    I really hope this gets localized. Would absolutely love another Sengoku Basara game to give me even more of an excuse to keep my PS3 hooked up well after I’ve already purchased a PS4! Not like my backlog won’t take me a year to clear up in the first place but… Details!

    • Budgiecat

      It’s Crapcon we’re talking about here…

      • GhostNomad

        A MAN CAN DREAM!

  • Eclipse

    Sweet, I’m happy to know that T.M. Revolution’s back for the OP!

    I’ll definitely be pre-ordering the hell outta this as soon as it’s listed.

      T.M. Revolution is the only choice for Basara’s OP. *thumbs up*

      • TetsuyaHikari

        Couldn’t agree more with you guys, haha. It’s kind of hard to imagine Sengoku Basara without Takanori Nishikawa now.

        • Tre W

          It’s kind of funny, considering SB2 was my first BASARA game (I don’t count Devil Kings), and yet that was the one release where Nishikawa wasn’t involved in anyway.

          • TetsuyaHikari

            Yeah, that had ummm… Who was it? High and Mighty Color, I think?

            • Kobracon

              Yes it was.

          • futuristic_imagination

            But if you played SB2 Heroes, you got Nishikawa in his band Abingdon Boys School in the opening. So that counts right? :)

  • TetsuyaHikari

    I’m glad “early 2014” turned out to be January instead of like… March or something. This is great. This means I can play this before getting a PS4 in February and playing games like Ryu ga Gotoku: Ishin :3

    • Budgiecat

      *steals your PS4*

      • TetsuyaHikari

        You can’t steal something that doesn’t exist :P

        • Budgiecat

          I activated my stand “Time Odyssey” and went into the future and stole your PS4

          • TetsuyaHikari

            Too bad you don’t have such a thing :P

            • Raoni Marques

              Actually, he does. Seen it myself!

  • Learii

    come to usa please

  • TetsuyaHikari

    Hrm… Can anybody tell me the full name of the female in the video? I’ve watched it twice, but all I can make out is ‘Naotora’ I think? Apparently her seiyuu is Maaya Sakamoto too, haha. Pretty surprising. It took me a second to pick up on that.

    Maybe I’ve just grown used to her Lightning voice or something ><

    • Eclipse

      Her full name is Ii Naotora.

      Haha, that’s quite the ear you have! The character that I most associated with her voice would probably have to be Ryougi Shiki.

      • TetsuyaHikari

        Oh, it’s just “li” ?! I’m really not familiar with females in Sengoku history, haha. Thanks for clearing that up for me though. I look forward to trying her out!

  • Rafael Martines

    Capcom Japan Why you so godlike? Scandal *__* remember the last Bleach Openings *__*

  • Raoni Marques

    I really like the characters design on Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors, but dude….Capcom’s designers are friggin’ beasts. Love all the characters in the game, and I can’t wait to play the heck out of it

  • Kobracon

    Chick with a big sword? In a Basara game? YEEEES!!!!!

    OMG Basara 4 is going to be amazing….

    Editing as I watch:

    Masamune: Holy crap you can do move+Triangle in the air now?? AND Magnum from the air as well?! Hot DAMN!

    Yukimura and Mitsunari: Somemore air attack possibilities, nice.

    Sakon Shima: OMG he looks fun…a kicking mode and a sword mode? Sweeet

    Ii Naotora: I….I think I’m in love….

  • Asura Drago

    We HAVE to get this released overseas! a game where hideyoshi is playable in the sengoku basara series for the ps3 is super awesome!
