New Sengoku Basara & dual-wielded saws, together at last

Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes looks absolutely ridiculous, and I like that. The latest batch of screenshots, featuring man in parachute pants who rides a big wooden head and a warrior who dual-wields saws, do little to make the game appear more sane. 

I am fully aware that it’s demented and weird to look forward to this more than Marvel vs. Capcom 3 or Dead Rising 2, but what can I say? I’m a lover of all things hack n’ slash and Sengoku Basara is tuned to my exact wavelength. It’s ostentatious, camp as Christmas, and should provide me with all the button mashing I need. 

That’s enough for me, anyway.
