Len'en Reiretsuden (Connecting Chain of Raging Spirit Tales) ~ Reactivate Majestical Imperial (鏈縁霊烈傳 ~ Reactivate majestical imperial) is the third game in the Len'en Project made by JynX. As a Len'en game, it features completely new characters and locations separate from the Touhou Project Thwiki.png. The first trial version of the game was sold at Winter Comiket 2013, and the updated public trial version was released on March 19, 2014. The full version of the game was released on October 2, 2014 for free download.

Gameplay[edit]

The game has three playable teams with two team members each, a story mode with 6 stages and an Extra Mode with selectable difficulty – Easy Extra Mode and Extra Mode which can be unlocked by clearing the main game on any difficulty, as well as Absurdly Extra Mode which is only unlocked once the main game is cleared on Unreal difficulty. The trial version is limited to the first three stages and first two teams (Yabusame Houlen & Tsubakura Enraku, Adagumo no Yaorochi & Sukune Katano.)

The game features several new gameplay mechanics. The player can switch between the two members of their chosen team, each of whom has their own attacks, bombs, play style and even power gauge. Team members switch out by activating a bomb or by getting hit by an enemy bullet. The team member that is not currently active is shown at the bottom edge of the screen, and moves to follow the active member. The inactive member can collect power items that fall to the bottom of the screen, as well as ghost items (which can only be collected through this method). Ghost items fill the "Spirit Jar" on the right side of the screen, which provides the player with a brief power-up for a limited time when filled, this power-up varies from team to team.

Story[edit]

Music[edit]

The game features original tracks composed by JynX that mimics ZUN Thwiki.png's style. Similar to the Touhou Project Thwiki.png games, the music room doesn't show the names of all the themes from the first time playing and thus requires to select one theme twice if the player wants to listen to the track. There may be a few melodies in most of the tracks that strongly resembles those from the Touhou Project.

Press[edit]

The first trial version of the game was sold at Comiket 85 Thwiki.png with JynX's Touhou arrangement album 現樂団の往古 〜 束方廻怪綺談 〜 Thwiki.png. A second trial, v0.05a, was released freely to the web on March 19th, 2014. The full version of the game was released on October 2nd, 2014 for free download.

On October 14, 2017, a patch was released, bringing the game to v1.10a. This patch opened the game's text and image resources to allow for easier translation. It also introduced Suzumi Kuzu as an unlockable fourth player character team.
