Just a couple days ago, Aksys Games announced that they will localize the PSP edition of the reverse harem visual novel Hakuouki. It will be released both on UMD (all game discs are region-free and will work with the three basic PSP models) and on the Playstation Store. It will include the original spoken Japanese dialogue, as well as optional dubbed dialogue.

I'm not sure what I think of this announcement. I have been hoping that more companies would release visual novels and romance games on consoles. There's a modest number of boy x girls (harem) games on consoles in English, and barely any girl x boys (reverse harem) games on consoles in English. But from everything I've heard, Hakuouki does not include any form of complex gameplay. And I'm not sure how many people will be willing to buy an interactive story. Especially since so few companies have confidence that they can sell games on PSP.

Here's to hoping they don't bastardize it. This is a godsend, and i'm looking forward to it. Even if the second season was rather mediocre, I enjoyed both seasons of the anime adaption.

There isn't enough otome games, yeah. Hopefully Hakuouki does well enough that the companies will slowly start advocating more types of genre over here.

edit: There's a poll asking what the fans want in the limite edition. You can find it here

Hakuouki is a niche game, so I would be surprised if companies other than Aksys release it.

But since the PSP system is region-free in regards to games on UMDs, as long as you have a PSP that will play current discs, you should be able to import it with no difficulty. Also, if you can access the US Playstation Store, then should be able to purchase a digital copy.

The Limited edition was worth it too, the artbook is awesome, haven't listened to the CD yet though.

Hakuouki is a reverse harem story. Like most visual novels, it is told through words and pictures. The main character can make occasional decisions which affect the story. There is no complex gameplay.

I did a web search for 'Hakuouki' in order to see how quickly I could find an important website that stated this. The current Wikipedia article doesn't clearly state much about Hakuouki's gameplay. But the description on Amazon is simple and clear.

I'm enjoying it myself~! I hear the LE is selling out on Amazon, so hurry up and find a copy if you haven't yet! ;p

Also, what could this mean for the future of otome games in the US, or visual novels in general? I hope this sells so we get the fandisc or the PS3 version. :x

I also got the game. Someone finally wrote a walkthrough on how to get each guy. I think I'm going to try and get each one eventually. I plan to start with Hijikata, though. (Even though I quite like Heisuke.)

The game is awesome! I think I've gotten most of the endings and so far, they creators of the game have stayed true to each man's personality and how he would react throughout each chapter. ^_^
