Sengoku Basara 4 Crazy As Ever, Has Castles That Pop Out Of The Ground

By Eugene . December 9, 2013 . 3:30pm


Every army should have its own special, over-the-top skill to complement their already-zany masters, right? Last we looked, we had a glimpse of the Tower of Guns, The Great Wheel formation and other types of special enemy forms that you’ll encounter in Sengoku Basara 4 and the newest video shows off more of the types players will encounter in the game.


There’s that crazy all-woman army of Ii Naotora’s most likely, with a spinning-spear attack even Yukimura can’t get out of, amongst other more… esoteric… variants of troop formations.


As if that weren’t enough, we also have modular castles that pop out of the ground—since lever technology was clearly more advanced in the past than it is now—and even mini-games such as gunning down foes while on a minecart. There’s even a first-person mode of what looks like Hondam Honda Tadakatsu’s Cannonfire mode!

    The arcade shooter section on Kanbei’s stage looks utterly ridiculous.

    I love it.

  • brian

    This series may have become the epitome of “can’t find this sh*t anyplace else” and I’m in love with it because of that.
    I’m pretty excited for this~

  • Michael Connell

    Seeing as the chance of Capcom localizing this are pretty much nil, I’ll be importing this. Now let’s see how far my partial Japanese literacy can get me…

  • zac za

    23rd not 3rd

  • Julio D. Zulkarnain

    that Katsuie vs Date racing section is intense

  • DivinePhoenix69

    Its a shame that Kenshin and Kasuga are once again demoted to NPC’s in this game, but its awesome that they brought back Hideyoshi, Hanbei and Nagamasa, and i still cant wait to use some of the newcomers like Sakon, Katsuie, and Naotora.

    Definately be importing this since the chances of Capcom USA localizing it are extremely low as of now.

    • They can always make SB4 Utage 2 or something and make everyone playable.

      • DivinePhoenix69

        I wouldnt be suprised if that actually happens tbh lol.

  • Orange_man

    I am glad that Sengoku Basara is still 100% historical accurate!

  • Raoni Marques

    Anyone knows where I can get the edition with the Vergil costume online? I’m importing the heck out of it.

  • colorblindnightmare

    I swear, everytime I say “Basara cannot get anyote Bizzare/Absurd” they up the ante. Well done Capcom. Now localize it.

  • fairysun

    I am surprised Japan did not conquer the whole world at that time :P. I mean, come on with that kind of sorcery, even Persia and Egypt wouldn’t stand a chance. Well, maybe China had a chance, with their Dynasty Warriors XD

    • Virevolte

      Well, it was probably the same in other countries. Want to see them teaming up against the Pharaoh and his god fire bird technique ?

      • Göran Isacson

        … I now desire to see a Dynasty World series. It would perhaps be the most over the top thing to ever exist, and I would be cool with that.
