Sega released a new combat trailer for their action-adventure Sakura Wars, coming to PlayStation 4 on April 28.
The trailer highlights the demon conflict that threatens the people of Tokyo. It’s up to the new members of the Flower Division to defend the citizens and put a stop to the evil trying to take over their city. However, there are other forces at play here that are unlike any demon they’ve ever faced.
During gameplay, players will meet Oboro, a warped individual who enjoys torturing others. Also, Yaksha is introduced. She is a mysterious masked figure who resembles someone familiar to the group.
Sakura Wars is a reboot of the JRPG series that began in 1996 on the Sega Saturn. The game has been working on the original creators along with contributions from character designers Tite Kubo, Yukiko Horiguchi, BUNBUN, Fumikane Shimada, Ken Sugimori, Noizi Ito, and Shigenori Soejima.
Sakura Wars has players transported to a 1940’s Imperial Tokyo, where ten years prior, a cataclysm resulted in the loss of the Imperial Combet Revue of Tokyo, which was the capital’s global defense force operating out the Imperial Theater.
Since then, the theater has fallen on hard times and is close to permanent closure. Players will assume the role of the new Tokyo revue and mend the hearts of the troops as well as restore the Imperial Theater to its former glory.
There will be a physical version of the game available for fans in the west that comes with reversible art and a sticker set.
