> This game is where Sakura Taisen meets Columns. It basically a revision
of this classic Sega puzzle game. Beautiful graphics and cool gameplay
is what awaits you in this, the second Sakura Taisen game (before Sakura
Taisen 2). It's really funny how well this game is selling in Japan;
it seems the Sakura universe can turn everything into a great success...
> High resolution sprites with lots of character portraits (they
go showing as you make lines). In some parts of the game they can be very
spectacular. The story mode is graced with a graphic engine similar to
the first Sakura Taisen (which is excellent).
> The control is just the same as the original Columns ( I think
It doesn't need explanation ^_^). Gameplay is extremely original and makes
the original Columns a lot funnier: as you go making lines you charge a
power gauge. When the bar is charged, you can choose if you want to attack
your rival or defend yourself. To top it off, the characters you can choose
from have different abilities (attack, defense, etc...).
> Lots of voices from Sakura Taisen characters plus wonderful remixes
of the original BGM.
> If the classic Columns was one of the most addictive games, this
new version will keep you in front of your TV for hours... and if you play
the battle mode with friends, you will get double enjoyment.
> The story mode is something you will instantly love. It's a mini-adventure
based in Sakura Taisen where you go through different trials. You can also
make LIPS choices!!
