Sengoku BASARA (戦国BASARA) is a series of video games developed and published by Capcom, and a bigger media franchise based on it, including four anime shows, an anime movie, a magazine series, a trading card game, and numerous stage plays, manga, and drama CDs. Its story is loosely based on real events of the titular Sengoku period in the history of feudal Japan. Sengoku BASARA is considered to be very popular in Japan with the video games getting good reviews and sales, winning numerous awards, becoming a cultural phenomenon, and gaining a huge and strong fanbase.
While Sengoku BASARA remains very popular in Japan, it has gained some popularity in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan. Even though the franchise isn't really known well outside of Japan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan, it maintains a strong fanbase even outside of those countries (mainly the US, UK, Germany, Russia, and Italy). Every console and handheld Sengoku BASARA game in Japan has gotten a B rating (Ages 12 and up) except for Sengoku BASARA 3 Utage which got a C rating (Ages 15 and up) from CERO. The franchise started with the first Sengoku BASARA video game releasing in Japan on July 21, 2005 for the PlayStation 2.
The franchise's producer is Hiroyuki Kobayashi (who has been the producer for every console and handheld game in the series except for Sengoku BASARA Sanada Yukimura-Den, and is the creator of the franchise) and its director is Makoto Yamamoto (who has been the director for every console and handheld game in the series except for Sengoku BASARA Sanada Yukimura-Den). Sengoku BASARA serves as one of Capcom's flagship series in Japan. As of December 31, 2019, the game series has sold 4 million units worldwide.
Sengoku BASARA 2
Sengoku BASARA 2 is a sequel to the original Sengoku BASARA, released in Japan for the PS2 on July 27, 2006. The game was ported to the Wii in 2007. An expansion titled, Sengoku BASARA 2 Heroes, was released in 2007. The game marks the series' first anniversary and is also considered to have started the "Sengoku Boom" throughout Japan, which is still happening even today. The Sengoku Boom is basically a time period that sparked a renewed interest in the history of Japan (mostly the Sengoku period of feudal Japan, hence the name) where people in Japan go to museums, castles, and battlefields to learn about their favorite Sengoku BASARA character(s) real life history, buy merchandise related to the game series and the Sengoku period, and buy video games involving the Sengoku period (mostly Sengoku BASARA).
Sengoku BASARA 2 Heroes
Sengoku BASARA 2 Heroes is an expansion to Sengoku BASARA 2, and is the first expansion in the series. The game was released in Japan for the PS2 on November 29, 2007, and ported to the Wii later the same year. Characters that were unplayable in the previous game, Sengoku BASARA 2, are playable in Sengoku BASARA 2 Heroes. The game sparked a major boom in tourism to the hometown of Katakura Kojūrō, Shiroishi City.
