News roundup: Sengoku Basara 4 now has a release date!

I was rather surprised to wake up to a special edition of the Sengoku Basara newsletter this morning which finally revealed the game's release details ahead of this week's Tokyo Game Show 2013. Sengoku Basara 4 is scheduled for release on 23rd January 2014 priced at ¥6,990 and with CERO rating B (ages 12+).

T.M. Revolution will be performing the opening theme song, and the ending will be provided by the girl band SCANDAL. A video at TGS will show off the new music, and the official website has two brand new movies for fans to enjoy already. The first demonstrates the battle mechanics (and reveals Sakon's Basara-e is some dice and hanafuda cards with his two-character title being 'chouhan', a Japanese dice game):


The second is 'part one' of an introduction to the game's characters, demonstrating their individual moves and gimmicks:


I have to wait until tonight to watch the videos properly, but they seem pretty interesting! And the Shimazu flag in the background at one point is more obvious than ever...

  1. Wow! So we can now switch between the 3 Super Skills as we want on the battlefield!? That's awesome!

I'm really sorry that I had to switch on authentication for comments. The blog had started to receive dozens of spam comments each week. I hope that this new setting will help!
