Touhou 12 announced! [Orange Farm Archive]

ZUN just announced Touhou 12 on his blog a couple days ago. There will be a demo available at Reitaisai 6(that’s March 8th).

The name is 東方星蓮船, or Touhou Seirensen ~ Undefined Fantastic Object. Yay for Touhou UFO. The kanji in the name means Star Lotus Ship.

The story this time is that a UFO comes down to Gensokyo, and being the people they are, our heroes Reimu and Marisa go to investigate and possibly plunder its treasures.

Also confirmed is playable Sanae. Fuck yes.

The new interface looks nice. The game looks a whole lot more bright than Subterranean Animism’s, to be sure.

Old bombing system is back it seems, which is probably a good thing. ZUN said he balanced out the scoring system. He also said this game would be easier than SA(thank God ^^;)

Also, Reimu’s official art looks… dare I say it? Cute. It looks like a step up from what ZUN’s been doing. Then again, he was interviewed in some bar alongside some American otaku doujin artist(Randou House, if anyone’s familiar with the doujinshi circles), so he might have brought him on board to help with the artwork and possibly programming. Who knows?

Each of the three playable characters will have two different fire types, bringing the game to a PCB level of choices.

Look forward to it! Demo out at Reitaisai, and ZUN says the finished version should be during the summer. This probably means at Comiket 76.

    Well, I know what niconico jikkyou player that’ll be ecstatic about a playable Sanae…oh, and about it being easier than Chireiden…thank the gods (yukari?) for that…
