posted on by Jabulani Blyden
Publisher Degica Games' official Twitter account announced on Friday that it will publish a Steam PC port of Unknown Games' Koihime†Enbu arcade fighting game, which features characters from the Koihime Musō franchise. A demo version of the game is playable at the PAX East convention in Boston this weekend. Degica Games will publish the game on Steam in May.
The game's Steam page describes the game:
Based on the Koihime Musō visual novel, Koihime Enbu features a reimagining of the Romance of Three Kingdoms where the majority of characters are girls. Originally an arcade fighting game, Koihime Enbu draws upon this pedigree to offer players accessible and exciting mechanics that will draw in beginner and veteran players alike.
Fighting game veterans will relish the tight controls and fast combat, providing the possibility of huge combos and devastating counters. Explore the Fatal Counter system that creates additional combo opportunities. With almost every attack being punishable, Koihime Enbu strives to provide a cleaner and more precise fighting experience.
The game will feature 13 different characters, seven assist characters, and the "Fatal Counter" system, which gives special properties to moves, allowing longer and easier combos. Special moves, ex special moves, super moves, and ultimate moves can be used by using the Tactics Meter. Koihime†Enbu will have online matchmaking and local muti-player, as well as the ability to save matches with Replay Mode.
The arcade game featured a story by the staff of the anime version of Koihime†Musō. BaseSon and Unknown Games released the arcade game version in Japan in July 2014. BaseSon, Unknown Games, and Yeti released the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 port of the game in September.
The 2008 Koihime†Musō anime adapted BaseSon's Koihime†Musō: Doki—Otome Darake no Sangokushi ENGI adult adventure game for personal computers. The franchise re-imagines the classic Chinese historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms (Sangokushi) as a "moe (fiery), moe (preciously cute) action comedy" with an almost all-female cast.
There have since been two television anime series based on BaseSon's Shin Koihime†Musō: Otome Ryōran Sangokushi Engi adult adventure game for personal computers. Both Koihime†Musō and Shin Koihime†Musō also inspired video spinoff episodes.
