Gaze upon the...splendor of Browser Sakura Wars

2:00 PM on 01.14.2011

Sadly, that ellipses indeed denoted some sarcasm, as at the moment the upcoming browser-based Sakura Wars: Taisho Roman Gakuentan doesn't look particularly splendid at all.

That map-thing above seems to represent the main battle interface, with more screenshots available in the gallery, among them some backgrounds from the game's visual novel-like portions.

Of course, one might say "It was a browser-based game, what did you expect?" and they'd be right, but this looks worse than the original Sega Saturn release. Today's browsers can handle better.

Ah well, it's a Sakura Wars game, and we haven't had one of those in any form, awesome or otherwise, in years.
