ryoma Feudal Japan is a hot setting and video game companies have different takes on it from the romance series Hakuoki to Sega’s more RPG-like Yakuza Restoration. Senran Kagura maker Marvelous AQL has a wild spin on ther era called Bakumatsu Rock.

Here are some of the characters and voice actors confirmed for the game:

Sakamoto Ryoma (Kisho Taniyama)
