Don’t Let This Lady Tie You Up In Sengoku Basara 4

By Eugene . December 4, 2013 . 2:57pm


Two new characters have been unveiled, much to Masamune’s pain, for Sengoku Basara 4. These two will be non-playable, and apparently boss-like encounters, which is a crying shame as I’d not mind playing as Kyogoku Maria or Ashikaga Yoshiteru.


The lady in green, Maria, is said to be exceptionally beautiful—no surprises then, that her alternate history character looks drop dead gorgeous and controls her silken clothing like a spider queen.


The latter is Ashikaga Yoshiteru, who was the actual shogun of Japan once, apparently. While in real life he probably didn’t do that much fighting, Sengoku Basara’s will have him thirsting for a fight and being super skillful—wielding a changeable weapon-stick that’s at once a spear, at others a broadsword and at thirds a bow that fires freakin’ arrows of light. LIGHT.


No one else tops that bit of craziness right now, I think, in the series. Imagine if he were a playable character who went up against everyone else, but on your terms. Man… That’d be pretty unbalanced.


Sengoku Basara 4 will be out for the PlayStation 3 January 23rd 2014.

    Yoshiteru was known as the Fighting Shogun apparantly, so yeah he possibly did fight quite a bit

  • Sardorim

    It’s too late, I already did.

  • Chiupon

    ugh maria tho

    it sucks she isn’t playable ;u;

    it’s not like we’ll even see this game (i think) thoooo

  • Exkaiser

    I dunno, this game also has a giant robot dude who can shoot lasers…

    • Vadim Merzhey

      And a guy who’s hobby is constucting AT-ATs.

  • DarthSithZero

    I like the color she’s wearing

    • JustThisOne

      For some reason, she reminds me of Poison Ivy, ala Uma Thurman from that Batman movie. I hope she makes silly silk and cloth related puns! :>

      “What’s this? You look a bit wrapped up!”

  • Soyeon

    so basically capcom is gonna make an updated ver later with those two (and more i’m sure) as playable characters

    • Slayven19

      You know it.

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      Not really updated. The story mode won’t be entirely intact.

  • new_tradition

    I remember the first time I saw Maria randomly appear in that short teaser trailer with all the other ladies, I was confused as heck.

    I know with so many crazy characters in the series this is strange to say, but Maria doesn’t look like a SenBasa character to me, let alone being related to Azai Nagamasa xD

    I do like her music theme, though :3

    Ahhhhh…I’m getting excited for this game ♥

  • Lifestreamer

    Ashikaga Yoshiteru…
    Just by hearing his voice you understand his badassery, it’s freacking Shuuichi Ikeda (Shanks, Char, Hiko Seijuro…), what’s up with him and the red color? Lol.

  • Slayven19

    She looks pretty good, and for some reason I guessed from the beginning after looking at the vid that she might not be playable.

  • Servant BerserCAR

    “Don’t Let This Lady Tie You Up…”

    You can tie ME up anytime, Lady. ( ̄Д ̄)

    • Altin

      Same here man, same here…

  • Sakurazaki

    Those legs… <.<

  • Göran Isacson

    The shogun looks pretty interesting: a real boss-character that looks like he’s got some really unbalanced and OP moves, more like an actual action-game boss rather than a character that’s supposed to be playable. I am a-okay with that, and his crazy triple-weapon.

    And Maria looks interesting too… one wonders if she will have any references to her christianity in the game? Perhaps she will be converted to Xavii-nism? Or is her peculiar middle eastern stage/music supposed to be a reference to that part of history… somehow? Or will they just flat-out ignore it and basically just make her a hot dominatrix because reasons?

    • colorblindnightmare

      I’m going to go with the last part.

      • Göran Isacson

        Ha ha, yeeaah this is Sengoku Basara so “reasons” is probably likely.

  • Don

    was that char?!

  • Vash bane

    that looked cool I would really like to get into this series the guy in blue has a cool voice

  • colorblindnightmare

    This is why this series wins the Dynasty Warriors clones, the characters, combat and music!
