PLAYISM is proud to announce that Touhou Luna Nights, the 2D exploration-heavy action Touhou Project fan game developed by Team Ladybug and WSS playground was released for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on January 25, 2024.

Alongside the PlayStation release, an update for the Nintendo Switch version of the game was released which fixes some bugs.

Touhou Luna Nights is an exploration-focused 2D action title from indie development studio Team Ladybug which has garnered over 10,000 Overwhelmingly Positive reviews on Steam.

The protagonist is a recurring Touhou Project character, Sakuya Izayoi. Remilia Scarlet, the head vampire of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, sends her maid Sakuya Izayoi with no warning to a world much like Gensokyo, but not quite. With no choice but to search for a way out of this strange world of Luna Nights, Sakuya begins her journey.

The action in this title is heavily based on Sakuya’s inherent ability to stop time and her skills with throwing knives, all expressed through stunning sprite animations. Aside from this, there is the Touhou staple Graze system where you can avoid enemy attacks just in time to restore HP and MP and promote an exhilarating style of gameplay.

Standing in Sakuya’s way includes the protagonist of Touhou herself, Reimu Hakurei, Marisa Kirisame, Remilia and her sister Flandre Scarlet, among other popular Touhou characters. Enjoy the beautiful pixel sprite work and animation by Team Ladybug in flashy, thrilling boss battles.
