posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
NIS America's official YouTube channel began streaming a new trailer on Friday for the Touhou Gensou Rondo: Bullet Ballet PlayStation 4 game that reveals that Yukari is a playable character in the game. The video also features Yukari's theme song "Necrofantasia."
NISA had conducted a character poll in May that allowed players to vote on which character they'd most like to see added to the roster. A previous trailer had revealed that Flandre will also join the game's roster. Other choices from the poll were Mokou, Tenshi, Koishi, Mamizou, Patchouli, Seiga, Yuka, Byakuren, and Reisen.
Touhou Gensou Rondo: Bullet Ballet will ship on September 6 in North America and on September 9 in Europe.
NISA is also offering a limited edition of the game that will include: a collector's box, an original soundtrack, a full-color hardcover art book, an art print set, a set of 12 pins, and bonus DLC.
NISA describes the game as follows:
Developed by CUBETYPE, Touhou Genso Rondo: Bullet Ballet is a shoot 'em up that takes place in the Touhou universe. Select from 10 playable girls and dive straight into bullet-hell! Reminiscent of a fighting game, Touhou Genso Rondo takes the traditional shoot'em up genre and infuses it with a 1v1 battle scenario, allowing for a unique gameplay experience. Learn more about the Touhou characters in Story Mode as you progress through the game, blasting your opponent with a barrage of beautiful bullets. Or if you are feeling confident, jump into online battle mode and showcase your skills to players on PSN™.
Dōjin circle CUBETYPE originally released the game on PC, and Mediascape released the game on PS4 in Japan last June as part of its "Play, Doujin" project. The PS4 version comes with balance adjustments and a full HD upgrade, as well as additional scenarios, event CG, and characters.
