The latest project from Resident Evil and Devil May Cry producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes, was released to stores in North America today for Nintendo Wii. The game follows players as they marshal through feudal Japan, ending at the dramatic battle of Sekigahara. In the game, the player takes control of 16 unique and vibrant samurai heroes in huge battles against hundreds of opponents that grow ever more challenging. On their journey to the final battle, players will learn how to unleash spectacular Basara Arts and utilize Hero Time to wipe out as many enemies as possible.



Each of Sengoku Basara’s: Samurai Heroes playable characters are based on real-life legendary samurai warriors with their own unique weapons and fighting styles. Throughout each battle, players work to capture camps scattered around the battlefield, to gain additional resources and weaken the final boss. Victory in battle not only delivers new territories but the natural resources of that region, which can be used to create various accessories that make the heroes and their weapons more powerful. Along the way, the player can collect Basara, which can be used to perform OTT moves that will devastate hundreds of opponents at a time.*Never having to fight alone, each samurai is accompanied by an A.I. general or can play split-screen co-op with another player to lead their armies to victory.

Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes is available now in stores in North America for an RRP of $39.99.
