Touhou Corner: Double Dealing Character

Touhou Kishinjou (lit. 'Shining Needle Castle') ~ Double Dealing Character (東方輝針城 ~ Double Dealing Character) is the 14th Touhou Project game, released for the 84th Comiket on August 12, 2013. This is also the first title in the series to be available by digital download means as well as physical versions.

In Double Dealing Character, youkai creatures are in a state of rebellion, shortly followed by the awakening of several tsukumogami living in discharged/misused items of any sorts, These anomalies in Gensokyo also affect the main items of Reimu, Marisa and Sakuya, which decide to find out more about the ongoing delicate situation. The chosen heroine's search will lead to the Shining Needle Castle, where the inchling Shinmyoumaru Sukuna is firing up the revolt with the help of her Miracle Mallet, in the attempt to prove to Gensokyo the importance of the inchling population despite the very same Shinmyoumaru being told a deceiving background story for her population by amanojaku Seija Kijin.

ZUN's gaming concept for Double Dealing Character was to make a '2000s neo-retro danmaku shooter' that was simple enough to pick up and play without being defined by either retro or modern features. For that purpose, the game doesn't present any signature gameplay/scoring gimmick in favor of slight feature tweaks like point collection rules and item auto-collection. Once again after Undefined Fantastic Object, extra lives and bombs have to be collected in shards as part of enemies' drops.

The most notable piece of trivia about DDC -aside from its officially-licensed online distribution by Japanese platform Playism- is the fact that this is one of the first Touhou Project games to be officially distributed worldwide (in Japanese), also thanks to Playism. The game's global digital distribution was launched on May 7th, 2015.

Much like with Fairy Wars, Double Dealing Character on Taiko is being represented starting from one of NAMCO SOUNDS's first Touhou arrangements.
