In the third installment of the Sakura Taisen series, Ichiro Ogami goes to Paris, to command the pretty girls of Paris Kagekidan (Flower Assault Squad), led by the lovely Erica. Just as in Japan, this special unit has a complex base which is disguised as a theater, since the girls of Paris Kagekidan can can act on stage as well as pilot huge steam-powered mechs. An unknown evil is threatening the city, so it's time for Ichiro to take command and save Paris from the demonic threat.

Sakura Taisen 3 retains the basic gameplay style of the series, being a hybrid of dating-oriented role-playing (with timed responses during conversations with the girls, and the possibility to conquer the heart of one of them), and strategic turn-based battles. The game features fully 3D graphics for the battles and the map of Paris (although the locations in adventure mode are still 2D still images). The interface for the battles has been modified: you can move your mechs physically on the battle field instead of pointing and clicking, and an action points-based system replaces the "two different commands per turn" style of the first two games.

The game's subtitle Pari wa moette iru ka? ("Is Paris burning?") is an allusion to a phrase spoken by Adolf Hitler to his general Dietrich von Choltitz during the liberation of Paris in August 1944; Hitler had requested that the entire city be destroyed in accordance with his scorched-earth policy before the Allied forces arrived in the city, an order which ultimately went ignored. The phrase is also the title of a 1965 book about the events of the liberation written by Larry Collins and Dominique Lapierre, which was made into a film the following year by René Clément.
