Project Sakura Wars Coming To North America and Europe In Spring 2020on April 1, 2019 by Reuben Mount
We love a good return of an iconic series, and so we love that a fantastic franchise (that we need more time with) is coming back with Project Sakura Wars. This is the working title of the game at this point, but it is confirmed to be coming to North America and Europe in Spring 2020.
The story of the game 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 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, which we have embedded below.
- – 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.
- – 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.
- – 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. The (admittedly barebones) official teaser site is now live.
