I'm not too sure when I read this, because I lost the articles, but I heard of 2 games that were being developed for the PS2. I just want to check if anyone else has heard of these games, or if I'm just crazy.

Sengoku Musou - Shin Sangoku Musou (Dynasty Warriors), only Japanese instead of Chinese. Same gameplay system as Dynasty Warriors 4, but it has characters from Japanese history instead of Chinese history.
Release date - March 2004 (Japan)

Shinsen Gumi - A samurai game based off of the Shinsen Gumi who were a military group in Japan sometime in the "Feudal Era". (I can't remember which Shogunate it was at.) Game specs unknown at this time.
Release date - Winter 2003 (Japan)
I know I saw this game on The Magic Box International Gaming News's site.

If anyone else knows anything about these games, or can just confirm their existence, please let me know. I was doing site updates today and I started to wonder if these were actually real since I haven't heard about them since their development information.

Saito, no. His assistant, Okita, yes.

Okita wasn't Saito's assistant. Okita was a captain of the first Shinsen gumi squad (I think...) who died of TB.





I found Kagami's sword in a junk yard.

And Yoji Shinkawa is doing the illustrations and handling the overall art directions for the Shinsen Gumi.

I'd love to play a game based on the Shinsen Gumi. A shame I couldn't play as Hajime Saito though.

You are correct. Thank-you for the correction.
This slipped my mind as I've been watching the Kenshin OVA a lot when people come over. Okita was Saito's assistant in that movie.

Thanks. This is the stuff that I'm looking for. It's good to know that I'm not crazy in the sense that this game does exist.

Now, has anyone heard anything about Sengoku Musou by chance? I still feel like I'm somewhat crazy because no one (except for one other person) has heard of it and no one seems to have any information about it on the net.

I can't even imagine how a game based on Japanese history would work. I guess it would be set up like Kessen, but Japan doesn't really have as many easily recognizable figures from that period as it would take to create a game. (I would think) It's not that there aren't a lot of interesting figures from Japanese history, it's just that they'd have to stretch things even further than Sangoku Musou to get them all together.
I wish Koei would do another Saiyuki game...(but maybe not an SRPG this time). We get plenty of Chinese novel goodness with 3 Houshin games and more Romance games than you can count, but my favorite book gets punked with only one game.

A game based on the Shinsen Gumi with Yoji Shinkawa as the "art director"?

:)

Ah...but his art really doesn't show through in the game, from what I can tell. It's like he's just the illustrater added as an afterthought.

Shinsen Gumi Official Site

Yoji is only handling the illustrations and designs for the game, gameplay wise i doubt there is much of his artistic influence. Perhaps i misphrased it previously. My apologies

Thanks for the site. Now all I need is for my friend who knows Japanese fluently to come and translate for me. I would get it translated, but it's an object inputted into the page, not plain HTML or XML.
Thanks again anyways.
