Welcome to Dev Letter #26 with Phantasma and Michael! Caroline might not have been present for this Dev Letter, but the Happy News remains. Like last month, we have a lot to go through with some awesome news, updates and more under the moon. We will also be getting 4500 Coins and 15 Seal Crystals when reaching 1500 reposts on social media, so without further ado, let's get into the Happy News!
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! This was first revealed on the 33rd JP Live Stream with Yuuhei Satellite where we also saw more of what went into Yumeno Rote's artwork regarding Remilia Scarlet from the very first MV!
In addition, Yuuhei Satellite answered some questions on the last JP live stream such as the behind the scenes of their MV "The Heat of my Fingertips", as well as having fans from overseas!
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!
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!
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!
In addition to the new above comes Scarlet Devil Tower providing us with another 10 floors, taking us to Floor 310 on September 21st!
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?
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...
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!
VS Divergent Spirits + Pools
Like last month, we saw some new additions when it comes to the Standard Prayer Pool and Guaranteed Ritual & Exchange Ema too!
In addition, we have a lot to go over when it comes to VS Divergent Spirits, from a whole month of new stages, to another arrival to the Divergent Spirits Ritual Pool, to even a Clear Challenge that rewards you with 10 Seal Crystals per weekly Divergent Spirits Clear and 1 Divine Paper Doll!
It's Player Appreciation time! These are always welcome to have in the game, such as brand new Errand Rewards, some Freebie Prayers, Guaranteed Festival Friends, a limited Daily EXP Quest via Daily Stages, and...a nightmare? That's strange, this was supposed to be happy news, although what this does bring is probably something a lot of people were dreaming would come!
