"Don't use your fists, use your brains. That's the only way to win."
Utsunomiya Hirotsuna is one of the six non-playable area warlords in Sengoku BASARA 3. He represents the Utsunomiya clan of Shimotsuke.
General information[edit | edit source]
He appears to be wielding a spear and uses fog to confuse his enemies. He fights alongside a tiger and do Kung Fu cries while fighting.
Though his element is ice, he isn't a big fan of the cold.
He can be recruited as an ally by completing his stage, the Battle of Kannagawa, as Sanada Yukimura.
His ally ability is XP Hog, which grants the player 500 XP if Hirotsuna isn't KO'd in battle. This becomes 1,000 XP when his confidence level is maxed out.
Historical Information[edit | edit source]
Utsunomiya Hirotsuna (1543 -1576)
Hirotsuna was the son of Utsunomiya Naotsuna. Owing to strife within Shimotsuke following the death of Naotsuna, Hirotsuna was forced to flee to the Satake domain as a child. He was married to a daughter of Satake Yoshiaki and with Yoshiaki's assistance was able to recover the Utsunomiya domain, which had been lost earlier to Nasu Takasada. He was succeeded by his son Kunitsuna.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
Hirotsuna is the only "generic spear" user to have a different stance compared to other spear-wielding generics and area warlords.
