Yeah these seem like debug codes not meant to be used by anybody but Zun but why remove them when the conditions are so obscure.

Yeah, the codes are 100% gamedev bullshit left in. I love stuff like this cause you can really pick up the personality of the programmers leave on their work, which is not something you pick up a lot in games directly like you can with writing, music, art. This is kind of a moot point for Touhou though, for obvious reasons.

tbf a lot of cheat codes are really this. like the Konami code originally existing just so the devs could actually reasonably test Contra

Apparently it has the same English translation as the Steam version, and they fixed the "beef tongue" thing at least.

For the two people who still care, lost word's global release is coming may 11th. Touhou garakuta dropped the news first which is kinda funny.

Japan gets everything first, even the release date!

Is it just me or has Aya gradually become the most villainous character in the series?

Just let yourself become a worthless person!

This actually ties in with Alternative Facts, right? Aya, having rediscovered who she wants to be professionally, feels like the right thing to do is to publish an honest article, even if it might drive a business she frequents bankrupt.

Its funny that she has all these prejudices against Buddhists, though.

I wrote some basic summaries of the characters, so I might as well post them here:

Misumaru Tamatsukuri. Stage 4 boss. She's a god who makes magatama. Magatama have the power to read and copy information from people, and are related to how the cards are made. She's not the one making them though: she just noticed that someone else was mining Dragon Gems (which you need to make magatama) and got really worried because she knows how dangerous that is. She fights the players to stop them from going deeper into the mines, which are filled with poisonous gas and also have no oxygen. They actually do leave after stage 4, which is kind of funny.

Megumu Iizunamaru. Stage 5 boss. She goes by her surname Iizunamaru, like Murasa. She's a daitengu and leader of the crow tengu (implied that she is also a crow, she's just also in the position of daitengu). IE: she is Aya's boss. She's the one behind this whole plan, and has no motives other than making profit for the good of tengu society. She gives up easily and throws her partner (the last boss) under the bus since she's no longer necessary and she already got everything she wanted. In Sanae's ending she and Kanako have a conversation that is entirely business buzzwords with no content.

Tsukasa Kudamaki. Stage 5 midboss (and stage 6 midboss, and extra midboss). She's Iizunamaru's trusted right-hand woman, although she probably shouldn't be trusted since she has zero loyalty to anyone and is actively playing everyone against each other. She's secretly a tube fox, which as we saw in WaHH bring profits but at a great price. This whole plan was her suggestion in the first place.

Chimata Tenkyu. The final boss. God of the marketplace. Specifically, she has power over (and derives power from) people "losing possession of things." Apparently this is harder than it sounds, because even if you throw something in the trash or bury it in the woods, it's still "yours" in some spiritual and mental sense. The only way to lose possession of something is to voluntarily sell it to someone else, in the market. So her goal is just to open up the market and draw power from that as a god. Obviously she's the one who made all the rules about how cards can be traded. Apparently she expected to be betrayed by Iizunamaru and viewed their relationship as both parties using the other. Some people are saying maybe she's a metaphor for Comiket. The God of Comiket.

Momoyo Himemushi. Extra boss. She's a giant centipede youkai, the most fearsome and powerful of all youkai, dwarfing even dragons. A dragon eater. Her true form is hideous and poisonous and, well, no one likes her. She's the one digging up the mountain and created the mine. And also why it's full of poisonous gas. The players can't go back into the mine until they get a magic item that lets them not breathe. She's an old friend of Iizunamaru, who gave her a job mining Dragon Gems. In return, she gets to take some of the gems herself and eat them (Dragon Gems being close enough to dragons, apparently). So she's super powerful, incredibly toxic, and eats rocks. Her profile jokes about her eating dragon stones instead of eating Iizunamaru (whose given name Megumu is written as "Dragon").

Each and every one of those characters sounds amazing, zun knocks another one out of the park


I can easily see how the extra boss could be read as a cryptocurrency joke in the same way Free Market touhou can be comiket tbh

For the record the extra boss is a dumbass. She has no idea what's going on other than that Iizunamaru is paying her to dig up rocks.
