I should know better than to post that I don't expect much news for a while when it comes to this series...
The latest Butai Sengoku Basara 4 Sumeragi stage play information
This winter's new stage play was the focus of this morning's updates and the details are all on the official homepage. Firstly, Nakayama Yuuki and Yamaguchi Tomoya, both of SOLIDEMO, will be joining the cast as members of Motochika's crew! It's a fun idea to bring two pop singers into the play as guest stars, and I hope it means that there will be some comical scenes (and maybe even songs?) for Aniki this time around. The two guest stars will come back on stage for a chat with the audience after the show on 29th January 2016.
The update also introduced preview pictures of Masamune (Shiono Akihisa), Yukimura (Matsumura Ryuunosuke) and Motochika (Shiramata Atsushi) in costume! You can see them all over at 4 Gamer if that's easier than the Twitter links.
There will be two short Sengoku Basara presentations at Jump Festa
We finally have the details for the Sengoku Basara stage presentations at this month's Jump Festa event courtesy of the Capcom website. They're scheduled for Saturday 19th December 2015 from 14:30 to 15:00, and Sunday 20th December 2015 from 10:40 to 11:10. That's not much time. They're specifically being described as news presentations, and the speakers will be KobaP and Ashigaru-kun (the little blue puppet mascot character who appears at some live events).
A closer look at the new Sengoku Basarai items on the Capcom Bar menu
Speaking of Ashigaru-kun, he's been busy featuring in the first of a series of reports about the new dishes on offer at the Capcom Bar in Shinjuku. The initial report covers the deluxe Sengoku Basara Battle Set and attempts to explain the connections between each of the characters and the types of food on offer. It's a little silly. There will be another report posted next week to show off more of the new menu items.

More upcoming Sengoku Basara manga cover art appears
We now have a proper preview of the Wan-Nyan Sengoku Basara manga cover artwork courtesy of e-Capcom. It's looking nice and colourful!
The cover artwork for the third volume of Mame Sengoku Basara 4 is also now available. It's sad to think that this will be the final book in the series.
