Default Sakura Wars release details

Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love has been given a release date of March 23 2010 on the Wii and PS2. Being so soon after Final Fantasy XIII, many of you may wish to hold off on this game for a while even if you had any interest to begin with.

But if you like having a Japanese language track, you may wish to think again. The initial shipment of the PS2 version will be a special edition that contains both English and Japanese language tracks, as well as an art book, poster, and a collector's box cover.

Any future shipments for the PS2 will be English voices only and lack the special features. Wii will be English only without the frills right from the start. But it is $10 cheaper on the Wii at $29.99 vs $39.99 for the PS2.

Is this based on the TV series? If so, that's pretty cool but surprising at the same time given it's not as popular as others.

The other way around, the series was based on the games. They've just never been released in the US before. This is actually the fifth title in the series.

It's a pretty popular series in Japan. This title received a 37/40 from Famitsu. Also, according to a reader survey that Famitsu did, Sakura Taisen was series their readers most wanted to see a sequel to. (Link below.)

I've had the PS2 game on preorder for months.

I've had this preordered for ages, it's too bad Sakura Wars was finally brought state side but will probably die due to the late timing. I've actually played every Sakura Wars game outside of this one. Hella fun.

I'll probably pick this up, looks cool. Combat looks like Steambot Chronicles... of which i'm still waiting to see what the hell is going on with that sequel. It was announced and now notta.

I'm surprised they would release an English only version as the primary buyers for this game would be wanting the Japanese track on it.
