Mima seems likely from the overall characters to appear since ZUN states that the PC-98 crew aren't gone, but he just doesn't know how to add them to the story itself. (Something like that)  :ohdear:
In the same interview, he said that the older characters won't appear in the games. So there's that. Now, you want to talk prophecy, behold:

UFO's final boss will have... strangely coloured hair, unlike any the world has ever seen. Only Yukari will be able to look upon it and recognize it; everyone else will only be able to call it "a colour out of space".

If ZUN said it, I suppose there's no denying it =.= doesn't mean I can't hope, though :)

I suppose in that case, given the current roster and the incident itself...
Maybe a character with some kind of war-like powers?  I'd say "metal" but a gohei is wood and paper, so...
Yeah, war powers.  That's my guess.  With either red or white hair.  And pants.

So DDC is finally completed?

We'll have to wait for Comiket 84 for the release...

cuc: Congrats for the BunBunMaru Modo!
Easy Modo? That's for kids, and for me.

If I could temporarily leave my body as a haunting spirit, I would warp over to Canada and terrorize your home and fridge by eating all your food.

Well my friends planned this holiday trip for a week. Didn't even realize there was Comiket. Oh well, I guess I'll return to the BunBunMaru HQ once I got a nice tan and some (required) rest from life in general. :V

I'm going with either a character based on Issun or that legend about that woman with the bowl over her head for the final boss/EX boss.(Silhouette isn't necessarily final boss, after all.)
We'll see, once the game is released.

Also, cuc, congratulations on the promotion!

In my opinion It's either Issun or, on a wild guess, Kintaro. Plus, if it somehow is Kintaro, then it would at least solve the 'youkai rebellion' part of the incident. (What, with having Mt. Kintoki's animals as his consorts and whatnot.)

I didn't think the game would come out this Comiket, for some reason. It's a pleasant surprise, specially considering that I'm going to meet a bunch of friends of mine that are Touhou fans then~

Some of them want to make a Touhou 14 cosplay group in a few months, I'd like to join so I hope I like some of the new characters... So far I only liked Sekibanki until I realised that her head was flying. I lost most of my lives just because I was freaking out.

They should imo provide standard plugs all around the booths to make people plugin electric fans or something. But I guess the chances of starting a fire or tripping are too major for that.

Nice try, glory hog, but I approached him about it like two or three months ago 8)

Ah, alrighty. I was just talking with Hele a while earlier about nominating him for Spechul and then poof Bunbun, so I assumed my suggestion was related somehow. Either way I think it's pretty much unanimous that he deserves it.

There has actually never been a single case of anyone needing to be rushed to the hospital for heat exhaustion at ANY Comiket, so I imagine everyone is well-prepared on their own.

I don't actually know what the Bunbun title means in this context, but I think we can all agree that Cuc is awesome in some unspecified sense.

People on Bunbunmaru are recognized for their diligence in reporting the news that matters to the Touhou community; doing translations of announcements, updates and events. Cuc's been like a machine where that's concerned, so it fits him well.

Well that is what I noticed at Reitaisai, people were prepared. Many had all sorts of things with them to shade / hydrate etc. Though it still doesn't makes it any more comfortable indoors when you see 80% of the booth owners flapping fans. Not due to medical risks, but just to increase comfort.

Then again, booth space probably is also an issue.

People in the Bunbunmaru News usergroup can makes threads in Front Page Headlines without requiring moderator approval. They might also have Staff Forum access, though I don't remember for sure.

The magazine ASCII Weekly has posted an interview with ZUN. It's a general purpose interview about "indies' games" in Comiket, so there's not much that's especially new. But look, a new DDC screenshot on the middle left (click to enlarge).


The editor says the danmaku in it looks like staff and musical notes.

Someone has scanned the screenshot. I'm on a phone, so I can't post it now, but it's now clear that either the Prismrivers have returned, or we have a new character who uses red octave bullets.

My speculation that DDC Stage 4 will be a PCB Stage 4 homage is gaining weight.

Due the fact that the boss' name isn't shown in the upper-left corner, it is safe to assume its a new boss as you don't see Sekibanki's name or Kagerou's name during their mid-boss fight, where as Cirno's name is visible when you fight her.

Well, the prologue mentions at the end "Discord echoed across Gensokyo", so a music-themed (or sound-themed) boss could make sense.

And the PCB homage is also likely.
