CAPCOM announced at the Sengoku Basara 4 Basara Matsuri 2014 ~Shinshun no Utage~ (Sengoku Basara 4 Basara Festival 2014 ~Party of the New Year~) in January that a new television anime project is in the works. A first television anime adapting the games aired in Japan in 2009, with a sequel airing in 2010. A feature film soon followed. Funimation has released both Sengoku Basara television series in North America, as well as the film.
The granchise also inspired manga adaptations, live-action television, stage plays, and even a musical by the all-female troupe Takarazuka Revue.
Nakai will take part in the "NTV Anime Unveiling" stage event at AnimeJapan on Saturday.
