Top right corner of the first image - Tri-force. Expect Nintendo lawyers are parachuting into Tecmo's offices as we speak.

Still doesnt beat Sengoku Basara series interms of colors, polish and combat feedback. Not saying its bad its pretty good on its own.
Though its way better than that piece of shit Dynasty Warriors with its weightless movements, shitty rock music and boring special.

Tbh i might get this one, this is the closest thing to Basara series and closest thing i ever get to owning such a game for ps4.

I'd rather have BASARA4 released outside of Japan.

So do i man, i rather have a new next-gen Basara or atleast remake Basara 3 Utage on ps4 for EU/NA. But considering its Capcom and how dumb that company has been turned out as of late its not going to happen at all.

I would prefer something like Kengo. More real approach to sword fighting with some nice story. :-)

Meh, these type of games are suppose to be as exagerating as possible, not as realistic and boring as possible lol.

Character creation is a feature in the game.

I cant wait to make a badass serious looking character and then use awesome weapons and official movesets like these!

Anyways, closest thing to Basara for PS4, so i will probably buy this in October along with Dragon Age 3.
