The latest installment in the Senran Kagura series, Senran Kagura: Estival Versus, has just been launched in the US. Accompanying it is an action packed launch trailer, completing the run of recent videos.
Senran Kagura has made quite a name for itself in recent years, from the playful yet popular 3DS versions to the titillating anime series. Senran Kagura has done so well on our own shores that we keep getting more, and as of today, we can add another to the list. Senran Kagura: Estival Versus is newest in the line of games, making an appearance on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. As the seventh game in the series, Estival Versus adds even more to the greater Senran universe.
The story of Estival Versus picks up where Shinovi Versus left off and acts as a direct sequel to the 2014 PS Vita title. Estival Versus expands and improves upon its predecessor, including five new characters that have never been seen before, as well as incorporating some extra series crossover characters. The playable character count in Estival Versus has hit a staggering 34, so there’s plenty of action to keep you going for some time to come.
Estival Versus follows a similar formula to other titles in the series, with players selecting from a series of missions to complete. As a beat ’em up game, players will choose their character and costume before venturing out into the field, taking on swathes of enemies by utilizing their skill and special attacks. Estival Versus also expands upon the depth of its characters with plot-based segments, with short visual novel style interludes coupled with more action orientated adventure scenes.
With such a large range of characters, Estival Versus boasts its most customizable roster to date. Each girl comes with her own style of martial arts, allowing for powerful combinations comprised of both strong and weak attacks. By using your skills to defeat enemies, players will earn XP and completion grades, unlocking new moves and of course – new costumes. Completing missions and setting high scores will provide more clothing for players to experiment with, as well as a large variety of accessories to go along with it.
Senran Kagura: Estival Versus released today on March 15h in the US, with an expected release of March 18th in Europe. XSEED has christened its release with a new launch trailer, which you can check out below. XSEED has also been putting out other videos leading up to Estival Versus’ release, which you can check out on their YouTube channel . These videos include some new trailers, as well as a comprehensive stream by the team themselves. The boob ninja are back.
