Gensokyo Defenders, the blistering shoot-em-up tower defense game from Sony publishing label UNTIES and developer Neetpia, blasts onto Nintendo Switch today.
Choose from more than 15 characters, each with a set of three distinct abilities such as freezing enemies in place, building barriers to prevent escape from trap zones or blasting a trio of icy beams to deal extra damage. Unleash a hail of magical projectiles at oncoming hordes, reminiscent of Touhou Project’s bullet hell roots. Grab power ups from downed creatures for a boost before taking on one of 19 bosses.
With three difficulty modes and more than 25 stages, Gensokyo Defenders provides a great experience for players of all skill levels. When the going gets tough, seek help from a friend or stranger in two player co-op via Nintendo Switch Online in the greatest war Gensokyo has seen.
“Neetpia has created a fresh take on the Touhou Project by integrating tower defense with the shooting action Touhou is known for,” said John Davis, G&R Representative, UNTIES. “The strategic action gameplay will keep players coming back for more.”
Gensokyo Defenders is available on Nintendo eShop for $19.99 USD with English text localization and full audio and text available in Japanese.
