Capcom definitely has their work cut out for them with regards to their upcoming hack-n-slash sequel Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes. The previous game wasn’t released in the United States, but the first game in the series hit the PlayStation 2, however it underwent significant changes in an attempt to appeal to Western sensibilities. Producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi recently told X-Play that Capcom isn’t making this same mistake again.
“So originally, we figured the Sengoku history was a little hard to understand for Western users, because they have no connection with it whatsoever. So we made it more like Lord of the Rings…This time, Basara is extremely popular in Japan, it’s a well received game in Japan; why not give it to the rest of the world?”
