Can't say that I'm a big fan of the fighting games. The sprites have changed style too. I'm not sure if it's an improvement.
Never did well in the fighting games, but I'm still excited. Religious wars are go!

Oh. My body is SO ready for this.
Holy god damn, those sprites suit Touhou like a hole in the head. It looks like a fucking fan game.
I wonder if Sanae's going to be the main character again.

Seriously this will go one of two ways: Great or Horrible.

What, would you prefer the infamous zombie Reimu? The at-times blobby limbs and faces? The inconsistent character heights and bust sizes?

I like the look of the sprites. They look... polished. Professionally made. Good. You must be like one of those guys who defends DOTA2 for "keeping all the quirks and tricks of the old", not "intentionally recreating all idiosyncrasies and bugs of the WC3 engine because of nostalgia".

I will say that the UI doesn't appeal to me though. The font being used for the English names and the "yes", "no", and "neither" (whatever those mean) looks like it came straight out of Microsoft Word. That should be changed.
What? We're talking about fighter sprites, not ZUN art.

So am I. Precisely what kind of sprite "suits Touhou", then? If you ask me the old sprites were kind of unpolished; these look good. Unless you're into pixelation.
Playing Touhou for the art is like is like playing Call of Duty for its deep, symbolic story.

Get hyped.
I doubt it'd change the actual character art, though i wonder if Alphes will have permission to actually give characters curves or not.
The SWR sprites and stuff. They're distinctive and bursting with character.
This. That third picture on Tasofro's website shows Reimu with a distinctive ZUN face, which is far from optimal.
Don't know man.
The portraits look fine to me. Definitely not ZUN art there.

I believe he meant Reimu's face on the character model.

So... anyone else think that the upcoming holy war will be our last, best hope of getting Mima back? She is the most likely candidate for god of the Hakurei Shrine.
File 135166664190.jpg - (569.19KB, 1024x1024, 2728f95868ebf9d38ca0f737aa74be88.jpg) [iqdb]

As much as I would enjoy that, I reluctantly must disagree.

Hakurei Border also, remember?
Mima confirmed to fight Yukari for resident power figure at the Hakurei Shrine?
Mima confirmed for never appearing again

Nobody worships Yukari, and she's not seeking to get worshiped. Becoming a god would limit both her power and how she could use it.

I'm not impressed. Free flight all the time almost never works for fighters, and the animation is as big a step down from the previous fighters as the sprites.
I don't think the animation looks bad actually. I'm skeptical about the free flight as well, however.
hard to tell if that's the final thing or not but last time I checked there wasn't a great focus on animation in the past fighting games.

Though I can imagine other fighting game fans being unhappy with having to learn entirely new stuff.
Oh, it doesn't look BAD, it just looks...dull. Soulless.

>last time I checked there wasn't a great focus on animation in the past fighting games
I don't understand.
What... the hell. That free flight seems to ruin the pacing of a fighting game. And where's all those over-the-top special moves? Maybe it's still too early for them to add (or maybe their keeping us in the dark about that aspect), but I hope this isn't what they plan to release for the complete version.
I wasn't in love with the previous sprite style truth be told. It got the job done but I didn't think it great. So this is just different rather than better or worse. Neither has real character as far as I see it (often the case with doujin fighting games) so calling it soulless is a bit of a stretch, I think. This time around it looks a bit more fluid as well, so that might be good if the mechanics work out.
I'm liking it. It looks natural and it flows really well. I mean, if they were fighting with cards, I imagine it'd look like that.
It does look a little dull. It needs more lasers and spells going off. How can we dodge bullets if there aren't enough on the screen?
I imagine the "trailer" was using a demo build and such. That and in recollection, specials in Touhou fighting games weren't really that crazy, though some of the supers would qualify.

That and I think it was advertising the demo, not the full game.

I agree, and there's the fact what we saw was likely a beta build, not something complete.
The flight thing to me seems like it might be pretty hard to use in an actual fighting game, but I'll wait and see.

The Characters sprites, in my personal opinon, have a more classical feel to them, like something out of an old arcade game. I like em

Anybody else happen to hear that Music? it sounded su-weet!
The more I see of this, the more it looks like just another fangame, and not a particularly great one.

A Video I found, has a couple of supers in effect and it appears the character's remaining life functions as a super meter.
Those background characters make me rock hard.

and the previous fighters didn't? The fighting games are basically officially endorsed fangames (as it's Tasafro that does the programming/etc, ZUN just writes the story/dialogue)

Are the fighting games supposed to be canon?
If they weren't, we wouldn't have Suika, Tenshi and Iku.
And that would be terrible.

Look at all dem nameless mooks. I'm glad we've got some faced villagers now. Hope to see them show up in doujins in the future.
Not to glad about the reminder that Keine is actually flat, though. Especially with actual titty monsters Yuugi and Eirin in the same shot...not to mention the waitress villager. Grrrgh...
Blame ZUN as I'd imagine he'd have some reason to have against having Keine be a hot teacher. I'm surprised Alphes was able to get away giving some characters curves in the first place.
>Rinnosuke is not the only male in Gensokyo now
He never was.

It is time.
Sauce faggit.
I need proof before I believe something this good.
Never mind. Sauce has been found:

Scroll to the bottom. I'm guessing new characters each day till launch?
Well, it was obvious she would appear in a game based on religious wars. Doesn't make it any less exciting to know though.

But what's up with that coolie hat? Is that Byakuren's attempt at following the Gensokyan tradition of wearing silly hats or what?
I guess Alphes' into obvious colored eyebrows now, possibly some sort of odd Street Fighter reference but an odd turn regardless.
I bet silver against gold that Miko won't be a playable character and neither will kanako.
I actually think it's her scroll. Notice how it curves around her body and ends up in her other hand.
I thought it was an orange...
Your's makes much more sense.
Why does Alphes's arms look so bad now? They are like SA Satori's T-rex stubs.

No, seriously, the art quality o the arms DECREASED from 12.3. Why?
It's not the arms per se, but a combination of giant heads, stubby wrists and shitty hands.

At least he's consistent.

Correct, but ZUN still used her name.

"China" is more or less the same. "Haha I can't remember her name either so I've called her China before". Doesn't quite make it canon.

Newcomer: Nitori

She's a Space Cop In 3D.

Also, looks like Moriya Shrine's not participating. They're all in the background for Youkai Mountain.
Well, fuck. She was the one I was least expecting to appear in the game. ZUN never ceases to surprise me.

>Also, looks like Moriya Shrine's not participating. They're all in the background for Youkai Mountain.
I think it's too early to suppose this; for all we know, some background characters might be playable too. Honestly, I cannot imagine a war to recollect faith in Gensokyo without the Moriyas butting in.

I am so fucking stoked right now.
too soon to say but Nitori was unexpected. Here's hoping Wriggle makes it in.
Where did you guys get that in the background = not playable?
Common sense.
that's something to be decided upon a full roster, that and I remember in Fatal Fury two that a couple of playable characters showed up in the background of Andy Bogard's stage (Terry and Mai depending on if one of them is fighting or not)

Besides, Suwako proved that gods can create multiple copies of themselves, so she and Kanako can literally can watch themselves kick ass and take names.

Well played, Tasofro. Well played.
Of all the 2hos related to religion, and ZUN had to pick Koishi? What the hell?

Well, I'm not complaining. It's going to be interesting to watch our little satori spreading love and pain in this war for faith.

Truly the greatest decision of all time.
I read a comment in Danbooru that claims Tasofro said that "after Koishi there won't be any returning characters". Can anyone confirm (or hopefully disprove) this?
Confirmed by IRC translators. No more announcements, but there should be at least one new demo video.

Some guy on facebook is claiming that he looked through the executable of the web demo and got the playable characters from that. This was in June, and he got Nitori and Koishi right, so it's probably legit. The last character, according to him, will be Mamizou.

There might be new characters as well. I don't know how he was looking, but his method could have skipped over those entirely.
dunno if that's true, it'd be a giga-troll to various fans.

But yeah Koishi is an oddball among oddballs, considering her involvement is likely because it amused her.
This is so stupid. How the flying fuck do you make a game based around religion and gathering faith and not include the religious faction focused on gathering faith? Are we next going to have a vampire invasion without a peep from SDM or a Moon-based game without any Eientei? Fucking retarded.
Something tells me they're not going to partake directly in the war, but actually they'll be collecting faith behind everybody's backs while the other factions are busy fighting among themselves. That's their style, after all.

So in other words, they'll be the unplayable Boss characters.
It's pretty odd how Sanae seems to be getting bus trips for this and TH14.

That and it's even more outrageous that while a couple of unrelated characters (Nitori and Koishi) are playable, anyone from the faction who's been done to do crazy shit to gather faith isn't. Even Aya and/or Hatate showing up would make more sense (Incident=news).

This seems a major 180 on the hyping of Sanae as a chronic incident resolver.

Time to make a bunker for the shit that's going to go down if this holds to be true.

To be fair, the Moriya Shrine's ideology is mostly "'worship' those goddesses who are clearly visible through your own methods and good things will happen." Which does not really put them at odds with any of the fighting factions.
they also are very fond of stunts to gather faith.

SA was the result of such a stunt and another had Kanako try to make a dam with Kappa labor. Histensoku was Suwako's faith gathering project. There's Kanako attempt to make a sky trolley (the plan is to have humans get to the shrine easier)

One could see Sanae's adventures in UFO and TD as such.

SoPM shows that while Kanako and Miko got along rather well, the same couldn't be said of her interactions with Byakuren.

It'd be unlike the shrine, particularly Sanae to pass up such a ripe opportunity. Sanae is usually prone to doing rash actions (one of which provoked Reimu leading to the battles of MoF)
"We shall gather faith by not causing a ruckus in the middle of town. Unlike a certain group of ruffians."
People seem really bent out of shape about the missing MoF crew. Is it really that important for them to show up here?
Byakuren is the only one who openly condones—more so, promotes—the youkai domination of humans. This is something she has already taken to the next step when she went around claiming being a youkai exterminator while secretly supporting the side she was supposed to, well, exterminate. Since her release, all Byakuren has done is resume her ancient agenda, only this time, with the merit of hindsight, she is taking greater care about it.

Contrasted to Miko—who wants supremacy for humans (the natural course)—and Kanako—who desires a reasonable balance (equality)—Byakuren is a racialist youkai despot waiting to happen. She has little reason to trust, or indeed love, mankind; moreover, she has already betrayed it once. Her good-natured sheep’s clothing is nothing but clever disguise. Stay out of her net.

Irrelevant tangent: The sad part is, human life is probably STILL worth more under that scenario than in most countries.
considering they're known for faith gathering stunts and this whole melee is one massive faith gathering stunt, it'd make perfect sense for Sanae at least to butt in. That and the fact she went about butting into some incidents makes her omission raise some questions.

It'd make more sense for Sanae to be in it than Nitori (Shy people aren't the sort to go charging into a melee)

No Moriya folks in this is like TD (A game dealing with spirits) without Youmu and Yuyuko.

On a side note: What if the thing that got Tenshi's attention was the final battles of MoF? That'd be another notch on "things the Moriya shrine somehow started if unwittingly" It's related as SWR's weather muckery was noted to wreak havoc on the crops that year, and thus likely a factor in this incident.

You seem to overlook the fact that Miko's content to train until the humans demand her leadership. Though i presume with this incident she felt fit to display her power for the masses.

Though I wonder if there'll be some sort of message about the nature of some incidents as some of them seriously affected other things while others were minor.
>It'd make more sense for Sanae to be in it than Nitori (Shy people aren't the sort to go charging into a melee)
>No Moriya folks in this is like TD (A game dealing with spirits) without Youmu and Yuyuko.

What if the Moriya folks are secretly the reason Nitori charging into a melee? You think it's just coincidence that the one faction that's apparently sitting this fight out also happens to be the one faction that owns a lot of stuff that just about any kappa would do anything to get a hold of?
Not exactly clever unless they're counting on people assuming "They'd never be STUPID enough to do something so obvious" as the Moriyas would be the prime suspect upon seeing a Kappa butt into this.

And another thing...
Waiiiit. New toohoo?
Well yeah. New games, new Touhous.

Name's "Hata no Kokoro", from my limited moonspeak, it means "Flag/fabric of the heart".

And the mask, the game is called Hopeless Masquerade after all.
According to NicoNico streams going on *right now*, her name is... Hata no Kokoro. Her playstyle involves the masks that revolve around her.

It's like ZUN just played Majora's Mask this year, hahaha.
Beat me to it!
Some notes from what I've seen on streams:
Byakuren- boobs, bounce, nuff said.
Koishi: Cute victory animation.
Miko: 2nd Coolest cape in Gensokyo.

The final boss has some interesting attacks, such as what appears to be a shark dive.
Second coolest cape?

Get on irc and fight with us.

Now I just have to figure what the fuck is wrong with Koishi and how to play her. It seems like she takes my inputs as 'suggestions' more than orders.
She's super buggy. Watch the vine move.
From what I have figured out, you change the 3 symbols in the lower corner with certain buttons. One for meele focus (red), one for range (blue) and one for I dont know (green). If you hold the keys turnin them on(they stop flickering) or activate multiple at once, Koishi will sometimes act on her own and do some attacks once the enemy gets too close. Depending on which symbol/s are active her moveset and bullets change.

The Something Awful goons translated each character's profile, with explanations for their special skills. Your description is mostly accurate, but have this anyway.

Special Skill: Super Reflexes
When the command for heavy melee attacks, heavy projectile attacks and special moves are entered, the move is "set" and will activate automatically when certain conditions are fulfilled such as enemy placement or passage of time. One of each of the three attacks can be set at a time, and an icon will indicate when a move is prepared.
each attack has a specific condition (distance, direction the enemy is in) it needs to activate. Green is for specials. Some specials activate instantly.

Patch 1.30 added one new skill and one new spellcard for every character except Kokoro (who already had three spellcards).

And you should go see Mamizou's new spellcard. Results are hilarious. Pic related.
is there an english patch ?
Yep. It's floating around Shrinemaiden right now.
Oh? I thought work was given up due to the how speech bubbles were and such.
