[Dailies] Games: Hakuōki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi

Oh well, an otome game! Yay! But it’s quite different than the usual Otome Visual Novel Game of the Hakuōki series. Rather it’s more like an RPG.

Hakuōki is a video game series by Idea Factory, first designed for the PlayStation 2 and then later ported to PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo 3DS. It has been adapted into two 12/10-episode anime series animated by Studio Deen; the first began airing in Japan on the TV Kanagawa and UHF stations on April 4, 2010. The second season began airing on October 10, 2010 and ended on December 12, 2010. The series has also been adapted as two different manga series. A third series based on the prequel, Hakuōki Reimeiroku aired in summer of 2012.

Two new films are scheduled for 2013–2014. Film 1 was released in August 2013 and is released on DVDs February 2014. The film is supposed to be a retelling of both seasons in greater detail and with a slightly different ending. The second film was released on March 8, 2014. The anime series has been licensed by Sentai Filmworks in North America. (Source: Wikipedia.Org)


I remember playing this game way back in 2013, where I played it for hours and days just to reach the end and tried other warriors as well.

This is my most favorite game of the Hakuōki series, because it is an RPG (which I prefer) and I get to roam the map and control my characters. Specially I get to play each character without reading lengthy passages. XD

Because it is basically not a VN, you get to battle different characters and the bonus is, there are new characters!

Lastly, who is your favorite among the Shinsengumis or the Onis? 😉
