Aksys chose a rather appropriate date to release Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom in North America. Their romance game will arrive on February 14 aka Valentine’s Day.
Hakuoki follows Chizuru Yukimura who travels to Kyoto in search of her father. When she arrives she meets the Shinsengumi, a group of young men who keep the streets safe. Just in time too because strange things are going on, but somehow Chizuru still has time to find the man of her dreams. That’s the game’s core, after all.
If you’re not familiar with Hakuoki or the otome genre read our interview with Aksys where Frank "Bo" deWindt II and Ben Bateman speak… passionately about their work.
Comment: Yeah, this news is a couple of weeks old, but I wanted to post this anyways for peeps who might not have heard about the original game that spawned the anime adaptation. MOAR VNs, YES!!
Aksys has also been putting out some hysterical promotional stuff here. I'm so looking forward to this! XD I hope this release leads the way to them localizing the Hiiro no Kakera series as well.
