Sengoku Providence received its worldwide release this morning and the Nutaku staff are spending the day battling for the honor of rival warlords! Everyone at the office is loving SuperHippo’s latest localization, so we’re going to give you some insight into how the team is playing the game so far.
After completing a brief tutorial, players who enter Sengoku Providence must choose between one of three great daimyo to serve in the contentious battles ahead: Oda Nobunaga, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, and Ieyasu Tokugawa. While the names of the great daimyo may sound familiar to players familiar with Japanese history, Sengoku Providence presents these classic historical figures with an interesting new twist: rather than grim medieval warlords, you’ll be fighting for super-kawaii anime girls.
Each of the Nutaku team members has picked a side and are gearing up for battle. Here’s the choices from three members of the staff:
“She’s the first daimyo you meet and associated with the element of fire, which is appropriate because Oda kicks serious ass whenever she appears. Ambitious, rambunctious, and completely merciless, Oda is serious waifu material. This time, Oda’s not going to get stabbed in the back by some traitor.... assuming I can just roll her in the gacha…”
“Aside from being the historical last-man-standing, Ieyasu is demure and seemingly reluctant to seize power, unlike the volatile Oda and insane Hideyoshi. Not only does she sport some kickass ryujin-style armor (which looks beautiful on her sprite), she’s also a busty brunette with a great voice actress for her H-scenes. What’s not to love?”
“Hideyoshi Toyotomi is a blonde bombshell, which automatically puts her head and shoulders above the rest in the looks department. She’s also super kinky, unlike the hidebound Ieyasu and firecracker Nobunaga, who are both too busy ranting about their god-given missions rather than being really down and dirty. If you’re looking for someone to conquer Japan with, go for the other daimyo - Hideyoshi is more the type you’d want to spend a weekend banging in the castle.”
Whichever daimyo you choose to serve in the single player game, once players advance past the seventh stage of their house’s questline, a whole new world of guild-vs-guild contests and other exciting game modes will open up to them. Sengoku Providence is very much a player-driven game, where contests between guilds mirror the turbulent conflicts of the Japanese era that shares the game’s name.
All the best,
The Nutaku Team
