Playism Brings Touhou: Double Dealing Character Game to the West
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Indie game digital distribution platform Playism announced on Tuesday that it will publish Team Shanghai Alice's Touhou: Double Dealing Character "bullet hell" shooter game in English. The release will be the first official release of any game in the Touhou Project series in English-speaking territories.
Touhou: Double Dealing Character is the 14th main game in the Touhou Project series of "bullet hell" shooters. Japanese dōjin developer ZUN (founder and sole member of the Team Shanghai Alice dōjin game developer circle) released the first game in the series, Highly Responsive to Prayers, in 1995 on the PC-98 platform. Since then, the series has spawned 13 other main games, multiple spin-offs, and many fan-made derivative works based on characters and stories from the series.
Playism has not announced a release date for the game, but the announcement noted that it would release more information soon.
