Capcom has formally announced Sengoku Basara 3 Utage (not "En," as we mistakenly wrote a couple of days back). The announcement came with a logo and a mysterious screenshot.
Famitsu got the first word on the Wii and PS3 followup earlier in the week. As revealed then, Utage will feature new generals and gameplay systems, and support for two player cooperative play in almost all modes. While the magazine confirmed eight generals, it did not share details on the new gameplay systems.
The magazine had an interview with producer Hideyuki Kobayashi and director Shin Yamamoto. Kobayashi revealed that due to the success of Sengoku Basara 3, they wanted to make a new entry in the series and were initially considering doing "Eiyuu Gaiden" similar to Sengoku Basara 2. However, the Gaiden name brings with it some hurdles, Kobayashi said, so they changed the naming. The Utage name, which literally means "feast" or "party," ties in with the game as the stories are said to be in large part bright and cheerful this time.
Development on Sengoku Basara 3 Utage is currently 80% complete. A release is planned for Fall.
Capcom also opened an official site for the game. Go there for cast artwork.
