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.
