Major Senran Kagura Announcements

Early this week a special Marvelous livestream dedicated to Senran Kagura aired where several announcements related to the franchise were made across several platforms.

Let’s begin with the Nintendo Switch announcements.

First of all is the heavily promoted Shinobi Refle; -Senran Kagura-. From the looks it it’s a waifu interaction simulator with Asuka. Not one I’m personally interested in but I’m sure there are others who are.

Game description:

Asuka’s form and story changes through massages! Make physical contact with her starting with massages from your own hands!
Depending on where you touch, her mood will change. Take a look into the deep psyche of Asuka different from her usual self.
Enjoy Asuka in various forms, including “club junior,” “little sister,” “idol,” “tutor,” and more.

Through HD Rumble, you can enjoy heart-pounding physical contact. The feeling of a comfortable massage is more realistically transmitted through HD Rumble.

Peach Ball: Senran Kagura.

The second Switch game to be announced is Peach Ball: Senran Kagura. It’s an SK pinball game. More interested in this one than Shinobi Refle. Pinball is fun. Add SK goodness to it and it should be a neat way to pass the time every now and then.

Now we go to a mobile game announcement.

The game is called Shinobi Master Senran Kagura: New Link for Android and iOS. Most likely a mobile version of the 3DS SK games. The initial roster will feature 20 girls with more coming in the future.

Moving on to the PS4 announcements.

Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash is getting another DLC character in Bashou, who debuted in the card game Senran Kagura: New Wave G Link. She’ll be joining the Ikkitousen, Dead or Alive and Super Sonico DLC characters. Also there will be some PS VR updates for the changing room mode.

Next up is a 3D remake of the 3DS games Senran Kagura Burst and its predecessor Skirting Shadows in one package. Basically take the 2D beat em-up gameplay from the 3DS games and change it to the current Musou style game. No word on whether the sequel Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson will also get a 3D remake. If not then more than likely it’s because the Playstation games continue the story from Shinovi Versus (which also takes place after Burst but goes in a different direction from Deep Crimson) and onward.

Third is a brand new entry in the franchise called Senran Kagura 7EVEN that is scheduled for a Fall 2018 release in Japan.

Last but not least animeniacs rejoice for the Senran Kagura anime is getting a second season! No word on when it’ll air yet. It is also unknown when in the timeline it’ll be set. Will it be during Deep Crimson, Shinovi and onward or before 7EVEN? We’ll have to wait and see.

  1. I never expected this franchise to grow so big, back when I played the original (the same applies to Neptunia.) Looks like I may have to buy a Switch. I’m not into pinball, but who can resist a waifu simulator?

    Little bit of a warning, its pretty dark. While Toyoko Necro and Atlach Nacha we’re written by you’re edgy twelve year old brother in the vein of Shadow the Hedegehog, this was done by the faux-intellectual sister who thinks everything should be depressing.
