Touhou Genso Wanderer: Foresight, the roguelike RPG Touhou Project fan game from publisher Phoenixx and developer Aquastyle, rebuilds fallen kingdoms on PC via Steam on Wednesday, May 15th, 2024, as shown during today’s Tokyo Indie Game Summit.

After defeat in battle, Reimu Hakurei has fallen unconscious, waking in the pillaged Hakurei Shrine with no recollection of recent events. With the help of Touhou heroine Marisa Kirisame, embark on a quest to piece together the mystery lost to memory, and save Gensokyo from destruction at the hands of an unknown enemy. 

Defend Gensokyo alongside one of 60+ Touhou characters, each with their own distinct attributes. Dive into dungeons in search of supplies to rebuild the Hakurei Shrine to its former glory, collecting weapons, usable items, and 20 different spells along the way. 

Confront a cadre of diverse enemies including fairies, vampires , and supernatural shapeshifters that lie in wait during every dungeon dive. Strategically position the team to unleash melee strikes or ranged Danmaku attacks, and equip special spells that can deal damage across the entire screen. 

Ration rice balls and green tea to teammates to manage mana supplies, and keep an eye on Reimu’s stamina levels — she’ll receive damage over time when her levels reach zero. Advance through dungeons enacting spells to illuminate unexplored map tiles, or risk triggering traps that stun, cause blindness, spread poison among team members, or even disarm equipped gear. 

As a Touhou Project fan game title, enjoy a full-fledged Touhou experience with a star-studded voice cast and background music by Tatsuyuki Toyota (soundtrack, Super Robot Wars DD, Super Robot Wars 30).

Touhou Genso Wanderer: Foresight returns to its roguelike roots thanks to a straightforward dungeon crawl experience with tons of depth,” said Jyunya, head of Aquastyle. “The story is as compelling as the gameplay, and it’s been a pleasure to work with the various artists, musicians and developers who have made this game a possibility.”

Touhou Genso Wanderer: Foresight hops onto PC via Steam on Wednesday, May 15th, 2024 with language options in English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, and Japanese.
