Koihime Boom

When Shin Koihime Musou: Otome Taisen Sangokushi Engi was announced for PS3, we thought it'd be sent to die. But we're happy we were wrong, as the game received a warm welcome from GODSGARDEN and the fans.

As of now, Kazunoko, KSK, Kami-chan, Naruo, Pekos (the Tekken player), Ren (BlazBlue player), Machabo (the Fei Long and Guilty Gear player) all play Koihime Musou. It also marks the first time these players all play the same game.

GODSGARDEN already streamed 40 hours of Koihime Musou since launch on February 20.

While cute characters is important factor, that's not all of it. The game is fairly simple to get into and watch. No gimmick. A lot of ground game. No comeback mechanics. No out-of-place character to create bad matchup. Long combos only start with Hougeki. It's Samurai Spirits with Focus Attack (called Hougeki in this game) without fancy systems. (We actually have how to play here.)

For those outside Japan who want to try, the download version of the game is available on PSN for 5,800 yen. A sequel of the game will come out some time this year for the arcades.
