Press release:
TOKYO – Aug. 30, 2018 – Azure Reflections, the vibrant, side-scrolling bullet hell shooter from Sony publishing label UNTIES and developer Souvenir Circ. where players’ performance against bosses impacts how the story unfolds, is out now for Nintendo Switch.

Azure Reflections is an unofficial entry in the Touhou Project, a series recognized by the Guinness World Records as the “most prolific fan-made shooter series.” As the Touhou Project has grown in popularity, it has spread to other media including commercial fan books, music, light novels, manga and several fan-made anime in addition to the main series.

In the otherworldly realm of Gensokyo, a mysterious evil emanates from Scarlet Devil Manor. Investigate the source of this dark power as the Touhou Project’s principal protagonist Reimu while evading deadly barrages of bullets and blasting enemy youkai into oblivion.

Unlock new playable characters, Marisa and Cirno, to experience Azure Reflections from a fresh perspective with their distinct attributes and special abilities. Spend currency earned during each run to upgrade the girls’ skills with adorable stat-boosting accessories, including everything from bunny ears and devil wings to shoes, masks, eyewear, mustaches and more.

Put the gear to good use by harnessing increased speed, smaller hitboxes, an expanded pickup radius and other handy powers to better weave through complex patterns of bullets, run up the leaderboards and perhaps even perfect the game’s boss battles to see the story’s true ending.

“Azure Reflections builds on the Touhou Project’s rich 20-year history and the Souvenir Circ. development team’s experience to create a fresh and exciting new take on the phenomenon,” said John Davis, G&R Representative, UNTIES. “We’re proud to bring the game to a new audience with Nintendo Switch today and look forward to having more fans join the fun.”

In celebration of the launch, Azure Reflections is currently discounted (through Sept. 12, 2018) via both the Nintendo eShop and PlayStation Store for 30% off its base $24.99 / €24.99 MSRP.
