New Sakura Wars Game in Development at Sega

New Sakura Wars Game in Development at Sega

A new, mainline Sakura Wars game is currently early in development.

During Sega's fan festival today, the company announced a new Sakura Wars title is currently very early in development. However, this is an official Sakura Wars sequel that will continue the main storyline.

According to Sega's CEO, the new Sakura Wars game is planned for 2019 "or later." So presumably we have very little actual story details or even a good sense of what the game will look like. But considering that last official Sakura Wars released was Sakura Wars 5 in 2005, this is a welcome surprise for fans.

The announcement of a new Sakura Wars games follows the news that Sega is releasing a HD remaster of Shenmue 1 and 2 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Unlike the new Sakura Wars, the HD re-release is scheduled for 2018.

Sega also announced early details for the Sega Genesis mini, but didn't announce specifically which games will be on the platform. This is a developing story and we will have more details as we get them.
