Project Sakura Wars Elise

Sega is on a roll with its reveals about the upcoming Shin Sakura Taisen (Project Sakura Wars in the west), and they released another trailer focusing on Berlin Revue captain Elise.

The trailer showcases Elise’s character song “Tetsu no Hoshi” which translates as “Iron Star,” which is quite appropriate to the martial theme of the Berlin Revue, immediately setting the mood for the character. 

The song is performed by Elise’s voice actress, the popular Nana Mizuki who will lend her voice to Fragile in the Japanese version of Death Stranding, and is known for many roles like Ann Takamaki in Persona 5, Excela in Shining Resonance, Paz in the Metal Gear Solid series, Hinata in the Naruto series, and more. 

Incidentally, we also get a quick look at her anime version on top of her 3D looks.

You can watch her in action below.

In other Project Sakura Wars news, a new livestream which includes new reveals will be aired on  October 11 at 8:00 p.m. Japan time. 

The livestream promises more reveals on music and songs, alongside additional information. 

You can find the embed below and follow along. Of course, you’ll also find a report here on Twinfinite as soon as it finishes.
