Touhou: New World gameplay features
The features below have been revealed by Xseed Games:
- Shrine Maiden Skills and Magician Moves – Enemies may unleash fountains of projectiles, but they can be countered by inflicting heavy damage with spell cards, dealing powerful blows with exorcism sticks, and slowing attacks with well-timed guards.
- Get to Know Gensokyo – Help friendly Gensokyo residents by finding lost souls, investigating strange areas, and engaging in mock battles. Players will be rewarded handsomely, and they might learn a tip or two to aid them in their quest.
- Customizable Action – Reimu and Marisa can be customized to suit nearly any playstyle. Their skills can be leveled up through use in battle, upgrading essential stats like health and attack power to help them overcome the odds.
- Don’t Forget to Accessorize – Every weapon, piece of armor, and accessory found has randomized stats, so mix and match.
Touhou: New World releases on July 13 for Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. It will come to PS5 and PS4, but the date will be revealed later.
