Today, during a stage event hosted by Sega at Tokyo Game Show 2019, the publisher showcased a large chunk of gameplay of Shin Sakura Taisen, which will be released in the west as Project Sakura Wars.
The demo is partly similar to what we saw a few days ago, being an unlimited build of the show floor demo (which I played, and it was awesome), but the player takes a different route and meets different heroines in the adventure part of the game.
We also get to take a better look at the battle part, in which which our hero is accompanied by Azami Mochizuki.
You can check it out below.
If you’d like to learn more about Project Sakura Wars, you can enjoy the beautiful anime opening cutscene, the latest trailers, the earlier gallery of screenshots, another gallery, the latest gameplay reveal, the previous one, and an earlier gallery of screenshots and art.
You can also check out some awesome artwork by main character designer Tite Kubo and the second batch of character sketches.
Incidentally, we recently heard that one of the sources of inspiration for the battle system is the opening animation of Sakura Wars 3, which you can watch here.

The game will launch in Japan exclusively for PS4 on December 12, and in the west in 2020.
