Welcome a trio of fresh faces
Just yesterday, publisher Compile Heart and developer Sting announced that the single-player bullet hell tactical RPG ‘Touhou Spell Carnival’ will release on Switch in Japan April 18th, 2024. That news has been followed by a brand-new trailer and information on special characters that’ll appear. You can take a look at the new trailer above.
Touhou Spell Carnival will offer players 3 different versions to choose from; the standard edition for 8,580, 10,780 yen for the Carnival Edition, and 14,080 yen for the Special Pack. The Special Pack includes SD figures of Reimu and Marisa, a hanging scroll with newly drawn artwork, stickers, a visual book, and a soundtrack CD.
Touhou Project is a bullet hell shoot ’em up game series created by the ZUN-led development circle Team Shanghai Alice. Set in Gensokyo, a land isolated from the outside world, the story follows protagonists like Reimu Hakurei, shrine maiden of Hakurei Shrine, as they settle disturbances called “anomalies” caused by various factors.
It was also announced that Yukari Yakumo, Remilia Scarlet, and Sakuya Izayoi will be included in the game, and you can get details on each below.
Yukari Yakumo (voiced by Youko Hikasa)
Ability: Can Manipulate Boundaries to an Extent
A great youkai who can move anywhere by creating rifts in space. She usually sleeps a lot and tends to leave things like personal matters to her shikigami. She is one of the sages who created Gensokyo.
Remilia Scarlet (voiced by Maaya Uchida)
Ability: Can Manipulate Destiny to an Extent
A vampire maiden and head of Scarlet Devil Mansion who has lived for over 500 years. She is selfish, easily bored, and tends to stir up trouble for those around her with her whims and curiosity. Since she is a vampire, she is weak to sunlight and often sleeps during the day. When she does go out during the day, she carries a parasol to block the sunlight.
Sakuya Izayoi (voiced by Yuuki Kuwahara)
Ability: Can Manipulate Time to an Extent
The head maid and the sole human in the vampire-occupied Scarlet Devil Mansion. She is an impeccably perfect maid who handles her work flawlessly.
