Touhou Tenkuushou (Sky Jade Scepter) ~ Hidden Star in Four Seasons (東方天空璋 ~ Hidden Star in Four Seasons) is the sixteenth official installment of the Touhou Project. It was announced by ZUN on his personal blog on April 20, 2017, at 22:09 JST.[1] A playable demo was released May 7, 2017, at Reitaisai 14, and the full version was released August 11, 2017 at Comiket 92. It was launched on Steam on November 17, 2017, marking Touhou's debut release on Steam.

Gameplay

There are four main characters: Reimu Hakurei, Marisa Kirisame, Cirno (with a tan), and Aya Shameimaru. ZUN described his gameplay intentions as an "ordinary STG" with no big twists[2].

Concept

Story

Despite it being midsummer, the seasons in various locations are completely out of whack. The Hakurei Shrine is showered in cherry petals, the Youkai Mountain is basking in the middle of autumn, and the Forest of Magic is blanketed in snow... and thanks to some strange force, Gensokyo's fairies are running rampant with unfathomable strength. In the midst of this undeniable incident, the girls set out to investigate and find the perpetrator behind it.

Music

Press

Hidden Star in Four Seasons was first announced on ZUN's blog on April 20, 2017. He confirmed playable characters and posted in-development screenshots.

He noted that he is aiming for a "light and refreshing feeling" and would like to "return to [his] roots with something that simply aims to make you feel good to play"[2]. On May 5, ZUN showed the demo CD that would be released at next Reitaisai.

During the 86th edition of the Nikenme Radio show[3] on October 30th, 2017, ZUN announced that a Steam release for the game was planned. This was also mentioned by Tasofro in a blog entry following the show[4].
