2D Anime Fighting + History + All Girl Cast: Koihime Enbu


PlayStation®4 PlayStation®3 [2D Fighting] Release: Sept, 2015

Romance of the Three Kingdoms has been one of the most popular and endearing stories worldwide, with a reach into popular culture in many regions of the world. Stories of righteousness, heroics, loyalty, and deception, this grand historical Chinese saga has sparked the imagination of many.

It's not surprise then, that Koihime Muso exists; originally a visual novel, Koihime Muso is the Rule 63 version which takes  all the famous male characters from Romance Of The Three Kingdoms and reappropriates them into an all girl cast. With this fusion of a famous opus with sharp anime art, one can imagine how popular this spinoff has become.

From Sega, in 2011, an arcade game later ported to the PS3 was created called Shin Koihime Musou: Otome Taisen Sangokushi Engi; introducing a unique fatal counter system, the popularity of it's all girl cast and quick pace action justified the creation of a follow-up: Koihime Enbu. While out in the arcades already, gamers will be able to play this on the PS4 and PS3 as soon as September, 2015.

While a few details have been revealed in this first trailer, the biggest difference from the arcade to home port are the console exclusive character additions of Ma Chao (Bachou Mouki), Le/Yue Jin (Gakushin Bunken), and Zhou Tai (Shutai Yohei); these three are in addition to the full cast totalling for 20 fighters to choose from!

The Limited Edition will come with a Koihime Enbu OST Soundtrack, and more details about this slick looking fighter can be found on the official Koihime Enbu PS4/PS3 website.
