Adventures of Scarlet Curiosity, Double Focus, Mononobe no Futo and the 7 Trials, Toho Sky Arena: Matsuri Climax

Mediascape announced on Friday that it will release four Touhou Project games in the second half of 2015.

  • Touhou Kōkishin (Adventures of Scarlet Curiosity) for PlayStation 4
  • Double Focus (tentative title) for PlayStation Vita
  • Mononobe no Futo to Nanatsu no Shiren (Mononobe no Futo and the 7 Trials) for PlayStation Vita
  • Touhou Sky Arena Gensōkyō -Matsuri- Climax for PlayStation 4, and later for PlayStation Vita

Ankake Supa developed the 3D action role-playing game Adventures of Scarlet Curiosity. The player controls Remilia Scarlet and her follower Sakuya Izayoi. The pair go on a journey to find a monster that is attacking humans. The game will utilize the PlayStation 4's power.

Fushigi no Gensōkyō -The Tower of Desire- (Mystery Gensokyo: The Tower of Desire) developer Aqua Style's next title will be the exploration action game Double Focus. In the game's story, Aya Shameimaru and Momiji Inubashiri get sucked into a ghost book. Players help the characters find their way back home. The PS Vita version's additions will include more trophies and additional voices for Maruaya and Momiji.

Aqua Style also developed Mononobe no Futo to Nanatsu no Shiren as the first DLC for Fushigi no Gensōkyō -The Tower of Desire-. The story takes place before Mononobe no Futo meets Reimu Hakurei, when she and Soga no Tojiko compete seven trials imposed by Toyosatomimi no Miko. Clearing the game will earn the player dungeons and items in Tower of Desire. Mononobe no Futo will also become available as a player character, and Soga no Tojiko will be added as a support character.

The physical version of the game is dated for August 14. The digital version will be available on August 18.

Fushigi no Gensōkyō -The Tower of Desire- debuted for PlayStation Vita in Japan on June 25.

Ryōiki ZERO developed the battle action game Touhou Sky Arena Gensōkyō -Matsuri- Climax, which allows up to four players to compete. The game offers a unique battle system where the characters abilities change in accordance with the background music. The PlayStation 4 version will add new songs.

The games are part of Mediascape's "Play, Doujin" project, which will publish dōjin games (such as fan-made Touhou Project titles) on PlayStation platforms.
