Shall we not participate in the reboot of “Sakura Wars”? I received such an invitation from Sega in 2016. lost. I was troubled. Am I eligible for that? “Sakura Wars” is the first Japan Game Grand Prix work, and it is a title that opened an era as a pioneer. 3 years since then. I stand in the place of this challenge. The reason I decided was that it was the Sega producer of “428” who spoke. “428” challenged the legendary work “town”. And “New Sakura War” will challenge the legendary “Sakura War”. Now the curtain goes up.

Story composition: Ishii Jiro

With the evolution of technology, the direction of the story and the times are also changing. I hope this challenge will deliver a new “following dream” to you. I am very much looking forward to it.

I am looking forward to the new work of Sakura Wars. The strange story like Sakura Wars is that youth is required as a scenario writing, and I always thought that “Jijii is tight” even in the previous work. This time it is good to be rough cutting, so I expect a youthful scenario with momentum! Even so, for the first time enjoy Sakura Wars with a fan’s eye view! I’m glad!

Even though I should have forgotten, that phrase will come back to my head in a momentary moment. And memories of those days.
Sakura Wars is one such work for me.
It was also a novel and cross media development.
New Sakura Wars come back after more than 10 years.
I am very happy. It is the first place in the general election.
People who have been waiting and new ones are surely excited, harahara, laugh and cry.
Preparations for the PlayStation are also welcome.
