Touhou Genso Wanderer: FORESIGHT now available

Touhou Genso Wanderer: FORESIGHT

Touhou Genso Wanderer: FORESIGHT has been released on Windows PC this week, the latest in the long-running Touhou game series.

The new game is a collaboration of publisher Phoenixx and developer AQUASTYLE, and was first announced back in March 2024.

The game is a follow-up of Touhou Genso Wanderer: Reloaded, another Steam-released game and returns Touhou to its rogue-like roots.

Touhou Genso Wanderer: FORESIGHT focuses on Touhou protagonist Reimu Hakurei as unfortunate events have threatened her shrine. Together with Marisa Kirisame and others, Reimu must solve the mystery behind the strange events and confront the person behind it. From storming dungeons filled with traps to warding off hordes of creatures hell-bent on stopping Reimu, you must save once more Gensokyo.

Reimu can select from up to sixty Touhou heroines besides Marisa, each with their own abilities and spells. The team must search for supplies like to replenish their health and mana, as well as green tea and rice balls to increase stamina; this is important since Reimu’s stamina wears over time.

Other heroines can also enlist Reimu for side missions and Reimu can gain funds to upgrade her shrine. The dungeons Reimu and company are storming are filled with fairies, vampires, and werewolves, which must be countered with melee attacks and bullet-hell waves, not to mention spells that would clear a screen of enemies.

Touhou Genso Wanderer: FORESIGHT can now be bought on Steam for $34.99. A Winter pack costs an additional $2.99. Those who pre-ordered can have a discount of US$31.49 and with DLCs up to US$32.06 up to Tuesday, May 28, and is available on English, Japanese, and Chinese (Mainland and Taiwan options).

Here’s a rundown on the game:

After defeat in battle, Reimu Hakurei has fallen unconscious, waking in the pillaged Hakurei Shrine with no recollection of recent events. With the help of Touhou heroine Marisa Kirisame, embark on a quest to piece together the mystery lost to memory, and save Gensokyo from destruction at the hands of an unknown enemy.

Defend Gensokyo alongside one of 60+ Touhou characters, each with their own distinct attributes. Dive into dungeons in search of supplies to rebuild the Hakurei Shrine to its former glory, collecting weapons, usable items, and 20 different spells along the way.

Confront a cadre of diverse enemies including fairies, vampires , and supernatural shapeshifters that lie in wait during every dungeon dive. Strategically position the team to unleash melee strikes or ranged Danmaku attacks, and equip special spells that can deal damage across the entire screen.

Ration rice balls and green tea to teammates to manage mana supplies, and keep an eye on Reimu’s stamina levels — she’ll receive damage over time when her levels reach zero. Advance through dungeons enacting spells to illuminate unexplored map tiles, or risk triggering traps that stun, cause blindness, spread poison among team members, or even disarm equipped gear.
