posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Sony began streaming the opening movie on Wednesday for Idea Factory's upcoming Hakuōki Shinkai: Kaze no Shō (Hakuoki True Revision: Chapter of Wind) game. The video previews the game's cast and characters, as well as the game's theme song "Ruri no Sora e" (To a Lapis Lazuli Sky), performed by Aika Yoshioka. Takamitsu Ono composed the song and Yuriko Mori wrote the lyrics.
Idea Factory's Hakuōki Shinkai: Kaze no Shō PS Vita game remakes the original Hakuōki Shinsengumi Kitan 2008 PlayStation 2 game. The game has since been ported into the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo 3DS platforms. Aksys Games localized and released the game's PlayStation 3 version in May.
The story of the game and its anime adaptation center around the historical Shinsengumi samurai group in Kyoto during the 19th century.
Idea Factory will release the game on PlayStation Vita on September 25. Sony will release special collaboration models of the PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation TV featuring Hakuoki designs alongside the game's September 25 release.
The Hakuōki anime franchise includes the 12-episode Hakuōki series, the 10-episode sequel series Hakuōki Hekketsu-roku, and the 6-episode Hakuōki Sekkaroku OVA series. The franchise also includes a prequel television anime series and two films that premiered in 2013. Sentai Filmworks licensed the franchise in 2013. The franchise has also spawned seven stage musical adaptations, the latest of which opened in Tokyo in May.
