Touhou Azure Trilogy is a fighting video game (based on its elements from the Touhou fighting video games) in the Touhou series. This fighting game is for the PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One. This fighting video game has been released on November 1, 2019.


The gameplay of Touhou Azure Trilogy is similar to that of the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise and Bandai Namco's Dragon Ball FighterZ. Using Spell cards act in the same behavior as super attacks. Up to two players can now battle it out by using more than one character. During gameplay from other fighting games in the Touhou series, it has a new feature called "Azure Rage". It is a new power-up where it boosts the player's attack and defense power for a short amount of time. It also enhances all of the special moves and Spell Cards, too. In Story Mode, the player can battle throughout the land of Gensokyo, completing the chapters and defeating the corrupted Angel herself, Faye (who appears from the MMORPG game, League of Angels III) who holds the Scarlet Crystal that turns her into a corrupted version of Bartoli, making it one of the two transformations as the final boss. When defeating Bartoli, Konngara will appear in front of her and try to remove the Scarlet Crystal from her in order to prevent further corruption, but immediately fails as the permanent transformation rages as Bartoli threatens to use the "Scarlet Prison" signature move as a spell card to trap Konngara and absorb her to become even stronger than ever, whom Reimu and Marisa (in their Princess forms) must defeat. In Arcade Mode, the player can battle through eight stages, with Yukkuri Reimu serving as the sub-boss of the ninth stage and corrupted versions of Faye and Bartoli, with Konngara serving as Faye's partner on the tenth and final stage. This mode features the ranking meter. Winning a round raises the grade by 0.2 (0.4 upon delivering the final blow to an opponent using a Spell Card, 0.6 upon finishing a round in 60 seconds or less, 0.8 upon either getting a first attack or a perfect win and 1.0 upon getting a first attack and a perfect win). Only the highest ranking level gets shown. Players can still continue upon losing, but the ranking lowers by 0.5, any consecutive continues upon losing lowers the ranking by 1.0. This ranking meter varies the grade level as it follows upon the completion of Arcade mode: E (0.2-1.0) → D (1.1-2.0) → C (2.1-3.0) → B (3.1-4.0) → A (4.1-5.0) → One Star (5.1-6.0) → Two Stars (6.1-7.0) → Three Stars (7.1-8.0) → Rainbow Star (8.1-9.0). In Versus Mode, players can battle it out in 1-3 on 1-3 battles. The player can even battle the computer player and watch two computer players go head-to-head. In Ghost Battle, the player can defeat many Ghost characters to unlock various items or Gensokyo coins to spend at the shop. In Training mode, the player can freely practice combos against an AI-Controlled Computer player, and also complete training missions in that mode. In Online Mode, an internet connection and a Nintendo Online Membership card are both required for players to play online.
