XSEED Games Releases Expansive DLC Gensokyo Dreaming for Touhou: New World, Adding a Brand-new Story, New Stages, and Eight Additional Playable Characters from the Touhou Universe

TORRANCE, Calif. — July 10, 2024 — XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today released the expansive Gensokyo Dreaming DLC for developer Ankake Spa’s fan-made action-RPG/bullet hell game, Touhou: New World. The brand-new content introduces an original storyline, new stages, bosses, and eight additional playable characters from the Touhou Project universe to join existing characters Reimu and Marisa. The DLC is available digitally on Nintendo Switch™ system, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, and Windows PC via Steam for a MSRP of $9.99, and as part of a bundle with Touhou: New World for a MSRP of $31.49 on PlayStation®Store and $31.48 on the Nintendo eShop and Steam.

Gensokyo Dreaming returns players to the magical world as powerful psychic Sumireko Usami travels across Gensokyo gathering allies to face the evil spirit Mima. As players progress through the new storyline, they will unlock eight new characters that players can freely change between to tackle the new challenges ahead. New stages will test players’ bullet-dodging skills in exciting locales such as factories once used by the kappa, the tops of abandoned trains, and even the inside of an abandoned space station! Those skills will be pushed to the limit in intense boss battles, where players will need precise movement and careful timing to stay alive and dish out a magical beat-down.


Shrine Maiden Skills and Magician Moves – Enemies may unleash fountains of projectiles, but they can be countered by inflicting heavy damage with spell cards, dealing powerful blows with exorcism sticks, and slowing attacks with well-timed guards.

Get to Know Gensokyo – Help friendly Gensokyo residents by finding lost souls, investigating strange areas, and engaging in mock battles. Players will be rewarded handsomely, and they might learn a tip or two to aid them in their quest.

Customizable Action – Characters can be customized to suit nearly any playstyle. Their skills can be leveled up through use in battle, upgrading essential stats like health and attack power to help them overcome the odds.

Don’t Forget to Accessorize – Every weapon, piece of armor, and accessory found has randomized stats, so mix and match to make the most of them or reforge equipment to get the perfect combination.

An Expanded Cast of Colorful Characters – Eight characters from the Touhou Project universe have been added and are now playable throughout the game, once they are unlocked by progressing through the DLC. Play as Sumireko Usami, Koishi Komeiji, Reisen Undongein Inaba, Youmu Konpaku, Remilia Scarlet, Sakuya Izayoi, Flandre Scarlet, and Yukkuri Reimu!
