The site also has first details on the game's ending theme. Titled "Gyakkou," the song will be performed by Chiaki Ishikawa and is meant to express sadness and distress that await at the end of the battle that is fought by the Sengoku heroes.

Sengoku Basara puts players in the role of a Sengoku era general. The series started off as a 2006 PlayStation 2 action title. This was followed by a Wii and PS2 sequel, an arcade and PS2 fighting game, and, most recently, a PSP team battle action title. Overseas, the series has seen release under the name "Devil Kings."

Outside of games, Sengoku Basara has expanded to anime and even the stage. In financial reports, Capcom frequently cites the success the franchise has had in drawing in female fans.
