The series is based on the Shin Sakura Taisen (literally Project Sakura Wars) line of video games. The game, which was created by Oji Hiroi and developed and owned by Sega, was first released in 1996 and has released five sequels and numerous spin-off titles since then. The game series is set in a fictional-steampunk version of Taisho era Japan, where a group of women with magical abilities use steam-powered mecha to combat demonic threats.
The upcoming Sakura Wars anime series is based on the franchise’s latest game released on the PlayStation 4 in Japan last December 12, and will be released to the West on April 28. The game takes place 12 years after the events of Sakura Wars V, in the 29th year of the fictional Taisho era in the game.
