Playable Characters[]



Non-Playable Characters[]





  • Attacks performed in conjunction with your partner will result in dealing bonus damage.
  • Characters level up in the midst of battle, and can utilize newly learned skills on the spot.
  • All three super moves are usable in battle, and can be cycled through as desired.
  • If timed correctly, evading will result in the desertion mechanic, temporarily slowing enemies.
  • Camps may have up to three levels, created by enemy strategist units / officers. To take these the player must defeat commanders on every level. To assist in this, there is a single-button system, in which the player will have to press the attack button along with the timing on-screen. This could be achieved as well if the player parried the attack of the Commander, and the timing-on screen will be appear to instantly kill the commanders within each level.
  • An 'Inrou of Enhancement' can be picked up mid-battle and used to give experience points to the character of your choice.
  • Weapons can be enhanced with stats of your choice (attack, defense, BASARA gauge, fighting spirit, or hit points) or even upgraded to new limits, using either whetstone, fortune hammer, or tamahagane steel items.
  • Weapons can also be combined to increase their potency and create different effects.
  • Bosses do not have the ability to use BASARA skills, nor possess sturdier defenses. But their armies become even more powerful than in the previous installment
  • Unlike in Sengoku BASARA 3, where you get a weapon by getting an Armor or Gold Armor, in Sengoku BASARA 4, your reward depends on the Score you get on your campaign in the battlefield. The Score could increase by killing enemies, gathering treasures, or doing a stylish move (like Clash, Parry, or Evasion). Normally, the Maximum score to get all the Treasures that was listed is 20000 or 25000. The treasures given to both of your characters that you used. Some of that scores will be stored in saved Experience Point for later use.

War Buddy[]

Players will be accompanied by a partner at all times who can be given commands by holding L2 and dragging a circle toward the desired target. This can be used on enemies, boxes, bases, etc.

This ally can also be tagged after they reach level 50, by pressing the R3 button. If tagged mid-combo, characters will immediately perform an attack upon switching to continue the chain.


When both you and your partner's BASARA gauges are full, and they are standing close enough together (the gauges will glow red), pressing L2 + Circle will activate a Giga BASARA attack. Ink sprays up from the ground to attack all surrounding enemies, and every character has a unique 'BASARA-e' image that will appear at the finish (Note: This can be activated in co-op as well, if the players are close enough to one another). Costumes will slightly affect the image of the finish.

Style Gauge and Maximum Style mode[]

Replacing the Hero/Battle Boost gauge is the Style gauge which works in a similar fashion. Once filled, it can be activated using L1 + R1, subsequently powering up your character's attack power and speed for a limited time, as well as slowing down surrounding enemies and increasing the exp and money earned.

Battle Army Formation Mode[]

Sengoku Basara 4 comes with even more variation of enemy formation. Now if the enemy officers exist, they could've commanded the entire army to do a Battle Army Formation, that obviously will make the player to become harder to maneuver in the heat of battle. Ranged Units like Archers, Riflemen, or Cannoner would be able to create a triangle formation which the units create an acrobatic moves by standing atop each other to create a pillar, and then shoot with a highly accurate precision to attack the player at the same time. Melee units like Pikemen or Swordsman could create a deadly formation to block your access to certain area. Each faction have its own unique characteristics formation to one another (For example, Oda army that have a powerful Riflemen Formation, Takeda army that have a powerful cavalry formation, and Ishida and Toyotomi army that have a powerful Spear units formation)

Game Modes[]

Sengoku Creation Mode[]

The main gameplay mode of the game, this is where character stories take place over a series of battles. In appearance, this mode seems to be a fusion of Story and Conquest Modes from Sengoku BASARA 2 and Sengoku BASARA 2 Heroes as well as Story and Unification Modes from Sengoku BASARA 3 Utage.

Every playable character will have a main route. However, some of them will also have a Drama route, said to be a more dramatic story. Fewer yet will also have an Anime route, featuring cutscenes animated by Production I.G.
