July 1, 2017 Written by Zarmena Khan

Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle has suffered yet another delay as NIS America needs additional time to accommodate its production and manufacturing. The game, which was initially set to release next week and then got pushed to September, will now release on October 10 in North America and October 13 in Europe.

NIS also released a new trailer (above), which showcases the game’s PlayStation 4 and PS Vita versions.

Here’s an official overview of the title:

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!

Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle will release physically and digitally for PS4 and Nintendo Switch, and digitally for the PS Vita.
