Sega recently released a new Sakura Wars game for the first time in almost 15 years (although there was a spin-off in between), and now it looks like more is on the way.

As reported by Gematsu, Sega has now filed trademarks for “Sakura Wars B.L.A.C.K.,” “Sakura Ishin,” and “Sakura Kakumei.”

There are currently 6 main games in the Sakura Wars series, although only two have ever been translated into English. The first of those was the fifth game, Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love for the PlayStation 2 and Wii.

In 2019, the series returned from its long hiatus with a new game titled simply Sakura Wars, a soft reboot set 12 years after the previous game that also switched to action RPG combat instead of the tactical RPG combat that had been standard for the series.

Although it got mixed reviews, these new trademarks suggest they’re making more Sakura Wars games.

Personally, I hope one of these new trademarked titles is a remake or remaster of Sakura Was: So Long, My Love. I’ve been dying to play it, but it’s difficult to find nowadays. Continuing the series from the soft reboot sounds more likely, though. Either way, it sounds like Sakura Wars has been given a second chance.

Have you played any games in the Sakura Wars series? What do you think these new trademarks are for? Share your thoughts in the comments.
