Developer Souvenir Circ's vibrant, side-scrolling Touhou Project bullet hell game, Azure Reflections, is now available for Nintendo Switch.
Published by Sony publishing label UNTIES, Azure Reflections takes players to the otherworldly realm of Gensokyo where a mysterious evil emanates from Scarlet Devil Manor. Players must investigate the source of the dark power as the Touhou Project’s principal protagonist Reimu while evading deadly barrages of bullets and blasting enemy youkai into oblivion.
There are also a pair of new playable characters, Marisa and Cirno, to experience Azure Reflections from a fresh perspective with their distinct attributes and special abilities. Players can also spend currency earned during each run to upgrade the girls’ skills with adorable stat-boosting accessories. This includes practically everything from bunny ears and devil wings to shoes, masks, eyewear, mustaches, and more.
“Azure Reflections builds on the Touhou Project’s rich 20-year history and the Souvenir Circ. development team’s experience to create a fresh and exciting new take on the phenomenon,” said John Davis, G&R Representative, UNTIES. “We’re proud to bring the game to a new audience with Nintendo Switch today and look forward to having more fans join the fun.”
In celebration of the launch, Azure Reflections is being discounted through Sept. 12, 2018 on both the Nintendo eShop and PlayStation Store for 30% off its base $24.99 MSRP.
