The wait is almost over!
The update for Touhou Luna Nights including Stages 4 and 5 is set for release on Tuesday, February 26th.
What is Touhou Luna Nights?
Touhou Luna Nights is a Japanese 2D action-exploration (Metroidvania) game boasting 98% positive reviews on Steam. 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.
This latest updated including Stages 4 & 5 introduces new features such as “Screw Knife” and “Shield Dagger”, as well as an extension of Sakuya’s time-control abilities – “Yellow Aura”, a gimmick allowing her to play out events in reverse while time is stopped – adding even more fun and action to battle and exploration alike.
In this update, “Remilia”, the mistress who sent Sakuya to this strange world, appears as a boss character.
With the appearance of Remilia, Sakuya’s adventure was supposed to come to an end, but Remilia’s younger sister “Fran” also makes an appearance as a boss herself.
The addition of Stages 4 & 5 brings this series to a close, and Early Access will now be ending as well. In accordance with the end of Early Access, the price will be changing from the original discounted price of $11.99 to $17.99.
Additionally, updates will continue to roll out after the closing of Early Access, and future updates are set to include the much-requested “Boss Rush Mode”, extra stages, and more.
To commemorate the Ver.1.0 release, we will also be holding a special fan art contest.
