SEGA revealed this week that the long-awaited reboot of Sakura Wars will be released in the west on the PS4 on April 28th, 2020. Running nearly 25 years, the IP has had a place in the SEGA library going back to the end of the Genesis days. This game was released last year in Japan, making it the first since 2005. Now we're getting Sakura Wars in North America and Europe in about two months. Enjoy the announcement trailer below!
The Imperial Combat Revue takes the stage as Tokyo's defense force against a demon threat in this extravagant adventure. Soldiers in wartime, but theater performers in peacetime, the Revue's Flower Division is not living up to their legacy and is at risk of being shut down. As newly appointed captain Seijuro Kamiyama, it's up to you to turn the team around. During your adventure, you'll interact with a colorful cast of characters via the dynamic LIPS dialogue system (a trademark of the series), where what you say and how you say it makes an impact both on and off the battlefield. This flows into the high-energy combat system, featuring giant steam-powered mechs called the "Spiricle striker" that can only be piloted by those with strong spiritual power.
