Following the game’s reveal earlier today Sega and Delightworks released the first gameplay trailer of Sakura Kakumei: Hanasaku Otome-Tachi, which translates as Sakura Revolution: Blooming Maidens.
Not only the trailer shows plenty of gameplay, but we also take a look at cutscenes and we get to listen to the theme song “Sakura Hikaru Revolution” performed by Aki Hata.
The trailer also showcases many more characters compared to today’s reveal, which isn’t surprising considering that this is a mobile gacha game for iOS and Android.
The gameplay comes in turn-based tactical JRPG flavor, which should actually be welcome among older fans of the series.
You can watch it below. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy the anime prologue and announcement trailer from earlier today.
Sakura Revolution: Blooming Maidens will release in Japan this year for iOS and Android.
The game is set in the 100th year of the Taishou era (71 years after the latest Sakura Wars game). Japan has been devastated by the Imperial Capital’s Great Disaster 16 years before, and it was rebuilt thanks to the energy based on spiritual power named “Mirai.”
Yet, following the building of the New Tower of the Imperial Capital, cherry blossoms have stopped blooming and attacks from demons have intensified.
As people all over the country are endangered, the government approves the formation of the Imperial Floral Revue B.L.A.C.K, with the goal of both protecting the people and mesmerizing them with their live performances.
While the peace created by Mirai and B.L.A.C.K. reigns, some realize that the sense of security is misleading. The new Imperial Floral Revue is formed to unveil the governments’ conspiracy and restore Japan.
