Sega is also cashing in on the Sengoku or Warring States craze with a card battling arcade game called Great Battle History Gettenka. On November 25, Sega is bringing the game to consoles. Well, handhelds.
Gettenka Tenkaichi Battle Royale is in development for the Nintendo DS. Instead of being another Love & Berry Dress Up and Dance, this upcoming game does not use Sega’s card reader. Gettenka Tenkaichi Battle Royale takes after Super Smash Bros. or perhaps the Bleach DS games. Four Sengoku-era fighters duke it out on a 2D battlefield. Gettenka Tenkaichi Battle Royale supports download play so four Sengoku doctorates can brawl with one DS card.
One feature that makes the game different is players can customize their character. Before a battle you can equip weapons and items like a sword & shield or a bow that fires a three arrow spread shot.
The ultimate weapon may be… Sonic the Hedgehog. Nobunaga Utsuke can "equip" Sonic as an item and summon him through a magical Sega wormhole to roll over enemies with a spin dash attack.
