Well, this is a rather surprising announcement. Sakura Wars V: So Long, My Love for the US was announced today by NIS America. Sakura Wars has had the anime released here before, but the games have never had an official release.
Basically, Sakura Wars is a Dating Sim/SRPG. The Dating sim part is the main reason why I never expected this to be released here, but this is a good thing. Hopefully more Visual Novels and Dating Sims come to the US. I would especially like to play the Toradora one for PSP.
The game is set for a fall 2009 release on both PS2 and Wii. Everyone needs to buy it to show that games like these havea market in the US.
