New Character Kyogoku Maria Joins The Sengoku Basara 4 Mix

This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine reports that Azai Nagamasa and his wife Oichi, will be Sengoku Basara 4, along with a new character by the name of Kyogoku Maria.


Azai Nagamasa and his wife Oichi both made their debut in Sengoku Basara 2 Heroes, and will be returning in the fourth installment of the game. Kyogoku Maria is known for being Azai’s elder sister, who has the ability to freely control cloth. According to the magazine report, she’ll have the ability to bring out a giant veil from the heavens above.


Just in case you’re wondering why Azai Nagamasa will be returning after he was confirmed dead in Sengoku Basara 3, the fourth game takes place just before the Sengoku period, and will also feature a “what if” history mode, so it’ll be interesting to see how things turn out for the characters.


After progressing through and meeting certain conditions in the Alternate History Mode, you’ll be able to unlock a special “Drama Route”. Additionally, there will also be special events that can be viewed only by  pairing specific commanders together.


Finally, Famitsu also reveals that Sengoku Basara 4 will be adding a branched “Anime Route” for Shibata Katsuie.


Sengoku Basara 4 will be available for PlayStation 3 on January 23, 2014.

    Female characters are always welcome to this series.
    Needs more in fact.

      I really want Megohime to get in. Since she’s Date Masamune’s wife she must be just as crazy and badass as he’s in SB.

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        She will be met with Backlash. The loudest market for this game is fujoshi fan girls who feed of the the amount of implied BL in series. If Masamune ended up with his wife, I can’t say she’ll be all the popular.

  • ム・ラ・サ・キ

    Just searched for info for this Maria.
    Turned out she’s one of those enemy generals. Meaning, err, NPC?

    Her seiyuu is Sawashiro Miyuki BTW.

    • Wappuli

      Yes, she was confirmed NPC.

      • Freakmasta

        But will be playable in Sengoku Basara 4 Hyper!

        • Wappuli

          Yup, just like Yoshiteru and all the other NPC’s.
          Except maybe Mitsuhide, that would just be weird.

  • Gojira Twit

    I don’t know why but the words “anime route” amuse me greatly.

  • Göran Isacson

    That anime route better end with Sanada and Date teaming up to rainbow-punch the villain of the game, that is the only thing I desire from it.
