but no official release date has been revealed.
Since this is a 3D shooter/battler, it will have PSVR functionality. Players will be able to look around their environments and experience the action up close and personal.
The publisher details further:
Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle is a bullet-hell battle game that takes place in the Touhou universe. Take control of one of nine Touhou characters and eliminate your opponent using bullet-hell patterns, melee attacks, or spell cards! Featuring ear-tingling beats for each character, you might just find yourself dancing while you play!
Return to the World of Touhou – Jump back into the world of Touhou and play as some of your favorite characters in a brand-new 3D square arena.
High-flying Combat – Outwit your opponent by taking your bullet-hell battles to the sky! Perform dashes, double-jumps, and mid-air dashes to avoid bullets and demoralize your opponent!
Climb the Rankings – Compete at home with friends, or online against everyone to climb the rankings and become the ultimate Touhou fighter!
We’ll have more information as it becomes available.
