Today Sega released a new gallery of screenshots of the upcoming RPG Shin Sakura Taisen, which is codenamed for the west Project Sakura Wars.
First of all, we take another look at the Berlin Revue, including its main members Erin and Margarete (designed by Fumikane Shimada of Girls und Panzer fame) and its mecha named Eisenjager.
Secondly, we take a look at Azami Mochizuki and her Mugen mecha, specialized in hand-to-hand combat, running through the battlefield and punching enemies both on the ground and in the air.
Her special attack is “Mochizuki Ryuu – Ninpou Musou Shuriken” which launches countless shuriken wiping out the enemy.
Last, but not least, we move to Anastasia Palma. Her Mugen is armed with a gun and a rifle concealed within a parasol. It specializes in ranged attacks and melee with the parasol.
Her special attack is “Apólyto Midén” which translates from Greek into “absolute nothingness” which locks onto enemies and knocks them down in a straight line.
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, 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.
