Last year, we reported on a game titled Hakuouki: Bakumatsu Musou Roku, which is a Dynasty Warriors-esque take on the Hakuouki series for PSP. In case you missed it, here’s an old trailer that shows what that looks like:
Aksys Games have announced that they’re bringing this game to North America as Hakuouki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi. The game will let you play through two storylines—that of Hakuouki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom (“Shinsengumi Memorial”) and another called “Shinsengumi Chronicle” where you play an alternate universe as the Shinsengumi.
When a character’s life is depleted in Warriors of the Shinsengumi, he enters Fury Mode, which makes him more powerful. However, entering Fury too many times can “unlock a particularly bad ending”.
