Project Sakura Wars Opening Movie, First Image Song Released
Sega released two more videos for Project Sakura Wars at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. The first of the videos is the game’s opening movie, which features a new arrangement of the series’ theme along with animation produced by Sanzigen, the studio creating the game’s recently-announced animated adaptation. The second video is the image song for the character Sakura Amamiya. The song is titled “Otome Nan Desu Yo” and performed by Sakura’s voice actor Ayane Sakura.
Project Sakura Wars is set in an alternate world in Taisho Year 29, which would be the real-world equivalent of 1940 had the Taisho era not ended with the passing of the emperor in 1926 (Taisho Year 15). The game takes place twelve years after the events of Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love and ten years after the Great Kouma War, during which forces from Tokyo, Paris, and New York saved the world from supernatural threats. The game is set to be released in Japan for PlayStation 4 on December 12, 2019, with a western release planned for spring 2020.
