Capcom has released the first screenshots and information for its newly announced Sengoku Basara: Sanada Yukimura-Den for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
Sengoku Basara: Sanada Yukimura-Den is a lengthy drama that depicts the life of Sanada Yukimura. Military leaders are expressed in their original historical view, and different from previous entries in the series, the story develops closer to historical fact. Players will follow Sanada’s growth to adulthood until the summer campaign of the siege of Osaka.
Here’s the synopsis provided on the teaser website:
During the bloody era of never-ending battles between rival warlords defending their territory…
The future was uncertain, but one man blazed through that era as if his soul were on fire—the ruler of the heavens, the matchless spear Sanada Genjirou Yukimura.
Our story depicts the second son of a rural samurai who had barely any land in Shinshu Ueda, how he fought, how he lived, and how his seething spirit made him into a legendary military commander of whom tales are still told today.
It is the grand biography of one man, Sanada Yukimura.
Sengoku Basara: Sanada Yukimura-Den is due out for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan in summer 2016.
