Harutoki 5!

September 19th, 2010

Harutoki 4 Perfect Edition for the PSP and Harutoki 5!!!!!! for the PSP have been announced at the Tokyo Game Show! Harutoki 5 is scheduled for next spring. Aagh, I might just have to buy Harutoki 4 PSP, I loved the PS2 version but wanted more, and apparently they’re adding stuff – hopefully new scenes (or voices!!) in the new edition.

It’s set in the Bakumatsu!! I really don’t know how to feel about that, there have been so many games set there I’m almost tired of it :P But since Harutoki has been heavily fantasy-based, I’ll hope that they bring a fresh look at the period (some of the characters are the usual suspects, Sakamoto Ryouma and Okita Souji, but there are some I don’t immediately recognize. AND! They are finally changing the seiyuu!! Very mixed feelings about this too. After playing several games with the same cast I can see why they’d want change, but man, it will be weird not hearing the normal hachiyou. On the other hand, Suwabe Junichi in Harutoki? I’m down with that :D Other seiyuu announced are Suzumura Kenichi, Okamoto Nobuhiko, Tachibana Shinnosuke, and Yasumoto Hiroki.

They also have the following names up, I’m not 100% sure if they’re hachiyou or what:
Terajima Takuma
– Kirio Shun

Abe Atsushi
– Chinami

That’s all I have time for, this weekend was so busy I just saw the news now on Nari Nari!
There are pics up at Dengeki Online and Famitsu.
Oh, and Venuseclipse from Unbroken Hours let me know that my comments are broken, so I will try and fix that ASAP! And here I was sad that no one was commenting :(

    Excited. >.< Do want. Fan of the bakumatsu period so I do wanna check it out.

    Hmmm, I’m surprised and disappointed that KOEI decided to skip over the Sengoku period entirely. Still, Harutoki 5 will almost certainly be excellent compared to other games set in the Bakumatsu, so I’ve adopted a position of cautious excitement for now.

    Harutoki 4 on PSP, though, I’m really looking forward to. :D

    I’m so jealous that you can understand the language to play (and get excited) these games. It seems you fixed you comments section too. ^_^

    Yes, I am very lucky that I learned Japanese, there are so many good games!
    Now I have to find a better spam handler, because deleting them one by one is awful!
