Sengoku Basara X at the Capcom Private Show

Capcom has held a private show where their upcoming 2D fighter Sengoku Basara X made an appearance. Housed in the new Viewlix Taito cabinets (which uses an HD flat-panel monitor capable of at least 720p resolution and is used by Battle Fantasia and King of Fighters Maximum Impact Regulation A) attendees were able to get a taste of Capcom’s newest entry to the arcade market. Rumor has it however that Taito may not end up distributing the title and Capcom will release the game as a separate kit to anyone they please. This is certainly surprising and hopefully it means Capcom will get on the ball with arcades again (this is just speculation on my part of course).

Capcom also demonstrated a Pokemon Kid Vendor machine, some coin pusher titles and another medal game called Alien DANGER. Sadly War of the Grail was nowhere to be seen and if the game isn’t seen at the upcoming JAMMA event it might indicate that they no longer are developing for the Type X platform. I hope that it does show up however – the  arcade seems to be the perfect environment for a Dynasty Warriors style game.

Capcom’s new 2D fighter Basara X website update

July 27, 2007

The website for Cacpom’s upcoming arcade fighter (which remember, is NOT Street Fighter 4) Basara X (from my understanding, this is based on the Devil Kings series, if I am wrong please correct me) has been updated to include new information on the characters as well as the system play. Unfortunately the translator won’t work on most of the page as they put the text as part of the graphics and not separate HTML text. The artwork looks great at the very least and it’s certain that once again Capcom will show off their mastery of 2D animation as they have in the past. One thing I can glean out of the understandable information on the site is that this will include some sort of leveling up system – which makes me wonder if this is somehow a response to Taito’s Battle Fantasia which did happen to include some minor RPG elements in the gameplay.
