Sakura Wars Rescheduled For March, Premium Box Is PS2 Only


sw2NIS America sent us a final release date for Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love, and it isn’t sometime in February like our pre-release copy says. The game will be in stores on March 23, 2010.


The North American version of Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love is being made for two consoles, PlayStation 2 and Wii. However, the two disc premium box containing a poster, art book, and Japanese and English voice acting on separate discs is only for the PlayStation 2. The Wii version has one disc with English voiceovers and none of the goodies. NIS America says they’ll make it up to Wii owners by giving them a “killer bargain.”


Nice to see what appears to be the swan song of PlayStation 2 RPGs for North America get a fancy box set. Bummer that Wii owners won’t be able to purchase the same package, but at least they’re getting Sakura Wars. In Japan, Sakura Taisen V was a PlayStation 2 exclusive.
