New Famitsu-watermarked screenshots of upcoming sequel and spin-off.

Famitsu.com has gone up with its online previews of Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson and Dekamori Senran Kagura, providing new screenshots and details on the upcoming sequel and spin-off. Find both sets compiled below.

Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson

Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson reconstucts the stories of the previous two games, leading to new developments. The battle stage is set in the vivid ancient city of Kyoto. The game offers remodeled graphics, character models included; support for full stereoscopic play; a new “Pair Battle” system, in which players can instantly switch between two characters depending on the situation, who can pair up to unleash “Joint Secret Ninja Arts” attacks; and co-op play to take down enemies together with a friend.

New characters, such as Kagura and Naraku (pictured together, left and right respectively, below) are set to appear. And if you have save data from Senran Kagura Burst, you can play as Ikaruga’s brother Murasame. Otherwise, he’ll be available as paid downloadable content.

    Life and hometown….. life and hometown everywhere! :P

  • TheExile285

    One thing I hope is that they don’t clothe ripping scenes for the male characters because that will make me never want to use them lol. I’m interested to see how Murasame fights.

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      inb4 otome scenes

      Surely fangirls won’t pick this game up, right…?

      • Budgiecat

        Only if there’s a slight totally vague suggestion of Yaoi in it…

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          I wonder how large (or small, rather) their female fanbase is anyway. There has to be some girls out there playing this for the explosive heavy breast action too.

          • Budgiecat

            of course..

            Hey you changed your avatar again!!

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              Yeah. I got tired of keeping up with different avatars and such, so I’m just connecting it with my Facebook, lol. Any time I change my avatar there, it will change here from now on.

              Makes things easier. That talk is better left for the free forum though.

          • fyi1191

            Don’t forget them fangirls have Sengoku Basara.

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              Fangirls? More like fujoshi. Damn them for making yaoi out of yaoi that wasn’t there to begin with.

              Then again… I’m sure there are fanboys which would like a threesome with girls in Senran Kagura and fantasize them as being lesbians too, lol.

              • fyi1191

                You bet. Like the obvious couple, HomuraXAsuka.

    • Budgiecat

      It’ll also give feminist ‘gamer’ journalist/blogger Anita Sarkeesian more ammo for her ranting on game sexism. And more Kotaku threads on it.

      • Xaltmas

        You’d think Anita and places like Kotaku would be all for equal-opportunity fan-service.

        • Budgiecat

          But then they’d have nothing to rant about…

        • Pyrofrost

          No, you don’t understand, if that shit happens, gaming news sites like Kotaku will be forced to do “real” journalism. Not just make “click-bait”

          Feminists, like Anita Sarkeesian would then have to form arguments around logic, reason, and facts.
          Rather than get on youtube and rant, “we’re victims, we’re oppressed RAWR!” #patriarchy

          (Meanwhile, she turns off her comments section to silence discourse. Evidently, she thinks her voice is the only one that should be heard, and she just wants a bunch of head-bobbing, “yes-men”)

          • FiachSidhe

            As opposed to disingenuous, horny virgin nerd guys, and their amazing strawman arguments.

  • Xaltmas

    The graphics are certainly impressive for SK2. I’ll admit I’m not so hyped for this rhythm thingy anymore though. Looks a little eh.

    Not sure what I expected tho.

    • Budgiecat

      Here are the rhythm games I actually liked over the years:

      Bust a Groove series
      Custom Beat Battle Draglade
      Slap Happy Rhythm Busters
      B Boy (well not rhythm based but obviously tied to music)

      Most are meh

      • Xaltmas

        I always thought the DJMax games were pretty good. Shame that there will probably never be any new ones.

        • Budgiecat

          I never really got to play those

          I remember owning the controller for PS1 konami Beatmania…

        • MosquitoLemon

          Yeah, DJMAX totally blew Beatmania out of the water for me. Granted, my favorite was Clazziquai edition, which was apparently made for people who suck at rhythm games, hahahaah. :0

      • MosquitoLemon

        Your working knowledge of fairly obscure games is impressive. You get 2 points for Draglade and 1 point for Slap Happy Rhythm Busters. You can score some bonus points if you can tell me what the hell the ‘um’ in ‘umjammer lammy’ meant.

        • Budgiecat

          Have you ever played Dance! Dance! Dance! by Konami and Lupin the 3rd Spank the Monkey Edition for PS1? You could swap your own music CD into D!D!D! and the characters could then dance battle to custom songs….

          I don’t know what the um means other than Lammy said um a lot when she was nervous or shy..

          http://www.gakki.com/catalog30/fernandes_ujl2000.jpg

          No if we go by the literal Japanese title: Un Jama Rami, then it could mean “Yeah” but otherwise her catch line was ‘leave it to Lammy’

      • Chogokin

        I don’t see Pop’n Music, GuitarFreaks, DrumMania, Beatmania IIDX, or Taiko no Tatsujin on that list.

    • Pyrofrost

      Personally, I never get rhythm games because I “like” them, I actually hate them. However, the things associated with them can make them awesome.
      That’s why I love Theatrhythm, that’s why I’m hyped about P4DAN and this, that’s why I love Haruka’s story in Ryu ga Gotoku 5, and that’s why I’m really hoping for a “Tales of” rhythm game for the 20th anni.

  • Eclipse

    Lol, I completely forgot that Takaki also writes lyrics.

    I can’t wait to hear Hara Yumi’s song, she has such an angelic voice <3

    • fyi1191

      *thumbs up* She is after all, a part of Idolm@ster.

    • Pyrofrost

      I can not wait! ^_^

  • Duc PC-QB

    Senran Kagura 2 – Impressive sequel, seems like they put a lot of effort into it

    Senran Kagura cooking blah blah – The idea maybe interesting but looks like it just a half ass title, reusing model, animation, old ugly UI, boring gameplay. Nothing to see here.

  • Luna Kazemaru

    Dekamori trailer just got taken down from YouTube due to “a violation of YouTube’s policy on nudity or sexual content.”

  • Pyrofrost

    Hopefully since XSEED is part of Marvelous, the turnaround on this will be quick.

    • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

      XSEED still feels like Marvelous in name only, tbh. So I don’t expect the turn around speed to be that high. At least it’ll come though, that’s good, right?

  • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

    So for SK2, they removed the 2D side scrolling gameplay and favored the 3D gameplay instead… it was fun while it lasted…

    Also… “big breasts hyper cooking battle”…. 。◕‿◕。

    • tubers

      It still kinda is. It’s not full 3D like the VITA. It’s just the camera perspective is shifted.

      SK2’s boss battles will have full 3D gameplay tho.

      I guess it will prove whether full 3D gameplay is superior for the series.

      It would no longer be surprising if SK3 on the 3DS is full 3D.

      • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

        > SK2’s boss battles will have full 3D gameplay tho.

        Well…. It’s not fully 3D gameplay nor is it side scroll….

    • kurosan9712

      the 3D here was meaning that it will support stereoscopic 3D everywhere, unlike original games. Most of the game will still be a side scroller, with a bit shifted camera.

      • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

        Just say it is like the first game but with a 3D camera view…

        • kurosan9712

          Well, you can say that. I’m not good with expressing myself in a simple manner.

  • kurosan9712

    Lol, so I can unlock Ikaruga’s loser bro who got 6th place in kusarigama tournament in which only 7 people ever participated?
    Ha-ha-ha. This. Will. Be. FUN!

  • InfernoCommander

    I’m so ready for this. Hope all these games make it stateside.

  • PrinceHeir

    boobies for everyone :)
