NIS America has announced that 3D shoot ‘em up fighter Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle is releasing on June 30 in Europe and July 4 in North America for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The PS4 version will also include PlayStation VR support “for the ultimate immersive experience.”

In addition to the game, the Limited Edition includes a hardcover art book, 1-disc original soundtrack, set of nine magnets, and a Collector’s Box.

Here’s the description for Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle:

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!

As the official website shows, there’s a local split-screen two-player versus mode, as well as an online battle mode.
