Topic: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

http://www.tasofro.net/touhou135/

Something about the religions of Gensokyo. So I guess it's religious warfare?

Seems like it's a danmaku game but of a different flavor.

I think It is alphes. I can recognize his/her work anywhere. (...Creepy I know.)

Can't wait for more news.

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

Notice how the background changes according to the position of the characters. OH SHIT 3D

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

Quoting a post over from Lunatic Red-


Touhou Shinkirou - Hopeless Masquerade -


Frequent cataclysms, the terror of disasters that cannot be opposed...


This flooded humanity with despair and pessimism. Amongst their communities, a heavy atmosphere swirled about.


But even so, it was not despair. Rather, something closer to the feeling of inescapability that humanity's future would not change.


"Why not!?"


Apparently, someone had spit those words out, as I felt those words barely come into audibility.


That's right.


If nothing is to change, can't I do anything I want?


That's right.


Isn't it fine if I live moment to moment?


One by one, the emotions of the people in the community were released, and simultaneously, order fell into ruin. There were people who looked at the situation from a different viewpoint.


They were practitioners of religion.


These religionists thought to grasp the chaotic hearts of the populace. Because it was a good opportunity to gather people to their respective agreements even as they took back order.


Monks who built temples in Gensoukyou, Taoists who sought to leave behind the secular world and achieve immortality...


And the priestesses who sought to be restored to their rightful seat.


These women resolved themselves.


That these were their respective 'entrances'.


Now, let each of them, wielding their faith as their armament, fight with grace and splendour, stealing popularity and reputation from one another!


In before OMG SHINKI'S COMING BACK CUZ HER NAME'S IN THE TITLE AND SHE'S A GOD TOO YOU GUYS


In all seriousness though, I wonder how someone like ZUN would handle a religious war, since those tend to get pretty nasty when you get down to it.

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

OH YEAH! Finally a new fighter I can't wait!

Probably arguing, beating each other up then settling it over a cup of tea or some sake.


Opens up quite a few possibilities for playable characters though. Byakuren, Miko, Shou, Kanako, Seiga, possibly even Kasen. Going to be interesting how they handle the roster, having enough characters to fit with the religious war theme while still squeezing in a few fan favourites like Alice and Sakuya.

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

Religious warfare seemed to be a given to be honest, I knew the Byakuren vs Miko rivalry wouldn't drop, and Reimu and Sanae's shrines can still join in on it all. Naturally it's going to feature a lot of UFO and TD.

Also obligatory.

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

yay

hoping for some cool songs like Broken Moon or Magus Night

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

Oh wow...a new Touhou fighting game.  I can't wait.

I dunno about Sakuya. She stated she doesn't believe in gods, so where would she stand in this?


Maybe Alice can still get in as a striker or something, but now I'm just throwing a dart in a windstorm. I would like to see Kanako or Byakuren fighting, though.

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

Damn the story look so GREAT, now waiting for some awesome piece of music from teh god.

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

Welp, here we go for another round.

No Parsee no download.

No Nitori no download.

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

Huh...so I guess Byakuran and Miko gonna come back..I wouldnt be suprised if Miko will be there, it seems the events of touhou 13 WOULD trigger something about Miko and Byakuran.
and well, I think we might see some non religious character, seeing as marisa there...I mean, does she even worship anyone beside the gods of stealing and master sparks? XP
I DO hope to see byakuran and Miko and...Ta-ta-da! a new character too! big_smile (even if it'll be another catfish or whatever!)

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

I sure hope that all the characters from Soku will stay :x Though the chances aren't high, since this isn't in the same line as SWR -> Soku.

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

Awesome a new Touhou game! I expected a game that focused around religions honestly, with all of the sudden religious happenings in the games recently. Like everybody else said it'll be cool to see some new playable characters like Byakuren, Miko, and Kasen. The in game sprites look really good as well as the backgrounds.

I think they could still fit her in, especially with how easy it is to start a fight in Gensokyo.

"I don't believe in gods."
"HOW DARE YOU, WE FIGHT NOW!"

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

Well, glad to see a new game but I didn't expect it to be a fighting game! maybe it's still early for that but anyway..
The "13.5" is obviously means that the events take place not too far from Ten Desires and it's a religious war? then Byakuren and Miko shall appear.. I might be wrong but that's what I believe..

The screenshots showing only Reimu and Marisa, so we don't know any other characters for now.. But there's a high possibility that new characters will be introduced in this game like Tenshi and Iku..

Well, these are the characters that I think they'll be playable besides Reimu and Marisa:
Byakuren, Shou, Kogasa, Nue, Miko, Futo, Tojiko, Yukari, Suwako, Utsuho (not sure but something will lead things to the Nuclear furnace and...) and new characters.. Maybe it's time for Flandre to appear again (Yes, she's not related to the events but that would be great smile )

Most of danmaku fights caused by such things. big_smile

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

ALL OF MY YES. Was kinda hoping a new Touhou fighting game would be released soon. Totally on board with the new artwork as well. Just need a list of playables then the impatient waiting begins D:

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

ZUN has stated before that he couldn't add many final bosses to the figher games because he feel like they would bee to OP. They would be too powerful. So I don't think there will be a lot of the harder bosses, but definitively a lot of mid bosses.

Re: Touhou 13.5: Hopeless Masquerade

different sprite style + 3D stages?
I like.
