Hakuoki fans, rejoice! Idea Factory International has announced that they’re localizing Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms, the second part of Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds! The game is planned to be launched for both digital and retail release in Spring 2018 for North America and Europe.
Chizuru Yukimura travels from Edo to Kyoto in hopes of searching for her father who had mysteriously vanished. Along the way, she encountered the Shinsengumi, and spent the next four years working with them to locate her father. In 1868, the final year of the Bakumatsu Period, the Shinsengumi, with Chizuru at their side, took part in the Battle of Toba-Fushimi to decide the future of the Tokugawa Shogunate against the rising tide of Imperial Nationalism. Unfortunately, defeat for the Shinsengumi came swiftly at the hands of the Imperial Army, and they retreated back to Edo in shame.
The game starts right off from the end of the previous title, as Chizuru and the rest of Shinsengumi are forced with the choice to give up their principles, or instead, their lives. Some of them decided to hide themselves in darkness to protect Shinsengumi’s biggest secret: The Furies!
