Sengoku Basara Producer Teases More Plans Coming Soon
Sengoku Basara fans should keep the excitement going and the guns ready as Producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi teases more 15th anniversary plans.
Famitsu recently published an interview for the 15th anniversary of Capcom’s Sengoku Basara franchise, with Producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi, and seiyuu Masakazu Morita, who voices Maeda Keiji.
At the end of the interview, Producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi once again teased that various plans are coming so we should keep getting hyped:
Hiroyuki Kobayashi: “I want to challenge myself with new projects in the future. We’re currently preparing multiple plans to celebrate the 15th anniversary, so look forward to it.”
Masakazu Morita also added as a fan he’d definitely like to see a PS5 Sengoku Basara game. Needless to say, Morita is a seiyuu, not a developer at Capcom, and he looked at Kobayashi while saying this, as a fan. His words doesn’t mean a Sengoku Basara PS5 game will get announced soon. However it’s definitely a possibility seeing Capcom is on a roll lately.
No new game was announced during the Sengoku Basara 15th anniversary stream we covered, though multiple other smaller projects were revealed. The stream in itself was really fun too, and it’s not every day you get to see Takanori Nishikawa, Kazuya Nakai and Souichiro Hoshi having fun together.

Note that Famitsu published this interview online on August 6, and the interview was first included in the Famitsu magazine issue released on July 22, after the above-mentioned stream. Meaning what Producer Kobayashi is teasing isn’t any of the 15th anniversary projects which were already revealed on that stream.
For now, you could always import the brand new anniversary edition of Sengoku Basara 4 Sumeragi on PS4.
Sengoku Basara is incredibly popular in Japan as on of the biggest “media mix” franchises. Its stage plays in particular are incredibly popular.
In related news, Capcom recently revealed its new plans for Street Fighter 5 and how it’ll most notably add Akira from Justice Gakuen (Rival Schools). The Japanese company is also working on a brand new IP called Pragmata.
