Four competitors, all vying to be the most special limited edition. Who will emerge victorious?
Warning: image-heavy post ahead!
Here comes our four contestants now: Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom (PSP), Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi (3DS), Hakuoki: Stories of the Shinsengumi (PS3), and Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds (PS Vita).
Now they’re starting their wardrobe changes. Lots of different styles here. Demon goes with a classic full artbook and CD combo. Memories cheers itself on with a fan and towel along with a minibook. Stories goes for elegance with a comb, charm, and hair pin in a sakura-patterned box. Or Kyoto Winds tries to outdo its Aksys brethren with a bento box, furoshiki, CD, and artbook.
But Stories, long thought to be the easy victor, stumbles with the wardrobe malfunction. Lots of ripping and tearing in an otherwise elegant pattern, but Kyoto Winds prefers a cheerful and cute accents.
Each one tackles the “How would you tell your story?” question differently. Demon stumbles with the lack of extras, but Stories picks up major points with its 2-in-1 approach. But will Kyoto Winds‘ half-but-double approach win out in the end?
May I have the envelope please?
In other news, I will be working on a full guide for Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds. So updates may be a little slow as although I have much of it done or planned out, stuff like the Encyclopedia slows me down.
