It's a japanese roguelike influenced by Mystery Dungeon in the combats, but in the end falls short to meet expectations.

Unfortunately, it seems to be spread a little thin and it makes a huge sacrifice to the narrative that its cute enemies can't quite make up for. It's still a good roguelike by any measure of the imagination, and the developers clearly know what they're doing. However, the good stuff is a little too easily obscured by the frustration that can pile on after you've been whacking away for hours. If you have the patience and a relationship with Touhou Project, then this is undoubtedly a good buy. If this will be your first introduction to either roguelikes or the Touhou girls, you may want to start with smaller prey.

Overwhelming for newcomers and probably too generic for genre aficionados, Touhou Gensou Wanderer Reloaded is difficult to recommend to all but die-hard series fans. The beautiful hand-drawn presentation and high production values are hindered severely by a contrived and intrusive interface, unimportant dialogue with very little character development and derivative mechanics. It certainly looks the part, but there are more fun and interesting adventure roguelikes such as Crypt Of The Necrodancer on the eShop right now.

Touhou Genso Wanderer Reloaded lands on the Nintendo Switch with a formula that joins a dungeon crawler to a roguelike and the result is quite enjoyable for the fans of the Touhou series, though less so for newcomers. The exploration is challenging, with an immense amount of weapons and objects to find but the combats feel repetitive, the procedurally-generated dungeons can be too difficult and the plot is not as involving as it should be. The dedicated and patient ones will be rewarded, less versed players will be put off.
