New Trailer for Touhou 17.5
« on: September 01, 2020, 03:02:56 PM »
I'm surprised there isn't a topic on it yet, it's been out for about a week now.
In a stream by Touhou Station, they showed a trailer for 17.5 if anyone else actually remembers that game...

Here's footage of it on youtube:

Playable Kanako... and Yamame appears too, we're getting a bunch of old faces in this game and I'm all down for it!
I wonder if all of 'em will be playable, like in the fighting games? I'd love to play as Kogasa or Yuugi.

The trailer shows that unlike how things were previously, using a spell this time uses up the newly added chargeable vertical water bar instead of consuming a life like before. Trading a life for some damage seemed like ass to me, so I much prefer this change.

Absorbing the water thingies also charges up the vertical water bar instead of giving you life like before, so the game might be less cheesable than how it was previously.

Ahahah Good! Dear ( innocent but  alas still slowpoke)  THANKS to both of you!


 (.... TH 17.5... SHoSS/Sunken Hell of Submerged Sorrow... The New TH  "Horizontal Renovated Mostly-Fighting Genre "... with Many Returning Characters in a "Mostly-Fighter Fashion"...
It Really seems to have Slipped by many "views" in here; likely to no re-posting in other MoTK Sub-Sections, The Appropriate Ones in their Own Appropriate Aspects, and" a not enough bridging highlighting return from The Previous Most Active(seeming the Final One...to be a "confirmed share-able") in that MotK's V2 Thread"...
YET it has to Be Tempered by all the Grieving, Opportunistic, Guilty and Connected things, with especially The Remedies during/after, The Much Needed Fair Remedies Ones).

I am agreeing, taking value and interest by your After Playing-Watching-Comparing Successive(Demo) Versions. This means a trending and potential directed to a Developing, Test-Balancing and "Testing-Test Balance-Balancing "(with Ultimate Publishing AND Update Patching) which keep shaping to be functional entertaining fun&challenge

New demo is out.

I haven't seen much but I'm glad to see Reimu and Yamame as bosses. I hope all characters will be playable, like the fighting games...
In the meantime, I guess I'll listen to the new themes.

The music arranges sounds nice, I especially like Yamame's beach theme. Fine work by Ziki_07, if I may say

Anyway, aside from the boss battles, the demo also seems to have a mini-tutorial section that is REEEEAAAALLYYYY structured like a stage section, featuring tutorial mobs, hazards, and stronger mid-boss like mob (or that just represents the end-stage boss). The demos we received contained exclusively boss battles, which made it pretty reasonable to expect the game to be nothing but boss rush. But honestly, this to me still shows the possibility of the game having proper stage sections (which would really make the game last longer)

Tasofro might be mainly known for their Touhou fighting games, but it should still be reminded that they also made Megamari and Super Marisaland before : even if this game's gonna have lengthy boss battles, stage sections should still be something that they are capable of implementing imo

Just imagine this : a good old story mode with the various difficulty setting, a time attack mode, a boss rush mode, an extra mode, a only-one-life mode ... if Tasofro puts not just stage sections but a bunch of challenges such as these, then that would really add a lot of replayability to this game



If there's a small change I'd like them to implement, it'd be on the cutscenes. The girls talking to each other while being frozen in a single immobile sprite for most of the time really seems very awkward to me. Probably use the default idle animation instead or something, that would add quite a bit of life. Other than that, I've also seen a bunch of videos where there's a bug(?) where the bosses AND even the player can get stuck on corners. Hopefully that gets fixed in the final release too.

After a short presentation from Touhou Station, Tasofro grace us with a new trailer for Touhou 17.5, featuring who else but a thematically fitting character in the form of Captain Murasa (called it)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRgOOx412sA

And while I like this cape wearing Murasa, I find it hilarious that she seems to lug around an actual boat with her wherever she seems to be going lol

Touhou 17.5's release seems imminent and is probably happening for real this time, as it's quite common for Tasofro to make a proper trailer before release. Also, if they're gonna operate like they usually do in the past, I believe it is quite possible for them to progressively introduce / officiously leak a number of playable character before the game gets properly released.

Exiting! The inclusion of Murasa is cool too, since she's only really appeared in UFO and DS.

Also, according to the wiki page, (https://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Touhou_Gouyoku_Ibun) it is actually going to be released this month!

Hmm, guess what got delayed. Again.
The release is set for next month (september), although a set date hasn't been provided yet.

Tbh I'm more curious about the game's development cycle thaN the release date itself at times

Game's been out for quite some time now

Imo it's possible that the game is not 100% finished yet, as there's still that suspicious "greed challenge"(?) grayed out unselectable stage kinda thing

Also, comparing TH 17.5 footages from a certain samurai cat Vtuber stream and the content of the game in the Steam release & patch, there are a few additions such as oil shooting out of the ground after the quakes in Flandre's route, and also small boat like platforms in the Flooded Hell of Blazing Fires in Kutaka's stage ; and the only difficulties available being normal and hard plus the unusual lack of playable final boss and easy and lunatic difficulty kinda makes me think this way too.

I believe (and am kinda crossing my fingers) that Tasofro is gonna add a bunch of stuff in future patches somewhere down the line, similar to previous works like HM, AoCF, or even Shoot Shoot Nitori the Golden.

Game turned out much cooler than I expected : art direction is fine, what's with everything being entirely pixel art (including the backgrounds !) instead of going with that weird 2D charater sprite and 3D model backgrounds like usual, not to mention TOKIAME's art and the way the endings are illustrated. While I'm kinda bummed by the lack of stage sections, gameplay-wise, Tasofro deciding to allow 10 misses (actually helpful) plus allowing the water charge attack (bomb ?) to break red seals is like 300% better than how it was in the demo.

I hope Tasofro's is actually going to add a bunch of cool stuff later, and I wouldn't mind em building up on this kind of game in the future tbh, like for example making an actual platformer with this lineup of characters & playstyles plus whoever else is gonna get added.

Still jamming to Yuumas themes, I especially enjoy the callbacks to other themes in them. The remixes are imo pretty enjoyable as well. And I like the overall art direction! The character portraits are quite beautiful, so props to the artist. I'm actually rather fond of the pixel art backgrounds, but I'm also just generally a fan of pixel art so I guess I'm just biased.  :D

However, I agree with the idea that the game might not be finished yet, as the game doesn't feel very content-filled? We only have 6 (or 7 if you count the Yorigamis separately) playable characters, which doesn't feel like a whole lot. Some of the characters only appear as bosses and aren't playable (yet?), which kind of disappointed me. The whole thing about the oil being considered holy or good fortune isn't explored by any characters except for maybe the Yorigamis. And what about the supposed festival thrown for the oil? That story part is never mentioned by anyone, unless I'm missing something from an ending. Or maybe the story description on the wiki isn't supposed very important to the actual plot somehow.

It really would be nice for the game to receive some more updates, so I hope Tasofro is still working on the game.

The Oil thing seems to be a reference to the foreign policy of the United States.
Using that, maybe the thing about it being holy is a propaganda campaing?
I'm not sure, feels like i'm reaching too far with that

Bunch of 17.5 related news

The game's soundtrack is set to be released on the 28th of november 2021 in the Touhou Kouroumou event, and said soundtrack is going to feature original arrangements of some of this game's original songs

Sample / trailer here :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32GYu93BaC0

The game is also finally set to hit your friendly neighboorhood(?) doujin stores the same day. For us filthy overseas folks, this is probably of little relevance especially if you consider the fact that the Steam release is a thing, but I can't help but wonder if, along with this release, some kind of addition / update is gonna come ? Cuz there's still the unavailable Greed Challenge thingy ...

Here it is for Melonbooks :
https://www.melonbooks.co.jp/detail/detail.php?product_id=1136685

And finally on uncompleted but soon to come things, the Thcrap folks are close to getting an english patch ready! While you can up and read the translation online already (and honestly probably fully heard about the plot by this point), this is always a cool thing to look forward to.
