Sengoku Basara Cross Arcade Game Board Kit is a 2D fighting game which was developed collaboratively by Arc System Works and Capcom. It features elements of Capcom's previous Sengoku Basara games, with gameplay reminiscent of Arc System Works Guilty Gear series.|
There are 10 playable characters to select, with all the characters based on warriors from Japan's feudal era such as Nobunga Oda and Yukimura Sanada. Each character has a special "engun" character that can be summoned for an assist technique. This engun system is the basic assist mechanic in the game, and is very similar to the assist system used in the Marvel vs. Capcom series. The strength of the assist attack is dependent on when the player presses the assist button, with the assist attack building strength throughout the match.
When summoned, the assist character will react to the situation of the player, with three different assist moves available. If the assist button is pressed normally, then a basic assist attack will occur, however if the assist button is pressed whilst damage is being received, then the assist character will perform a counter attack. The third option is summon the engun character during a special move, which results in a special attack.
