Capcom’s New 2D Fighter Revealed: Sengoku Basara X
After a great deal of speculation of what Capcom’s new 2D fighter would be, Famitsu magazine has published new new information (in Japanese) and screenshots of the new game. Unfortunately for those waiting for Street Fighter 4, the game will indeed be a fresh franchise for the 2D fighter genre.
The game will be based off the Sengoku Basara franchise, known in the USA as Devil Kings. The game already has a couple 3D hack-n-slash action titles on the PS2, but Capcom apparently thought the series would do well in this old-school genre as opposed to the crowded action/adventure arena.
The Famitsu scans, original posted on 2chan, aren’t the highest quality, so I apologize for the low quality (I will post higher-quality versions when available)
Ten characters have been revealed so farm and mention of the PS2 and Wii are included in the scan. Other than that, not much else is known about the game at this time. I’ll be posting updates as I encounter them in the comments below and/or this forum thread.
