Sengoku Basara For Governor!

Capcom historical action title being tapped to turn out the vote in Miyagi.


With its large female fanbase, the Sengoku Basara series has already proven that it can appeal to tough crowds. Now it's going for an even tougher audience: disinterested voters.

Capcom announced today that the game's Masamune Date character will be used as the image character for Miyagi Prefecture's upcoming governor election. The character will appear on posters and in television commercials.

This tie-in is being held as a means of increasing voter turnout come the big day. Date is said to be one of Sengoku Basara's more popular characters.

The election will be held on the 25th of this month. Let's see how many wise guys write in Date for Governor.
