Project Sakura Wars announced for PS4

Project Sakura Wars announced for PS4

Due out this winter in Japan and spring 2020 in the west.

Sega has officially announced Project Sakura Wars (working title, Shin Sakura Taisen in Japan) for PlayStation 4. The “dramatic 3D action adventure” game will launch this winter in Japan, and in spring 2020 in North America and Europe.

Here is the official English press release:

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 Combat Revues Are Going to War

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 defense force operating out of the Imperial Theater. The theater 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 back 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! Get your first look at the game by watching the announcement trailer.

Key Features
  1. The Most Immersive Story Yet – During your adventure, you will be able to interact with a colorful 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.
  2. A Rewarding Battle System – Armed with powerful mechs known as “spiricle armor,” the gameplay is augmented by a deep and robust combat system that takes full advantage of each squad member’s unique abilities.
  3. An Eye-catching Anime Production – 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.

Here are the first details, via Famitsu:

■ The Curtain Rises on a New Chapter in “Taisho Year 29” of the Imperial Capital!

The steampunk franchise Sakura Wars is set in the fictional “Taisho Era,” where steam-based technology has been developed. This game is both a legitimate sequel and all-new work.

The game is set in the Imperial Capital of Tokyo 12 years after the events of Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love. Due to the “Great Kouma War” 10 years prior, Tokyo, Paris, and New York’s Combat Revue’s were annihilated, but the cities of the world established new Combat Revues, and a competition called the “Great Combat Revue World War” was to be held as a result.

The player will experience the story of protagonist Seijuurou Kamiyama, who leads the “New Combat Revue” and clashes with the “Kouma” that threaten the city’s harmony, as well as with the Combat Revues of each country.

■ Familiar Game Systems Return with Enhancements

The game system is a cycle of “adventure” and “battle” parts. Players will strengthen their bonds with the heroines, and the series’ familiar structure will return with enhancements.

During adventure parts, you can freely explore the Great Imperial Theater and streets of Ginza depicted in 3D graphics, communicate with the members of the Combat Revue, and enjoy various stories. Here, you will strengthen the trust between you and the heroines, which will not only influence the story, but also allow you to gain an upper hand in battle. Of course, the game is full of various elements, including anime movies and mini-games.
