Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds: Ryouma Sakamoto Walkthrough

Ryouma Sakamoto is one of three new characters introduced in Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds, the first half of a two-part remake of Hakuoki for PS Vita. He’s an intriguing character based on an equally fascinating historical figure: a revolutionary who played a key role in Ishin Shishi rebellion that ultimately toppled the Tokugawa shogunate and brought about the Meiji Revolution. 

In Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds, Sakamoto is a charming, handsome, romantic character who offers a fresh new perspective on the Shinsengumi and the Bakumatsu conflicts as a whole. Getting his true ending can be a bit tricky, but this guide should hopefully help you out.
