Oh noes: The next Sakura Wars game is browser-based

2:00 PM on 12.11.2010 // Josh Tolentino

Thankfully though, it's no Farmville or Mafia Wars clone, at least not the way it's looking. Called Sakura Wars: Taisho Roman Gakuentan, it's been moved to a school setting and stars a new hero (or heroine) to take up the fight against the demonic hordes in steampunk Japan.

Check out a trailer for the game here. The graphics don't look like too much of a downgrade from the 3D of So Long, My Love

Given the promo art above, you can likely count on cameos by cast members from the New York troupe, as well as folks from installments most westerners were never able to play.

Funnily enough, the shift to the new school setting feels almost predetermined. Valkyria Chronicles, a series produced by prominent members of the Sakura Wars team, also shifted to a school setting in its sequel. It must have been fate.

Well, at least it looks more interesting than the strange Mysterious Dungeon clone that was the most recent entry into the series.

How about you? Are you pumped for this browser affair, or are you still busy getting everyone's routes in the excellent Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love?
