The Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love Premium Pack!

I’m eight months late to the party, but who cares. I’m the first to feature it at SEGAbits!

While SEGA’s Sakura Taisen franchise is insanely popular in Japan, having a number of main series games and spin-offs spanning the Saturn era through to the Dreamcast and Playstation 2, it has had little presence in English speaking regions. The fifth game in the series, Sakura Taisen V: Farewell, My Love, hit the Japanese PS2 in 2005. It wasn’t until 5 years later that the game received a very unexpected English language version. The PS2 received a handsome special edition box (America only from what I can tell) while the Wii received a standard version (which hit both America and Europe). While the game released back in March, it wasn’t until this weekend that I got around to picking up a copy for $30 at GameStop, marked down $10.

So what does this awesome box contain? Let’s take a look!

    Awesome stuff. I heard it sold horrible, so if you want to buy the remaining 500,000 copies out there to see the next upcoming game localized, go right ahead!

    Nippon Software America still has both editions at their shop if you can't find it in a shop

    The shop also has the artbook and poster at their shop, if that's your thing.

    Now, there is a slight difference between the two content-wise:

    The PS2 edition comes with both dub and sub (two discs), while the Wii version is dub only.

    Also, Sanus, please, the next time you talk about the game on the podcast just say "it's cool"! 😛

    I adore this game. It's a shame that a 6th installment seems unlikely at this point.

    I found that it was really tough to track down in stores.
