The steampunk “dramatic adventure” series that began life on SEGA’s Saturn back in 1996 is returning with a sixth mainline incarnation, bringing us huge action – and huge steam-powered mechs!

The first new entry in 15 years, this one serves as a series reboot, with a fresh cast of characters and a new, more action-oriented battle system.

As fans will know, Sakura Wars goes beyond the action to also include elements of dating simulator and visual novel to proceedings. It’s an intoxicating mix.

Sakura Wars launches for PS4 on April 28. Check out the wild opening cinematic below.
