Shanao / Yoshitsune Minamoto

Born the youngest daughter of Yoshitomo Minamoto, Shanao was brought to Kurama Temple upon the death of her father in the Heiji Rebellion. There, the monks were instructed to raise her as a boy who could one day grow strong enough to overthrow the Heike.

Trained and raised by Kakunichi, Shanao exceled in matters of military strategy and in combat.

Despite the expectations of those around her, Shanao has always dreamed of a quiet, peaceful life. Having been torn away from her family at a very young age, she yearns for the love of a family.


Love Catch

The Love Catch system helps guide the player by immediately showing them how their choice has impacted the story. After a choice is made, five flowers, each corresponding to one of the lead male characters, will appear on screen. Open flowers indicate the player's choice has deepened their relationship with that character. The colour on the edge of the frame indicates which character ability has increased as a result of the player’s decision.

*This system can be turned off in the settings menu.


 Birushana: Rising Flower of Genpei will be arriving physically and digitally for the Nintendo Switch on July 1st in Europe!
