Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds Steam Port Launches August 24thon August 9, 2017 by Max Williams
Idea Factory has announced a Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds Steam port! Kyoto Winds will be coming to PC on August 24th, complete with a week-long 30% discount! There will also be a Deluxe Bundle, which includes the Deluxe Pack, and a Complete Deluxe Bundle, which includes both the Deluxe Pack and ‘Winds Treasure Box’ DLC.
Here’s an overview of the game from the Steam page:
In this historical fantasy visual novel, you play as the young Chizuru, determined to find her father amidst the drama of Kyoto in the Bakumatsu period. Romance the famous samurai of the Shinsengumi as you uncover their dark secrets and come face to face with the mysteries of your past. In this text adventure, choose from a variety of narrative choices and branching storylines that unlock 30 different endings.
This remastered telling of the beloved, visual novel Hakuoki series that was first developed and released in 2008 focuses on the story set in Kyoto. Now, you can experience new characters, love interests, and episodes in the world of Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds with updated graphics for PC in English, Japanese, and Traditional Chinese!
The DLC packs will also be available separately. Here’s a look at what they contain:
– PC Wallpaper
– Character Art Collection
– Event Scene Collection
– Mobile Wallpaper
Previously-untold bonus stories for 6 of the 12 routes:
– Hajime Saito
– Heisuke Toudou
– Sanosuke Harada
– Shinpachi Nagakura
– Susumu Yamazaki
– Hachiro Iba
That’s some pretty neat extra content! I wonder if this means there’s a possibility the follow-up game will release on Vita and PC simultaneously. Kyoto Winds alone has plenty of excellent story to get stuck into before then though!
