Sakura Wars Mobage will feature a costume changing system and sign ups

A few months ago, SEGA and Red Entertainment made a partnership with Mobage to develop a new Sakura Wars game which displeased many fans in Japan.  However, Sakura Wars for Mobage  will feature a original story featuring several characters from the franchise a new gameplay system that involves changing costumes.

Details about how this  will change gameplay have not been announced as of yet. Signups for Sakura Wars for  Mobage start today and if you register early you’ll get an ultra rare  Sakura Shinguji card. Service for the game is scheduled to begin sometime this winter.

Special Thanks to SEGAFAN for the tip!

The next Sakura Wars title announced

So you have been waiting for the next Sakura  Wars game for a long time and this day has finally come. You ask yourself what console the title will be  on? Well, it won’t be on consoles, the next Sakura Wars game will be ‘browser based’. You can now comment to complain.

The game will be designed by Red Entertainment (Sakura Wars series, right?), Trinity Game Studio (Fist of the North Star Online) is developing and Rocworks (Kingdom Road and Homage Genesis) will manage the game when it goes online. Sure, not as good as a Playstation 3 or 360 game, but you don’t have to worry about importing… right?

As for release date and all that stuff, we will have more information in the upcoming months. If its like the Battlefield Heroes, like actual 3-D and not Mafia Wars cheap-o stuff, it might be good.

We could be seeing Sakura Wars at TGS

People want a new Sakura Wars game and it seems that the series developer, Red Entertainment, has something to announce soon. They updated their blog with a hint about a TGS announcement.

“The next time I handle the blog, I believe I will, for the first time in a while, be able to have a splendid announcement.”

The splendid announcement could be something else besides a new Sakura Wars. Even if its a new game, I doubt it will be released here. I head “Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love” didn’t do so hot.
