Touhou Kamisunaarashi ~ Unpredictable Arcane Storm (東方神聖砂嵐 Unpredictable Arcane Storm, lit. "Eastern Divine Sand Storm") is the sixteenth installment of the Touhou Project. The game's release date is still unknown, although it is expected to be released sometime in 2016.


The five main playable characters are Reimu HakureiMarisa KirisameSakuya IzayoiYoumu Konpaku and Sanae Kochiya each of which have two different shot types. A new gimmick added to the game is the Void Gauge. To fill said gauge, the player must keep attacking enemies and obtaining items to keep filling it. After it's complete, the player activates the "Bullet Void" being capable of absorbing all of the danmaku / bullets on screen, and re-using them as your own to attack. Similar to Touhou 14: Double Dealing Character, when you auto-collect items, either by entering the point of collection or by using a bomb, you will get a bonus item if you gather enough point or power items all at once. The bonus item differs between a bomb piece (at least 20 point or powers items) or a life piece (at least 60 point or power items). Every 5th bomb piece is replaced with a life piece.

Lives and bombs are gained piece by piece. The player requires 3 life pieces to gain an extra life. 8 bomb pieces grants the player an additional bomb, and this amount never changes. Bosses may also drop bomb or life pieces. The game also features Spell Practice mode, and each stage does not have to be finished in order to unlock it for Practice Mode, with attempting it's enough.


After various games being based on ShintoBuddhism and finally Taoism, the theme of this returns to the Shinto mythology. Part of the game's characters are mostly based and even depicted as apparent descendants of gods in Shinto, including Susanoo-no-Mikoto, Amaterasu and Tsukiyomi-no-Mikoto. The game's story of a powerful storm incident mostly has something to do with the descendant of Susanoo, who happens to have the ability to manipulate various kinds of stoms at their own will, as well as sand.

The japanese name translates to Eastern Divine Sand Storm, which depicts the events as of godly nature.


For dialogues, check: Touhou 16: Unpredictable Arcane Storm/Story

The story of Unpredictable Arcane Storm is about a powerful storm attacking Gensokyo during springtime, and our heroines are sent to investigate the source of this wild breeze. 

The heroine goes towards the Forest of Ancients, attempting to follow the wind's direction. After meeting a mysterious dog youkai, the heroine launches off to the skies for more response from the storm, finding two challenging fairies on the way. After Stage 3, where the heroine encounters the thunder youkai, Raijin no Hikari, the story begins to unravel. In a vast desert ahead of Endless Lake, an inmense shrine awaits, named the Kumano Shrine. Finding various henchmen of the culprit, it is eventually revealed that some sort of indiviual has recently gained full power, sending a global blast of storms that led the sands along with them and caused such incident. Upon entering the shrine and defeating the culprit's right hand servant Saki Suishoko, the heroine finally encounters the source of the storm, being none other than the youkai of sands, Mikoto no Isako, facing her in order to clear the incident.

In the Extra stage, the heroines meet Isako's sister, Mikoto no Megumi. Surprised that they were able to defeat her sister who just had a new inmense power acquired, she challenges the heroines in order to show them "true power".

In the Phantasm stage, the story is quite split in a way from the main story, with Isako unsealing her younger sister, Mikoto no Tsukiyomi, causing the daytime to turn into night in the process. Mad about this, the heroines face off Isako once again and later Tsukiyomi.
