Press release:
TOKYO, JAPAN – 15 April 2019 – “Gensokyo Defenders“, the blistering shoot-em-up tower defense game from Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) publishing label UNTIES and developer Neetpia, will bewitch enemy hordes on Steam on April 25.

The Nintendo Switch version will receive a brand new DLC alongside the Steam release.

The Nintendo Switch DLC will be free and include three each of new stages and traps, as well as new playable characters: Yakumo Yukari, who can manipulate boundaries of all kinds; Toyosatomimi no Miko, an immortal Buddhist saint; and Byakuren Hijiri, a magic-wielding nun. The new content will also be available on Steam at the time of release.

Gensokyo Defenders pulls from more than 20 years of shared lore in the Touhou Project to give each of the 20 playable witches and fairies abilities thematic to their personality.

Each girl comes with a set of three spell cards such as freezing enemies in place or building barriers to prevent escape from trap zones, as well as bullets to fire using twin-stick controls for extra damage.

Conquer more than 25 stages filled with magical foes by combining spells with an array of traps including spikes for raw damage, plants that slow movement and

watchtowers that fire on attackers from a distance. Collect power ups and upgrade abilities to defeat 19 bosses. Join a friend for online co-op to defend the mystical realm of Gensokyo in an adventure blending tower defense with shooting action.

“Gensokyo Defenders is a great mix of Touhou Project shooter gameplay with classic trap-based defense strategy,” said John Davis, G&R Representative, UNTIES.

“Neetpia did a great job adapting Touhou characters and their powers into a classic tower defense setting to create a new strategic action experience that will have players begging for more.”

Gensokyo Defenders is a fan-made entry in the Touhou Project, recognized by the Guinness World Records as the “most prolific fan-made shooter series.”

It will be available on Steam for $19.99 USD with English text localization and full audio and text available in Japanese. Nintendo Switch owners can get Gensokyo Defenders now for the same price.
