Today Sega released a brand new trailer of the upcoming Shin Sakura Taisen, which for now is code-named for the west as Project Sakura Wars.
This time around, it’s all about the beautiful and brusque shrine maiden redhead Hatsuho Shinonome.
The video features the character’s own song “Onna!! Matsuri no Kokoroikio” ( which translates as “Ladies!! Feelings of the Festival”), performed by Hatsuho’s own voice actress Maaya Uchida.
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, a music video dedicated to Sakura, more trailers, the latest gameplay, latest 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.
