Published in Japan this past December, the soft reboot of Sega’s long-running steampunk mecha series, simply titled Sakura Wars, is set to launch on PlayStation 4 on April 28. It is an action role-playing sport. Along with also a dating sim. Along with also a visual novel. It is Sakura Wars, also Sakura Wars is fantastic.

For all those not familiar with the franchise, Sakura Wars is the narrative of an all-female behaving troop who also fight demons in steam-powered mechs. The show started on the Sega Saturn at 1996, spawning four sequels, many spin-offs, anime, manga, stage shows, books –essentially it was a whole huge thing.

This brand new Sakura Wars match, the first since 2005’s Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love, is a soft reboot of the show, refamiliarizing old lovers and capturing the hearts of a whole new generation. This one seems a little more action-oriented than Sakura Wars games I have played in years past but that is fine with me.

There is a lengthy blog post over in the PlayStation Blog that introduces the several members of the Flower Division of the Imperial Combat Revue and extends over some game principles. If you are still confused only trust me, then we are in for cure.
