Koihime Enbu RyoRaiRai Announced for PlayStation 4 and Windows PC Release

Degica Games, in addition to Unknown Games, have recently announced that an ‘overhauled’ version of the 2D Sprite-Based-Arcade-Fighter Koihime Enbu will be released on the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC next month.

Scheduled for release on the 12th July 2018 Koihime Enbu RyoRaiRai will improve the roster of characters being making 14 playable characters and 8 assist characters; but more importantly Chōryō, or Zhang Liao, and Kaku will be added to the game with their own story. Koihime Enbu RyoRaiRai will also mark the first ‘western console debut’ of the Koihime Enbu fighting game franchise as the the franchise has previously had fighting games for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in Japan with the more recent Koihime Enbu making its western debut on Steam. It’s also worth noting that a ‘Koihime’ anime series is also available for Streaming on Crunchyroll and has been released on DVD in North America by Sentai filmworks.

The warladies of ancient China are back in Koihime Enbu RyoRaiRai, an overhaul of firm fan-favorite Koihime Enbu, released on Steam in 2016.

This updated version not only bolsters the roster to 14 warriors and eight assist characters with Chōryō and her strategist Kaku adding a new layer to the fighting action, but it also represents the much-requested international debut of the series on the PlayStation 4!

Chōryō, or Zhang Liao, was historically respected as a great general, and if you believe RyoRaiRai, also a heavy drinker from Kansai. Nonetheless, it’s her name that is at the heart of “ChoRaiRai”, a literal warning that ‘Chōryō is coming!’. This historical phrase goes someway to telling of her bravery on the battlefield and now you can fighting game fans have the chance to recreate that legend when the game releases this Summer!

Koihime Enbu RyoRaiRai is the culmination of extensive updates to the arcade game to rebalance and provide an even an experience even truer to the original’s concept of being a universally accessible fighter.
