Koumajou Remilia Scarlet Symphony

CFK and Frontier Aja announced that the “Touhouvania” game Koumajou Remilia: Scarlet Symphony will appear on the Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam in 2021. The game is an HD remaster of the 2009 fanmade side-scroller, along with some additional content. Just what this content entails will be revealed in the near future. CFK also released a teaser movie for Koumajou Remilia: Scarlet Symphony. [Thanks, Dengeki Online!]

Players will take control of Reimu Hakurei as she visits Scarlet Devil Castle to defeat the latest disturbance threatening Gensokyo. In this case, the disturbance is Remilia Scarlet, who hopes to spread her mist throughout the land once again. As opposed to the bullet hell genre of the original Touhou series, Koumajou Remilia: Scarlet Symphony plays more like Castlevania. It is a side scroller in which you defeat enemies to get to a boss chamber, and the gothic aesthetic of the game only adds to the similarity. It was first released on Windows PC in 2009 at Comiket 79 under the name Koumajou Densetsu: Scarlet Symphony.

In terms of official Touhou Project games, Touhou Kouryudou ~ Unconnected Marketeers is now available on Steam. Other Touhou Project spin-off properties that will appear on PC are the fighting game Touhou DollDraft and the visual novel Hifuu Fragment.

The upcoming game will also have multilingual support. Japanese, English, Simplied Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, and French will be available at launch. Koumajou Remilia: Scarlet Symphony will release on the Nintendo Switch and PC sometime in 2021. The developers have not yet announced a price.
