Hope everyone’s enjoying Ten Desires! The replay uploader has now been updated to allow uploads of TH13 replays. Due to the way 10D is currently working however, there are a couple of notes to keep in mind:
We’re getting the gears moving on the patch process as well; we can’t give any kind of date for when it’ll be ready, but we hope to have the game in English for everyone soon!
UPDATE: ZUN has released an update patch for Ten Desires; you can get the patch here. The replay uploader has been updated to show the version of the game for the replay; older versions may or may not work in the patched version of the game. User replays are also working correctly now, so renaming replays should no longer be necessary.
Following the magnitude 8.9 earthquake off the coast of Honshu today and the subsequent damage to the Tokyo Big Sight convention center, the organizers of Reitaisai have announced that the event (which would have taken place tomorrow and included the release of the Touhou 13 demo) has been cancelled. An announcement on the official Reitaisai website states that the organizers are looking at possibly hosting a replacement event in the future, but the timing or even whether such an event will take place are still uncertain.
As to what this means for the release of the Touhou 13 demo, no one is certain. We’ll be keeping an eye on ZUN’s blog and Twitter, and will keep you updated as we get more information. In the meantime, our thoughts go out to the victims of the quake.

It’s Reitaisai season, and we all know what that means: new games.
Yesterday, ZUN officially announced the release of the thirteenth game in the Touhou franchise: 東方神霊廟 ～ Ten Desires. (Hereinafter referred to as TD, I suppose.)
Full translation of ZUN’s blog post:
Touhou Project No. 13: Touhou Shinreibyou ~ Ten Desires.
February went by like a flash.
Well, this year brought us sudden snow and chills as usual, but now I can start to finally feel the first signs of spring.
And so, I’ll be heading to Hakurei Reitaisai once again.
This year’s game will be “Touhou Project #13, Touhou Shinreibyou[Mausoleum of Divine Spirits] ~Ten Desires” (trial version)
