The new Sakura Wars game, simply known by the franchise title, launched 28 April 2020 in English! A soft reboot, a sequel, whatever you want to call it, the game has undergone quite a few changes from its original iterations from 2D strategy game to making the leap to 3D. The main characters of this new Sakura Wars are designed by Kubo Tite, whom you would know primarily from Bleach.
The story blurb for the game is given as follows:
The stage is set in a steampunk version of 1940s Imperial Tokyo. Only a short while ago, a cataclysmic event destroyed the Imperial Combat Revue of Tokyo, the capital’s global defense force stationed at the Imperial Theater. Now home to the Flower Division, an inept rookie squad who also strives to impart hope on the citizenry with their theatrical talents, the theater has fallen on hard times and risks closure. It’s up to Seijuro Kamiyama as the captain of the new Tokyo revue to lead his squad and restore the Imperial Combat Revue and the theater back to their former glory! With the help of the revue’s five colorful performers, he must rise to the challenge of competing in the Combat Revue World Games, protecting the inhabitants of Tokyo and getting the theater back on track.
