Orin looks different too. I didn't think she'd show up again. I mean, how many times did you have to beat her in SA?

Luckily, yes. I think his art style has improved vastly. His Touhous used to look like blobs, now they have more refined looks.

Well, that is true.
Isn't Reimu supposed to be pretty young in the first place? I guess he's just more able to show it now (unless she isn't, in which case top marks for effort I guess).

^ I think she's supposed to be in her mid-late teens or something.

Maybe it's just me. but the drawings for this game look more 'alive' than the ones in TD. The hair also seems to have improved(in terms of detail).

As for the boss in the last screenshot; lots of people have been saying that it's Orin, which I used to dismiss because the designs were too different, but after thinking about it more and considering the plot blurb, I could definitely see it being her.
Orin seems like she'd normally be 'quiet and subdued.' I wonder if anyone else will show up.

It's possible it's Orin, but I somehow doubt it. I don't think it's very common for a touhou character introduced in one game to appear in another as a boss unless they're extremely popular like Kogasa.

That's what I would normally think, but again, the whole "...the Youkai who are usually quiet and subdued have suddenly start wreaking havoc" thing makes me want to think otherwise(as I don't see Orin as being much of a problem normally). It all depends on who the 'usually quiet and subdued' Youkai are.

Personally, I'd rather we have new characters than old ones filling boss/midboss positions in the games, as it just ends up making Gensokyo a more interesting place(and I don't want to deal with the very aptly named 'Hell's Traffic Accident' again ._.).
I suppose time will tell.

The trial has been released!
Each character seems to have 2 shottypes; one with their 'cursed' weapons, and the other without. The effects of the former are pretty hilarious.
As far as stage and midbosses go, we have 3 new ones and 1 returning:
Spoiler: show
Stage 1
Cirno
Wakasagihime (Mermaid)
Stage 2
Sekibanki (Rokurokubi)
Stage 3
Kagerou Imaizumi (Werewolf)

Bombs seem to be plentiful, and lives aren't as much of a pain.

And as always, the music is pretty cool too.
