Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes: Official Complete Works

201111_SengokuBasara_SamuraiHeroes_OCWAll of us at UDON were thrilled in September when we were finally able to release Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes: Official Complete Works, the stunning official art collection of the popular game (released in North America for the PlayStation 3 and Wii video game systems). All of Sengoku Basara fandom had been waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently!) for UDON’s English edition to make its debut, but I think all involved will agree-it was worth the wait!

Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes: Official Complete Works collects the unique and lovely artwork of the third game in this landmark Capcom series. Included in this collection are character designs, rough sketches, rendered images, promotional images, storyboard cinematics, and even more fantastic artwork.

But there’s some truly amazing stuff in this volume for hardcore Sengoku Basara otaku…! For serious voice actor/seiyuu fans, Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes: Official Complete Works contains short profiles of and interviews with the cast of the Japanese game and anime series, a first for any UDON art book localization! It also includes profiles/interviews with the artists responsible for the opening and closing theme songs, T.M. Revolution/Takanori Nishikawa (artist of “Naked Arms”) and Chiaki Ishikawa (artist of Japanese ending theme “Backlight”). Finally, the volume also features an extensive interview with the creators of Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes, Producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi and Director Makoto Yamamoto.

We’re so happy with the amazing response to the Sengoku Basara manga and artbooks, and we’d love to do more with the Sengoku Basara series in the future. So fans, tell your friends about these titles and we’ll do our best to keep bringing you all the Basara we can!
