Product Details:

Japan's Edo Period was drawing to a close. The shogunate, who'd held power in the country for more than 200 years, found itself challenged by the imperial court, and by several domains who had chaffed under shogunal rule. In this midst of this political unrest, an organization rose to prominence: the Shinsengumi. Originally formed to protect the street of Kyoto from dangerous ronin, they came to represent the last, tragic bastion of the honor-bound samurai culture that had defined much of Japan's history.

In Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom, a young woman comes to Kyoto in search of her missing father, and soon encounters danger and the Shinsengumi in quick succession. When it becomes clear the Shinsengumi are also searching for her father, she is put under their protection. But odd things are afoot in Kyoto - possibly even supernatural happenings. Can she navigate this maze of mortal danger and political intrigue? Amidst so much mystery and death, can she find romance?

Key Features:

  • One of North America's First Otome Games: Experience a historical fantasy adventure while pursuing a relationship with one of several male love interests in a game specifically created for a female audience - one of the first of its kind localized for North America.
  • Experience a New Kind of Adventure: Enjoy a visual novel filled with beautiful illustrations and changing character portraits. Examine character biographies, check your story progress, and replay scenes you've already watched.
  • Chose Your Own Fate with Multiple Endings: The story is told through the eyes of one young woman, but the player will be presented with a number of decisions she must make. The result of these choices will determine her ultimate fate, and the fate of the men of the Shinsengumi.
  • Introduction to the Hakuoki Franchise: Hakuoki is a series that enjoys major popularity in Japan among the gaming populace. Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom has even received an anime adaptation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST GAME EVER This was my first visual novel and I am well impressed, it was truly addictive and suspenseful even after already seeing the anime! (Which is a must see by the way). At first I was a little turned off by the whole "no gameplay thing" but once I got used to the idea and gave it a try I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. This game has one of the best storylines I’ve ever seen in games, and don’t worry there is a lot of action in this game as well as romance! It's a samurai war story after all. My only advice is to know what you’re buying before you purchase this game, understand what a visual novel is and get used to the idea before playing it, I would recommend this game to people who like history, romance, a good storyline, samurais, anime fans, onimusha gamers, and psp owners in general, I'm not going to give away any spoilers but this game is mainly for a female audience though I do believe boy gamers could still play it. This game does have an anime series based off of one of the character paths in this game which is a great bonus! I HIGHLY recommend this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I could not stop playing this game! Ok I'm not gonna lie, at first it seemed a little slow and odd because you have to read a lot and it's just different from the games I typically play, like Skyrim. The plot is so addicting and the characters are just awesome. It's very different and cool because since it's an Otome game, you have several male characters you have to develop a romantic relationship with one of them and you have this thing in the game where you can check your romance status with the different characters. It's just such a good game and it was totally worth buying, if you liked the Television show of Hakuoki, then you would love this game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did not disappoint! I'm a fan of otome games and visual novels and I was so happy to find out that one of the popular ones in Japan would be translated to english. I'm not exactly a fan of Hakuouki but I needed to give it a chance because it was the first PSP otome game in english and I hoped that if this one fared well then more otome games would soon follow. I didn't have high expectations for this game but when I actually got to playing I was blown away. The graphics are beautiful, the sounds were great too. The plot was very enjoyable and I found myself getting really into the game. I really hope more otome games will come in english! They're probably my favorite things to play haha :) Hopefully games like Starry Sky, Uta no Prince-Sama and more will follow! Oh and one more thing: this game isn't exactly a game. You don't get to hack at bad guys and mash all the buttons to beat a level or whatever. It's a visual novel and a great one at that :) I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally!! Worth the buy! Bought the Limited Edition and it was worth every penny! I've waited years for an otome game to come to America. The plot and characters are great! And the graphics are AMAZING! I love this game!! I really hope this isn't the last otome game to come to America. This is deffinetly more centered towards female gamers since you play a girl and there's romance but I'm not one to judge if a guy tries it or likes it. Anyways, I recommend it! (p.s. thank you Aksys Games for translating!!!)
