Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity, while originally out on PS4, has now been released for PC via Steam. The title is available globally for $14.99, €14.99, and £12.99, with a 10% discount off the regular price throughout its launch week. The developers at Ankake Supa and publishers XSEED Games and Marvelous USA bring this title with the options to upgrade to 4K resolution and includes an all-new “Bullet Hell” difficulty that’s exclusive to this release of it. Players will follow the adventures of the “Scarlet Devil” Remilia Scarlet as she attempts to end her boredom from immortality through either her eyes or of her maid’s, Sakuya Izayoi. The intensity from previous Touhou games is ever-present throughout this game especially with the extremity of the newest difficulty.
Immortality is boring. While one would imagine an all-powerful vampire has a lot to do, such is not the case for Remilia Scarlet. After 500 years, the Scarlet Devil is desperately searching for something new to grab her interest. One day, she finds exactly that when she stumbles upon a newspaper article about a powerful, mysterious monster wreaking havoc across the countryside. Her curiosity piqued, she runs out to investigate this disturbance, letting the tabloids guide her to just where it might be.
After an unsuccessful first investigation, she returns to find her mansion in ruins. It seems the monster has brought the fight to her! Vowing revenge, Remilia sets out with a renewed sense of determination: she will find this monster, and she will make it pay! …And, at least for a time, she might not be quite so bored.
