Another Month, another Touhou LostWord JP Live Stream to enjoy! This time, we were met with some more news including the MV Project, Fantasy Rebirth, VS Divergent Spirits, and of course, a new Friend!
Of course, we have to give our Spoiler Warning here! With JP News comes new surprises along the way, and if you want to go in blind for an eventual Global announcement of a specific piece of news, feel free to stop reading now. For those who wish to delve into the news, let’s waste no more time and go into all the details, with a link to the Live Stream below as well!
MV Project News
For those who missed it last month, we have our reminder of Patchouli Knowledge’s MV that came out last month called “(TT) Precious Words” by IOSYS x Haruko Momoi!
But enough of that, we have some news about the MV Project! Are you watching, Junko fans? Good, because she will be getting her own MV in the future! More details to be announced in a future live stream.
New Character Reveal
It’s a miracle! After her first appearance in the Interlude section of the main story, our yellow haired variant of Sanae Kochiya (The Overlapping of a Human and God) is finally with us! She faithfully arrives as an Epic Friend with the Support Class, and of course, we will be seeing more of that Rank II action we previously saw from a certain pair of Scarlet Sisters! Here is some information pertaining to Sanae below:
VS Divergent Spirits
Coming into the same alongside our new shrine maiden above is a new Divergent Spirits Stage: VS Hecatia Lapislazuli (B3)! The card in question has Aya on it, but soon we will get more info for it. JP also has a few Divergent Spirits stages and respective farmable Story Cards scheduled in June 2023 too:
Now it’s time for Fantasy Rebirth news! From mirror stages, to costumes, to previews of next month, to enhancements, look no further than below! Wriggle Nightbug, Mystia Lorelei, Keine Kamishirasawa, Joon Yorigami and Shion Yorigami are getting their mirror stages and rebirth soon, with the friends following up next month being Okina Matara, Mai Teireida, Satono Nishida and Aunn Komano! (Hidden Star in Four Rebirths?)
For the costumes though, we have (drum roll please…) Nemuno Sakata and Raiko Horikawa enjoying their new costumes, with Nemuno having her own fumo? Raiko gifted new and pristine drumsticks? Good thing the DDC cast will be sure to get more love next month as both Benben and Yatsuhashi Tsukumo are next in line for Rebirth Costumes!
And of course, with Fantasy Rebirth 2.0 Enhancements, Yukari is finally getting some of her own! Also joining her for more buffs are Sakuya Izayoi, Kosuzu Motoori, Hieda no Akyuu, Benben Tsukumo and Yatsuhashi Tskumo (All L1)!
For a better idea on who is getting what kind of Fantasy Rebirth 2.0 enhancements, here is what to expect from them below:
And now with present JP event matters out of the way, let’s look at what we know of in the future, such as event reruns! These haven’t seen the light of day in the Global version, but maybe one day, who knows.
But wait, there’s more! After those 2 events will come a brand new event, as well as 4 brand new costumes, for Remilia, Utsuho, Marisa and Shion!
Wait, Rinnosuke? What are you doing here? Why do you have a new costume? I thought you weren't playable!
Correction: We have 5 new costumes, but against all odds, a certain tool connoisseur decided to surprise us all with a new costume that doesn’t look like one we can buy. How unfortunate.
We also have a few other things to go over, such as the Free Ultra Festival Friend Prayer on JP that costs 600 God Crystals and some new campaigns in JP, such as 3x EXP stages and Friend Power-Up (with tasks and rewards)!
For a reminder of JP’s current Everyone Wins Campaign, if you logged in every day, you should have made the required days logged in by now. Goods there are looking to be given out by late June. We have a slight Quality of Life improvement regarding what Paper Dolls to use when Limit Breaking a Friend. Last but not least though, we have our monthly Gensokyo Tales of Fantasy announcement!
Next Live Stream
To close off this recap, we actually have a date for the 31st Touhou LostWord JP live stream! This one will take place next month: June 27th 19:00 JST (or 10:00 UTC), and it will feature Tokyo Active NEETS! Their music has been used for multiple Friends’ themes in the game, and they even worked on the MV “Boundary of Time”, so mark your calendars for next month, because I’m sure it will be interesting to see what it has in store for all of us!
And that’s it for this recap everyone! Hope you enjoyed this live stream and/or recap, and until next time, hopefully you continue to enjoy Touhou LostWord!
