Date Masmune, Shima Sakon, and others confirmed.

Famitsu this week confirms the first five characters for Sengoku Basara 4, coming to PlayStation 3 in Japan next year.

The first five characters are Date Masamune, Mitsunari Ishida, Shima Sakon, Shibata Katsuie, and Ashikaga Yoshiteru.

The game is set during the Muromachi period.

Thanks, Re: Gigen.

  • Raoni Marques

    Can’t wait to see how the new characters looks like! Man…do I love this series??

    That smug smile. :D
    Can’t help myself but Masamune Date-dono is still one of my favourite game characters. *lol*

    Did ya know that the first Europeans arrived there at the end of the Muramachi Period (around 1540-60 I believe)? Sadly that’s also where the artillery got much better. Less swords always sucks. :/
    Might be a hint on some new characters.

    • MasterSensei

      Then again my favourite character Magoichi Saica had rocket Launchers,machine guns, and grenades and I don’t think those were created yet.

    WOAH, Senran Kagura coming to PS3? Must buy

  • raulrain

    Senran Kagura 4? well we need more sure but, I think that it´s Sengokubasara 4 buddy :D

  • Luna Kazemaru

    Data i thought it was date :P

  • Rafael Martines

    How I hate Capcom USA for shitting with the series! :(

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    Sigh and they never worked it out with Arc System Works to get “Sengoku Basara X” localized.

    • Rafael Martines

      I enjoyed this game a lot o/ even the game being so broken with shit infinites XD

    Senran Kagura 4?

    Go home, Sal. You’re drunk.

    Also, really surprised Yukimura didn’t get announced in the first line up since him and Masamune are the poster boys for Basara, haha.

      Ohhhh, wait a second! I just checked the Re: Gigen link to verify this and noticed something. It says this just above Sengoku Basara 4:

      PS3・4

      Do they know something we don’t?! I have yet to hear this confirmed for PS4 as well, but that would be amazing if it was coming out on that as well @w@

      • veruses

        Must be a typo.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Or is it?

          DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNN

          EDIT: It’s one thing to accidentally type a “4” instead of a “3”, but come on… They had to go out of their way to add the dot, then include a “4” to indicate it was on more than one platform :P

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Lmao. I somehow missed that reading the above the first time.

      I’ll try and get in touch with Sal to fix that. =D

  • Eclipse

    Sweet, I can’t freaking wait for this!

    I hope that Kojuro will be playable in this one.

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Better be! Having him playable in Utage, then taking him away would be such a tease! Then again… It is a terrible pattern we are in.

      Sengoku Basara 2 = Unplayable Kojuro
      Sengoku Basara 2: Heroes = Playable Kojuro
      Sengoku Basara 3 = Unplayable Kojuro
      Sengoku Basara 3: Utage = Playable Kojuro

      If that tells us anything… We’re screwed =3=

      • Eclipse

        Haha, that’s exactly what I was afraid of!

        It really would be annoying having to wait for the next version of the game just to have him playable. >_<

        • Muhammad Alief

          I hope hideyoshi life again in sengoku basara4

  • new_tradition

    Basara news, yay! ^^

    I’m still deciding to buy the uber HD collection, or just Utage; I read people said it was hard going back to the older games, and I really enjoyed SB:SH/3 as it was D:
    EDIT: lol, Senran Kagura with my Basara boiz? Yes please ♥

    • Tre W

      As a BASARA fan playing since Devil Kings…you’d be better off just waiting with Utage until SB4 arrives. Just look up the stories on youtube and nico if you really want to try and fill some details before 4 arrives…

      • new_tradition

        Thanks for the insight ^^

      Wow. Guess I can be prettttty dumb sometimes.

      I’m going to bed. G’night internets.

    • MosquitoLemon

      I personally really like Sengoku Basara 2 and Heroes (now having played SB3 for over 20 hours…), but you can definitely skip SB1. The Triple Pack is really cheap, so if you have the money…

  • KIngpigeon96

    Hopefully these new characters have cool designs.

  • MasterSensei

    I want Puff to be a playable character again as well as Kasuga (if you know what I mean)

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Give me back my Hanbei and Nagamasa ;w;

  • PrinceHeir

    come on do the right thing Capcom USA and localize this!!

    i’ll forgive you for not localizing E.X. Troopers

  • Bobby Jennings

    Date Masamune*

  • Serovath

    no kasuga no buy :D

  • MosquitoLemon

    Well dang, looks like it’s another game post-Hideyoshi’s death -_-
    Oh well, I’ll never run out of Sengoku Basara at this rate, hahaha.

  • Kobracon

    Oooooh three new characters! Lets see whether they are a slap to the face of Samurai Warriors versions or just plain awesome.

    For those that don’t know:
    Sakon Shima (Samurai Warriors) = Laid back dude with GIANT sword
    Katsuie Shibata (Samurai Warriors) = Gruff short guy with too massive axes.

  • xMCXx

    Yay, new characters!

  • OverlordZetta

    Let the butchering of historical figures commence!

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Yeah, because we all know how musou games portray the characters so well anyway. Oh wait…

      EDIT: Point is, Basara isn’t the only one to “butcher” historical figures in a musou title.

  • Raoni Marques

    A user on Siliconera shared those links, and I’d also like to share the new characters scans here, guys!

      There’s also a Basara event being held this month where the VA of Char Aznable will be making a guest appearance while they discuss gameplay and story elements. We may also hear some more character reveals during the event. If not, then probably in the coming weeks as we build up to TGS in September and see the first trailer for the game.

      • Raoni Marques

        I didn’t knew about that, and that was really some good info! I’ll look forward to it! I’m so eager to see what the new characters looks like.

        Ok Revoltech, now release some more SB action figures cuz I didn’t grab the ones you released and now they are too darn expensive!

  • erickderechter

    oh c’mon make character creation , and for fight style you can choose any from the game character , that will be AWESOME.
