In the case of the fifth (and final?) entry in the Sakura Wars series, Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love, we're finally witnessing an attempt to bring the series Westward, despite its localization-unfriendly content. An indomitable franchise in Japan, the Sakura Taisen (as it's known in its native country) saga is one that typically does not garner interest from the typical gamer outside of Japan. Now that it's here and primed for release in a country that typically shuns the quirky, will it make the grade? After spending an extensive period of time with a preview build, I'd say yes, most certainly. NIS should have a hit on its hands if this outing finds the appropriate audience."
