Touhou Genso Wanderer

One day, Reimu Hakurei is visiting Rinnosuke Morichika at his shop, Kourindo. He shows her one of his prized possessions, the golden sphere. However, when she touches it, it unleashes a mysterious beam of light. Rinnosuke starts acting strange, and a giant tower now stands where Kourindo used to be. The population of Gensokyo has also been replicated by clones who attack people on sight. As the Hakurei Shrine Maiden, it is Reimu’s duty to resolve this latest incident and bring peace back to Gensokyo.

Along the way, she is joined by Futo Mononobe, who has recently set out on a quest to become a first class sage. With her partner in tow, can Reimu make her way through the dungeons of the tower and put an end to this incident?

After getting sucked into a magical book, Aya and Momiji must find their way back home. Explore every nook and cranny to unravel the mystery of the Book World!

Swap between the two girls in battle, so you can utilize their abilities to gain the advantage. Aya excels at long-distance combat, and she can float and dash for short distances. As for Momiji, close-range combat is her specialty, and she can run up walls and sprint for long distances.

Not only is the map of this world massive, but there are many hidden areas that exist too. Within them, you might find skills or items that may come in handy during battle, so if you come across something suspicious, check it out.

Answering a question about the availability of Touhou Double Focus, NIS America said, “The 2D platformer, Touhou Double Focus, will be available digitally for both the PS4 and the PS Vita. There is currently no physical release planned for the PS Vita, but you can get it on a disc for the PS4 with the Touhou Genso Wanderer launch day edition.”
