PLAYISM, in partnership with Vaka Inc. is proud to announce that Touhou Luna Nights, by Team Ladybug, has been updated to Ver. 1.0 as of February 26th, and now includes Stages 4 & 5. Additionally, Early Access has ended, with the price of the full game changing from $11.99 to $17.99.

Touhou Luna Nights Details & Stages 4-5 Update Contents

Touhou Luna Nights is a Japanese 2D action-exploration (Metroidvania) game released to Steam Early Access in August 2018. The main character is Sakuya Izayoi, brought over from the popular Touhou Project series. Featuring Sakuya’s power of controlling time and hardcore knife battles beautifully rendered in sprite animation, the Touhou Project’s “grazing” system adds extra fun to the action, allowing you to recover HP and MP by closing in on enemies and further spicing up the fight.

Touhou Luna Nights has enjoyed huge popularity with players thanks to its beautiful sprite animations for finely detailed movements and its slew of Touhou Project character-specific moves based on their respective special powers, and boasts a 98% positive rating on Steam. Additionally, taking advantage of the features of Early Access, the developers have answered fans’ requests with the addition of high attacks, customizable button configuration, and more.

In Stages 1~3, Touhou Project characters “Meiling”, “Marisa”, and “Patchouli” made appearances as boss characters.
This Ver. 1.0 update including Stages 4 & 5 introduces new weapons such as “Screw Knife” and “Shield Dagger”, as well as an extension of Sakuya’s time-controlling abilities – “Yellow Aura”, allowing her to play gimmicks in reverse while time is stopped.
This update also includes “Remilia”, the mistress who sent maid Sakuya to this strange world, as a boss character. Remilia’s sister “Frandre” (“Fran”) also makes an appearance as a boss herself.

With the Ver. 1.0 update, Early Access is coming to a close, and the price is changing from $11.99 to $17.99 – but development is not yet finished. Future updates scheduled for spring 2019 are set to include the much-requested “Boss Rush Mode”, extra stages, and more, so don’t forget to keep checking in regularly.
