Plot Point

There’s an odd ship flying around up in the sky, and it’s rumored to house treasure! Our girls eagerly fly off to investigate, as it’s a win-win situation either way – either they get rich, or they discover and stop the scheme of whomever might be on board. For the first time in the series, new shrine maiden Sanae joins the quest, and it’s become clear by now she becomes a regular.

Unique Gameplay Mechanics



* Certain enemies with UFO marks above their heads will drop little UFOs when defeated, which then start randomly floating around the screen. Some change colors as they fly around, others don’t.

* If you can collect 3 UFOs in a row of the same color, or one of each, doing so summons a large UFO that starts absorbing all onscreen items. If you let it fill itself up to capacity, you get an additional prize on top of what you get for shooting it down! (Don’t take too long to destroy it though, or it’ll leave, taking anything it absorbed with it – this is especially important for bosses, as UFOs will instantly disappear when a boss entrance is flagged.) In this way, you can pick and choose what you need when you need it!
