So I compiled a list of most frequent SEGA characters in crossovers

Guess where Sakura is?

1) Sonic
2) Joker
3) Sakura
4) Ulala
5) Akira
6) Bayo
7) Selvaria
8) Kiryu
9) Nights
10) Aiai

She's in the top 3 right behind Sonic and Joker, it's pretty insane honestly for a character such as herself. (Was shocked Puyo Puyo characters weren't even in the top 10 honestly)

How is Joker so high up if he's the most recent guy here?

This gives me some hope that Sakura will actually be the next SEGA rep on the roster. :)

Throw me onto the list man.

I've always wanted to play Sakura Wars and have liked the character since playing Project X Zone 1 way back in 2013. Plus her design and namesake heavily influenced my deuteragonist of my story.

I'm getting the PS4 game eventually.
Added both you and P.Kat P.Kat

Something else I just found out is that RED is actually involved with Smash and has been since Smash 4.

They were responsible for the assets from Fossil Fighters and Satoru from Project Hacker appears as a spirit. They own the characters and assets alongside SEGA from Sakura Wars 1-5 so the fact that they've already worked with both SEGA and RED previously would make things significantly easier in terms of negotiations.

A couple of other things I'm wondering is what Mii Costumes would Sakura come with? Obviously she'd come with ones based on Sakura Wars (Then I can finally make the joke Ichiro OgaMii) but what else would she come with? Other SEGA franchises such as fellow RPGs Skies of Arcadia and Valkiryia Chronicles? Maybe the Lloyd outfit since Kosuke Fujishima designed him? Some costumes from RED like the Fossil Fighters, Gungrave and Bonk? Curious to know...

Bruh, a Vyse mii swordfighter would be hype.

Let's get some more SEGA love. Give me a Vyse, Kiryu, and Selvaria Mii costumes. Obviously one for Ichiro as well. Maybe Erica and Gemini could work as a Gunner and Swordfighter respectively?

I’ve been beginning to wonder...

Anyone think the music may run into potential licensing issues if Sakura gets in? Cause I know they might have to consult the actresses to use their vocals and the series is mostly known for it’s lyrical tracks.

Also I’ve been wondering if the music would be kept the same or if there’d be any new arrangements because Japanese audiences can be sensitive about music preservation but I wanna hear thoughts.

Whenever you get a series with iconic vocal tracks this is a concern. It just so happens Lyn and Crush 40 are probably pretty easy to negotiate royalties with.

Besides, there are plenty of tracks without lyrics, and they can always go instrumental on the main themes if needed, like Snake Eater and Mysterious Destiny got.

As long as we don’t get another Dragon Quest situation I’m good lol (But hey I hear Tanaka is actually a pretty nice person unlike Sugiyama so maybe it won’t be an issue after all!)

I imagine the music selection would include mostly tracks from Sakura wars 6 since that's the most recent and they could cut back on remixes since it's all recent.

But I also imagine we'd get both classic and modern versions of "Manifest! Imperial assault force!", "The earth warriors" and the theme from Sakura wars 3 as well as the medley from Sakura wars 4 which has both themes from 1 and 3.

If it’s going to be both Sakuras getting in as alts of each other like a ton of people are speculating, then I could see there being a remix of Amamiya’s theme since they’d get Ayane Sakura to voice her it would make sense to get her for a remix.

Imagine a new remix of the main theme the actresses for both Sakura's sing it.
I was thinking of a remix of Geki that would be an algamation of both versions of it.

You know now that I think about it if she’s actually in what if production on her trailer finished? I’d assume since Sanzigen did the cutscenes for the new game and they came back for Byleth’s reveal trailer (Although you could really tell it was kind of a rush job in certain areas), what if they simultaneously were working on the trailer for Sakura?

Just kinda something that’s been on the back of my mind, and usually animation production has to be done far in advance before the reveals are ready so I do wonder.

So I just finished Shin Sakura Wars.

I thought it was REALLY good, the visuals, music, characters, charm, and overall feel of the game made it feel like a nice return-to-form for the series, it overall felt like kind of a passing of the torch to a new generation which I really liked honestly.

I hope we see further entries in the series that can carry the legacy of the other games!

Regardless I dont think anyone should worry about it being to big for smash.

I think we might get at least 1 or 2 spirits from Sakura Wars (2019/2020)/Shin Sakura Taisen, and they might most likely be Sakura Amamiya and Seijuro Amamiya. Come to think of it, I think they might also put in Geki Teikoku Kagekidan (Shinsou), considering that it’s different from most versions of Kagekidan.

I may support Axel Stone more, but I’d be alright if a Sakura Wars Rep got in! So…you can sorta count me in. Here’s the Classic Mode I made for Sakura:

Classic Mode: Attack! Imperial Floral Assault Group (Fights against characters who are well-known warriors, normally with a higher authority present)
Round 1: :ultchrom::ultrobin::ultlucina:on :castlesiege: (Prelude (Ablaze))
Round 2: :ultridley:x15 on (Sakura’s home stage) (Geki! Teikoku Kagekidan!)
Round 3: :ultpalutena::ultpit:on :skyworld: (Overworld - Kid Icarus)
Round 4: :ultsamus:on Brinstar Ω (Theme of Samus Aran, Space Warrior)
Round 5: :ultfox::ultfalco:(team battle w/:ultzss:) on Corneria (Main Theme - Star Fox)
Round 6: :ultbyleth:and :ultswordfighter:x3 on Garreg Mach Monastery (Advance)
Final Round: Galleom
