Farce90’s Post Series – Part 18: Immaterial and Missing Power

This is going to be a fairly short post as the game has a very simple story which changes based on what character is picked for the storyline. Also, the title theme for this game was remixed and used as the character select screen music in another fighting game, and one of my favorite games.

Immaterial and Missing power is a fighting game which is slanted heavily towards projectile based attacks, as are the other 2 fighting games. This specific game and the other fighting games are produced by both ZUN and Tasogare Frontier. Tasogare Frontier is composed of a group of people who do absolutely amazing work and have a few of their own games. For the Touhou fighters they did the visuals and performed the music that was composed by ZUN. Because this game took place in between two of the major Touhou games, Touhou 7 and Touhou 8, this has been numbered 7.5.

Immaterial and Missing Power starts with a strong mist that’s spreading across Gensokyo. The game takes place 3 days before a major feast at the Hakurei Shrine and interrupts Reimu’s preperations. She and several other residents of Gensokyo set out to investigate. Playable characters are as follow:

Hakurei Reimu

Sakuya Izayoi

Marisa Kirisame

Patchouli Knowledge

Alice Margatroid

Youmu Konpaku

Yuyuko Saigyouji

Remilia Scarlet

Yukari Yakumo

Hong Meiling

Suika Ibuki

Suika is a new character to the Touhou series and is an Oni. According to legend, all oni had disappeared long ago. Suika has decided to reunite the humans and the oni by attracting them to parties. The drunker Suika gets, the stronger she becomes. Furthermore she carries an oni treasure with her; a gourd that contains a limitless supply of sake.

Of all the Touhou fighting games I played, this was not one of them. However, if it’s remotely as good as the other fighters I can say that it’s a spectacular game.
