New Scarlet Weather Rhapsody Demo + Release Announcement


Twilight Frontier, makers of Immaterial and Missing Power (in combination with Team Shanghai Alice), have released an official demo for Touhou 10.5: Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, their new fighting game, along with announcing that the full game will be sold on May 25th at Reitaisai 5.

The demo features Reimu, Marisa, Alice and Aya as playable characters as before, three stages to play on, a full menu with configuration and netplay settings, many changed gameplay elements (compared to the older demo from Reitaisai 4) and a three-stage preview of the story mode, played as Reimu and set just prior to the events of the full game.

Since Tasofro’s mirrors are a bit slow (at least for the moment), we’ve got a couple of English mirrors for you to use:

Thanks to furball for translation and to the folks at #iamp and #swr for the use of their mirror.

    A little hard to be sure but that does look like a new character….but it’s also very Reimu-like too

    @Punchless Fairy
    it looks like sanae , but just by a bit. Ireally think it could be a new Character, maybe the last boss? Like Suika in IaMP, So that would be SWR’s Suika. I’d like to see Sanae Fight hehe, we can have 2 Brawling Armpit Mikos ^^

    Obviously, the final boss is a new character.

    Mima or Yuka need to be in it somewhere. Please. T_T

    So what’s different in this demo compared to the other one (gameplay-wise)?

    I’m just hoping for some Imperishable Night characters.

    Updates in the demo are nice, though it’s a shame they took out some spell cards to make way for the bombs.

    the mestirious sillouete char looks kinda like she has doggy ears under her ribbons(or rather, ribbons on her doggy ears) she apears to be wearing a dubble layer dress, and I thiink she has a tail
    she’s either a dog, a cat, or a TANUKIE

    Strange that there is no info about the number of returning and new characters, when there’s only a month to go. I just hope they add someone more beside Aya and the new boss.

    ..Seriously though, if Kaguya’s in and that’s one of her spellcards, I swear I’ll master her playstyle. For the lulz!!

    I cut out the silhouette of the cover character. You can use it for graphic design or whatever you like.

  19. May 24th, 2008 | 3:22 pm

    So, so far we got komachi, reisen, aya, and pretty much iamp with no china again
