Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes Unleashes Its Kiai This October

Posted by Trevor Chan

From the producer of Devil May Cry 4

16th Century Japan is remembered mostly for its poetry and samurais; we think we all know which of those two we'd rather see in our video games (unless you wear a beret), and Capcom knows it too.

Capcom has announced that Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes for the Wii will be launching on October 15 in Europe and Australia. From Hiroyuki Kobayashi, the producer of Devil May Cry 4 comes an action game where it's not uncommon for players to be battling it out with up to dozens of samurai warriors. Utilise swords and spears to get you passed the action-packed stages that lead up to the main event.

Press release time:

Featuring unique playable characters, as well as supporting generals who will make it easier to command and lead armies, players will see the battle from the perspective of each military commander with the ultimate goal of re-writing history to rule all of 16th century Japan.

In the dynamic new “Hero’s Story” mode, the player’s decisions impact history with a redesigned story mode. Based on choices made by the player, new drama unfolds as friends become enemies, enemies become friends, and a new Sengoku story unfolds. Adding a new strategic element to the game, forces can fight for control/taking over of camps and ultimately entire battlefields.


  • Fight your way through many exciting battlefields until all heroes have gathered at the decisive battle of Sekigahara
  • Single-player game evolves based on players decisions and actions
  • Featuring unique playable samurai warrior characters
  • Upgradeable weapon types allow players to extend or add special abilities
  • Dramatic “Heroes’ Story” mode changes history based on players decisions as the story progresses

Which Samurai Game had Mystery of the Mursame as a bonus game in it?

Isn't this game coming to the PS3? I think I'd rather get that version instead of the Wii version, even though I don't have a PS3, nor do I intend on getting one any time soon.

Mickeymac: Yes, Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes will also be launching for the PS3.

Why would you rather buy something that you can't play, nor do you have any intention of being able to play?

"[...] Unleashes Its Kiai This October"
Very good headline _

If it will be half as good as the anime it will be a great game.

Because I've only seen it, and it looks great. I guess it does depend on how different it is from the PS3 version, though, and whether or not it utilizes the Classic controller.

Capcom never lets me down, pretty much all of the Wii games I own are by them or Nintendo.

Want! Playing Samurai Warriors 3 has made me want this game even more. It's similar, but seems better in all ways. And SW3 was a good game to begin with.
