News: Japanese feudal fighting coming to the PS3 and Wii.
Capcom has announced that Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes will be released for the PlayStation 3 and Wii on October 12. Similar to Koei's Samurai Warriors series, the Sengoku Basara series retells some of Japan's major battles in the beat 'em up style:
From the producer of Devil May Cry 4, Hiroyuki Kobayashi, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes finds players picking up the arms of more than a dozen samurai heroes each with their own unique weapons and battle styles. Players take on hundreds of worthy opponents and combat fantastic bosses across numerous battlefields in a quest to rule all of 16th century Japan. Utilizing upgradeable weapons, masterful special moves and deadly Basara arts, players leave their mark rewriting Japanese history in blood.
Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes is actually the third game in the series. The first, which was titled Devil Kings in America, was released on the PlayStation 2 back in 2005.
We'll have more soon.
