Today Sega released a small batch of screenshots of its upcoming game Shin Sakura Taisen, which for now is code-named Project Sakura Wars for the west.
Featured in the screenshots are the two new characters revealed a few days ago, Itsuki Saijo and Hiromi Hongo, respectively voiced by Mayu Yoshioka and Haruka Terui.
You can check the images out below.
We also get a comment by their character designer Noizi Ito, who is known for her work on the Shakugan no Shana and Haruhi Suzumiya novel series.
“When I used to play Sakura Wars, I never imagined that i’d be able to participate in a game bearing that name. I’m very honored.
You’ll meet the characters that I designed this time often in the game, so I’m looking forward to see how they’ll get involved with the protagonists.”
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.
