Touhou Kikeijuu (Oni-Shaped Beast) ~ Wily Beast and Weakest Creature (東方鬼形獣 ~ Wily Beast and Weakest Creature) is the seventeenth official installment of the Touhou Project. It was announced by ZUN on his personal blog on April 17, 2019, at 14:02 JST.[1] A playable demo was released on May 5, 2019, at Reitaisai 16.

Gameplay[edit]

There are three main characters: Reimu Hakurei, Marisa Kirisame, and Youmu Konpaku. The player can equip one of three animal spirits, as well as activate a temporary hyper mode (known as "Roaring Mode") corresponding to each. "Wolf" powers up the player's focused shot, "Otter" either powers up the player's bombs or provides a bullet-erasing barrier, and "Eagle" powers up the player's unfocused shot.[1]

Concept[edit]

In the game's preliminary description, ZUN describes it as "a shooting game that's darker than usual, full of animal elements, and just a bit aggressive."[1]

Story[edit]

Reimu, Marisa and Youmu encounter several animal spirits from Hell, who claim that their fellow animal spirits are plotting to take over the surface world. The three heroines team up with the spirits, and venture into Hell to take out this new potential threat.

Music[edit]
