Touhou Picked Up For First Official Western Release

Touhou is a popular indie bullet-hell SHMUP that has previously been an import only acquisition, and a rare and expensive one at that. It being an insanely difficult bullet hell shooter with some stellar music, there wasn’t really much of a language barrier for Western gamers to join in on the fun. Still, there’s some good news for less import-savvy gamers as the series is now set to make its first official Western debut courtesy of publisher Playism.

The fourteenth entry in the series has been picked up by Playsim for a Western localization, with a release date to be confirmed soon. You can read the official announcement by Playism.
