Sega has unveiled the latest game in the Sakura Wars franchise at this year’s Sega Fes.
The new game is titled Shin Sakura Wars, and it’s set for release on PlayStation 4 in winter 2019 for Japan and in spring 2020 for the west. Featured above, you can view the announcement trailer for the game.
Here’s a rundown on the game:
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!
