CAPCOM began streaming a new "introduction manual" video on Wednesday for its Sengoku Basara 4 PlayStation 3 game. The "growth edition" video highlights the game's leveling-up system. The video also previews the "hakama & wooden sword" costume for Date Masamune that will be available via a download code for those who purchase the first limited edition of the game.
The game will also include various other DLC costumes, such as Devil May Cry Vergil costume for Ishida Mitsunari, a twin sword kung-fu costume for Shima Sakon, a Nagamasa Azai costume for Shibata Katsuie, a "Blue Dragon" costume for Sanada Yukimura, a "Gakuen Basara" costume for Tokugawa Ieyasu, and a wedding costume for Ii Naotora.
The game will ship on January 23 for 6,990 yen (about US$71) including tax. There will also be a limited-edition Sengoku Basara 4 Hyakka Ryōran Tamatebako set with the game, book, storyboard collection, interchangeable disc jacket, and custom theme for 8,790 yen (US$89). T.M. Revolution will perform the game's opening theme and girl band SCANDAL will perform the ending theme.
CAPCOM's Sengoku Basara games have sold 3.2 million copies since 2005. They inspired the Sengoku Basara - Samurai Kings, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings 2, and Sengoku Basara - Samurai Kings: The Movie anime adaptations. A live-action series starring GACKT premiered last year, and spawned two compilation films in December. The games also inspired a stage musical adaptation from the famous all-female Takarazuka Revue Company that ran from June 15 to July 1.
