A fabulous interactive otome game-type visual novel for Windows and Macintosh, fully translated to English! Yo-jin-bo ("The Bodyguards") is set in feudal Japan where the Mochizuki clan is wracked by a war of succession, and the clan princess -- a tomboy notorious for her misbehavior -- is the first target for assassination. The central storyline of Yojimbo involves the princess's three eccentric bodyguards' attempts to save her from the sinister machinations of her would-be assassins. In the game you play the character of Sayori, a more-or-less ordinary high school student who is spending her summer vacation helping at an archaeological excavation. One day in the ruins, you happen to notice something shining half-buried in the mud. When you look more closely, you realize it is a pendant, and you pick it up . . . And thus the story begins.
That night, a girl appears to you in a dream, begging you to save her. She is Hatsuhime, princess of the Mochizuki clan, and she was murdered a hundred and fifty years ago. The pendant that you found is the only thing she left behind. The next morning, you wake up in a place you have never been before - a place that still feels strangely familiar. You are living in Hatsuhime's time, in Hatsuhime's castle, in Hatsuhime's body, and it is your job to save her from her tragic destiny. It seems impossible - until you meet a group of wandering samurai...
In Japan the Yo-jin-bo game has inspired two drama CDs, two music CDs and a graphic novel adaptation. The three bodyguards are voiced by some of Japan's top voice talent including Hiroki Takashi (Hunter x Hunter), Hideo Ishikawa (Bleach, Kingdom Hearts), and Masakuzu Morita (Gundam Seed Destiny).
This popular game, in which you play a modern girl who is transported into the body of a princess in feudal Japan whose life is being targeted by ninja assassins. In order to save poor Hatsuhime, you must befiend several rough-around-the-edges ronin types and get them to help you. An innovative game with many choices and potential endings, and a large cast of interesting characters. Like the outstanding Animamundi, it's compatible with both Mac and PC, too!
