You are on five, Mrs. Amamiya
Sega seems filled with renewed confidence in its Sakura Wars brand. After years of silence, 2022 has seen the launch of a new PS4 game, brand new anime, and delicious merchandise based on the long-running franchise. It also looks like the editor is just getting started.
The 14th Sakura Wars stream took place this past weekend to coincide with the premiere of the new anime's latest episode. While the stream was mostly focused on the TV show itself, various remarks were made suggesting there were plans for the Imperial Combat Revue in the future. Specifically, Sakura Wars series producer Tetsu Katano referenced a recent Sega survey, noting that fans are already clamoring for a sequel to the latest Sakura Wars video game — a demand that gives him and his team confidence. to go forward. It's probably worth remembering that Sega recently dropped several mystery titles, including Sakura Ishin ("Restoration") and Sakura Wars BLACK
The latest episode of the TV series featured a teasing "stinger", suggesting that the anime adventures of Sakura, Hatsuo, Claris and co. are ready to continue. This will come as great news for Sakura Wars music director Kohei Tanaka, who said during the broadcast that he never wants to stop composing songs for the series. Oh, and speaking of music, it looks like the Sakura Wars Stage Show - previously canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic - is now set to return in Winter 2022.
In summary, it seems that while Sakura Wars will never become the global blockbuster brand Sega might hope for, it has a legion of passionate and devoted fans, alongside a crew that clearly wants to continue its work into the next generation. Despite the PS4 title's undeniable gameplay flaws, I've always had a wonderful time discovering the world of Sakura Wars, so hopefully 2022 represents a new dawn for this very special franchise.
Sakura Wars is now available on PS4. Thanks to DualShockers for information and translations.
