Touhou Danmaku Kagura Phantasia Lost Story Plot


Touhou Danmaku Kagura Phantasia Lost takes place in Phantasia (also known originally as Gensokyo), where it has been destroyed. A maiden of the Hakurei Shrine, Reimu Hakurei, awakes to find her memories gone. She is approached by a ball of light who introduces itself as Mitama, and informs her that she must collect Mitama Cards, which are Fragments of Memories, in order to restore the truth behind Phantasia’s ruin.

She must now go on an unending journey across the barren lands of Phantasia on a quest to retrieve Mitama Cards and the Fragments of Memories they contain.

Touhou Danmaku Kagura Phantasia Lost Gameplay

Touhou Danmaku Kagura Phantasia Lost is a rhythm and action game where you must precisely press buttons to the beat of the song playing. Phantasia Lost will have two available modes to spice up the rhythm game genre!

The Kagura Stage falls into the traditional rhythm game formula, where notes approach from the top of the screen and you must time your button presses as the pass down. Perform a streak of unmissed notes to extend your combo and perfect all the songs!

The Danmaku Stage will be a unique experience that fuses Danmaku shoot ‘em up with Rhythm games. The notes will instead be displayed on the side of the screen. Hitting notes will deal damage to enemies on the screen.

Phantasia Lost will host countless songs across the Touhou Project library. Refer to the images above for the full available tracklist on release.
