Newsaka is a remote human colony situated beyond the colony of Draco III. It was the homeworld of Spartan-IV recruit Hideo Wakahisa. Humans hailing from Newsaka are known to possess distinct physical features.
As evidenced by its only known resident having a Japanese name, the planet's name may be a portmanteau of "New Osaka".
