The Touhou Project rhythm game Touhou Danmaku Kagura: Phantasia Lost will be released in 2023 for Switch and PC (Steam), according to the developer Unknown X.
With more than 82 million yen pledged as of press time, the game's Campfire campaign exceeded its 15 million yen goal within 30 million. Unknown X was able to commit to releasing a Siwtch version because of this support.
The Mitama Card Index and a Music Cover Art Index will both be implemented within the game, along with a new theme song by the Japanese rock group Kishida Kyoudan & THE Akeboshi Rockets with composer Kayoko Kusano.
Upcoming stretch goals for the Campfire campaign include a brand-new rhythm action game mode and a potential physical Switch release. The campaign will run until January 9, 2023.
In a press statement, Unknown X's founder JYUNYA commented, "We're honoured by the fan support to continue Danmaku Kagura in this new version on Steam and Nintendo Switch." Not only have lovers of rhythm and Touhou on consoles and computers shown their support, but players of the mobile version have also said that this is the first time they have ever paid for a game that isn't free to play!
From Unknown X, here is a brief synopsis of the game:
Touhou Danmaku Kagura: Phantasia Lost rose from the ashes of the shutdown of Danmaku Kagura on mobile platforms. Tap notes to the beat as they fly down increasingly difficult note charts, with boss fights presenting particularly fiendish challenges for rhythm game fans. Enjoy controls adapted for controller or keyboard setups, with a brand new story mode exclusive to the new version written by Jin Fujisawa and Wakano Takeda of Story Note Co.
