Bullet hell series is offering a three-level demo of its latest title
The new game Touhou Kikeijuu: Wily Beast and Weakest Creature is bringing new meaning to the term "bullet hell."
The game, announced recently and demo'd at this month's Reitaisai 16, is the 17th official Touhou Project release. Popular main characters Reimu, Marisa, and Youmu return with a new mission: to stop a group of hellish animal spirits from taking over the surface world.
A three-level demo is now available for free download from Steam, so fans around the world can give it a try. (Note: the demo is only in Japanese.)
Players can boost their skills with one of three animal familiars: Wolf (powers up Focused Shot), Eagle (powers up Unfocused Shot), and Otter (powers up bombs or creates a barrier).
Regarding the full release, the Shanghai Alice blog simply says, "Let's meet again when the game is finished."
