MV Project + Yuuhei Satellite

Like last month, we'll be going over the MV Project's recent happenings again. This time, Byakuren's MV "Holy Again" which is a blissful arrange of Byakuren's theme is in the spotlight!

Fantasy Rebirth

And with that said, it's time to delve into what to look forward to in terms of Touhou LostWord, starting with Fantasy Rebirth! We will soon be getting access to all the Anima modes from our protagonists from Hifuu: Code B3 (Reimu, Marisa, Sakuya, Youmu, Reisen, Sanae) as well as everyone from the Hifuu: Code E9 Story (Meiling, Koakuma, Patchouli, Sakuya, Flandre and Remilia)!

Now for costumes! So far, we've been on a roll with new Fantasy Rebirth Mirror Stages, with Suika Ibuki and Yuugi Hoshiguma recently coming in with their costumes, but following them closely will be Tewi Inaba and Sumireko Usami on October 19th!

But which Friends will succeed them, you might ask? Well, Toyosatomimi no Miko followers and Hata no Kokoro fans will look forward to November, which is when their desirable costumes and Fantasy Rebirth is planned to be unmasked!

The following Ultra Festival Friends will soon be getting access to their Anima Modes:

Reimu Hakurei (B3), Marisa Kirisame (B3), Sakuya Izayoi (B3), Youmu Konpaku (B3), Reisen Udongein Inaba (B3) and Sanae Kochiya (B3)

New Content (Event, Tower, Manga, etc)

New content! Last month prepped us for 2 new events to come in the future, one of them is only days away now, and it is called Gensokyo Delivery Service Supportmates! It comes with a Relic Paper Disk for 100 Event P, but for the first time for LostWord Global, also comes with Blank Mirrors of Rebirth in the Exchange Shop! That on top of all the food delivered by Kutaka, Nitori and Takane is appreciated!

In October however, prepare yourselves for a spooky switcheroo event with the Grassroots Youkai Trio, Wakasagihime, Kagerou and Sekibanki!

The new event named "Gensokyo's Delivery Service Supportmates" is being delivered to us very soon!

All the costumes above will provide a 10% increase in Event Points and a 20% increase in Rare Event Points if obtained, delivering those points quicker than usual!

Wakasagihime, Sekibanki, and Kagerou Imaizumi will be starring in a new event next month!

Gensokyo Tales of Fantasy fans, rejoice! Because we have a new installment  coming on September 28th titled "A Chilling Business Venture" with illustrations done by JILL. Some of the manga will be posted on the game's X / Twitter account too! 

Look forward to more Gensokyo Tales of Fantasy later this month!

In addition to the new above comes Scarlet Devil Tower providing us with another 10 floors, taking us to Floor 310 on September 21st!

September 21st will be the day where you will be able to climb your way up to Floor 310!

And to wrap up this magical segment, prepare yourselves for the arrival of the Finale to Chapter 2 Extra 1! When will it arrive? Who knows, but fate will decide that!

Speaking of fate, who is this new variant of Remilia Scarlet and what role will she play in the story?

Chapter 2 Extra 1 Finale coming soon!

As well as all the new content comes a little adjustment coming very soon, where the Auto and Full Auto buttons will be merged and the x2 button will be moved as well!

Kaguya's Impossible Request (Moonlit Festival Edition)

Ever since the advent of the Relics, one question came to mind for some: What would happen when we reach Moonlit Festival with Reisen and Kaguya? Well now that time has come, as L80 Kaguya Houraisan (Moonlit Festival)'s time is now!

She is a Technical Class Friend with a 33% increase in elements effective against any enemies, has a 133% Hard Scaling on her Last Word, uses Burn and Paralyse anomalies for defensive buffs, and most importantly, provides a brand new mechanic, where she can make her enemies weak to Moon for a number of turns!

Some of you might be wondering what happened with Reisen? Well, only time will tell...

Kaguya Houraisan (Moonlit Festival) arrives with a brand new mechanic!

Introducing a new mechanic: Inflict Elemental Weakness! An enemy may be subjected to become weak to a specific element for a number of turns.

As usual, L80 Kaguya comes with 3 Friend Voices, voiced by Mizuno Saki, Ono Yuko and Akesaka Satomi!

As usual, when a new Relic Friend arrives, so does a new Ruins of Memory Story, which means a copy of the Story Card Kaguya's Moonlit Festival will be up for grabs once this is complete, but more on this card later!

A new Ruins of Memory for Moonlit Festival is on the way, as well as a copy of the Story Card: Kaguya's Moonlit Festival
