Worried this might get censored since it's on a Sony only console. Probably add a lens flare effect. Laughing

Shame Kousuke Fujishima isn't back to do character designs, but getting Kouhei Tanaka to do the music again is great. Although I wish he made a completely new theme for this cast instead of an altered version of the original.

LET'S DO THIS YOU GUYS

Agree that it's a shame Kosuke Fujishima isn't returning. They could have done worse than Tite Kubo, but for me it's still a solid downgrade.

Ah, so that's what Kubo's been up to. Good on him. Surprising that Fujishima didn't come back, but since it's been so long since "So Long, My Love" it's understandable. Still, good they got Tanaka back as composer (it's just not right without his music). Cool it's coming West too. Can't wait.

Also, since Kubo is doing the design, I can't resist:

-Sakura - Hinamori
-Seijuro - Ichigo
-Hatsuho - Ichika
-Clarissa - Orihime
-Azumi - Karin
-Anastasia - Yoruichi

It seems to me Sega is doing what Nintendo did with Fire Emblem i.e. doing a radical redesign to bring in a broader audience and a new generation of fans.

I would have never expected Tite Kubo doing designs for a Sakura Wars game. Nor do I expected this to be a PS4 game only which I really have to scratch my head. You'd think in this day and age they put this game on the Switch as well.

I wouldn't be surprised if they go the Valkyria Chronicles 4 route and do a Switch release later.

While I can tell they're in Kubo's style, none of the designs themselves strike me as memorable the way his manga character designs did. Anyone else get that feeling or is it just me?

I hope that they'll make musicals featuring voice cast in the roles, just like for the previous games.

If they're doing an Asia release does that mean an english subtitled version for the SEA region as games get from time to time?

Great to see it coming out here. Definitely see Kubo's style in those designs. I wonder how many outfits they'll all have Laughing

I'd be surprised if there was any...Sakura Taisen is probably one of the more tame dating sim type franchises out there. They rarely have had anything remotely lewd or risque, the modern Persona games have been far more suggestive in comparison for example.

ST is closer to like, Tokimeki Memorial lol.

Doubt it. SEGA very rarely does that. It's coming out in the west anyway.

I love Kubo' art and I absolutely love Sakura Wars 1-2 but this just doesn't match up. I don't see Sakura here, it's just a generic anime girl.

Interesting that Tite Kubo is is working as a character designer for a video game. Being that the title of this game is New Sakura Wars I wonder of this would be a good starting point as I never played a Sakura Wars game before.
