Sengoku Basara is a huge smash in Japan. It has spawned a stage play, a televised anime, a manga and even a licensed theme park attraction. That's not all.

Next year, the anime is getting a feature film version as the final episode of the TV anime's second season revealed that a movie version is in store. No other details about the film were given.

The TV series is produced by Production I.G, the company behind anime like Ghost in the Shell and the animated sequences in Kill Bill.

In Japan, Sengoku Basara is so popular that it was even used to encourage participation in local political elections.

I played the demo and I found it... underwhelming to say the least. Subpar graphics and animation (which I swear, save for the HD upgrade, a PS2 could pretty much display) and repetitive gameplay.

It is really sad how an amazing game like Uncharted 2 struggles to make a decent sale in Japan while mediocre games like Sengoku Basara sell gangbusters.
