< Story >
Gensokyo faces sudden disturbance as 「Scarlet Mist」 spreads once again.
To Reimu Hakurei, this peculiar phenomenon resembled something familiar.
'Is this that vampire's doing?', she thought to herself.
There was only one choice: head to the Scarlet Devil Mansion,
and find out the true cause of the disturbance.
......but this time, the way to the mansion was a little different from usual.

< Gameplay >
● Colorful dialogues between Touhou characters
The player becomes Reimu Hakurei and sets out to find the true cause of the Scarlet Mist. On the way to the Scarlet Devil Mansion, they will interact with various Touhou characters in a number of intense bullet hell battles.

● Reimu's Weapons
The player will fight their way to the cause of the disturbance using right weapons in right situations. Reimu has 「Purification Wand」 for close combat, and 「Ofuda」 for attacking flying enemies. She herself can fly, too.

● Marisa and Cirno join the party!
Marisa Kirisame and Cirno join Reimu in her adventure, supporting her with their own partner attacks. The player can summon them at the cost of Souls. To lead the battle to victory, they need to decide carefully when to call for the partner's help.

● Survive the Touhou-style bullet hell!
Playing as Reimu Hakurei, the player will encounter and fight Touhou characters such as Hong Meiling, Sakuya Izayoi, and Alice Margatroid. The residents of the Scarlet Devil Mansion will corner the player with fierce bullet hell patterns.
And behind all of them stands the vampire Reimu is looking for……!
