Steam is listing that Mediascape will release Team Shanghai Alice's Touhou Kikeijū: Wily Beast and Weakest Creature, the 17th main game in the Touhou Project game series, on September 10. The release will have text in Japanese only.
ZUN (founder and sole member of the Team Shanghai Alice dōjin game developer circle) stated in April he plans to complete the game by this summer. ZUN released a demo for the game at the "Hakurei Jinja Reitaisai" event on May 5.
In the game's story, animal spirits from hell are scheming to take over the world, and Reimu, Marisa, and Yōmu along with friendly animal spirits from hell go to preemptively stop them. ZUN said the game is darker than usual, and is a bit more of an "offensive shooting game" with lots of animal elements.
Touhou: Hidden Star in Four Seasons, the 16th and latest main installment in the Touhou Project series, debuted at the Comiket 92 event in August 2017. ZUN's Touhou Project Dai-16.5-Dan Hifū Nightmare Diary ~Violet Detector game launched at the Comiket 94 event last August.
