Sony Publishing Label Unties Games Will Rain Bullet Hell on Nintendo Switch with Azure Reflections Aug. 30
TOKYO – Aug. 8, 2018 – Azure Reflections, the vibrant, side-scrolling Touhou Project bullet hell from Sony publishing label Unties Games and developer Souvenir Circ. where performance against bosses branches the story, will blast onto Nintendo Switch Aug. 30. It will be available at a 30% discount Aug. 30 - Sept. 12 on both Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
Annihilate enemies and dominate levels using upgradable skills. Choose from three playable characters, each with her own special ability: hard-hitting spell cards, life-saving barriers or a devastating body slam. Azure Reflections takes the familiar perspective of traditional Touhou Project shooters and turns it on its side for intense horizontal shoot-em-up action.
Azure Reflections has multiple endings, but the sole path to the best ending is excellence. Only by mastering each girl's skill set and defeating the bosses within the time limits leads to a conclusion to their tale.
Functionality meets fashion with accessories that add auto-fire, increase drop rates, reduce stun time and much more. Collect tokens to purchase cat ears, glasses, wings and other fun customizations for the girls' looks and outfit them for battle. Mow down swathes of enemies in style to take over the online leaderboards.
Enter the troubled, cute and colorful world of Gensokyo. Originally created by one-man studio Team Shanghai Alice, the setting, sealed off from our world by a magical barrier, is the thread from which all Touhou Project games are woven. This Touhou Project fan game brings the humans and supernatural denizens of Gensokyo together to investigate the evil flowing from Scarlet Devil Manor. Can they protect their home from delightfully cruel bosses in this whimsical journey?
“The Touhou Project has 20 years of history to build on, and Souvenir Circ. has taken advantage of that to create a new adventure in the rich setting of Gensokyo,” said John Davis, G&R Representative, Unties Games. “The Souvenir Circ. team has drawn on their years of experience to put together a fresh take on the setting and genre with great customization to help players adapt the characters to their playstyle in pursuit of the highest scores.”
Azure Reflections will be available on Nintendo Switch for the regular price of $24.99 USD. It is currently available on PlayStation 4 at the same price.
