Eastasiasoft have recently announced that they have partnered with Idea Factory in order to release Hakuoki: Chronicles of Wind and Blossom onto the Nintendo Switch in North America and Europe.
Originally released in Japan, Hakuoki: Chronicles of Wind and Blossom combines both Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms and Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds, of which have also been released outside of Japan on Windows PC and PS Vita, into a single collection. This localized Nintendo Switch release of these otome visual novels will also feature revised English localisation based on player feedback from the original localized releases.
About: Two legendary visual novels come together in Hakuoki: Chronicles of Wind and Blossom, a remastered compilation of Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms and Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds, each among the most beloved entries in the acclaimed Japanese otome series. Players take the role of young heroine Chizuru as she is surrounded by the handsome warriors of the Shinsengumi. As battle ensues, who will emerge victorious and who will claim Chizuru’s heart?
Embrace the political and interpersonal drama of feudalism while navigating romantic scenarios and witnessing events inspired by Japanese history, brought to life through beautifully illustrated cutscenes and passionate dialogue sequences. Explore multiple story routes across both epic visual novels, renowned by long-time fans of the series while serving as a standalone jumping-on point for new players.
Hakuoki: Chronicles of Wind and Blossom will receive a physical release via Play-Asia (with pre-orders expected to open in the coming weeks), but the game will be available digitally from the Nintendo eShop once released later in the year.
