Story Chapter 8 Guide “Passing the Torch”
Complete story guide to Sakura Wars PS4 (2020) Story Chapter 8 “Passing the Torch“. This guide follows the main story and breaks down the LIPS answers. It is intended to be used alongside the Bromide List and the Sub Event & Trust Event guides on this website.
1.1 Talking with Sakura
“…in a different time?”

“Look after her”
|Sakura and I will save our world.||Sakura▲|
|Sakura and I will live our lives together.||Sakura▲|

2. Intermission Affinity Check
Next, you will see an Eyecatch/Intermission screen. Here you can save your game and confirm the Trust levels of characters before continuing the story.
Depending on who you selected as your Deputy Captain in Chapter 7’s ‘The Flower Division Hits Back‘, Kamiyama will be paired with the corresponding heroine in the Team Status screen.
Just for the sake of this guide, I picked Sakura.
3. Battle Part
2.1 Analogue-LIPS after the long battle

4. The Grand Finale
**Highly recommended that you leave a save on a separate slot at this point in the game. Mostly so you can tackle Koi Koi Wars and any remaining Battle Bot simulations.
**New Sub Events have appeared!
The following Sub Events are actually Trust Events that unlock if you get the corresponding character to appear in your Team Status screen that can be seen during an Intermission. A character will appear in your Intermission screen once you have gotten their affinity high enough.
If you have been following this guide, you should have had all of the characters in your Intermission screen by the end of Chapter 5. Therefore all of these events should be available to you.

Congratulations! You have cleared Sakura Wars on PS4!
Depending on who you selected as your Deputy Captain in Chapter 7’s ‘The Flower Division Hits Back‘, you will see a special Heroine Epilogue for that corresponding heroine.
If you’d like to see a Heroine Epilogue for a different heroine, you will need to load a save that’s before you picked a Deputy Captain in Chapter 7 and then finish the game again from there.
Thank you for reading.
