Touhou 12 — Undefined Fantastic Object

February 25th, 2009


Worst name ever.

Demo due out March 8th. Full version in the summer. And lookit the return to separate power and bombs as well as a playable Sanae. God only knows what the UFO slots in the lower left are. Maybe it won’t be as painfully difficult as the last couple. Although after NUCLEAR CROW IN HELL, an alien/pirate invasion seems almost mundane.

    I guess we’ll find out what’s going on when the trial comes out in a couple weeks.
    I barely read any Japanese, but does it say that the trial will be released March 8th?

  • Kraker2k says:

    I think Zun was extra drunk for this one.

  • Myssa Rei says:

    Sanae! Oooh, my interest is piqued.

  • UFOs? In MY Touhou!? I can imagine ZUN, in the midst of his drunkness, making the final boss a super-massive, ultra-giant UFO, and including Will Smith as a playable char, so we have another Independence Day xD


    But I agree with Arudoc: “UFO” is a title way too cheesy/ugly/fucktard. I prefer the original in japanese (“Star Lotus Boat”), thou. Whatev’, can’t wait for it >=D

  • brocoli says:

    lolz, yeah, it’s been a loooong time since “the Phantasmagoria of Dimensional Dream”… but I hope this one isa made with more care and less bugs & mistakes as the last two =/

  • […] of this floating “treasure ship”, and everyone’s chasing it. But what the hell, there’s gotta be a better title than that! Of course I know the EENGREESH, but the title’s still so […]

  • GWT says:

    Good to see ZUN still doesn’t have an artist :P

  • TheBigN says:

    I don’t know. Makes more sense than Subterranean Animism to me. :V

  • pus2meong says:

    The poetic way to say UFO

  • AGear2Ax says:

    UFOs…. from the moon? but the tittle isn’t that bad.

  • Serpit says:

    Reimu looks surprisingly good in that one shot. ZUN actually draws his characters well? I like UFO already ^^

  • Pokute says:

    Actually, if the sketches I saw of Cirno were really drawn by ZUN, then he really is a pretty good artist. The sketch -> colored art phase seems to be the area ZUN needs practice on. He seems to lose a bit too much detail and chooses slightly off colors. Maybe he has some sort of color blindness? :-)

  • Anonymous says:

    Confronted with the reality of the UFO, Reimu goes head to head with the alien intelligences of the UFO, which controls the UFO. But… WHO ARE THE OVERLORDS OF THE UFO!?

  • Sheba says:


    The Prince of Bel-Air.

  • tets says:

    It looks like this game is trying to revitalize the Touhou 7 (PCB) formula. Which i personally think is a wonderful idea.

    @ “Maybe it won’t be as painfully difficult as the last couple*”

    Actually. All of them were quite difficult. :)

  • levisnotjeans says:

    man one more day i think im gonna die from the waiting pressure for the trail oh man X__X

  • derp says:

  • I says:

    UFOs? There can only be one explaination of this.
