    is dis dat game filled wit a obnoxious amount o’ panderin’ an’ fanservice?

    You humies confuse me so very much.

  • Bloodios

    I would like someone to clarify what exactly is Shinovi Versus. Is it a remake, a sequel, or a spin-off? If it is a sequel or a spin-off, and assuming that any version of the game ever get localized, is it necessary to play the original 3DS version in order to fully grasp the plot?

    • Kazziyan

      This is a spin-off. Producer said he’d like to keep the main series on the 3DS.

      As far as I know, not really. Only thing you’re missing is knowing the characters from the previous game being in it, I think?

      • DrForbidden

        Technically, I think this game qualifies as a spin-off AND a sequel. It’s set in the same universe and features some of the same characters, though the story focus is shifted towards a new group of kunoichi.

        As for the story in the previous instalments, I think each one is self-contained, but it would probably be best if you knew the backstory of the world and have a general idea of what came before. You probably don’t need to play them, just read the synopses somewhere.

        • Kazziyan

          That too! I think the main thing Burst allowed was to play as the rival clan. So yeah, reading a synopsis to get familiar with the 2 clans would be a good idea.

    The art is amazing.

    It would’ve taken a few seconds to look at one of the 5 Senran Kagura websites the girl on the left is featured on but her name is Asuka and she’s practically the protagonist.

    Thanks everyone for telling me who she was. I would’ve looked it up myself, but I’ve been away this weekend and had limited computer access, as I’m sure you could tell by my unfortunately untimely updates. I’ll be back tomorrow.

    Okay I’d totally buy that…
    first of it’s from Marvelous AQL basically XSEEDs senpais (a really good publisher)
    2. Its cell shading style is gorgeous
    3. Gameplay looks really fun
    4. That artwork looks absolutely amazing.
    5. The soundtrack of the previous 3DS game was really rich in variety (examples here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGUd2HxdPwk&feature=relmfu )
    6. Even if they decide to drop a european release and XSEED would pick it up for the US we could at least play and understand it, thanks to the PSVita being a little less picky than the 3DS.
