Kojuro slices and annihilates in new footage.

Capcom has released a new gameplay video of Sengoku Basara 4, showing the “benevolence roaring chivalry” katana-wielder Katakura Kojuro in action.

Watch the video below. View two new screenshots at the gallery. The PlayStation 3-exclusive action game is due out in Japan early next year.

    Wow, actually looks good.

  • Zancrow

    Thank god, he’s playable!
    And that team attack! Awesome!

  • Learii

    I hope Capcom bring this game oversea

  • almostautumn

    I keep meaning to pick up the one they localized for PS3, but keep neglecting it for some reason or another.

    Is there much that separates this game from DW/SW? I was never really into these hack/slash games, although I did enjoy Senran Kagura: Shinovi because the art-direction and overall manner of play were unique/more consolidated than in DW.

    • Frankiedf

      Whereas DW has dozens of characters who are play very similarly to each other, SB has less that play quite differently from each other.

      The character variety is amazing. Really good combat, there’s a real combo system, cancelling. I love it.

    • Kobracon

      I always say its basically Samurai Warriors on crack. Its got less people on screen but the characters are over the top in gameplay, design and even personality. Which is why I end up liking this way more than SW. The combat feels a bit more like a fighting game with cancels and whatnot. Basara 3 is definitely worth a try. Should be cheap now too.

  • MrKappa

    Capcom left us hanging with the update and the HD collection but hopefully they aren’t so heartless to not let us have this.
    Then again with the way things have been going recently if we get this at all it will be subbed and digital only.

    • Gojira Twit

      I will take subbed and digital over nothing at all ever forever.

  • bloodiOS

    It would have been better if this is also a cross-gen title like Sengoku Musou 4.

  • fyi1191

    I hope team attacks aren’t the only new stuff they put in.
    All Kojuro’s moves are the same as always.

    • TetsuyaHikari

      Wat? No, lol. I can think of two moves off the top of my head that have changed in his movelist from what I saw in the video.

  • KIngpigeon96

    Hopefully more is added to the combat. It’s good but I’d like to see more special attacks and new mechanics. Looks like the stages are going to be the way they were in SB3 :(

    • Kobracon

      We got crazy soldier pyramids now :D

  • Eclipse

    Nice, I’m so glad to finally hear that Kojuro’s playable!

    • Kobracon

      Hes been playable since Basara 2 Heroes and Basara 3 Utage

      • Eclipse

        Yep, I know. However, he wasn’t playable in Basara 2 & 3, so I was scared that they’d continue the pattern of having him unplayable in SB4, seeing as how he only appeared in the expansions.

        • Kobracon

          Ah right. Yeah this is rare in this case. Man I wonder if Azai Nagamasa and (unpossessed) Oichi will make a return in an expansion…

          • Eclipse

            Ah, I see you’re a fan of tragedy! XD

            Azai & Oichi are really fun to play as, so I also hope to see them make a return. It’d be awesome if they were playable in this.

            • Kobracon

              Hell no I’m not a fan of tragedy. What happens to them (both in history and the history of the game) has always made me sad.

              It doesn’t help that I found both of them the most fun to play. And geez what Oichi goes through in Basara 3 is just painful. Poor girl cannot catch a break….

              • Eclipse

                Yeah, I’ve always thought that it was quite brutal what those two went through…

                Oichi’s routes always get me so emotional >_<

          • TetsuyaHikari

            Yeah, Nagamasa really needs to come back with his Sentai team, lol.

            • Kobracon

              GOHOI YARIIIIIII!

  • PrinceHeir

    come on Capcom this is your time to redeem yourself for the franchise :P

    • Rafael Martines

      Capcom USA should do this…

      Localize Sengoku Basara HD Collection and Sengoku Basara 3 All-In-One Pack or on PSN with the damn japanese audio Capcom USA just destroyed one of the most awesome things in this game the Date Masamune and Uesugi Kenshin voice actors :(

  • Kobracon

    Dat team Basara attack…..


    Wait….this can only mean one thing….HOLY SHIT HIDEYOSHI IS BACK! YEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!! Time to start tossing fools and atomic pile driving all them bosses!

  • TetsuyaHikari

    Really liking Kojuro’s new attacks. I’m also glad they went back to his SB3 BGM. I didn’t particularly care for the Utage version, honestly. I hope they release some gameplay of Hanbei soon though!
