The 3D fighting action game Touhou Koubuto V will be launching one whole day ahead of schedule in Japan. Cubetype announced that it will now be releasing on November 2nd, and alongside the announcement came some new detail, screenshots, and a trailer.


In the game you will be fighting one-on-one in 3D battle arenas, using barrages of bullets and physical attacks to win. There is also a variety of controls, button combos, link attacks, and “cancels”, making the combat more robust.

Game Modes

The game will include these modes:

  • Scenario Mode – A single-player campaign where you look into an accident in Gensokyo, with different scenarios for individual characters.
  • Arcade Mode
  • Score Attack Mode
  • Training Mode

Trailer and Screenshots

The Vita features ad-hoc supported battles, and purchasing the game will get you a free PS Vita or PS4 theme depending on which you buy. It is also important to note the game is not cross-buy. The game is 3,000 yen, and if you buy both versions the second will be available for 2,000 yen instead.

This Vita fan likes all kinds of games (outside of the horror genre, and even then will still play them so that those around him can enjoy watching him squirm). He's been a PlayStation gamer since the the PS2 era, with his favorite game from it being Jak 2. Nowadays, PS Vita is his go to gaming machine and Persona 4 Golden is his go to game. His love for the Vita's bubble menu design is surely unmatched, and he hopes to bring an open mind and hopefully interesting thoughts to The Vita Lounge. Also, he is a pun enthusiast. Be sure to follow him on Twitter, as he thinks he's pretty good at it.

    I sure wish more games would do that But one copy, get second copy at a discount. It’d get me to double dip more often.

      And being completely cross-buy would be even sweeter 😀

        Cross buy is great and all, but I think it really hurts sales numbers. I mean, your sales could be cut in half by two people who are only interested in one version. I know I went halvsies on Sly 4 with a friendbarbed because I wanted the vita copy and he wanted the ps3. Same with Playstation All Stars. They got smart and eventually went digital only on cross buy, but even so, I’m only ever interested in one version over the other.

          I think most people are only ever interested in one version, so cross-buy is really just giving more incentive to buy in the first place. Still, it’s not like I know the metrics or anything, but I’d guess that overtly consumer friendly moves like cross-play would end up helping a games sales rather than hinder it. Anecdotally, I know that my indecisiveness has led to be not buying a game at all in the past. I preferred playing on my Vita, but I also enjoy the ability to stream games on PS4, and it was basically that that led me to never buying Akiba’s Trip.
