    Did anyone else laugh when Yukimura charges Honda all by himself while Ina and Nobuyuki are curiously looking at each other while walking in circles? Priorities seem to be misplaced, Nobuyuki.

    looks pretty good to me. US release when :V

  • Learii

    I hope this come to US


    I need this in my life

  • RichyGaming

    YES! I’ve been waiting a long time for this! Played Samurai Warriors 1, 2, and 2 empires. And in all of ’em my favorites were Masamune Date and Magoichi. (Thought Sengoku Basara was the Samurai warriors I recognized, which got me hyped lol but NOPE) missed the wii version but it’s totally worth it!

    • Sardorim

      Poor Masamune… I feel bad as I like him a great deal but he still has no one from his clan. Megohime(His wife), Kojuro(His best General), Yoshihime(His crazy mother), Shigezane, or the such would be awesome… C’mon, Koei! Give him someone!

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        His mother wasn’t crazy. She just didn’t want him being head of the Date clan because of his missing eye.

        • Sardorim

          Crazy enough to try and kill him. Though they later made up.

          • Max

            Wow, that’s in interesting side of his history.

          • Sardorim

            Hideyoshi apparently used Megohime as a hostage by making her stay at the Date manor at Kyoto so that he could control Masamune.

  • Masa

    It looks so awesome, damn i’m excited!
    Oh and Lady Nō is looking hot!

  • Alexander Aubert

    localize localize localize

  • Transcending history and the world, a tale of Musou and Basara eternally retold.

    • AAa

      Musou WILL always be eternally retold. Basara will ends at some point, possibly by the time of SB!yuki’s death at Osaka.

      That’s too say. SB5 can always stays at parallel world, and starts ending the series at SB6.

  • YoshEE

    I want this so bad!!! Please announce localization :D

  • Mordina
