After a rather long wait, get ready folks, because we’re getting a new Sakura Wars game! Sega recently held the Sega Fan Meet-up 2018 event in Tokyo where they made the huge announcement. They revealed that its tentative title is Shin Sakura Taisen, or New Sakura Wars.

The stage event revealed that this will be a completely new game. However, they did reveal that it will also be “inheriting the DNA” of the Sakura Wars franchise. They also revealed that the new game’s story will take place during Year 29 of the fictional Taisho Period of Japan.

However, the stage event didn’t reveal any further details about New Sakura Wars. This means we better expect more announcements in the days to come. This includes the game’s release date, as well as its platform.

The first Sakura Wars game first launched back in 1996 for the Sega Saturn. It inspired several other media like manga, OVAs, an anime movie, and of course, the TV anime.
