Sengoku Basara X Character Selection Screen.


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. 

Clashing colors... what are you pirates up to?

There are several different types of Assist Attacks that the "engun" character can perform. These include their 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 Japan-only PlayStation 2 version features two additional characters over the arcade version.


Oda Nobunaga is badass in this series.

Final Words:

As a fan of the Samurai Shodown series (and many other weapon-based fighting games), I kind of wanted to try out this Arc System Works-developed 2D fighter... I haven't gotten around to it due to not having an Japan import-compatible PS2. I probably would've bought the game day one if it got a localized western release, but sadly, that didn't happen.

Overall, Sengoku Basara X Cross has a Guilty Gear X vibe in terms of visuals... some of the backgrounds and sprites are impressive, yet pretty "clashy" at the same time. I heard the gameplay is broken, but if I ever get around to playing this game, I'll give it a fair shake.
