BEHOLD! I… have RETURNED! It’s been awhile since I’ve made a new addition to this series. I introduce to you all my favorite game in the series. Touhou Hisoutensoku is a joint production between Team Shanghai Alice and Tasogare Frontier. If you want to see the gameplay to this just look up Scarlet Weather Rhapsody from earlier. Why? Because Hisoutensoku is pretty much an expansion to SWR. It added several new characters while keeping the old ones and even making a few changes in their move sets. It keeps all the old data from SWR if they are linked properly.
Hisoutensoku added several characters into the fighting mash-up. Hong Meiling, Sanae Kochiya, Cirno, Rieiji Utsuho, and Suwako Moriya. Each character is different but Suwako is by far the hardest character to use out of all of them.
The story is very different from SWR and allows only the new characters to be playable through the storyline. A giant shadow has been seen in several areas all throughout Gensokyo by several residents. Each of them set out to discover what exactly it is and what it’s purpose is. Each character fights their way through several opponents before arriving at an underground nuclear reactor where Rieiji resides. An epic and extremely difficult battle ensues. Upon defeat Suwako makes herself known and identifies herself as the cause. She says something about the giant shadow actually being a robot that has wandered off away from the reactor. It is never actually found through the game, although Meiling gets to fight a giant catfish.
This was a really easy post for me to make because it has all the same controls and elements that SWR did so that saved me a lot of time. The reason that it took so long to get another post up is that I just recently started working again and I’m still trying to straighten out a whole bunch of stupid college and loan shit and it’s driving me crazy. I apologize if anyone is offended by what I said but I am really frustrated. I’ll try to get the last game post up as soon as I can but I can’t really make any promises. I will get it up some time though.
