Throughout the week, we'll be releasing Hero Cards for each of the playable characters giving you a little back story on each character and some of their special moves. Just for the PlayStation.Blog, Capcom is giving you a preview of the first four of the 16 playable characters.

166w ago - Capcom Europe Brand Manager Richard Earl has shared a video introducing Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes for PS3 today.
To quote: It's Rich from Capcom here today to talk to you about the next Capcom title, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes. This will be released on 15 October.
Hopefully you will have already heard of the game, but if you haven't, here is a quick introduction, in a form that everyone can easily understand... a fun fact list!
1) The game takes place during the Sengoku era in Japan. This period between the 15th and early 17th centuries was also known as the warring states period as many warlords and clan vied for control of Japan.
2) The decisive battle during this period took place at Sekigahara in 1600 which cleared the way for Tokugawa Ieyasu to establish the first Shogunate in Japan. This battle is also the main event in the game!
3) All of the characters in the game are based on real historical figures from the Sengoku era.
4) But not all of their moves and powers are based on real life abilities (well, strictly speaking we don't know that but I'm pretty sure they aren't all possible - check out the video if you don't believe me).
