Japanese rogue-like RPG ‘Touhou Genso Wanderer’ will be coming to Nintendo Switch. The title was released on PS4 and Vita in the West last month and the developer behind the game, Aqua Style, announced via Twitter that Switch owners can expect it too; although a release in the very near future is highly unlikely.

For those not familiar with Touhou Genso Wanderer, here’s an official description below:

In this roguelike RPG, you will take control of Reimu, the Hakurei Shrine Maiden, to investigate the latest incident to take place in the world of Gensokyo. Along the way, you’ll encounter a variety of characters from the Touhou Project universe, discover mountains of loot—each piece of which is valuable thanks to the game’s item fusion system—and test your mettle with your favorite Touhou girl in tow as your adventuring partner in this approachable take on the roguelike genre.

    • I’d expect an updated version of Persona 5 on Switch somewhere down the line. Why you ask? Simple. Upgraded versions of those games always come later to a handheld and Switch will be the only option this time around :)

      • I would like to hope that you’re right. Handheld is the perfect environment for this game, especially for those who don’t have jobs and things that get in the way of gaming time. However I’ve never seen a mainline persona title on a non-Sony platform so I’m cynical that it’ll ever happen.

  1. FIRST TOUHOU ON NINTENDO CONSOLE?!
    AWESOME and this is one of the very first western touhou
    games to come out of JPN!

    It’s interesting to see that Aqua Style is releasing this game
    on the switch, originally a doujin PC game turned console game! ^_^

    Can’t wait to see it eventually come out in the future!

    I like the design of many of the Touhou characters but their games, least the 2 new ones coming out, don’t look like my kind of thing. Maybe 10 years ago, sure, but not anymore. (I’ve been spoiled by 3D games…)
