Touhou DANMAKU KAGURA Phantasia Lost, the rhythm game set in the Touhou Project universe developed by Unknown X, will be released on Switch in 2023.
Thanks to Touhou and Danmaku fans, Japan’s Campfire crowdfunding campaign reached its goal of 15 million yen in 30 minutes, with over 80 million yen pledged so far. Thanks to this support, Unknown X has announced its commitment to a Switch version also planned for 2023.
Additionally, fans will be able to enjoy a new theme song by Kishida Kyoudan & THE Akeboshi Rockets x Kayoko Kusano. Unknown X will also add additional supported languages and an implementation of both the Mitama Card Index and a Music Cover Art Index in the PC and Nintendo Switch versions.
The pacing continues, with the campaign continuing until Monday, January 9, 2023, with additional objectives now available. Upcoming goals include a new rhythm-action game mode and a possible physical release for Nintendo Switch.
Touhou DANMAKU KAGURA Phantasia Lost rises from the ashes of DANMAKU KAGURA’s shutdown on mobile platforms. Tap notes to the beat as they fly down increasingly difficult scoreboards, with boss battles presenting particularly diabolical challenges for rhythm game fans. Enjoy controls tailored to either controller or keyboard layouts, with an all-new story mode exclusive to the PC version written by Jin Fujisawa and Wakano Takeda of Story Note Co.
Unknown X, a group founded by JYUNYA (Director of Touhou Genso Wanderer) who helps oversee the Touhou Project with help from series creator ZUN, will release the title worldwide. They’re doing this in conjunction with Ryu’s Office, who helped promote Danmaku Kagura on mobile, and will continue to help with the Steam version of the game.
