According to Haruki Satomi, CEO of SEGA Sammy Holdings, SEGA is planning to challenge new IP on all manner of platforms with its own new titles, and this will include an as yet unannounced game from Yakuza Studio. He also said that fans can look forward to it, but provided no further details. Could it be another madcap beat-em-up, or will it go somewhere entirely different?
If you have been waiting since 2005 for a brand new Sakura Wars game, you might not have to wait much longer. According to SEGA’s the latest financial statement, the new Sakura Wars game should be out before March 31, 2019.
The New Sakura Wars game is listed with other titles that are suppose to release as packaged goods including: Yakuza 6: The Song of LIfe, Shenmue I & II and “New Sakura Wars (working title)”. As far as what the new Sakura Wars will be, it is not known. We do know that Sakura Wars V or Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love featured a brand new cast of characters and a new setting.
I guess we will find out more about the game very soon, expect more information in September during the Tokyo Game Show.
