Indie game enthusiasts have something extraordinary to look forward to as Playism, the revered publisher, announced the imminent release of the highly-anticipated Touhou Luna Nights 2D action-adventure game on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

Scheduled for January 25, this release is set to surprise both seasoned gamers and newcomers to the Touhou Project franchise alike.

Developed by the ingenious minds at Team Ladybug in collaboration with WSS playground, Touhou Luna Nights has generated fervent excitement since its PC debut on Steam in February 2019.

Gaming enthusiasts can now seize the opportunity to reserve their copy of Touhou Luna Nights, with reservations having commenced this Sunday.

The game will be available in both regular and deluxe package versions, ensuring that players can immerse themselves in the world of Touhou Luna Nights in a manner that suits their preferences.

PlayStation 5 users are in for an exclusive treat. The PS5 version of Touhou Luna Nights will be showcased at the prestigious Tokyo Game Show on September 21, providing a sneak peek into the immersive experience that awaits them.

This marks a significant milestone in the game’s journey, having previously made its mark on the Xbox One console, PC through the Microsoft Store, and the Xbox Game Pass in September 2020.

The release was accompanied by an exciting addition – an exhilarating boss encounter labeled “Cirno Battle.” Later, in December 2020, the game’s magic extended to the Nintendo Switch, further solidifying its status as a multi-platform marvel.

Steam aptly describes Touhou Luna Nights as a Metroidvania title that seamlessly blends exploration with high-octane action, a testament to Team Ladybug’s exceptional track record in creating memorable action games.

For those unacquainted with the Touhou Project, it all began in 1995 with the release of Touhou: Highly Responsive to Prayers by Team Shanghai Alice.

This initial spark ignited a series of primary games, numerous spin-offs, and fan-made creations inspired by the rich characters and stories that define this beloved franchise.

As the countdown to January 25 begins, the PlayStation community can hardly contain their anticipation for the arrival of Touhou Luna Nights, which promises to be a beacon of excellence in action-adventure gaming.
