Finally! Sakura Wars comes to the States, and appropriately it’s the one that takes place in New York

It’s finally happened! After years of waiting we finally get a Sakura Wars game to come to America! The game they’re bringing over is Sakura Wars 5: So Long My Love. It is the 5th game in the main series and in a way, you can say it’s the most appropriate one to start with for an American audience; seeing how this game focuses on the American branch: New York’s Kagekidan the Hoshigumi (who are all named after constellations). I’m really pleased that we’re getting a Sakura Wars game; though I am hoping for a dual language option. I’d like to thank the good folks at NIS America for making it possible and expect great work from them regarding the translation. I’ve heard the game will be released for Wii and PS2, and I’m wondering which console to go for if it’s true. Wonder if there’s any big differences between the two; doesn’t make sense that they’re doing a dual release to appeal to a wider audience since they’re not sure how it’ll do. In any case here’s a few photos to help inform you of the game:

While I don’t know too much on the story of the game, I will say this: I hope it does well so that they’ll bring the rest of the series over, or at the very least encourage them to bring other series over that normally they wouldn’t like maybe a key game or two; and yes more eroge for our PSPs in English!!
