Touhou 14 was just announced on ZUN's blog. http://kourindou.exblog.jp/20469044/ <Ruro> I'm taking over this post from here on out to post in updated information, tyvm Ruka
Edit: <Ruka>You're welcome.
Below is the blog entry in question, translated courtesy of this feller right here
, and posted here for all to see.
(5/11: edited slightly for nuance and one minor error.)
The game to be released on 5/26 is the following.
Touhou Project 14
The playable demo for "Touhou Kishinjou ~ Double Dealing Character" will be released. As usual, it'll be playable up to stage 3.
The theme I went for this time was "Neither novel or retro, a 2000's neo-retro danmaku shooter
". So basically it's the usual where I went for a simple to enjoy game, but I tried removing a lot of the complicated game mechanics.
The general synopsis is as follows:
Reimu, Marisa, and Sakuya's individual weapons have suddenly started acting on their own. On top of that, the Youkai who are usually quiet and subdued have suddenly started rebelling. Will the three oppose their own weapons or abandon them?
And that's the lowdown of the story. Anyway, the three playable characters will be Reimu, Marisa, and Sakuya.*Screenshots are a work in progress and are liable to change at any time.
Wow, time flies by! This is the 14 installment in the main line of games, though I guess it's like 21 if we include the side-games as well.
This time, I've doubled the resolution of the game. However, I haven't increased the game window size. That being said, players can continue playing with the familiar window size but with higher game resolution. If you own a respectable computer, you should be able to play at 1280x960.
The disk will cost 300 yen.
If you are attending Reitaisai, please feel free to drop by the "Shanghai Alice Gakuendan" booth.
Oh, and if you're wondering the other title will be available at the Twilight Frontier's booth.
Touhou Project 13.5
"Touhou Shinkirou ~ Hopeless Masquerade"
But of course, do drop by my booth as well!
