Sakura Wars LIPS Guide (COMPLETE)

The new Sakura Wars game is now available, giving fans the first localized entry in over a decade. You can check out our review of the game to see what we thought of this action-RPG dating sim. Since the game has several potential romance options, we decided to make this guide to help players build their trust with each character. Trust not only helps to improve proficiency in combat, but it also gives the option to go on dates. Below, you can see what responses will get you the most trust points in our Sakura Wars LIPS Guide. Keep in mind, responses are in order of when we came across them in each chapter. This is assuming you respond to every character interaction you can find.

There are two types of LIPS moments. There’s the standard LIPS, which will be the most common type in the game, asking players to pick one of up to three choices. Then there is the Analog LIPS sections, which will have the player determine the amount of enthusiasm for a specific response. In our guide, we’ll tell you exactly which option works best for each LIPS section. We’ll even help you out during the special tête-à-tête sections. We’ve organized it by character, and have also included support characters at the bottom. Keep in mind, some of these responses don’t earn trust points and simply prevent losing them. We will also provide safe responses for “fun” scenarios if it’s possible.

Something else to keep in mind. While you can romance all five of the Flower Division members, you can only get an ending with one. If you follow this guide, you can get all the girls to the point of unlocking their ending. If you save the game before a crucial choice in Chapter 7, asking you to choose one of the girls, this will determine the ending you get. It’s also worth noting the one with the highest trust gets an extra date in Chapter 6. It should also go without saying that there may be light spoilers in this guide. Proceed at your own discretion. As of May 2nd, 2020, this guide is now complete. If you see any errors or missing information, please feel free to comment to let us know.
