Oh, that reminds me! I recently saw the Nendoroid for new Sakura and it comes with the dialogue tree as an accessory.


I just think having the UI as a feature of the figurine is really cute...
I like it when Nendoroids do this.

The Professor Layton I own brought a puzzle and the puzzle solved screen as accesspries

First of all, I've been wanting to say thank you. I've used the bottom image as a background for the Spirit Board I made, and here it is in two parts:

Really good spirit board! From what I know, that looks like a good variety of characters from across the franchise.

Only one question: Do you think the ace spirit would be a singular character, or would we get something like Hero's Party or the Phantom Thieves repping a group of characters at once? That strikes me as an easy way to toss in a bunch of characters at once, be it as a Flower Division spirit, a Fleur Division Spirit, a Star Division Spirit, or some sort of super-general Imperial Combat Revue spirit...

Also, random question: Has anyone seen the anime sequel(?) to New Sakura Wars and is it worth watching?

IDK. I didn't give it much thought because I wanted to focus on the entire Flower Division throughout the Board (I considered a Koubu Spirit, but I couldn't find any artwork.)

Apparently there was a SEGA Blast Heroes Mobile game? it never released.






We ended up with SEGA Heroes which looks 100x worse somehow. Weird.
Can I live in the universe where we got this instead of SEGA Heroes garbage where it took almost two years to get to Yakuza and then the game just closed when it was picking up steam?

So, we're getting a new Puyo Puyo Tetris! This is exciting...

As they continue to add in characters/art from the mobile game, some small part of me is curious if they'll ever import any of the crossover art into the game in some form - not as playable characters, but as avatars and other such cosmetics... I mean, they have Puyoified versions of a lot of Sakura Wars characters just sitting around...

Delightworks announced a game that looks very sakura warish around the same time as black. Sega name isn't attached anywhere so I have no clue if it's related.

Project BLACK and the Delightworks project are both being announced at the same time on sept 2nd

Going to be a weird coincidence if they aren't related.
Is there going to be a livestream or something for us to watch the announcements?

Check out this cool costume of Sakura's Mugen!
Holy moly; that is one impressive cosplay! I wonder how they avoid overheating in it... I'd love to do a Sakura Wars cosplay one day, but I'd definitely be sticking with one of the human characters wearing normal-ish clothing haha.

Mobile game with a new 2011-era cast sounds nice! Hopefully it gets localized, though I'm unsure what the odds of that happening pragmatically is...

The new character designs are fun, though the half-dress-things replacing the mugens is... a thing. I guess if it's a gacha game, then they want you to be able to see the waifus you collect and not just their mugen? Still kind of a weird choice IMO...

u know The last time Sega made a game called Revolution it didn't exactly end well for them.

Come to think of it both are spin offs set in a time period far removed from the rest of the main series casts.

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

We don't talk about that anymore. There was a 7-year gap between VCIII and VC4 where nothing happened. Nothing.

still annoyed Revolution got localized and III didn't

I'm now half-way through the New Sakura Wars anime and I'm... honestly pretty impressed? Lots of great character moments and looks at new dynamics within the squad. I don't know how they'd make it work with the relationship mechanics, but it'd be cool if we could play from the girls' PoVs in the games themselves from time to time, as it has really opened a lot of possibilities for both drama and comedy when not stuck to one viewpoint... Definitely excited to see how the second half goes.

Also here's some loosely-game-spoiler-y art!
