Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson

Marvelous AQL officially announced Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson during its “Senran Kagura Busty Breasts Hyper Presentation” live stream.

The game, which leaked yesterday via Famitsu, is due out on August 7 in Japan for 6,480 yen. A “Nyuu Nyuu DX Pack” will include a special box, limited package design, five figure Toy Works Niitengo set of the Homura Crimson Squad, a drama CD, and an arranged soundtrack. First-print copies include a four-CD soundtrack compilation of the background music from each Senran Kagura title.

As previously detailed, development of Senran Kagura 2 is being handled by Tamsoft. The game is set in Kyoto, and two characters can partner up in the new “Pair Battle” system and make use of “Joint Secret Ninja Arts” attacks. Co-op play is supported, as is full stereoscopic play.

Characters from the Hanzo Academy and Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy are confirmed to appear. Two new characters include Kagura (voiced by Yuki Matsuoka) and Naraku (voiced by Yuuko Kaida). Murasame will also be playable, but you need save data from the previous game. Otherwise you’ll have to pay for him as downloadable content later.

Watch the first gameplay footage below. View some images at the gallery.

Thanks, Re: Gigen.

    The graphics look amazing. It looks like SV but with more of a side scroller style. Also, the new transformation animations are nice.

    Day fucking one. Burst is easily my favorite 3DS game that doesn’t have “Zelda” in the title, and this one looks like a huge step up.

    • Budgiecat

      Why not day 2, Give day one a break from all the fucking

  • Pyrofrost

    Come on XSEED!

    Due to the 3DS’s handicap, even importers are screwed here. Please give this one priority!

    Do it for “life!” Do it for “hometown!”

  • bloodiOS

    Holy shit, am I delusional or does the game actually have antialiasing?

    • 罪罰

      They have budget!

  • XXX

    Senran Kagura games can only be a good thing.


    What a fantastic jump backwards! Camera angles are awful too… I don’t have a larger budget myself so I will probably keep playing Shinobi Versus which will remain the best one

    • Luna Kazemaru

      you are trying to hard.

  • Aleksandrina

    Are Kagura and Naraku part of a new team? l_l

  • fyi1191

    Homura and co. are back to Hebijou?

  • Darkrise

    Hm, camera angle is in need of fixing.

    I love that the 3rd character can be unlocked by having savedata from previous games. That means they aren’t completely gay yet, as they were in SV, where 2 characters were DLC only. Hated that.
    This time, they decided to make a little present for those who supported first games. Takaki, you gained a bit of my trust back.

  • Eclipse

    Nice, that LE sounds just as awesome as the one they did for SV.

    It’d be awesome if they also add Kiriya-sensei to the roster.

  • Kobracon

    WTF THANATOS? I did NOT expect giant monster battles, SK2 is looking good! The semi-sidescrolling-ness seems to be from the original SK on the 3DS I presume?

  • PrinceHeir

    yes more Senran Kagura :)

  • dior

    Hope we get nipples this time around..
