On his blog earlier today, program designer ZUN announced plans for the fifteenth official game in Touhou Project series, entitled 「Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom」. A trial version is expected to be released at this year’s Reitaisai event; taking place on May 10th. The full game will be completed by this summer. Reimu, Marisa, Sanae, and Reisen will all be playable.
Earlier this weekend, Tasogare Frontier updated the official website to 「Touhou Shinkirou ~ Hopeless Masquerade」 (TH13.5) to reveal more playable characters for their upcoming 2D doujin fighter. These include Byakuren Hijiri, Mononobe no Futo, Toyosatomimi no Miko, Nitori Kawashiro, Koishi Komeiji, Mamizou Futatsuiwa, and Hata no Kokoro (available in future patch).
Earlier this weekend, the 14th official game in the Touhou doujin series, entitled 「Touhou Kishinjou ~ Double Dealing Character」, was announced by developer ZUN. As usual, a demo will be released at the next Reitaisai event, (May 26th) — priced at 300 JPY. Reimu, Marisa, and Sakuya (surprisingly) are all confirmed to be playable. No word on when the full version will be available.
Earlier this week, the doujin circle Manpuku Jinja released a new promotional video for the second episode of 「Fantasy Kaleidoscope ~The Memories of Phantasm~」 — a Touhou-based anime series. It promises to feature over 50 characters. The trailer also includes music by Yuuhei Satellite with Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets. It is available for view after the cut.
According to the official website for Anime Weekend Atlanta, Touhou Project creator ZUN will be attending this year’s annual AWA convention. In addition, voice actors Asakawa Yuu and Iwata Mitsuo will also be making a special guest appearance.
A demo of the new collaboration project between Shanghai Alice and Tasogare Frontier, entitled 「Touhou Shinkirou ~ Hopeless Masquerade」 (TH13.5), is now available — with Reimu, Marisa, and Ichirin as playable. You can find download links to the 2D doujin fighter after the cut.
I thought I’d take this moment to go ahead and share with everyone the very environment that I’m exposed to each and every day; as well as a look at how my own personal collection has been turning out as of late.
Typesetter Saito-kun and I wanted to let everyone know that our fansubbing group Moetron-Subs is now celebrating its 3rd year anniversary. We would also like to thank everyone who’ve supported us over the years. New projects are currently underway, so please look forward to it!
Nico Douga user Tsutsumine Akira uploaded this very nicely done MikuMikuDance Touhou video featuring models for Mokou, Tewi, and others that I felt needed to be shared. It also features the song Matryoshka by Vocaloid producer Hachi.
