Sengoku Densyo (translates from Japanese as 'Civil War Tradition') was released on February 12, 1991 in Japan.

This game is known outside Japan as just Sengoku.

The game includes different items which change the special attacks :
* Green : When 10 green items are collected, life gauge gain 1up
* Red : Samurai sword
* Blue : Double sword
* Purple : Holy sword
* Gold : Unknown effect

In level 2, there is a store called 'Boutique Athena' in the background with the original Athena logo from 1986's "Athena" by SNK.


Hold the attack button for a couple seconds to launch a burst of energy from the player's fist.

There are some samurais whose swords can be broken if the player bashes the attack button enough times. remember that this trick can be done when the player is in his normal form and bare-handed (no sword power-ups).
