Reitaisai 5 Releases

It’s that time of year again— Reitaisai Season.

Seems everyone’s releasing something this year; it’s the first time Reitaisai is going to be at the Big Sight. A much larger venue than last year’s means an overwhelming increase in participation.


First off, we have the two biggies:

Twilight Frontier has announced the release of Touhou 10.5: Scarlet Weather Rhapsody. You can read more about the release announcement here.

Team Shanghai Alice has announced plans to release a demo of Touhou Chireiten~ Subterranean Animism, the 11th game in the Touhou canon. You can read more about this here.

Finally, on the doujin game front, the final version of Marisa & Alice (Mariari) will be released by Desunoya.

Comiket 73 Music

It’s nearly time for Comiket again, with Winter Comiket due to run from December 29th through 31st.

We’ve been keeping an eye out for a few weeks, and have managed to line up what we think should be some pretty awesome releases.

First and foremost, ZUN himself has announced two CD releases: Akyu’s Untouched Score vol. 4 and 5.
