For many years fans of the Sakura Wars series were wondering whether or not Sega would ever revisit the series since, other than appearing in crossover games, the franchise has been left dormant for over ten years. Well now we know that not only is the series continuing with Project Sakura Wars but it is also already confirmed for western release. Sega has announced that the “dramatic 3D action adventure” will be released in the winter in Japan and in North America and Europe in spring 2020.
Project Sakura Wars will be 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.
