News roundup: A few more updates and the Nico Nico event schedule

I posted the last news roundup before bed and as soon as I woke up there was a little more news. The pace of updates is impressive lately!

The Famitsu website posts a gameplay article for Ashikaga Yoshiteru

Most of this is already confirmed anyway but there are a couple of screenshots I hadn't seen before. You can check the full article here.

Update: The same pictures are also available at 4Gamer now. Thanks to Balder for the link!

The cover art is revealed for the second volume of Mame Sengoku Basara 4

The official e-Capcom store has revealed that Mitsunari and Sakon will have the honour of adorning the cover of the second book in Sumeragi's cute manga adaptation when it goes on sale at the end of this month. It's a very busy, colourful cover once again! There are some small sample pages at the link as well for those who haven't been keeping up with Mame Sengoku Basara 4.


More details for the upcoming Nico Nico Choukaigi 2015 event

Capcom added another news post earlier today with more information about their offerings at the Nico Nico Choukaigi 2015 subculture event on the 25th and 26th April.

Attendees will be able to play the special event-exclusive demo version of the game called Sengoku Basara 4 Sumeragi 'Super-Special★Bomb Soldier Challenge Version', which has been described as a game mode where the nameless, invincible bomb soldier has to gather as many Tenka Medals as possible. A footnote adds that there will be demos available for the normal version of the game in some stores as early as May.

Fans who visit the booth to play the bomb soldier demo will receive a Sengoku Basara 4 Sumeragi folding fan.


The schedule for the Sengoku Basara 4 Sumeragi VS DMC4 SE streaming channel has also been confirmed; all timing quoted is based on Japan's time zone. Hosts KobaP and Gatchman will be present throughout the day.
