The Supernatural World

Touhou: New World brings players back to the supernatural world Gensokyo, a place where humans and spirits called as youkai call it their home. While life here is not perfect, it's remained relatively uneventful. This all changes when the mystical barrier that protects it has been breached by an outsider who's obsessed with the supernatural realm and wants to bring chaos to Gensokyo and the world beyond.

It's now up to the shrine maiden Reimu, along with her magician friend Marisa, to learn more about what this chaos is all about and bring back peace to both worlds. Along the way, they'll need to dodge barrages of magical bullets and fight against an assortment of mystical creatures.
