Publisher Sega and developer Delightworks have announced Sakura Kakumei: Hanasaku Otome-tachi, a “dramatic RPG” for iOS and Android. It will launch in 2020 in Japan. Pre-registration is available now via the App Store, Google Play, e-mail, and Twitter.
Here is an overview of the game, via its store pages and official website:
Taisho era year 100.
Japan, which suffered devastating damage in the “Capital Catastrophe” that occurred 16 years ago, has been reconstructed thanks to a new type of energy based on spiritual power, “Mirai.”
However, with the activation of the “New Capital Tower,” the cherry blossoms no longer bloomed and demons called Kouki started to increase in numbers, attacking people all over the country. During this time, the guardian of the people was a government organization called “Great Imperial Combat Revue B.L.A.C.K.” These girls took the country by storm with their awesome live performances while protecting the lives of citizens.
With Mirai and B.L.A.C.K., the people thought that placing their trust in the government will bring continued peace. Although a few have realized that this prosperity was a lie. They call themselves “Imperial Combat Revue.” Bring the government’s real plan to light, and take back Japan!
