Sengoku Basara is Japanese for "Is That Guy Carrying An Anchor?"

Posted by Earnest "Nex" Cavalli on Fri, Sep 10, 2010 at 6:31 PM

Ok, so I lied.

Sengoku Basara is not actually Japanese for "Is that guy carrying an anchor?" but explaining that Capcom's decision to use the original Japanese name for their upcoming Dynasty-Warriors-meets-Devil-May-Cry action game almost guarantees that it's going to be ignored by the mass market it needs to turn any kind of profit, so I'm using this post to expose it to people who otherwise might completely miss it, would take up way too much headline space.

Hell, look at the stupid length of that last sentence.

Plus, seriously, that guy is carrying an anchor.

Hit the jump for more footage from the game starring a character who uses a more traditional, if ridiculously oversized weapon.

Notice the super cute monkey at 1:52?

He's the "mastermind behind the success of the western army?"

Mind: Blown.
