This game is the Virtual-On-style fighter:

All the Touhou games that come to console are the spin-offs.

Huh kind of a shame, I'd much prefer that insane vertically scrolling bullet hell game than this apparant spin off. Oh well, I hope its intended audience has a good time with this. I'm sure Switch will get a few shmup games eventually.
