Touhou Kouryuudou (Rainbow Dragon Cave) ~ Unconnected Marketeers (東方虹龍洞 ~ Unconnected Marketeers) is the eighteenth official installment of the Touhou Project. It was announced by ZUN on the Touhou Project news blog Touhou Yomoyama News, February 2021.[1] A playable demo was released on March 21st the same year, at Reitaisai 18, and the full version is scheduled to be released in May.

Gameplay[edit]

There are four main characters: Reimu Hakurei, Marisa Kirisame, Sakuya Izayoi and Sanae Kochiya.

The game features over 40 "ability cards" that can either be equipped before starting a playthrough, or bought at a shop menu after each stage. While only a few are initially available to be equipped in advance, others can be unlocked via successive playthroughs. Cards can grant the player "active" abilities (used at will with C, then must be recharged), "passive" gameplay perks, "equipment" (in the form of additional options or small helper characters), or simply additional lives.

Concept[edit]

This game is described as a poppy, rainbow-colored shooting game with a refreshing atmosphere.

Story[edit]

The story revolves around the circulation of mysterious cards, which seem to contain the secrets of various humans and youkai.

Music[edit]
