Basara X (cross) is a 2D fighting game developed collaboratively
by Arc System Works & Capcom; based off of the series of the same name. Fans of the Basara
series will find a ton of fan service, from the dialogue & character
mannerisms to backgrounds & music. The
game looks and plays very similar to the likes of Guilty Gear X and Hokuto
colors of that guy's outfit
possibly be more tacky?
Sengoku Basara X features 10 playable characters
inspired by Japan's feudal era and a "Reinforcement" or assist system.
Each fighter has a special "engun"
character that can be called in for an assist technique during gameplay. Each
assist character can perform 3 different types of assist moves, each depending
on the main fighter's current situation. There's a default assist attack, a
counter assist attack (occurring when the main player receives damage), and a
special attack (occurring while the main character is doing a special move). The Japanese-only PS2 version features two additional characters over
the arcade version.
Uhhh, dude... I think it
might be a good time to duck.
Yet another PS2 import fighting game that I've yet to get
my hands on. As a fan of the Samurai Shodown
series (and a fan of samurai
in general), I'd definitely like to get a chance to review this game eventually.
I don't know much about the Sengoku Basara series but I've seen some of the
anime... not too bad.
