Ack! There’s A Bug In My Sengoku Basara 4

By Eugene . November 11, 2013 . 4:04pm



Somebody! ANYBODY! Get out the bug spray before that crazy b— AARGGHH!


In the latest promotional blood-spattered video for Sengoku Basara 4 we get to see a bevy of characters and the special moves they can unleash, including the aforementioned bug-like man Hideaki Kobayakawa—who apparently is actually wielding a freakin’ saucepan and other equally crazy and only-in-Basara characters.


It’s a five minute long slugfest, and should help new players understand that you don’t need to be a combo-mastering god to be able to pull off some of the fantastic moves available to characters in this game.


I do enjoy how Sengoku Basara isn’t afraid to take its “What if” scenarios and run, screaming, possibly buck naked, with them to the bitter end. I mean, if Date Masamune can wield six katana’s at once and ride a steampunk-inspired horse with motorbike handlebars why the hell can’t we have completely impossible situations like “Is she dead, or not?” Oichi or “I can totally transform into my deer pal and use him as a yoyo for all you soldiers” Yamanaka Shikanosuke. It looks like he’ll be pretty easy to master too!


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

    Gotta love the return of HERO OF JUSTICE Nagamasa.

    Matabee’s moves also look delightfully sadistic.

  • MrJechgo

    *face desk*
    Of all the characters in the series, they had to go with THIS GUY?!?
    *deep sighs*

    • DanteMasamune

      Are you talking about the game and Capcom or the article and its contents?

      • MrJechgo

        The series, duh…

        • Thomaz Barros

          What’s there to dislike on Hideaki

          He is absolutely one of the most important figures of his time

          • MrJechgo

            Yeah, only for switching sides…
            He’s a coward, his movesets are just dull and imprecise and he’s just downright annoying…

          • haku67

            I don’t know I think its worth it to see Ishida flip his shit in the last battle.
            lol yeah I was hoping for someone else as well. oh well

          • Thomaz Barros

            His moveset in Utage is awesome though

            There is nothing as awesome as winning against Masamune in the Dragon Race rolling on top giant dangos

    • Julio D. Zulkarnain

      Well, there’s a load of other chars you can use to trample the bug to death later. A dragon, a tiger, a hawk…

      Me, I’d use the Gundam, though. Or the deer (looks fun, dat tennis move).

  • epy

    What a waste of Jun Fukuyama’s voice. I’m not saying you have to be Lelouch in every single role, but cowardly joke characters just rub me the wrong way.

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      That’s lethal joke character to you.

  • Vadim Merzhey


  • haku67

    The new characters look pretty fun. I hope we get kasuga, kenshin, and nouhime. heck I’ll take anyone from sengoku basara 2 heroes. lol

  • Mordina

    Yamanaka Shikanosuke looks like a lot of fun, haha! And the deer is sooo cute!
