Sengoku Musou game series producer Hisashi Koinuma is supervising the anime.
The games' voice cast is returning with Takeshi Kusao as Yukimura Sanada, Daisuke Ono as Nobuyuki Sanada, Masaya Takatsuka as Kanetsugu Naoe, Eiji Takemoto as Mitsunari Ishida, Yuko Nagashima as Kunoichi, Makiko Ohmoto as Inahime (Ina), Akio Ohtsuka as Tadakatsu Honda, and Jouji Nakata as Ieyasu Tokugawa.
