Maybe this is the sign the return of the infamous blue lawn knome?

Twilight Frontier has announced their Comiket 84 work, which is exactly what you may expect: the soundtrack CD to HM, titled "Dark Noh Collection: Shinkirou" (pronunciation: Ankoku Nougaku Shuu: Shinkirou), with a price of 1000 yen.

http://www.tasofro.net/touhou135/cd.html (Click for cover art.)

Disc 1 contains every track from the game. Disc 2, judging from the tracklist, entirely consists of unused tracks, arrangements, and long versions of songs.

Quick translation of Disc 2 tracklist:

01. Shinkirou Festival Orchestra
02. Select Performer
03. An Unused Location
04. - 13. "Popularity Boom" tracks for each character
14. Last Word Unleashed
15. Officially-Sanctioned Tasogare Newspaper
16. The Lost Emotion (Arrange Version)

Track 01-03, 14, 15 composed by Akiyama U2
Track 04-13, 16 composed by ZUN, arranged by Akiyama U2

Huh, I hadn't paid enough attention to notice U2 did all the work on HM. What happened to NKZ?
[22:40:12] <Drake> "guys i donwloaded esod but its not workan"
[22:40:21] <Drake> REPORTED
[22:40:25] <NaturallyOccurringChoja> PROBATED
[22:40:30] <Drake> ORGASM
[22:40:32] <NaturallyOccurringChoja> FUCK YEAH

[22:28:39] <Edible> Mafia would be a much easier game if we were playing "spot the asshole"

U2 has been doing all the music since SWR. I have no idea why NKZ no longer works as a musician on official games, but he certainly haven't disappeared.

According to U2's tweets, some of the songs in the OST will be included in the game - through patches, I guess. So it turns out even HM's music was unfinished.

Sorry, I haven't written it.

Nice, I was waiting for this. I would like to buy the OST somewhere. Maybe I can ask someone who is going to Japan within a few weeks and is going to Comiket. :V

I suppose those "popularity boom" mixes are sped-up versions of the originals or something.

Does that imply that the music is supposed to change when you reach max popularity?

Seems like it. That'll make the match even more intense and lively, and there's a "Fatal KO"-esque music too for the Last Word(hope it's nothing cheesy). All the new ones are composed by U2 though.
I'm actually looking forward to this patch more than Kokoro, though I think they'll bundle it together. But I still want new skills and spellcard.

Now time to guess who the final/Extra boss it is!

She seems to be shorter than usual, as her feet only reach down half of the jewel case....
Maybe she's just sitting with her knees pulled up?

Like this? (I apologize for my horrible MS Paint edit)

I hope I'm not the only one who saw the new title and was wondering is ZUN was doing the music for the next Harvest Moon game.

Mushroom head. Cloakish clothing. As usual, ZUN knows how to make it impossible to guess.

Unfortunately I won't be around on time to discover any of it as during the release of DDC, I'll be on holiday orz

This thread should be a sticky IMO.

ZUN has updated his official site with DDC's web demo download and game manual.
Where on the page is it? I'd try to google translate my way through, but the text all displays as satanic hieroglyphics.

It's pointlessly complicated, really. And the manual is no good either.

I think your link is broken. They're both on the wiki anyway.

As for the manual, most of the important stuff is in the in-game manual, which incidentally remains partially untranscribed on the wiki.

Come to think of it, Little Red Riding Hood was foreshadowed in Forbidden Scrollery. Marisa made a joke about how the fairy tale was teaching us how to exterminate her.

I hope the tail-thingy will be like that for zuns character in the game. It looks really interesting/cool/whatever.
It could still be that the legs are bent upwards though, like in the red riding hood picture (which I would probably prefer, kind of like Yukari does it).

So I looked at the higher-res cover picture on the wiki, and I've got some ideas as to what our mystery maiden might look like.
Done in MS Paint, again. Click on it for fullview so you can actually read my crappy handwriting.

A reminder: the store websites should be updated with the larger cover art of DDC on July 26, while the official release day of WaHH Vol. 3 is July 27.

This is what the special edition book and its box look like:



Here's something interesting: Japanese fans have been comparing DDC's premise with Fujita Kazuhiro's manga "Moonlight Act", where the once-in-decades blue moonlight can make fairy tale characters turn violent, and in worse cases destroy the original tales in the process.

At first I didn't find it very relevant. But it has been pointed out that when Fujita was featured in NHK's TV programme "RenMan!", which pits two mangakas together to draw a relay manga, ZUN was very excited about it, meaning he thinks highly of Fujita, so he's likely to have at least heard of the premise of "Moonlight Act".

I like the right book art cover, Kasen scolding three girls. Also it says "premium figure" on the front. Is it the Kasen figure we've seen before?

Yes, the reason Vol. 3 is published later than usual is because they are doing this figurine bundle release.

Actually, there's (supposedly) already a leaked image of the last boss. A friend of mine sent me this link on skype earlier today. Dunno where it comes from though, so it could just be a hoax; potential spoilers though.
