Behind the scenes workings
PLAYISM would like to announce that the Nintendo Switch version of Touhou Luna NIghts, the exploration-focused 2D action Touhou fan game developed by WSS playground (under Why so serious, Inc.) and Team Ladybug, will change publishers from Phoenixx Inc. to PLAYISM starting from July 1, 2023.
Thanks to the support from fans, Touhou Luna Nights has been played on Steam for 4 years and 4 months, and on the Nintendo Switch for 2 years and 6 months. When the game was released on the Nintendo Switch, PLAYISM did so alongside Phoenixx Inc., who also provided them with console porting support. However, in order to merge the customer support channels into one and streamline the process, PLAYISM will become the sole publisher of the game starting from July 1, 2023.
With this change, PLAYISM will become the publisher and customer support window for Touhou Luna Nights on all platforms: Steam, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch. This will not change anything about the game’s content, and players can continue to play the games as usual with their existing game data, so Switch players have no need to worry.
Touhou Luna Nights is an exploration-focused 2D action title from indie development studio Team Ladybug which has garnered over 10,000 Overwhelmingly Positive reviews on Steam.
The protagonist is a recurring Touhou Project character, Sakuya Izayoi. Remilia Scarlet, head vampire of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, sends her maid Sakuya Izayoi with no warning to a world much like Gensokyo, but not quite. With no choice but to search for a way out of this strange world of Luna Nights, Sakuya begins her journey.
The action in this title is heavily based around Sakuya’s inherent ability to stop time and her skills with throwing knives, all expressed through stunning sprite animations. Aside from this there is the Touhou staple Graze system where you can avoid enemy attacks just in time to restore HP and MP and promote an exhilarating style of gameplay.
Standing in Sakuya’s way include the protagonist of Touhou herself, Reimu Hakurei, Marisa Kirisame, Remilia and her sister Flandre Scarlet, among other popular Touhou characters. Enjoy the beautiful pixel spritework and animation by Team Ladybug in flashy, thrilling boss battles.
