The second batch of guests are announced for March's big live event
There will be two musical guests at the event: Ishikawa Chiaki (Saturday only) and the pop group SOLIDEMO (both days). Ishikawa is a regular who has contributed a substantial number of songs to the series already, but if you haven't been keeping up with recent news you might not be familiar with SOLIDEMO's collaboration on the series' tenth anniversary theme song Toki Wo Koete. It's an interesting choice to feature a group like this at a Sengoku Basara event.
There are also a few new seiyuu guests to add to the already-generous roster. Nakamura Yuuichi (Shima Sakon) and Miki Shinichirou (Gotou Matabee) will be appearing on Saturday while veteran actor Wakamoto Norio (Oda Nobunaga) will be in the Sunday show.
There's been no mention of Nishikawa Takanori in the guest list so far, but I'd be very surprised if he isn't going to be included, especially with only one musical guest on Sunday. T.M.Revolution performances are one of the highlights of a good Basara Matsuri! He's famous enough to be able to have his own dedicated announcement later on and the guest lists advise that more performers will be added later on. We should see a third round of guests revealed in due course.

Release information for the Sengoku Basara vs Devil May Cry stage play DVD
Those of us anxiously waiting to place our preorders for the Butai Sengoku Basara vs Devil May Cry stage play DVD will soon be able to relax now that Capcom have announced the release is definitely going ahead. The DVD version will cost ¥7,000 and go on sale on 11th November 2015, with preorders opening tomorrow in conjunction with the launch of the play's official online shop.
The set will include two DVDs. The first contains the show itself and lists a runtime of 183 minutes, while the second is for 118 minutes of bonus material, including footage from the curtain call of the grand finale, a summary of the 'after talk' sessions and some cast interviews. The first press version of the DVD will come with a special booklet as its bonus.
Edit 10/10/2015: The shop listing is now live and confusingly it gives a runtime of 167 minutes for the main feature with 119 minutes of bonus material. Even though there were subtitles for the live performances the disc is listed as being in Japanese only - I left a disappointed comment when I placed my order.
