Project Sakura Wars Announced for PS4, Coming Spring 2020

Sakura Wars 6 is coming to North America.

It's Sega's annual fan festival in Japan and the company just announced the next Sakura Wars game. Currently dubbed "Project Sakura Wars," the next action mech entry is coming in Spring 2020 to the PlayStation 4.

Sega released a brief trailer for Project Sakura Wars. In it, Sega revealed that the new game takes place 10 years after the last Combat Revue was lost, suggesting it's a direct continuation of the Sakura Wars saga. We see two unfamiliar faces, a man with two swords and a woman who appear to be the lead protagonists.

Elsewhere in the trailer are some familiar sightings. Giant robots, monsters, and an anachronistic retro-futurist Tokyo. No other details were released at this time, however. Sega did put up a new official website for Project Sakura Wars, but it only has the game's title and Spring 2020 release date.

It has been 15 years since the last Sakura Wars title, though technically Sakura Wars: So Long My Love didn't release in North America until 2010, five years after it came out in Japan. It seems we won't have to wait so long for Project Sakura Wars to come to the west following a Japanese release considering Sega put up an official North American website.

Sega confirmed a new Sakura Wars was in development last year, but this is the first we're seeing of the project. Project Sakura Wars boasts 428: Shibuya Scramble director Jiro Ishii as the game's story writer, manga artist Tite Kubo (Bleach) as character designer, music from Kohei Tanaka.

We'll have more info about Project Sakura Wars in the future, but until then fans can rejoice knowing there is a new production of the combat revue coming from Sega in the near future.
