Sengoku Basara Anime Series in the Works
Capcom’s Sengoku Basara (Devil Kings in the US) series of crowd brawling games is considered as an over-the-top version of Tecmo Koei’s Dynasty/Samurai Warriors series, both in terms of character design and gameplay. Anybody familiar with Tecmo Koei’s franchise know that being considered as its OTT version is impressive, considering that their games have characters based on historical figures throwing fire, lightning, and laying waste to hundreds and hundreds of people without even breaking a sweat.
Well, one of the frequent comments about Sengoku Basara is that it really works well in anime form (find a copy of the movie if you’re a fan), and it seems like Capcom is listening as the recent Sengoku Basara 4: Basara Matsuri 2014 ~Shinshun No Utage~ event in Tokyo has series producer Kobayashi ‘KobaP’ Hiroyuki announcing that a TV anime is in the works. However, no further details were given so I guess this is more of a wait and see.
