New Touhou Sky Arena: Matsuri Climax Trailer Hints at Localized Version

Area Zero has released a new English trailer for the upcoming Touhou Sky Arena: Matsuri Climax. The game, which is out in Japan as Touhou Sky Arena: Gensoukyou Kuusen Hime Matsuri Climax, hadn’t been hinted at being localized, but with the trailer being in English and featuring a visible name change, it seems likely now that a localization is incoming.
