The Senran Kagura New Title Presentation 2017 took place early this morning, and with it we got a bunch of announcements for upcoming games. Sit back as we cover everything that was discussed in the Senran Kagura stream.
The first announcement of the Senran Kagura stream was one of the things the series is best known for: DLC. Tomorrow, Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash will add Bashou as a playable character in Japan. Bashou, a character from the mobile game Senran Kagura: New Wave G Burst, will be available for a discounted price of 390 yen until August 8th.
Also announced was an upcoming game for the Nintendo Switch, titled Peach Ball: Senran Kagura. This title is a Senran Kagura-themed pinball game which will feature HD Rumble support. Players will be able to feel the springing and vibrations when the ball hits an object or the body of a character.
Following this is another game for the Nintendo Switch, Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura. This game stars Asuka, voiced by Hitomi Harada. The player will be able to massage her in an effort to relieve her anxiousness. The game will be available on the Nintendo eShop sometime this year for the price of 1,000 yen.
Translation of gameplay details by Gematsu:
Asuka’s appearance 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.
Next up, we have Shinobi Master Senran Kagura: New Link for iOS, Android. This game puts players in the role of the girls’ master where he will aid them in winning the shinobi martial arts tournament known as the “Shinobi Masters.”
This mobile game will feature 20 playable characters at launch with more to come. Players can mix and match characters from different factions to form their ideal team. Additionally, there is a group of new girls—Senkou, Fubuki, and Gekkou.
- Hanzo National Academy: Katsuragi, Ikaruga, Asuka, Yagyuu, and Hibari
- Homura Crimson Squad: Hikage, Yomi, Homura, Mirai, and Haruka
- Gessen Girls’ Academy: Yozakura, Murakumo, Yumi, Shiki, and Minori
- Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy: Imu, Murasaki, Miyabi, Ryobi, and Ryona
You can pre-register right now through the game’s official website . Marvelous will add various rewards based on the number of registrations. For instance, 81,000 registrations will unlock a “Watermelon Master” Super Rare card. Additional bonuses can be found here.
That’s not all for the Senran Kagura Stream. Marvelous also announced that we will be getting not just a remaster, but a remake of the 3DS title, Senran Kagura Burst, dubbed Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal. This title will transform the side-scrolling action game into a full-on 3D action game.
If that’s not enough for you, this game will also feature a remake of Senran Kagura: Skirting Shadows. Both games will feature the modern visuals we have come to love, and will be sold together for 6,980 yen. The game is scheduled to launch in Japan on February 22, 2018.
It wouldn’t be a Senran Kagura title without a limited edition bundle. The “Nyuu Nyuu DX Pack” will cost 10,810 yen and will include the following (translation provided by Gematsu):
- A Nan Yaegashi-illustrated special box
- Booklet and long drama CD
- Limited edition-original packaging
- Set of six character pair Lover’s straps
- “Nyuu Nyuu Special DLC” five item set illustration card - Download code to obtain Yumi as a playable character early
- Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal digital soundtrack
- Hanzo National Academy Old Uniform and Burst Girls Uniform two-set (five color variations)
- Diorama motion “Co-Sleeping Set”
Last, but not least, the Senran Kagura stream had one final game announcement, Senran Kagura 7EVEN: Shoujo-tachi no Koufuku (Girls’ Happiness) for PlayStation 4. Not much information was revealed aside from a 2018 launch in Japan. The teaser trailer for Senran Kagura 7EVEN also announced an upcoming second season of the Senran Kagura TV anime.
