The Sakura Wars series is getting a crossover into the mobile gaming space. Sega announced earlier today “Sakura Revolution,” a mobile game coming to Japanese phones in late 2020.
Sega originally teased the project under the code name Project B.L.A.C.K., gaining momentum for an early marketing campaign. It certainly worked. Sega fans were buzzed with a lot of theories pointing to a new “Sakura Wars” game. The hint came with the promotional video music being composed by Kohei Tanaka, a known Sega composer with plenty of credits for the “Sakura Wars” franchise.
The question is finally answered with the announcement of “Sakura Revolution: Blooming Maidens.”
Sega teaming up with Delightworks dropped a new 20-minute OVA to give the characters some spotlight. The exclusive, Sakura Revolution OVA was animated by CloverWorks.
