Touhou Michihoshi ~ Star of Undiscovered Myth (東方未知星 ~ Star of Undiscovered Myth, lit. Eastern Unknown Star) is the sixth Fighting game in the Touhou Project, and a follow-up to Urban Legend in Limbo, being a collaboration between Plasma Productions and Shooting Star Studios. It chronologically takes place about 1 year after Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom. It's set to be released during winter 2016.


Star of Undiscovered Myth is a 2D one-on-one fighting game, which mostly consists in aerial combat and features a heavy bias toward projectiles. Characters attack using basic attacks (which are mostly melee and special attacks), skills and spell cards. Each character possesses unique abilities and fighting styles, with some focusing more on melee attacks, others on ranged attacks, others on defense, etc. During the course of a match, items named Star Fragments will appear and float around the stage for a bit, and they can be collected by the characters. Collecting these fragments fulfill a gauge named Star Faith, which, as the name implies, brings faith to the Star Spirits and grant more power to the characters. There are 4 Star Fragment colors, and whichever is collected the most until 50 Star Fragments, gives a specific upgrade to players' attacks:

  • Yellow Star Fragments - Increase shooting range, and bring more agility in bullet patterns and a better attack area.
  • Blue Star Fragments - Increase defense and grazing, allowing for a better bullet dodge. It also increases shielding.
  • Green Star Fragments - Grant a better flight, as well as increased jumping and allowing a faster bullet or attack charge.
  • Red Star Fragments - Increase power / strength. Bullets become larger and general melee attacks are more powerful. 

When collecting 50 Star Fragments and fulfilling the Star Faith bar, players are on their full potential to unleash a Last Word attack, granted by a Star Spirit. A Last Word being an ultimate attack of sorts that can easily K.O. an opponent if they have been damaged enough. In this game, Last Word attacks are themed after the characters' planned wishes on the newfound Star.

The game in general features a similar style to both Hopeless Masquerade and Urban Legend in Limbo, focusing on aerial combat and featuring more diverse and unique three dimensional stages. Unlike the previous two games, this game features a less limited flight in gameplay, brings back ground combat from the first fighting games, and also features new modes and battle royale-styled fights, allowing up to four players, rather than the usual duels. alphes art style returns once again, rather than Moe Harukawa's art style from Urban Legend in Limbo.


The game's english title refers to Pyxis Nova, the wish-granting Star that has been recently discovered by the habitants of Gensokyo, which was previously a mostly unknown myth. The japanese title, Eastern Unknown Star, also refers to Pyxis.


Recently, rumors were being spread about a new star in the night sky, the divine star of Pyxis
Some say it could be a spaceship
Some believe it could collision with land
But the most far-fetched rumor of all is that the star could grant a wish

Regardless of it's divine purpose, the star was used as an ultimate excuse to throw a festival, it didn't seem as if many believed in it

But beneath all the drunken banter however was the very essence of faith, could people really believe in this star and it's great wishing capabilities?
With their hearts in pursuit of the star a great battle of faith and wishes was absolute to occur, after all the ultimate trophy is at stakes; the divine star of Pyxis itself

While the entire Gensokyo throws a party, using the appearance of a new star as an excuse, the selected heroine decides to investigate the incident to find the star's true nature. Along the way, they encounter various opponents who interfere with their investigation, most simply wanting to have some fun shooting danmaku.

After defeating many opponents while following this new star, the heroine comes across a temple in the sky right below the star's location. Before they can enter however, the heroine l is interrupted by a mysterious girl; Ceres Nebula. In attempt to protect "her only friend" Ceres attacks without warning, but in the end the heroine prevails and continues on to discover what the star truly is.

Upon entering the sanctuary, the heroine realizes what the temple really is; a boundary between earth and the cosmos. Then a divine being appears before the heroine, who reveals herself to be none other than the star itself; Pyxis Nova. Confused, Pyxis assumes that the heroine has summoned her with a massive amount of faith and revealsthat she is capable of manifesting their greatest desire. After learning however that it was not the heroine that summoned them, a great battle occurs.

But in the end, the heroine claims victory and their wish granted. Over time Gensokyo returns to normal again and gradually people lose faith in Pyxis, causing her to return to the heavens as the Starry Sanctuary is sealed off.

After clearing the game with all characters, another scenerio is unlocked with Ceres in pursuit of reaching Pyxis. After fighting through Gensokyo's most powerful residents, whom many of which were culrpits of previous incidents, Ceres finally enters the Starry Sanctuary, but is blocked by the gaurdian of Gensokyo; Yukari Yakumo.

As ensuring nobody crosses into Gensokyo is her duty, Yukari is very alarmed of the temple being unsealed and creating a path between Gensokyo and space itself. After being questioned, Ceres reveals that she indeed is the culprit behind the incident and was responsible for unsealing the temple. Ceres explains that as she spread the rumor of Pyxis, people's faith in the stars manifested and broke the seal, allowing Pyxis to decend from the stars and reunite with her, Pyxis being the only person who showed her kindness for being a dark Star Spirit. Still valuing Gensokyo's safety more, Yukari threatens to close the border before Pyxis arrives and attacks.

Desiring to see her friend more than anything else however, Ceres prevails and requests her own desire; to be together with Pyxis. Afterwards, they remain happily in Gensokyo as faith in the stars never dies.
