Sonority Scouts - Eastern Music Sharing



It's another Sonority Scouts feature where you're going to hear the same song multiple times, as 2016's 6-doujin Touhou arrange collaboration has just reached all the promised gaming series! Here's how Senshaku Zesshou no Fantasia is translated into other music game series so far.



One of the three originally-advertised series to receive the collaborative track, SOUND VOLTEX got its hold on the song roughly at the same time of Taiko no Tatsujin's public outing, also starring an high-end hard mode on the not-maximum-difficulty range.



Right after that, both Bandai Namco and Konami's bemani division have decided to have some unscheduled double takes, as Senshaku Zesshou no Fantasia was ported to other proprietary series of both parties!

For BN's case we have the song also appearing in Synchronica, where the background and selected hit markers are animated in a different way for some visual remarks to the original games's stages on which the precise parts of the medleys are based on.



On bemani fields, instead, this "Touhou Arrange Medley" has landed in one of its newest arcade series to date!

Originally released on December 2015, MÚSECA was made under the concept of linking the musical experience with its unique visuals, as players can equip one of the game's many Grafica character portraits to receive some perks in selected points of the song, such as a gauge bar/point boost or the Grafica itself speaking to the player! In this series, notes are hit with the aid of a pedal and 5 spinners that can be both pressed/held and rotated.

Much like SOUND VOLTEX and BeatStream, this series is generous on song licenses that are strictly not original creations and as such, Senshaku Zesshou no Fantasia was ported to the game as a default song for the original MÚSECA's first update (1 + 1/2), with its hardest mode (朱, Red) spotlighting the many kinds of note markers in the game. As you can see, there are also some Touhou-related Grafica portaits in the game, too!



Surprisingly enough, the last of the three series which were supposed to originally receive the collaboration piece is Taito's Groove Coaster, as the song was added today to the currently-active arcade version (GC 3 Link Fever).

While having animated background remarks to the series like for Synchronica's take, this latest rendition has also the added perk of the currently-playable characters in the series' silhouettes appearing every now and then during the play. Not to mention that it was also advertised by showing off a still shot of Touhou Project series creator ZUN playing the song first-hand a month in advance of its public outing (link)!
