Sengoku Basara Cross is a VS Fighting game based on the Devil Kings series by Capcom. A game very similar to the Dynasty Warriors/Samurai Warriors series. However, this time Capcom decided to let ArcSys do the job since they’re making it as a VS Fighting game. Probably after the success of Guilty Gears series.
The sprite animation in Basara Cross is somewhat “barely sufficient” like HnK did. Backgrounds are in 100% 2D i think. Comical elements are left intact like some previous gg-based titles. Mostly appears when stuff like “Clashing” happens.
Players are ordered to select either one of the two bodyguards at the Character select screen. These ‘bodyguards’ will stay at the background layer of the stage until you call for them “Press the X button”. As a Bonus, you can also do a Super Special Tag Move should you press X right-after you execute a normal super special with a minimum of 1 level. These bodyguards have an icon & meter of their own right beneath the Character’s icon. So every one of those Maximum 5 Power Levels are yours only to use. None of the bodyguards will reduce your power. There are times when you must wait a little until they’re able to “Assist” you again.
This game have been tested with PCSX2. But the speed sucks, lol.
