Sega shared its financial results for the fiscal year ended March 2018, and with it came a bit of info stating that a new Sakura Wars game will release by the end of the current fiscal year on March 31, 2019.
The information comes from the Entertainment Contents Business segment’s section about major titles in 2018/3 and new titles to be launched in and after 2019/3. Under the packaged Games part, it shows Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, Shenmue I & II, and “New Sakura Wars (working title).”
In addition to a new smartphone game that released last year, the Sakura Wars IP has been quite active recently with another smartphone game that was stealth-released in South Korea earlier this month. A tentatively titled “Shin Sakura Taisen” was also revealed to be in development during Sega Fes 2018 last month. This is likely the same game that was mentioned in the financial results, but we’ll be keeping an eye out for further announcements.
