Ngl, I’m just covering these for the songs and wackiness
Sega has released another new trailer showing off the mech-riding gals preparing to kick names and take ass in upcoming mobile title Sakura Kakumei: Hanasaku Otome-tachi – or Sakura Revolution.
This typically off-the-wall preview shines stage lights on the squad members that make up Sakura Revolution’s Flower Divisions – talented artists, warriors, and scientists who like to take time out from their muses to battle inter-dimensional demons. A common lifestyle that we can all relate to.
With the help from the trailer’s teeny-tiny English translations, the eight women of the Flower Division are identified as (in order of appearance) Moemi Washu, Sudachi Sana, Benishi Hijikata, Riho Oigawa, Uchika Tateyama, Tatsuji Takasaki, Mutsuha Mogami, and finally Mana Jujimachi. We also get a glimpse at each of the ladies’ strange “Spiricle Dress” mech armor. I think my favorite is the piano-powered Tatsuji Takasaki. What say you?
Most importantly, the new video finally gives fans their first look at Sakura Revolution’s gameplay in action. While I have previously suggested that it would liberally borrow Fire Emblem Heroes‘ concepts, in actuality Sakura Revolution appears to be more grandiose from a visual standpoint, with custom teams of characters engaging in turn-based battles with monstrous adversaries.
Sakura Revolution will launch in Japan on iOS and Android platforms in late 2020. Sega is yet to announce a western localization, though one would not be out of the question, given the publisher’s current desire to grow the Sakura Wars brand globally.
Oh, and also…
