New Sakura Wars Game Will Launch Before March 31, 2019

Sega has confirmed they’ll release their new Sakura Wars game next year.

The news comes via their latest financial report, which lists the game as releasing within this fiscal year – which ends on March 31st of 2019.

Other games listed in the report are Yakuza 6: The Song of Life and the modern re-releases of Shenmue I and Shenmue II.

The last and fifth game in the series was Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love, which saw a release on the PlayStation 2 back in 2005. It was finally localized five years later by NIS America, and later ported to the Wii.

The series has been known for genre-hopping and mashing up various themes, including various tactical role-playing, dating sim and visual novel elements. So Long, My Love even included mecha that the heroines pilot in combat.

We’ll keep you guys posted.
