Release date delayed to accommodate Switch release.

Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle

Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle will launch for Switch in addition to the previously announced PlayStation 4 and PS Vita versions, publisher NIS America announced.

The Switch version, like the PlayStation 4 version of the game, will be a physical and digital release, while the PS Vita version will be a digital-only release.

To “accommodate launching on the additional platform,” Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle has been delayed from its previously announced July release date to September 5 in North America and September 8 in Europe.

Here’s an overview of the title, via NIS America:
