Sengoku Basara (known in English as Devil Kings) is a crowd fighting game developed by Capcom.
In an interview of Hiroyuki Kobayashi by IGN, Kobayashi stated that Devil Kings is actually a mix-up of Devil May Cry and Street Fighter, where some of the moves of the characters are based on Devil May Cry itself.
