Character redesigns unveiled for 2016 game

Idea Factory announced its new Hakuōki Shinkai: Hana no Shō (Hakuōki True Revision: Chapter of Flowers) game on Tuesday. The company opened a website for the game, which unveiled the game's main visual, and the redesign of the characters.

The character redesigns (with returning cast) are as follows:

Mamoru Miyano as Iba Ichirō

Yuuki Kaji as Sōma Kazue

Daisuke Ono as Sakamoto Ryōma

Takehito Koyasu as Takeda Kanryūsai

Takashi Kondo as Miki Saburō

Wataru Hatano as Motoyama Kotarō

Takuya Eguchi as Nomura Risaburō

Daisuke Hirakawa as Nakaoka Shintarō

The game will feature three additional characters that players will be able to romance, for a total of 12. The game will be divided into two parts, with the first part set in Kyoto, and ending with the escape from the capital. The second part will be the flight from Edo to the north in the final campaigns of the Bōshin War.

The game is slated for release next year on the PlayStation Vita.

Hakuōki Shinkai: Hana no Shō is a sequel to Idea Factory's Hakuōki Shinkai: Kaze no Shō PS Vita game. Both games remake different parts of the original Hakuōki Shinsengumi Kitan 2008 PlayStation 2 game. The original 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 PS3 version in May 2014, and it previously released the PSP and Nintendo 3DS ports in 2013.

The story of the game and its anime adaptation center around the historical Shinsengumi samurai group in Kyoto during the 19th century.

Idea Factory released Hakuōki Shinkai: Kaze no Shō on September 25.

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 Hakuōki: Otogisōshi anime series of shorts featuring chibi versions of the franchise's characters will premiere in April.

The franchise has also spawned seven stage musical adaptations, the latest of which opened in Tokyo in May.

The Hakuōki SSL ~sweet school life~ high school spinoff game has also inspired a live-action TV series, a musical, and an upcoming live-action film.
