Yo-Jin-Bo ~ The BodyguardsOtome visual novel set in feudal Japan

Yo-Jin-Bo: The Bodyguards is one of the rare Japanese otome visual novel games fully translated to English! You play Sayori, an ordinary high school student who is spending her summer vacation helping at an archaeological excavation site. She stumbles upon a magical pendant that transports her through time into feudal Japan, in the role of Hatsuhime, princess of the Mochizuki clan, who's about to meet her tragic destiny.

Mochizuki clan is facing turbulent times and Hatsuhime's life is being targeted by ninja assassins in a war of succession. It seems that the protection of Muneshige, the strongest swordsman in the Mochizuki clan, won't be enough so additional samurai come to her aid as bodyguards.

A word of warning: Yo-Jin-Bo The Bodyguards is not the kind of game that takes itself very seriously. Breaking the fourth wall is common, numerous pop culture references are made and the guys are constantly causing the princess (and the player) to wonder whether these are really samurai or a bunch of clowns. If this sounds like fun, you'll probably like the game. If not, there are other otome visual novels.

 

Features:

  • timed choices
  • multiple endings
  • a story featuring action, drama, and romance
  • the romanceable bodyguards are voiced by some of Japan's top voice actors, including Hiroki Takahashi (Kikumaru in “Prince of Tennis”), Masakazu Morita (Ichigo in “Bleach”), and Hideo Ishikawa (Itachi in “Naruto”, Leon in "Kingdom Hearts")
  • many songs feature male vocalists
  • compatible with both Mac and PC
