Game Story

Touhou: New World brings players to the supernatural world of Gensokyo. It's a place considered home to humans and spirits called youkai. While life for the residents here is far from idyllic, it is uneventful most of the time.

However, that changes when the mystical barrier protecting it is breached by an outside force obsessed with the supernatural realm. This outside force wants to bring chaos to Gensokyo and the world beyond.

The task to stop this now falls to the shrine maiden Reimu and her magician friend Marisa. They must learn more about the true source of the chaos and bring back peace to both worlds. Along the way, they'll be dodging magical bullet barrages and fighting a menagerie of mystical creatures.
