Kinda surprised nobody's posted this one here yet, but a few days back ZUN announced the next mainline Touhou title - not too many details yet, but it's due out in May and will have a Reitaisai demo later this month. I'm also taking it upon myself to give it the "Weirdest Subtitle So Far" award for the series.

Sounds like this will be the first Touhou game to include a scathing critique of modern day capitalist societies.

I just knew there would be a new Touhou every two years. It’s good to see you again, Reimu and Marisa.

Somehow I'm guessing you haven't read too much Touhou dialogue if you think they haven't been doing that already. :p

Did you ever hear the Tragedy of Zun the Drunk? I thought not. It's not a story the Gaijin would tell you. It's a Weeb legend. Zun was a Dark Lord of the Drink, so powerful and so wise he could use the booze to influence the code to create a good shmup... He had such a knowledge of the shooting games that he could even make several good sequels. The dark side of the Booze is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, his creations became greater than his own designs for them, then his followers bastardized his work and made it look really bad by comparison. It's ironic he could break through mediocrity at first, but that he spawned an endless void of it, which consumed him as well.

Because I knew they’d come back. There will always be a new Touhou every two years.

I would have thought it was a parody if I heard it anywhere else.

Don't tell me you memorized their birthdays like Heart Aino's. Why can't you memorize the birthdays of real women like Chun Li? ;)

Because they both star a nearly all-female cast?

No, there is literally no difference. Wake up. Open your eyes. Also Zun is Ellinor Waizen.

Haha, I love how ZUN left no room for nuance there and straight up defined a capitalistic society.

Anyway, more Touhou = more fun! And they’re more accessible than ever ever since they’re getting Steam releases.

I feel like this is gonna have degenerate item spam like 14.3 did. Alternatively, please don't add 20,000,000 subtypes to the game, ZUN, sir...

Quote:
Aside from collecting powers through the story, players can purchase them from an in-game shop.

nooooooooooooo

Well actually wait that makes this sound like a Fantasy Zone-type system. That would be fine. Just no permanent upgrades like Len'en 04, please. I don't see a "Shop" button on the main menu, so... hopefully...?

Well actually wait even if it was a Len'en 04 type system, I could just have "no upgrades" and "upgrades" like Len'en 04 does. Although Len'en 04 is super dumb if you try to play it without upgrades, but also super dumb if you do, that would still be fine. Hell, even with a Fantasy Zone-type system, I still could, maybe...

Hm. We shall see...

Seems that's more or less confirmed for this latest one, as the Shmups Twitter notes that there's a SteamDB listing for a demo. Also links to a demo playthrough.
