Sega and Red Entertainment's Sakura Wars
series has enjoyed great popularity in Japan (witness the Sakura Wars
Dreamcast system), but despite that success, it's never been localized. It seemed that non-importers would never
get to try the long-running strategy RPG series, until NIS America announced plans to localize Sakura Wars V
as Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love
on Wii and PS2.
It is the novelty of a Sakura Wars
game in America, along with the appeal of a mech game set in an alternate 1920s NYC, that sustained us through this trailer (after the break), despite the voice acting. Don't worry, the game will include both English and Japanese!
