The latest details are available below via Gematsu:
Nobunaga Oda (voiced by Takaya Kuroda)
“I will slay all who oppose my rule!”
A renowned military leader of the Sengoku period, Nobunaga Oda. Upon meeting Tsumugi in Honno-ji as it burns down around them, he is initially suspicious of the oddly-dressed woman. But with no other means to escape the hoards of undead surrounding them, he offers her a magic katana and asks her to join the fight. Broad-minded yet temperamental, Nobunaga can show glimpses of kindness behind his merciless savagery, earning the enduring loyalty of his ninja subordinate, Iyo. It seems he is determined to live in order to fulfill some great purpose…
Shingen Takeda (voiced by Shuka Saito)
“But I still wanna play!”
A renowned military leader of the Sengoku period, Shingen Takeda, as she appears in the Underworld. Though friendly and fun-loving, her battle prowess is undeniable. She constantly seeks to prove herself, often resorting to violence with childlike naivety. Although she’s continued her rivalry with Kenshin Uesugi in the Underworld, she can’t stand the constant scolding. That’s not to say Shingen can’t dish it out herself, though, like when she provokes Komimi by treating her like a child.
Kenshin Uesugi (voiced by Emi Uema)
“I am the incarnation of Bishamonten!”
A renowned military leader of the Sengoku period, Kenshin Uesugi, as she appears in the Underworld. This vision of beauty may carry herself with gracious dignity, but she couldn’t care less what anyone else has to say. Self-righteous in her benevolence, she ignores everyone else’s wishes and sets out to “save” them as she sees fit.
Although Kenshin works as a peacekeeper in the Underworld, her rivalry with Shingen continues unabated. With a tendency for snap judgments, she pronounces Hagane a shameless evildoer when they first meet just because of her outfit.
