Sengoku Basara 4 will take place in a parallel world of the Muromachi era, which was considered to be the making of the Sengoku era in the history of feudal Japan. We recently got a look at three new characters in Katsuie, Ashikaga, and Sakon, who will be making their series debut in the game. Now, Capcom have shared a peek at another three new characters on their official website.
Starting from the left, we have Yamanaka Shikanosuke, who was also known as Yamanaka Yukimori, and was originally a samurai of the Sengoku era in Japanese history. His distinct antler-like headgear goes with the “shika” in his surname, whch means Deer in Japanese.
In the middle is Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the man Ishida Mitsunari has nothing but great respect for, and would do anything to help him and his army out, for the greater cause.
Finally, to the right is Takenaka Shigeharu. In Japanese history, Takenaka managed to impress Toyotomi with his spectacular tactics in taking over a clan and was invited to join his forces as a strategist. It has yet to be revealed as to what kind of roles the three characters will serve Sengoku Basara 4; however, Capcom will be revealing more details regarding the new characters, sometime next week.
Meanwhile, you can check out the game’s latest trailer, here.
Sengoku Basara 4 is slated for release in early 2014 for PlayStation 3.
