Xseed Games announced that it is bringing the action RPG Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity to PC in the west with a variety of improvements including a new “Bullet Hell” mode for veterans and newbies to challenge.


You can check out the announcement alongside several other titles revealed this morning in the above video.


Here are details from Xseed:

Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity begins with the so-called “Scarlet Devil” Remilia Scarlet, who, at 500 years old, is desperately searching for something new to end the monotony of immortality. After stumbling upon a newspaper article about a powerful and mysterious monster terrorizing the countryside, she rushes out to see if this could finally be the excitement for which she yearns. Unfortunately, not only is she unsuccessful in her search for the monster, but she returns to find her manor in ruins. It would seem the monster has come to her! With a renewed sense of determination (and a much-needed respite from her boredom), she vows to take revenge on this fiend and make it pay!

Originally debuting in North America on PS4™, Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity comes to PC where even more players can experience this doujin adventure in the ever-evolving Touhou Project universe. Players will be able to fully explore and discover the world of Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity over a variety of levels as they fight their way through hordes of enemies and intense boss encounters. Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity trades in the series’ top-down “bullet hell” roots for an action RPG approach, drawing inspiration from series such as Ys while still retaining a distinctly indie feel. This PC release proudly boasts support for 4k resolutions and introduces a new “Bullet Hell” mode created to offer further challenge for Touhou Project veterans or give newcomers a true taste of the franchise’s roots.
