Capcom's latest teaser site
, which was last showing the number 1600, was generally believed (and hoped
) to be leading up to the announcement of a new Onimusha
game. However, the game being teased is actually a new entry in Capcom's other
action series starring fictionalized versions of real feudal Japanese warlords: Sengoku Basara
, (barely) better known here as Devil Kings
-- a series which features Onimusha
's bad guy Oda Nobunaga as the protagonist and title character.
No platforms or really any
other information were revealed about Sengoku Basara 3
, other than the logo, two character silhouettes, and a 2010 date. Previous Sengoku Basara
games have been released on PS2, PSP
, and Wii
(along with an arcade-based 2D fighting spinoff).
The series isn't that well-known in North America, but in Japan, its popularity (and the sudden popularity of actual Japanese history
) is boosted by the tie-in anime series
