Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity will obliterate your boredom on Sept. 20


Immortality is overrated

Well, folks. It looks like we're in for a September that's filled with lots of colorful bullets since Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity, the Touhou fan game by Ankake Spa that gives off a Ys: The Oath in Felghana and Ys Origins vibe, hits North America on Sept. 20 for the PS4 as a digital release for $19.99.

While my experience with the Touhou series may still be limited to the Memories of Phantasm doujin anime, I'm glad that I'll have the chance to check out one of the Touhou fan titles in English. With NIS' release of Touhou: Genso Rondo launching in the same month, I have a feeling that this is a great month for Touhou fans. 

Perhaps the main thing that's drawing me towards the game is its story about the Vampire Remilia Scarlet wanting to slay a couple powerful monsters that destroyed her mansion. To top it off, she was originally trying to find this beast so she could put an end to her boredom.

Of course, the Ys-like combat system is another element that makes me want to play it. I guess you could say that it was fate that XSEED got the chance to bring this game to the west.

Is anyone looking forward to playing Scarlet Curiosity?
