    It’s like Dynasty/Samurai Warriors…but more over-the-top. And the (historical) characters go by a different alias than that of the (historical) character they represent. Like Sanda Yukimura is “Scorpio” and Date Masamune is “Azure Dragon”

    the original Sengoku Basara was called ‘Devil Kings’ in the west.

    poor game btw, Dynasty Warriors was way better.

    I never understood the insane popularity of those Warriors (and their clones) games in Japan, i guess those guys really enjoy one button gameplay.

    the first couple of KOEI titles were fun to play, and the battles looked somewhat impressive for early 2000s with all the craploads of soldiers, juggernauts, elephants and stuff, but I stopped caring after DW5 myself.
