During its livestream today, Sega announced a Japanese release date for Project Sakura Wars. There were also some other reveals, including that the game’s combat will be significantly different to that of the rest of the series.
Citizens of Space brings quite a bit to the table, offering players an impressive variety of systems with which to engage, and turn-based combat with many unique ideas and a myriad of options.
