Bilshana Senki Western Release Announced by Idea Factory International
During Idea Factory International’s Online Summer Festival livestream, the company has teased the localization of Bilshana Senki. The English release of the Switch otome game doesn’t have a release window yet. The Japanese name is likely to be temporary as well.
Bilshana Senki is a historical tale that takes place in Japan during the Heian era. As the Genpei civil war is taking place, the Yorimoto and Taira clans fight for supremacy. In this context, the daughter of the Minamoto, Shanaou, will also have to fight. One aspect of the game is that all characters are based on real Japanese historical figures.
Besides the protagonist, the main characters in the game include Minamoto no Yoritomo (CV: Furukawa Makoto), Musashibou Benkei (CV: Umehara Yuuichirou), Shungen (CV: Saitou Souma), Taira no Noritsune (CV: Kawanishi Kengo), and Taira no Tomomori (CV: Fukuyama Jun). The character designs are by illustrator Haneda Kouji, while Red’s Itou Ai (who also worked on Kenka Bancho Otome) is the director.
