But as I’ve said to the principle, surely you are reading these lines knowing, or at least knowing, something of this saga as known in Japan; by which to make this analysis I’ve soaked information around this franchise and this type of game for that, at least, not of the impression of talking without knowing very well of what will this story.

Mixing genres and sagas

To start let’s talk of the saga Touhou and all the revolution that is to caused in the country Nippon. Is is of a shooters of the gender bullet hell devised by “Zun”, a developer Japanese, for a computer absolutely unknown by these lares as is the NEC PC-9801 that not only has triumphed in the world of them video games but has flooded them stores Japanese with its own merchandising, his own line of cosplay, different sheds of video games (as games of fight) and even a gender musical derived of the heavy metal as is the Touhou Metal (a species of) Power Metal with very melodic sound and double bass until they burst the twins of the drummers of the genre).

A night at Pacha

We are visually a very simple game and even times can make us forget that we are playing a game of PlayStation 4. Is a game 2D with characters slightly scarce in design, only featured (and not much) when conducted attacks body to body discovering us to ones pj with design chibi, and little more, since these just have personality, what makes that our console not is arrive to take advantage of what should since between them characters and the interface of screen in some moments can arrive to feel certain overwhelmed seeing both text or movement in screen and not know very well where to look exactly.
