Who's up for some more Hakuoki?

Don't worry if you're not quite sure how to answer that question, as I'm not sure how to answer it myself.

Still, I'm intrigued. I mean, yet another Hakuoki game is coming to North America--who could've guessed that a few years ago?

The latest Hakuoki game that's being brought stateside, by the way, is the PS3-based Hakuoki: Stories of the Shinsengumi.

As always, Aksys Games is handling the localization. The Torrance, California-based company has yet to announce a release date for Stories of the Shinsengumi, although an Aksys representative recently revealed on that it will be given both a digital and retail release.

My only problem with this announcement: it seems that Stories of the Shinsengumi includes yet another retelling of the story that serves as the focus of the 3DS and PSP Hakuoki titles.

Will any of you be picking up one or both versions of Stories of the Shinsengumi, or have you had enough Hakuoki for the time being?

You know, I'm super happy Aksys is committed to bringing these out, but it'd be great to see more variety! I'm getting a bit of Hakuoki fatigue, and I was never a *huge* fan of the series to start. That said, I kind of want to see the shinsengumi boys on the big screen... said...

Oh, I'm right there with you, Anne. I mean, it's nice that Aksys is devoted to this series, but how about a *different* Hakuoki game? (Others have been released, right? Or do they all cover the same story?) Or, like you said, how about a different otome game altogether? Maybe they're working up to that? Here's hoping...
