News round-up: Details of upcoming novels and soundtracks revealed

The reason for the strange delay in announcing the track lists for the two new Sengoku Basara compilation CDs, which come out next week on the 24th April 2013, has finally been made apparent: the previously-teased 'unreleased songs' are going to include a few Sengoku Basara 4 tracks!

There isn't much point in me translating all of the track names as they probably have English-language fan titles anyway which I don't know. The Tougun BEST CD will contain two unreleased tracks, one from Sengoku Basara 2 called 'Souryuujin' ('Twin Dragon Formation', obviously a Masamune/Kojuurou theme) and a Sengoku Basara 4 song, 'Tentei' ('Ruler of the Heavens', a fairly loaded title steeped in connotations). Meanwhile, Seigun BEST contains three new songs including 'Sengoku BASARA ver. 0' from the first game and a Sengoku Basara 3 track I'm unfamiliar with, 'Shukuen' ('Fate'). The Sengoku Basara 4 track is 'Sousei' ('The Creation of the World').

The CD titles are Sengoku Basara Tougun BEST (Sengoku Basara Eastern Army BEST) (CPCA 10291) and Sengoku Basara Seigun BEST (Sengoku Basara Western Army BEST) (CPCA 10292). They'll be priced at ¥2,100 each and the theme is that each contains a selection of songs appropriate to the army they're named for.

The other piece of news (which actually appeared late last week but didn't warrant a news post on its own) is that the next two novels for Sengoku Basara on the Kodansha BOX line will feature the subordinates instead of the main characters. Kojuurou and Sasuke will be joining the already-announced Setouchi pair as the stars of their own books. The full series of books will be as follows:

1. Chousokabe Motochika
2. Mouri Motonari
3. Sarutobi Sasuke
4. Katakura Kojuurou

Along with the main announcement it was revealed that the first book in the series has slipped back from its original 19th April release date to 3rd June 2013. They're really announcing these things at the last minute lately - I'm still waiting for a good way to buy the magazine which comes out in under a fortnight!
