Project Sakura Wars | Girl in Kimono

At Sega Fes 2019, the company announced that they will be releasing a new game in the Sakura Wars series. Tentatively titled Project Sakura Wars, the game is slated for release on PS4 worldwide in spring of 2020.

The announcement comes alongside a trailer:

The trailer shows off some of the setting, characters and combat. Project Sakura Wars is set in a fictionalized version of 1940’s imperial Japan, with mecha known as “spiracle armor” to use in combat. The player is given the task of reviving Tokyo’s destroyed Imperial Combat Revue and restoring the Imperial Theater, building relationships with the fellow squad members along the way. The dating sim elements from previous games return, with relationships and romance with your teammates having impacts in and out of combat.

This will be the first release in the series since 2010’s Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love on PS2 and Wii (originally released in Japan on PS2 only in 2005), which was the fifth game in the series and to date the only one to receive an official English release.
