Sengoku Basara: Chronicle Heroes Set For PSP In Japan
The first didn't go over well with critics but still sold relatively well and now, a portable follow-up has been confirmed.
Capcom's Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes for the PlayStation 3 and Wii didn't drag down high scores, but it still managed to gain a big enough following to warrant a sequel. The publisher recently reported that Samurai Heroes had "met or exceeded" its sales expectations of 500,000 units (likely thanks to a good showing in Japan), so they figure a sequel would be worthwhile. But they're downsizing the concept: according to an announcement at Capcom's official blog, Sengoku Basara: Chronicle Heroes will release for the PSP in Japan this summer. They provide no information concerning a Western launch and although we're hoping to see it in the US, Capcom may have determined that such a game should stick to Japan. If you're not familiar with this style of gameplay, it's best to describe it as similar to Dynasty Warriors, with tons of enemies and standard hack 'n slash action.
We'll let you know if Capcom makes a Chronicle Heroes confirmation for the Western audiences.
