Famitsu this week sat down with Marvelous AQL producer Kenichiro Takaki to discuss upcoming PlayStation Vita game Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus

Shinovi Versus features 3D fields, an upgrade from previous entries’ 2D fields, so now the degree of freedom is higher. The game system has been improved, as well, so that even players who aren’t good at action can get a taste with “Gaccha Play” (I’m not sure what this is, sorry) without spoiling the best of the series.

All of the game’s available costumes will rip when damaged, and development on the changing room is complete. All the characters can joint-own the costumes, and all of their models have been remade for PS Vita.

Regarding the appearance of previous player characters, Takaki said, “please expect it.” A third, secret ninja art is also being prepared.

The “V” instead of “B” in Shinovi Versus is a representation of the series’ entry on PlayStation Vita, according to Takaki.

“Normally when you are developing for multiple platforms, you try to make the game system balanced for each platform but in doing so I think you sully the good points of the platforms,” he said.

But why is Marvelous AQL putting the next Senran Kagura on PlayStation Vita?

“Because I wanted to make tits that could be licked,” said Takaki.

“Tits are life, ass is hometown.”

Takaki said Marvelous AQL also plans to continue the series on 3DS, so he’d be happy if all the Kagura get a lot of love.

Thanks, Game Jouhou.

    Thats what I’m talking about, homie.

    This article made me laugh.

    Is there a reason why the 3DS can’t be licked?

    • InsaneChronos

      By licking the 3DS you can get AIDS

        lol

      Replace “licked” with “touched” and you might better understand what Takaki meant. I think he was actually hinting to a gameplay gimmick that lets you interact with the girls via touch screen. Which is something that could not be done on the 3DS entries since the top screen isn’t touch enabled. Thus his desire to make a Vita title.

    Thumbs up for you Takaki :D

     “Gacha Play” is Japanese 2D fighting game term, and means something like “pressing buttons without knowing what they do”. Takaki meant to say, that those who aren’t good at action games can get into the best parts of Senran Kagura easily even with just randomly controlling the characters.
    …But yeah, I hope we get to see some gameplay soon. These games are awesome!

    • DrForbidden

      So it’s basically ‘button-spamming’, like in fighting games?

  • Solomon_Kano

    LMFAO. I haven’t played a game by him yet, but I love Takaki already.

    This guy is awesome…. already a fan. Shame there’s little to no chance of this getting a western release…

  • raymk

    I do however wish there was an option so the clothing didn’t rip.  What if I like my costume and don’t want it damaged?  I guess he didn’t think about that did he XD.

    I saw some gameplay of the 3DS version. It actually looks like a really fun beat’em up with fast paced action. Like DOA, the boobs seem to be a bonus feature ;D

    That may be the best quote I’ve ever heard from a developer.
