Why not visit Gensokyo? We have:

Long stick

Image
Hyper

Image
Skittle rain

Image
Disco lights

Image
Sharp bois

Image
Goast

Announced today on ZUN's blog. Looks like some animal face pickups that also show up in the lower left. So that's obviously the new mechanic of the game.

I look forward to this one. It's been two years.

Skin color looks straight out of Mountain of Faith. At least the frame has sane colors this time. I like the "disco lights" screenshot, though I guess the game isn't always going to be like that.

How will this game be darker than the other Touhou games, anyway? Because it takes place in Hell? Didn't Subterranean Animism also take place in Hell?

This game sure wants to be Seirensen/Shinreibyou. Hopefully it's more like Seirensen and less like Shinreibyou.

And seeing "Wily" in the title... For some reason it almost made me think of Dr. Wily from Mega Man.

Demo's out!

So, can anyone give a basic rundown of the mechanics?

Well, I tried it and its standard 2hu flair, just dodge, shoot and collect. More importantly, collect the faces (Goast, lol.) and other side pickups on the screen, collect 5 of them and your character will temporarily power up. Once its done, you'll have 2 faces out of your character to pick up. Demo ends at 3 stages.

So this got released. Game's kinda wild, it seems a bit different from previous games. Stage 4 does get quite the difficulty spike (stage 4 itself is the hardest stage in the game) while Extra seems pretty tame.

You can absolutely just pick Otter and use Otter hypers and bombs and mash through the whole game like that. You are allowed to do this. I guess that's why ZUN split the animal types this time. Unfortunately there is no STRONG STYLE that forgoes bombs or something like that, that'd be hype as fuck.

I'd forgotten all about this.

Wonder how long before ZUN 'lets' it be on Steam without translation.

As BulletMagnet posted above, there's already a Steam page, which lists a planned release date of September 9.

In case you've missed, most older Touhous are now on Dlsite, and this one's "coming soon." Probably sooner than Steam. EDIT: Nah, early September

Oh, neat! "Most" might be a bit of a stretch though, the catalog goes back to Ten Desires (Touhou 13), which I think is the same as the Steam selection (and Touhou 12.5 and 12.8 aren't up there... yet?).
