Today SEGA released a trailer showing off Sakura Wars over the top combat. You will play as Seijuro Kamiyama, and face many looming battles. Soon after being appointed captain of the Flower Division you discover the division is a risk of being disbanded. You and your squad have one chance to prove yourselves and save the legacy of the Flower Division
The Games are an intense, dynamic tournament where combat revues from around the world compete in elaborate stage performances and battle with their giant mecha. They were established with the hope it would foster a spirit of unity between the different revues while also enhancing their public profile, allowing these heroes to take the spotlight and display their combat prowess to the populace.
The Flower Division can expect to face particularly fierce opposition from the combat revues of Shanghai, London, and Berlin. The rules are simple, though the path forward is anything but:
Every match is a three-on-three team battle spread across three rounds.
You’ll select two squad members who will fight alongside you.
Each team scores points by defeating targets located around the tournament arena.
These points contribute to a tug-of-war-like gauge. Win by overpowering your opponent in that gauge or by scoring the most points overall at the end of the match.
