Despite its immense popularity in Japan, we’re willing to bet there’s a chance you haven’t heard of the Sakura Wars franchise if you live almost anywhere else. Here’s a quick refresher: the Sakura Wars franchise tells the story of the Imperial Combat Revue (specifically the Revue’s Flower Division), a group of mecha pilots that fight in a secret war against demons. When not fighting, the Flower Division are performers who put on theatrical productions for the public.
“Localization for the Western release of Sakura Wars was similar to another one of our popular titles, Yakuza 0,” Sega of America associate localization producer Andrew Davis said, according to a PlayStation blog post. Sakura Wars will be the sixth game in the Sakura Wars series, taking place 12 years after the events of So Long, My Love.
