Twilight Frontier announced on Twitter on Wednesday that it will release the Touhou Hyōibana: Antinomy of Common Flowers game on the PlayStation 4.
Additionally, Twilight Frontier revealed during a livestream for Mediascape's Play, Doujin! project on Friday that it is also preparing a Nintendo Switch version of the game, but the Switch version will launch at a later date than the PS4 version. The livestream also previewed the PS4 version of the game, and revealed that a PS4 demo version will be available at the "Hakurei Jinja Reitaisai" event on May 5.
Touhou Hyōibana: Antinomy of Common Flowers is the third game in a series of Touhou Project fighting games developed by Twilight Frontier (Tasogare Frontier or "Tasofro") in collaboration with Team Shanghai Alice, and is officially counted as the "15.5th" game in the Touhou Project series. The game originally launched for PC at the Comiket 93 event in December 2017, and Twilight Frontier and Sunfish Co., Ltd. then released the game on Steam in January 2018.
Team Shanghai Alice released the first game in the series, Touhou: Highly Responsive to Prayers, in 1995 on the PC-98 platform. Since then, the series has spawned other main games, multiple spin-offs, and many fan-made derivative works based on characters and stories from the series. Team Shanghai Alice recently announced that the upcoming 17th game in the series, Touhou Kikeijū: Wily Beast and Weakest Creature, will be completed by this summer.
Playism released Touhou: Double Dealing Character in May 2015 as the first official release of any game in the Touhou Project series in English-speaking territories. Playism, NIS America, and XSEED Games have released some of the fan-made games based on the franchise.
