Meet the characters and watch them kick butt.

Famitsu.com has published the second trailer for Marvelous AQL’s upcoming Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus. The first trailer was released in October. The latest weekly character update was published this morning. Watch today’s video below.

  • Barrit

    Looks good, now when’s the US release date? lol

    • Angel wing

      US dev doesnt like boobs.

      • Pyrofrost

        Neither do publishers, and neither do retail stores. Even “M” rated games are censored more than they should be. Why? Because stupid ass parents will buy an “M” rated game for their five year old. If a bit of cleavage or a curve is shown, they get fucking pissed off and flock to every media outlet they can get to and label the game a “sex game.”

        The general populace here is very immature. Not only that, but their moral compass is completely in the wrong direction.
        I would say the level of accepted violence is a bit more of an issue than the level of accepted sexualization.

        • RedWolfe

          This is true.

          But you do have to admit that there is an awful amount of fan-service in this trailer.

          • Kazziyan

            Eh this still isn’t as bad as God of War to me.Its just more of a matter if Nintendo or Sony will allow it, but if things like Dead or Alive can get pass, then I’m pretty sure this can make it to the eShop.

            It’s all messed up. (perception of what is allowed and not), The main problem is, they overreact far too much.

            • KurisuMakise

              I believe you mean Sony. This is a PS Vita game.

              • Kazziyan

                Whoops! I was thinking of Burst. Since Producer seems to want to bring that over first.

        • Bloodios

          God of War III, man. Nipples were shown, mini-love-making game can be played, sexual moaning can clearly be heard, and yet the rating board is pissed of at anime cleavage… Maybe the ones who occupied those chairs are those with the “no-sex-in my-CARTOON” kind of mindset…

          • Kazziyan

            Not even a cartoon considering its 3D and considering their positions, they aren’t stupid and should realize this is intended for an older market. But there’s no point in arguing it.

            Messed up perception. Oh well, I hope Nintendo can comply since Dead or Alive Dimensions made it, right?

          Ironically, the Witcher 2 has sex as a reward after you complete the quest… Not only that, the nude models were detailed as well…

          “Because stupid ass parents will buy an “M” rated game for their five year old.”
          Funny, because I watched a youtube video of that with CoD not too long ago… The parent even allows it so the blame can’t be put entirely onto the kids…

      • Learii

        but Senran Kagura: burst is already localizing to the west on nintendo eshop

        • Kazziyan

          It’s not. He just said he’d like to release it on the eShop, iirc.

          • Learii

            but is itt XSEED localize it

            • MrKappa

              I think you’re real turned around fella. Neither this game nor Burst have a localization announcement.

            • almostautumn

              Xseed talk a big mouth. They’re great, don’t get me wrong, but they Stand Behind as much as they Shout From Afar (Earth Seeker, anyone?). Outside of how blatantly “niche” this series would be in the west also, recognize that there’s not a chance in hell either that the 3DS title or this one would come through unscathed. And not just a little, but what would, for those of us who see the product as it is in full (and are of course the slim market who want it), absolutely destroy the experience.
              Localization of games like this are a lot of times worse than just being subjected to playing them in a language you don’t understand (or just the import-waiting period); western censorship is designed to just create a more forumlaic aesthetic— except the reason games like this and Mugen Souls and any other promiscuous game is neat and desirable is because, well, they’re promiscuous. No matter how you go at that, whether you’re turned on or you find it comical or you just enjoy the breath from experiencing something so unique, the idea that that, which is the entirely main component in this case, is slashed is just nonsense, and a total ruination of a genuine art-product and intimate experience.

          Keep praying. It’s weird you guys starts to believe him after all those “lies” he told.

          • Angel wing

            Sorry but until Ys Vita is localized , XSEED shouldnt give a shit about Kagura

            • Kazziyan

              Lol no.

  • uhawww

    Unable to resist the BOIN…

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    I’m not very much into this game’s ‘revealing’ aspect. But it looks pretty darn fun, and I’d probably play it.

    • Kobracon

      I find it oddly refreshing about how ‘open’ they are about these ‘features’. They aren’t trying to hide it, they’re flaunting it full force!

      • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

        It’s the games’ USP and it is primarily aimed at the Japanese gamer who can handle it. American game censors are completely different: abundant and gratuitous violence and gore is suitable for an M rating but God forbid your game is sexualized or features implied dry-humping (San Andreas re-rating), then they will punish you with AO.

        • Kobracon

          Hah indeed. Glad I live in a country that get stuff from both areas. Best of both worlds ^_^

    • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

      I’m waiting for my DX NyuNyu pack which should arrive shortly after I land on German soil.

  • Kazziyan

    My body is ready for everything.

  • fyi1191

    Time to get a VITA.

  • MrKappa

    I guess I’ll be picking up a Vita in February…

  • Raiyu

    This actually looks pretty damn fun, it doesn’t look like its crippled by framerate problems either.

  • Haku_Luvs_You

    That box looks like it comes with so many goodies!….. Well, Go big or go home, guess I’m buying that version.

    • ShinAsura

      That’s the DX pack

      • Haku_Luvs_You

        You wouldn’t happen to know how much it cost would you?

        • Hinataharem

          I think its like $140. (Sorry I don’t know how much that is in your currency if you aren’t american)

        • Kazziyan

          It is $121.46CAD on CDJapan.

        • fyi1191

          107.24 USD at AmiAmi.
          Still waiting for the shipping fee.

          • Kazziyan

            18% off ftw.

        • Haku_Luvs_You

          Expensive, but I thought it would be anyways. Thanks guys :)

        • ShinAsura

          about $125 minus shipping

  • ShinAsura

  • Kobracon

    0_0 Hellz YES!

  • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

    This trailer pretty sums up everything there is about Senran Kagura VS(Yes, including those ‘BOINK!’ moments)… After watching it, it looks fun as hell to play…

    • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

      Good luck with that. I don’t see issues with PEGI but ESRB would rate it AO as the Puritans they are. Somebody has to think of the children, after all -_-

    Is it me or these are 3D custom girl models…?

  • InfernoCommander

    This is a sick, sexist game objectifying women. I’ma import it anyway.

  • PrinceHeir

    delicious battles :)
