Project Sakura Wars, announced in late March, is also at the Tokyo Game Show.
„One of Sega’s greatest franchises is set to take the west by storm when Project Sakura Wars (working title) launches for PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe in spring 2020! A cultural phenomenon in Japan, the long-running series defined the JRPG / romance genre with its memorable characters, masterful writing, and sublime music. Now, a completely new entry is set to grace our shores.
The stage is set in a romanticized version of 1940s Imperial Tokyo. 10 years ago, a cataclysm resulted in the devastating loss of the Imperial Combat Revue of Tokyo, the capital’s global defence force operating out of the Imperial Theater. The theatre has since fallen on hard times and risks closure. As captain of the new Tokyo revue, it’s up to you to mend the hearts of your troops and restore the Imperial Theater to its former glory! With its strong emphasis on character-driven storytelling and relationship building, fans will find plenty to love with Project Sakura Wars!
During your adventure, you will be able to interact with a colourful cast of characters through the dynamic LIPS dialogue system, where what you say and how you say it has a profound impact on these relationships both off and on the battlefield. Armed with powerful mechs known as “spiricle armour,” the gameplay is augmented by a deep and robust combat system that takes full advantage of each squad member’s unique abilities. Complete with gorgeous animated sequences and dramatic character arcs, the story will leave you hungry for what happens next. Project Sakura Wars will feature Japanese voice acting with subtitles in English, German, French, and Spanish,” SEGA’s English press release said of the game in late March.
Via Famitsu and Dengeki, 23 minutes of gameplay was published of the still working title Project Sakura Wars, which will launch in Japan as Shin Sakura Taisen on December 12. The Western release will follow in Spring 2020 on PlayStation 4.
