Sengoku BASARA, Capcom’s samurai slashing franchise, has had some success in Japan (less in America). Sony’s PSP has had some success in Japan (less in America). This combination of factors leads to the perfect storm of Sengoku BASARA: Chronicle Heroes being announced for the PSP in Japan, with no word yet of an American release. Capcom’s official blog Capcom-Unity reports on Destructoid’s report.
Sengoku BASARA: Samurai Kings, the cartoon adaptation of the series, has recently been adapted by FUNimation. Samurai Heroes was released on the Wii and PlayStation 3 last year. Dynasty Warriors is a similar franchise, letting players demolish armies. I definitely prefer their Dynasty Warriors: Gundam titles, eschewing their ancient war storylines for future war storylines with giant robots.
