New Sakura Wars will be shown soon, in “surprisingly good quality” according to Toshihiro Nagoshi

For a while, New Sakura Wars (aka Shin Sakura Taisen) has been in limbo since it’s initial April announcement back at SEGA Fes 2018. Since then, there’s been nothing concrete over what the game is about, with only rumors such as a planned Q1 2019 release date and possibly appearing on Playstation 4 and Xbox One being the closest things to concrete information. But it seems like a proper reveal will happen soon. According to SEGA’s Toshihiro Nagoshi, development on New Sakura Wars has been positive so far, specifically noting how the staff have been “fired up” over the project and how the game is in “surprisingly good quality”. Because of this, it won’t be long until something is announced in the future.

While the reassurance is always welcome, nothing specific has been dropped at this time. So we’ll still need to wait just a tad longer for what New Sakura Wars will be about.

    When someone says that I’m more than worried

    Seeing as Yakuza has proven for Sega to see there’s a strong enough market in the west for strongly Japanese cultural games with strong demand from fans, maybe this could be another strong Japanese Sega IP that could see a western debut finally, it could be the coming out party for the series outside of Asian countries only like India, China and Japan.
    Seems they’re taking it seriously by already suggesting an X1 port could be possible this early.
