- Kenshin is being jokingly billed as 'The Basarasienne known as the God of War'. It's a pun on the Takarasienne, the glamourous actresses from the Takarazuka Revue.
- Kasuga is billed as 'The 'ayatorist' of fantasies who devotes all she has to Kenshin'. (Ayatori is a game you play with string, equivalent to cat's cradle.)
- Both of the returning characters will have drama routes as well as the usual stories.
- Kenshin's main story: Even in possession of so much power, Uesugi Kenshin doesn't seek to seize the country for his own sake but declares himself part of the Ashikaga faction. Over the course of his many interactions with Ashikaga Yoshiteru, Kenshin and his kunoichi follower Kasuga travel all over the land of Hinomoto together, waging war after war.
- Kenshin's drama story: Although Kenshin was working faithfully for the Ashikaga faction, during a conversation with everyone in the Maeda army - headed by Maeda Keiji - he gradually begins to think about the matter of seizing the nation, and a showdown with his rival Takeda Shingen...
- Kasuga's main story: Kasuga. The kunoichi who devotes herself to serving the Uesugi Kenshin she adores. Although she's repeatedly immersed in battle day after day, Kasuga reflects upon the happiness of being with Kenshin. She continues to travel around the land of Hinomoto even as she drifts off into a dreamlike state of mind.
- Kasuga's drama story: Marching along the path towards seizing the whole country together with Kenshin, Kasuga is tormented by countless nightmares. In the midst of this, the battlefield they finally managed to reach has an unsettling atmosphere...
- The site update also remarks on how uncannily 'Poem Amago' seems to resemble Shikanosuke's master Amago Haruhisa.
- From the wording, it sounds as though there might be a few other ways that Battle Roulette can transform the battlefield on top of those that have already been announced. I guess we'll find out soon.
- Katsuie's medal costume is confirmed to be helmetless in the description.
- Keiji's striped medal costume is supposed to evoke an image of clear blue skies and white clouds, fitting for a festival-loving guy. That's what it says even if most people are just thinking of a Lawson outfit (like the one Masamune wore last year).
The latest updates for those buying Sengoku Basara 4 Sumeragi
Fans who are planning on picking up the Asian version of the game might want to shop around, as it seems that there are some stores listing the 'early reservation' weapon DLC for PS3 (Play-Asia only lists it for the PS4 edition). In addition, it seems a few places are offering a bonus in the form of one of four Sengoku Basara 10th Anniversary smartphone cases.
I'm afraid that I don't know much Chinese so I can't advise on which stores are offering the game to customers overseas and which are trustworthy, but it's probably worth investigating further if you want those weapons and missed out on the Japanese preorder period.
Speaking of the 'early reservation' DLC, the deadline for registering a Sumeragi ID to qualify for the weapons is this Sunday. Please don't forget to register yours on the website if you preordered the Japanese edition in time!
That's all for now. I'm hoping for a surprise video to appear on the official website tomorrow but that's probably impossible; the next one will probably arrive when I least expect it.
