Classic SEGA Music: Persevering

September 10, 2011

Sakura Taisen (also known as Sakura Wars) is the classic 1996 SEGA Saturn role playing game that innovated by focusing on character development and interactions instead of random battle encounters so that the player would care deeper for the cast, or perhaps even love them. You play as Ogami Ichiro, leader of the Imperial Assault Force and are given the mission to end the terror from mysterious enemies based on demon lore in an alternative steam punk version of 1920’s Japan.

This time we will focus on the song from the first battle, Persevering. Hit the jump to listen to some of the different variations and related songs.
