Kadokawa Shoten has announced plans to bring Elf's 2002 PC adventure title Lime Iro Senkitan Jun to PlayStation 2 later this year, sans the explicit hentai scenes of course. The game takes place during the Japanese-Russian war (1904/05), with the player controlling a rookie commander of a special Navy unit consisting of five girls. Depending on the player's replies during conversations, the heroines will get more or less attached to him. If all this sounds too familiar to Sakura Taisen fans, it should. The similarities to Sega's classic series of strategy/dating simulation hybrids are hardly coincidental.
The PlayStation 2 version of Lime Iro Senkitan Jun will be available in Japan sometime this winter.
