On February 1st, 2019, Inside Games posted their interview with Kenichiro Takaki, the producer of Senran Kagura and the president of Honey∞Parade Games. When asked about the status of Senran Kagura 7EVEN, Takaki said that the original idea for the game will need to be reconsidered and that what they originally planned for it would make it impossible to release.
Earlier during the interview, Inside Games asked Takaki about his thoughts on Sony Interactive Entertainment’s change to sexual content regulations. He believes that PlayStation is not the only platform that will be affected. Restrictions on sexual content will be eventually affect every platform and genre. It’s just happening sooner than he anticipated.
Inside Games later asked if Takaki thought about moving the Senran Kagura series to the PC. He stated that they did consider transferring to PC, but it would be difficult to make it only available for the PC due to the niche nature of the series.
Thanks to Gematsu for the translated quote.
It is not impossible. Considering the genre and its niche nature, it would be tough to make the game only for PC. The PC has a lot of realistic shooters, so hmm… If we can do that we will, but a lot is uncertain right now.
For now, the plans to move the Senran Kagura series to PC and the development of Senran Kagura 7EVEN are unknown, but Kenichiro Takaki has been contemplating what to do with the series and if changing platforms will make a difference.
