Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) is pleased to announce that new versions of “Sengoku BASARA” will be released. One is “Sengoku BASARA Card Heroes”, a social game for Mobage. The other title is “Browser Sengoku BASARA”.
The “Sengoku BASARA” series consists of action games that represent unique and revolutionary worldviews in Japan’s era of the warring states while allowing players to create stylish heroes. Since releasing the first title of this series in 2005, Capcom has been using its single content, multiple usage strategy to utilize this captivating perspective of the world in a broad spectrum of applications.
“Sengoku BASARA Card Heroes” for Mobage is a new social game developed jointly by Capcom and KLab Inc. Players can enjoy a variety of quests by using cards that depict Masamune Date, Yukimura Sanada and other familiar warlords in the “Sengoku BASARA” series. The objective is to combine and develop cards in order to assemble a deck composed of the strongest warlords. Another goal is creating the most powerful alliance by cooperating with friends.
In “Browser Sengoku BASARA”, players aim for unity in the world while utilizing cards based on warlords who appear in the series. By competing and cooperating with other players, individuals try to enlarge and develop their domains. Bringing together “Browser Sangokushi” of MarvelousAQL Inc. and “Sengoku BASARA” of Capcom will make it possible to distribute content that will be enjoyable for people ranging from fans of the “Sengoku BASARA” series to first-time players.
Capcom is targeting many opportunities in the rapidly expanding market for online games. The goal is to increase sales of online content (mobile, PC online and downloads for consumer games) to 30 billion yen in the fiscal year ending March 2015.
Going forward, by investing in leading content, expanding the user base, and creating many opportunities for profit through the single content multiple usage strategy, Capcom will strive to increase achievement even further.
