“Touhou Genso Wanderer” Trailer Highlights Dungeon-Crawling Allies

NIS America has Touhou Genso Wanderer set for a March debut on PS4 and PS Vita in the west, so now is as good a time as any to dig into more of its features. The roguelike RPG has a handful of partners the player can depend on while crawling dungeons, and you can see some of their special abilities in the video below. 




One day, Reimu Hakurei is visiting Rinnosuke Morichika at his shop, Kourindo. He shows her one of his prized possessions, the golden sphere. However, when she touches it, it unleashes a mysterious beam of light. Rinnosuke starts acting strange, and a giant tower now stands where Kourindo used to be. The population of Gensokyo has also been replicated by clones who attack people on sight. As the Hakurei Shrine Maiden, it is Reimu’s duty to resolve this latest incident and bring peace back to Gensokyo. 


Along the way, she is joined by Futo Mononobe, who has recently set out on a quest to become a first class sage. With her partner in tow, can Reimu make her way through the dungeons of the tower and put an end to this incident?


Touhou Genso Wanderer hits PS4 and PS Vita in North America on March 21, followed by Europe on March 24.
