Once again NIS America has gone for the double!

Having already announced a change of release date for Culdcept Revolt (delaying it to October), now the same again as happened with Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle. Instead of coming September 5th and 8th like previously stated, it will now arrive October 5th for North America and October 8th for Europe.


NIS America are saddened to have to break the news, but at least it’s not just the Switch version being delayed but also PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita versions as well, but just in case it’s been a little too long since we last heard news of Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle, here’s a couple of details pertaining to the title and an all new trailer:

About the Story: Reimu is spending her time at the Hakurei Shrine like any other day until a few people visiting the shrine spoke of rumors that a vampire is joining forces with the yokais to assault human beings. Concerned, Reimu steps up and goes to the Scarlet Devil Mansion to investigate the vampire. What mysterious figure is behind all of these escalating attacks…?

About the Game: Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle is a bullet-hell battle game that takes place in the Touhou universe. Take control of one of nine Touhou characters and eliminate your opponent using bullet-hell patterns, melee attacks, or spell cards! Featuring ear-tingling beats for each character, you might just find yourself dancing while you play!


Key Features:

  • Return to the World of Touhou – Jump back into the world of Touhou and play as some of your favorite characters in a brand-new 3D square arena.
  • High-flying Combat – Outwit your opponent by taking your bullet-hell battles to the sky! Perform dashes, doublejumps, and mid-air dashes to avoid bullets and demoralize your opponent!
  • Climb the Rankings – Compete at home with friends, or online against everyone to climb the rankings and become the ultimate Touhou fighter!

I know it’s a longer wait than we were previously lead to believe, but it will be well worth it as it is one game that I myself can’t wait to get!
