Game description: Sakura Wars is a Strategy RPG that features a unique sim-based story system. An in-depth storyline exists, much like in any other RPG; however, the player's destiny in the game is not predetermined. Character interaction plays a major role, and your responses to the various characters in the game can ultimately change the story content and even the final outcome. The battle system is divided into two main parts; ground combat and air combat. Ground combat takes place using two-legged mechanized suits, which transform into jet fighters to take the fight to the sky. Every mech unit in the game can transform from battle mech mode to jet fighter mode during combat. Once transformed, weapons and movement methods will change as well. For example, the hero's ground mode utilizes a sword as his main weapon, but in jet mode he will use long-range missiles.
Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love combines the epic battles of an RPG with the character interaction and development of a sim game in the free-roaming environment of 1920s New York City. Pilot mechs, perform in plays, and experience action and adventure in this Steampunk Extravaganza.

1.7.4811 Software, OpenGL, Vulkan Cubeb The 2D bits (the visual novel stuff) run perfect on any renderer. The 3D bits (the overworld and the battles) are really only playable on OpenGL, however. Vulkan is often sub 30 FPS at even default resolution. OpenGL cranked up to at least 720p mostly ran at 30 FPS save for some frame drops here and there and was perfect at default resolution. Anything but Software can sometimes cause graphical issues on the 3D bits but nothing too serious. DiamondDust132
