XSEED Games has announced the North American release date for its upcoming PlayStation 4 action RPG Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity. The title will release in the region digitally on September 20, 2016. The price for the game will be $19.99. Information regarding the European release of the game will be given in the near future.
Originally debuting as a fan-made title on Japanese PCs, Scarlet Curiosity exchanges the series' traditional "bullet-hell" style in favor of an action RPG in the vein of Ys, though several elements of the parent series are present. Players take control of either Remilia Scarlet, a five hundred-year-old vampire, or her maid, Sakuya Izayoi. After reading a headline about a vicious monster, Remilia and Sakuya seek to end their boredom by hunting for the beast. They fail to find it and come home to their home in ruins, destroyed by the very beast they were searching for. With renewed purpose, the two set out to scour the land to exact revenge on the beast.
