Sengoku Basara: Chronicle Heroes being told on PSP in Japan
Capcom's historic beat-'em-up franchise confirmed for PSP release in island nation next summer; Western outing TBA.
Capcom didn't exactly win over Western critics with Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes, a Dynasty Warriors-style beat-'em-up that received a drubbing upon its release for the PlayStation 3 and Wii in October. Still, the game did attain a measure of commercial success, with Capcom saying as part of its April-September earnings report that the game met or exceeded its sales expectations of 500,000 units.
As such, it comes as no surprise that the franchise will continue beyond Samurai Heroes. Today, Capcom updated its official blog to reveal that Sengoku Basara: Chronicle Heroes will arrive for the PSP in Japan this summer. Unfortunately for Western audiences, Capcom has not yet confirmed a release outside of Japan.
Capcom did not detail what gamers can expect from Chronicle Heroes. However, it will likely stick close Samurai Heroes' formula. In that game, players hacked their way through the events and people of feudal Japan, much like Koei's long-standing Samurai Warriors franchise. The game featured large-scale battles of "hundreds of opponents," and players were able to assume control of more than 10 legendary samurai for use on the field of war.
