Rising Star Games Is Bringing Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi To Europe

3DS romantic visual novel is the first of two new titles from the publisher

Rising Star Games has revealed that it will be publishing Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi in Europe, following news that Aksys would be bringing the title to North American shores.

Developed by IDEA FACTORY, Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi is billed as a "romantic visual novel" which revolves around helping the lead character Chizuru find true love.

Here's what Rising Star Games' managing director Martin Defries had to say about the news:

We are delighted to be working with IDEA FACTORY again. Their reputation is well deserved and the games we have signed from them are the perfect example of fresh and exciting Japanese creativity that has made Rising Star Games so successful over the years.

IDEA FACTORY’s business development manager Damien Urvois also passed comment:

It is a pleasure for us to work with such a talented partner. With their deep understanding of the Japanese culture and proven track record on releasing ambitious and yet very successful titles, we are convinced that thanks to Rising Star Games, both titles will reach their full potential in Europe.

The partnership will see another currently disclosed title being published by Rising Star Games in Europe. This will be announced "in the near future".
