Sakura Wars: Get Cozy With the New Loungewear DLC Costumes
Sakura Wars, the newest entry in Sega's iconic franchise, available now on PS4, gets new relaxing DLC costumes for all the new Flower Division members.
Sakura Wars got a new DLC costume update, one that will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, along with a touch a comedy. Reflecting the game itself. This new DLC will bring loungewear costumes for Captain Kamiyama, Sakura Amamiya, Hatsuho Shinonome, Anastasia Palma, Azami Mochizuki, and Claris.
These costumes are sure to up the anime romantic comedy feel of the game, all while displaying each character’s tastes and personality. Some might say it’s best to wait until a second run to activate these kind of goofy DLC stuff, but goofiness is also part of the Sakura Wars franchise so why not run with it.
Screenshots of these Sakura Wars DLC costumes are included below. As a reminder, these costumes aren’t technically brand new as they were first added to the Japanese version of the game, before now reaching the western one.
Be sure to check out our interview with the Sakura Wars team, where we chatted how to make a reboot and sequel to such a legendary series, the localization, possible ports, and much more.
I’d also personally recommend reading the joyful Twitter thread Sega has been publishing this past week, reflecting on the past of the series:
All this week, we're looking back at the mainline history of #SakuraWars!
It all began with Sakura Wars. Released for the Saturn in 1996, it blew away all expectations to become an influential classic still revered in Japan to this day! pic.twitter.com/6cffRpuTcV
