"You might recall our review for the PSP title, Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom. Though the visual novel title had some put off by the lack of action gameplay, it was still a fun game for those who enjoy Hakuoki and the genre. We fast forward to 2013 where we see the release of Aksys Games’ latest Hakuoki title. While it does bear some similarities to its predecessor, Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi steps away from the otome genre and gives players that action-y goodness they’ve been craving. But does it offer enough to warrant purchasing if you’re not a fan of Hakuoki?"
