SAKURA WARS PREMIUM PACKAGE
NIS America announced today that due
to high demand for dual voiceovers, Sakura Wars will be available in a premium
package with a dual disc setup and a special art cover. Disc 1 will include the
game with English voices, and disc 2 will include the Japanese voice track. Fans
of Sakura Wars can expect a collector’s item art cover for this edition.
Sakura Wars is a Strategy RPG that
features a unique sim-based story system. An in-depth storyline exists, much
like in any other RPG; however, the player’s destiny in the game is not
predetermined. Character interaction plays a major role, and your responses to
the various characters in the game can ultimately change the story content and
even the final outcome.
The battle system is divided into
two main parts; ground combat and air combat. Ground combat takes place using
two-legged mechanized suits, which transform into jet fighters to take the fight
to the sky. Every mech unit in the game can transform from battle mech mode to
jet fighter mode during combat. Once transformed, weapons and movement methods
will change as well. For example, the hero’s ground mode utilizes a sword as his
main weapon, but in jet mode he will use long-range missiles.
8 chapters in total, each with 4-5
hours of gameplay.
A total of 7 characters to
6 different fully animated
Bonus features and story after
beating the game.
