Idea Factory International has taken to introducing three newly romanceable characters, and have also detailed their upcoming limited edition version of the game.

A remastered telling of the Hakuoki visual novel series, Kyoto Winds follows the young Chizuru; a girl determined to find her father. Along the way however, she’ll meet some men that may help fill the void in her heart in different ways. In this iteration you’ll be able to experience new episodes, characters, and love interests – including the three “hunks” we’ve got to introduce below.

Let’s get introduced, shall we?

First up is Shinpachi Nagakura, a self-proclaimed “beef cake” and the 2nd Division’s Captain. Just as good inside as he looks on the outside, this one might be a keeper!

Then there’s Keisuke Sanan, an icy young colonel whose stare moves his subordinates. He may be cold, but he sure is handsome – so maybe you’ll be able to melt through the frosty wall he’s put up around himself.

Finally, we’d like to introduce Susumu Yamazaki; a stranger and mysterious ninjutsu practitioner who happens to support the Shinsengumi from the shadows from which he dwells. Susumu’s dedication to his cause is strong, but his dedication to Chizuru might be stronger.

Now that we’re past those character introductions, you might remember that we’ve also got details on a Kyoto Winds limited edition to share with you. This limited edition will be available for pre-order beginning on April 18th, and will include the following items for its $72.99US price-tag;
