The combat trailer for Sakura Wars (2019) is here! Showcasing the battle segments that the player will be facing after exploring around during Adventure Mode and building strong relationships with their teammates. Here is a description of the combat feature, courtesy of SEGA Press:
“Almost immediately after being appointed captain of the Flower Division, your boss, Sumire Kanzaki, announces Tokyo’s sworn protectors are at risk of being disbanded. You and your squad have one chance to prove yourselves and save the legacy of the Flower Division – by winning the Combat Revue World Games. The Games are an intense, dynamic tournament where combat revues from around the world compete in elaborate stage performances and battle with their giant mecha. They were established with the hope it would foster a spirit of unity between the different revues while also enhancing their public profile, allowing these heroes to take the spotlight and display their combat prowess to the populace.”
- Every match is a three-on-three team battle spread across three rounds.
- You’ll select two squad members who will fight alongside you.
- Each team scores points by defeating targets located around the tournament arena.
- These points contribute to a tug-of-war-like gauge. Win by overpowering your opponent in that gauge or by scoring the most points overall at the end of the match.
