Book Review: 戦国BASARA2英雄外伝(HEROES)オフィシャルコンプリートワークス (BASARA 2 Heroes Official Complete Works)

戦国BASARA2英雄外伝(HEROES)オフィシャルコンプリートワークス (BASARA 2 Heroes Official Complete Works)

Sengoku Basara (戦国BASARA) is a series of action video games developed and published by Capcom stretching across several consoles based in feudal Japan. It was released in the US as Devil Kings.

Compared to 戦国BASARA2 オフィシャルコンプリートワークス (BASARA 2 Official Complete Works), this volume has less of the colourful splashy ink wash character art.

Most of the character design is now in the anime/manga style with the clean lines.Some new characters are introduced and the old characters have their costumes slightly redesigned. Each character has a splash page on its own with the uncoloured line art on the page beside.

There are also 3D versions of the characters, complete with the weapons and accessories they hold. More pages of storyboard sketches are devoted to the anime cut scenes this time, but shortened for the book. There are still merchandise graphics and interviews with the voice actors.

This book should probably appeal more to the fans of the game.
