STATUS
SNK once again try their hand at a side-scrolling action game. Looks good, sounds great, but plays really awkwardly.
The feudal Japan / time travel setting is superb and original, but it's more of a missed opportunity than anything else.
Hard to find in good condiion!

Cardboard box Neo Geo packaging, 55-Meg cartridge, monochrome booklet.

STATUS
The SFC gets itself a rather rough conversion of Sengoku, from Data East of all people.
A bit patchy, but it keeps the arcade's 2-player mode. It has also gained a lot of value as a Data East / SNK collectible.

Standard SFC cardboard packaging, 8Mbit cartridge, colour booklet.

STATUS
Sammy's Mega-CD version cuts to the chase and drops the 2P mode in order to focus on the visuals and gameplay.
The end result is OK-ish, but again this could have been a lot better if it had a bit more work put into it. As it stands it just isn't a patch on many other games in the genre.

CD case, Mega-CD CD-ROM disc, colour booklet, spine card.

STATUS
Despite its questionable gameplay, Sengoku's stylish 'Feudal Japan' theme has seen it become a cult classic of sorts in Japan.
Case in point: the Neo Geo CD version is today quite a rare item...
