CAPCOM confirmed in October that Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell, The Sky Crawlers) and director Itsuro Kawasaki (Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE The Movie: Princess of the Birdcage Kingdom, Yumedamaya Kidan) are adapting its game into a television anime series. Kazuya Nakai, Sōichiro Hoshi, and Norio Wakamoto will reprise their game roles as the Warring States Period figures Date Masamune, Sanada Yukimura, and Oda Nobunaga, respectively. The series will premiere in Japan on April 1.
Kazuki Higashimoto began adapting the original game into the Sengoku Basara Battle Heroes manga in the May issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine on March 21. The manga will last for three installments.
