Sengoku Basara 4 Sumeragi Anniversary Edition Announced on PS4
Capcom is releasing an anniversary edition of Sengoku Basara 4 Sumeragi with all DLC and an exclusive artbook.
Capcom announced it’ll launch Sengoku Basara 4 Sumeragi Anniversary Edition on PlayStation 4 on July 21 in Japan. The game will celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Sengoku Basara franchise. The series’ first game launched on July 21, 2005 on PS2.
Sengoku Basara 4 Sumeragi Anniversary Edition is a new release of Sengoku Basara 4 Sumeragi, first released on July 2015 that includes all 66 DLCs for the game such as special costumes and BGMs, along with a special booklet, the Sengoku Eiyuu 15th Anniversary Book:
The booklet includes many artwork from the series, sampled above. It most notably includes an interview from the main seiyuu of the series: Soichiro Hoshi who voices Sanada Yukimura, and Kazuya Nakai, who voices Date Masamune. An interview with Takanori Nishikawa / T.M Revolution, who handled many Sengoku Basara theme songs, is also included.
A digital version of the game will also launch, alongside a DLC pack for those who already own the base game. Last but not least, a limited physical version will also be sold.
Sengoku Basara has a sizable and devoted fanbase in Japan in particular. The series is also an icon of the Boys Love genre for many Japanese women and BL fans in general, with all the romantic overtones between Sanada Yukimura and Date Masamune. The series also has numerous incredibly popular stage plays and anime adaptations, which are all pretty cool and fun with the over-the-topness.
While console wise the Sengoku Basara series didn’t get a new game in years, there’s a mobile gacha game that’s pretty active titled Sengoku Basara Battle Party. It launched on June 24, 2019, and seems to be dong well so far. Else it would have closed down already seeing how ruthless the gacha game business is.
It’ll be great if the Sengoku Basara series came back with a brand new proper console entry someday.
