Siliconera - Aksys On Bringing Hakuoki: Demon Of The Fleeting Blossom Overseas

Siliconera writes, "At Anime Expo, Aksys announced they are localizing one of Idea Factory’s Hakuoki titles. Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom is the PSP version of the very first game in the series. Why did Aksys pick Hakuoki? That’s what we covered in this interview."

I haven't heard the term otome, until I read about that rumor and Aksys publishing a otome game. I usually don't like reading/watching manga/anime reverse harems, but maybe a game would work... (I know otome means something like maiden's game or something close, not reverse harem lol)
Notable lines from the interview:

Siliconera: Don’t all otome games have hot men?

FdW: These are especially hot men.

Siliconera: The PSP market though, from a retail perspective, is having a tough time. I keep hearing retailers don’t want to stock PSP games. Even Gamestop is scaling back on PSP titles and this game is a new genre. How does Aksys plan on tackling distribution issues since Hakuoki will not be available until next year?

AV: Just seeing the tail end of the PS2, Persona 4 was the last major game, I would say on the PS2. We have to come full cycle and we want to end the PSP on a good note. With a bang…

FdW: … of hot men.

Anyways good to see something like this come stateside :)
