Touhou fan game hires a ton of top-tier voice talent


If you didn't know yet, Touhou's pretty big in Japan. ZUN's series of indie bullet-hell shooters starring cute witches and maids and demons has gotten so big that some have accused it of being too popular, inspiring fans to put effort and resources into Touhou-themed fan work that they could use making fan work of other properties or (heaven forbid) original content.

I suppose then, that they might not be exactly thrilled by the prospect of Komajo Densetsu II (Legend of Scarlet Devil Castle II) a new doujin game that combines Touhou with Castlevania, complete with utterly beautiful, Castlevania-esque character redesigns (check out the gallery).

Just judging from the gameplay video below you can already see it's a competent 'vania clone, but the new kicker is that developer Frontier Aja managed to hire a raftload of the year's favorite voice actors, including Miyuki Sawashiro (Durarara!!'s Celty), Haruka Tomatsu (Kannagi's Nagi), Rina Sato (Railgun/Index's Mikoto) and Satomi Sato (K-ON!!'s Ritsu).

Hell, they even managed to snag Aya Endo, also known as Macross Frontier's Sheryl. If this were a year ago I'd bet money that they might have even hired Aya Hirano (Haruhi), but she's been busy making TV appearance lately, or so I hear.

In any case, you can also try out the demo here. I think it's silent, though, so if you're just interested in hearing Miyukichi voicing Izayoi Sakuya you'll have to get the full game.
