NIS America have anounced that they are bringing competitive shoot ‘em up Touhou Genso Rondo: Bullet Ballet to North America and Europe in late 2016 for PlayStation 4 – a console which is swiftly becoming the go-to machine for gamers who love the kinds of wild and wacky games Japan are known for (I know I’m glad I switched from Xbox One to PS4)
For those unfamiliar with the game, Touhou Genso Rondo: Bullet Ballet is a competitive shoot ‘em up that takes place in the Touhou universe. You’ll be able to select from 10 playable girls and dive straight into bullet-hell! Developed by Cubetype, TGR is reminiscent of a fighting game, taking the traditional shoot’em up genre and infusing it with a 1v1 battle scenario, allowing for a unique gameplay experience. Players will learn more about the Touhou characters in Story Mode as you progress through the game, blasting your opponent with a barrage of beautiful bullets. Or if you are feeling confident, jump into online battle mode and showcase your skills to players on PlayStation Network.
- Full HD Remake - Originally released in Japan for the PC, the updated PlayStation 4 version of the game includes HD graphics, a complete UI overhaul, an upgraded single player mode, system rebalances, more scenarios, new characters, online play, score ranking, trophy support, and of course – Boss Rush Mode!
- Multiple Combat Options! Force your enemy into oblivion by customizing your projectiles and inventing your own beautiful bullet patterns! Or read your enemy’s patterns and sneak in close for a powerful melee attack!
- You are the Boss!? Say goodbye to the days of feeling helpless in boss battles! Genso Rondo kindly equips the player with powerful attacks and the strength of a boss!
- Spell Cards! Collect power-ups and unleash maximum damage to your enemy by casting spell cards – but use them only at the best of opportunities.
