Touhou Lost Word uses a “gatcha” style of gameplay for getting additional characters. Pre-registering for the game will help players earn more currency to give them an upper hand before starting the game. Otherwise, the in-app purchases range from $0.99 – $89.99.

Touhou Lost Word’s pre-registration campaign includes several tiers. Pre-registering can be done through email. The first tier at 10,000 users unlocks Reimu and Marisa, who can be raised up to five stars. After that, an additional 10,000 users will unlock additional Seal Crystals and coins.

At 50,000 users, players can unlock one Story Card, and then another Story Card at 150,00 users. At 200,000 users, players can unlock 20 Seal Crystals, 7,500 Coins, and one Story Card for the Lively Temple Grounds.

All pre-registration content will be given out after the game launches. If more than 200,000 users pre-register, the developer will add more unlockable tiers. Only those who pre-register will receive these bonus items.

Touhou Lost Word is a free-to-play game but has in-app purchases. The game brings together multiple illustrators and musicians to help bring the game to life.
