東方緋想天 ~ Scarlet Weather Rhapsody (romanized: Touhou Hisouten, meaning Eastern Skies of Scarlet Perceptions) chronologically takes place about 1 year after Mountain of Faith (TH10). Henceforth it is referred to as TH10.5.

Like its predecessor, Immaterial and Missing Power, Scarlet Weather Rhapsody is a collaboration between ZUN and Tasogare Frontier. Tasogare Frontier is well-known for games such as Eternal Fighter Zero and Immaterial and Missing Power.

Scarlet Weather Rhapsody debuted at Reitaisai 4, with a playable demo available to patrons. A demo was released at C72, and an updated demo was released online on April 29, 2008. The full version was released at Reitaisai 5 on May 25, 2008.

Gameplay

Main article: Scarlet Weather Rhapsody: Gameplay (includes a more detailed description of the game)

As with Immaterial and Missing Power, Scarlet Weather Rhapsody is a fighting game featuring a variety of Touhou Project characters. It appears to be similar in many ways to its predecessor, with many similar sprites and attacks. However, the inclusion of a new weather system that can affect the tides of battle, a 20 card deck system, and the implementation of flight marks a vast difference in gameplay between IaMP and its successor.

Story

Main article: Scarlet Weather Rhapsody: Translation (includes the translated script)

A bizarre phenomenon is occurring in Gensokyo. In the middle of summer, untimely rain and hail fall in the Forest of Magic, snow blankets Hakugyokurou, the Scarlet Devil Mansion is enveloped in a cloudy, dense haze, and the Hakurei Shrine is leveled by a sudden earthquake. Throughout the game, Reimu and the other protagonists set out to investigate the source of the strange occurrences.

Tenshi Hinanai is a celestial. Finding her newfound life in Heaven boring and monotonous, she enviously saw the youkai of Gensokyo stirring many incidents from above. Wielding the power to control the earth and the divine Sword of Hisou, the jaded celestial decides to instigate a catastrophe of her own.
