What’s it about?

Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds known as Hakuouki Shinkai Kaze no Shou in Japan is a historical fantasy Japanese otome game developed by Otomate and published by Idea Factory. Kyoto Winds is a remastered version of the Hakuoki series of games originally released back in 2008. This is only part one of the game, but Idea Factory International has announced plans to release the second half of the game at a later date.


 “1863: As the end of the Bakumatsu period draws closer…
A lone Chizuru Yukimura travels from Edo to Kyoto in hopes of searching for her father who mysteriously vanished. As she ventures through the unfamiliar city in the dark of night, she is suddenly attacked by a gang of samurai. Amidst the chaos, a mysterious figure approaches her, hungry for the taste of blood. As the threat of danger approaches, she is saved by none other than the Shinsengumi. 
After their encounter, Chizuru lives with the men of the Shinsengumi to fulfill their common goal: seeking out her missing father. However, she slowly uncovers the Shinsengumi’s dark secret: the Furies. A group of men calling themselves “Demons”eventually confront the Shinsengumi, standing in opposition to their secret Fury identity. 
Upon meeting these Demons, Chizuru is forced to come face to face with the secrets of her past. This story is about a girl who allies with the men of the Shinsengumi, who are struggling to uphold their faith in an era of rapid social change in Japan.”

final thoughts

PLEASE show Aksys and other game developers that there is a market for otome games in the West, by purchasing this game and giving them your feedback either through social media, by writing a review, making a video… whatever it is that you do! I can’t stress this enough: BUY THE GAME! Don’t pirate it, don’t steal it, BUY IT! 

Nothing shows that we want more otome games in the West better than cold hard cash, so please support this game by buying it from Amazon (US) or by picking up a copy from your local games shop!

If you were thinking about pirating this game…Don’t… It only hurts the otoge fandom, as companies will stop considering localization, and nobody wants that! So, do your part and buy the game!
