This 'ere Sakura Wars trailer has rootin' tootin' hollerin' dub, y'all


And it's so cute it could cut a gopher from its hole!

But if yer gonna be one of them durn sticks-in-the-mud who's a-lovin' them crazy moon languages, NIS America has ya covered, seein' as it's a-comin' on two discs, one with the yoo-ess-ay dub and one with the moon dub. That's value fer ya right there.

Seriously though, this game is great. It's ludicrous that Sakura Wars games have taken so long to cross the pond, especially given that all the other related products have made it. I'd normally ask you to temper your expectations, given that by the time it comes out here it will be nearly five years old, but it's held up very well.

If you're somehow offended or dissatisfied with the way lovely Gemini Sunrise speaks, remember that this is a game about a Japanese navy officer leading a squad of steam-powered transforming flying mecha pilots who work as Broadway actresses during the day, defending New York city from demons. Subtlety is not  a key feature.

The bad news? Rumors say that the game has been delayed from November '09 to March 2010, for no discernible reason. I've contacted NIS-America for a response. In the meantime, you can hit the jump for one of the game's FMV scenes, just to get a taste of the "Sakkra Wors" brand of awesome. [Mild Spoiler Warning]
