Tokyo Game Show 2019 is about to end, but Sega had one last surprise for fans of the upcoming Shin Sakura Taisen, which for now is titled in the west as Project Sakura Wars.
The publisher released a brand new trailer focusing on Sakura herself which is basically an absolutely adorable music video.
The video features the character’s own song “Otome Nandesu Yo” ( which literally translates as “I’m a maiden” but conveys the meaning of “Hey, I’m a girl, you know?”), performed by Sakura’s own voice actress Ayane Sakura (yes, we’re all starting to see a pattern here).
This is the short version of the song, and the full version will be included in the soundtrack coming with the Limited Edition of the game in Japan.
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, more trailers, the latest gameplay, earlier gallery of screenshots, another gallery, the previous gameplay reveal, another one, and an earlier gallery of screenshots and art.
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.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Sakura Wars series, you should take a look at my dedicated article explaining what it’s all about.
The game will launch in Japan exclusively for PS4 on December 12, and in the west in 2020.
