Valkyrie of Phantasm  Aerial Action Touhou Project Derivative Work  Coming Soon to Steam’s Early Access

PLAYISM is proud to announce Valkyrie of Phantasm’s imminent

introduction to Steam’s Early Access on 23rd October, 2022. This is a new entry featuring action

packed airborne battles brought to you by Touhou Sky Arena developers Area-ZERO.

High-Speed Aerial Combat Project!

Soar through the skies freely, dodge a rain of enemy fire gracefully, and counter with a variety of dazzling spells in Valkyrie of Phantasm, Area-ZERO’s (Touhou Sky Arena) latest Touhou Derivative Project that’s faster and more thrilling than anything before.


The playable demo will be showcased at the PLAYISM booth throughout Tokyo Game Show 2022. Those who drop by and play the demo will also receive an original clear folder designed specifically for the event. *While stocks last

PLAYISM booth location: 1-C03


A meteorite suddenly falls to Gensokyo.

A crack appears in its golden, egg-like surface, and small droplets of light emanate from the inside,

which then scatter in all directions.

Eventually, they arrive in the hands of Gensokyo's most powerful.


One of these lights reaches Reimu Hakurei. It surrounds her, transforming into what looks like a suit of armor.

A name echoes in her head, and she proclaims.

“A Valkyrie Arm...”

Sensing the beginnings of an incident, she sighs and looks off in the direction the light came from.

She floats up and into the air—and a moment later she's already gone, leaving naught behind but a

thin red trail.


“My body feels so light...”

Soaring faster than ever before, Reimu realizes her armor—her Valkyrie Arm—is to thank for her newfound speed.

Who gave her this power, and for what purpose? Reimu hastens to find the cause of all this.

But it doesn't take long before someone stands in her way.


“It looks like I'm not the only one.”


Before Reimu is another girl, similarly clad in a Valkyrie Arm. Each of them now possesses the same power, and inevitably...

...a high-speed danmaku battle begins.
