Senran Kagura 2, a digital rhythm game, and a SV followup.

Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus

Update: Each game has been officially announced: Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson, Dekamori Senran Kagura, and Senran Kagura: Estival Versus.

Original: Three new Senran Kagura projects are in development, this week’s Famitsu reveals.

The first game is Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson for 3DS. Developed by Tamsoft and due out August 7 in Japan for 6,998 yen, it is a side-scrolling action game with 3D field boss battles. An existing male character will be playable.

The second project is Dekamori Senran Kagura, a “hyper big breasts cooking rhythm game” for PS Vita where losing means stripping down. Developed by Meteorise and due out March 20 in Japan, the full game will feature 22 songs. The Hanzo Academy and Homura Crimson Squad character set will be available or 2,400 yen. And on April 24, the Death Cram School and Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy character set for 2,500 yen. The full set, featuring both sides, will cost 4,083 yen and be available on day one.

And the third game is Senran Kagura: Eestival Versus, a yet to be detailed title for an unannounced Sony platform. Information on this project is still secret, but it appears to be part of the Shinovi Versus genealogy.

Expect the official announcements of these projects tomorrow, January 8, at 13:30 Japan time on Marvelous AQL’s Senran Kagura live stream.

Thanks, Game Nyarth.

    It seems there is much life and hometown on the horizon!
    This pleases me~

  • Kaitou

    This is music to my ears. I’m already excited.

  • bloodiOS

    Hmm… I hope there would be Vita ports of the 1st and 2nd game someday.

    • OlimacFTW

      Or maybe a port of SV for 3DS.

      • bloodiOS

        Or both.

      • Kevadu

        Don’t think SV would actually run on a 3DS without seriously redoing all the models and stuff for lower polygon counts…

        • kurosan9712

          You do know that it isn’t really that great in graphical part? Shadows are like 8bit, and models are really edgey. It wouldn’t look as great if not for AMOLED screen Vita has(it doesn’t look great on VitaTV, for example). It was like they made it for 3DS, but then ported to Vita. It probably wouldn’t be much of a problem to port it to 3DS, if they wanted.
          Considering it doesn’t even have as much enemies on the screen at once as Koei musou games do, it’d probably run normally.


    They must have skipped basic maths if they’re bringing the main series back on 3DS… I hope there will be at least concrete information about Senran Kagura EV

    • MrKappa

      They didn’t really have a choice as it was promised to the fanbase that the mainline games would be on 3DS.

      • Thomas FROEHLICHER

        Does that even matter anymore? 200% of the fanbase moved to Vita

        • Pyrofrost

          and today, there is a 200% chance of rain.

          • Sevyne

            Time to go dancing outside in my underwear.

            • Pyrofrost

              FUCK YEAH!

        • Luna Kazemaru

          can you not say dumb shit like this please

  • Aleksandrina

    Looking forward to the one on Vita/PS3 the most.

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    Calling it right now, this means we get a season 2 for anime.

    (Please let it be about SV)

  • Raiu

    “hyper big breasts cooking rhythm game”

    What’s with rhythm games popping up for the Vita lately?

    • Kurisu Makise

      I came to ask this exact question…as I’m now understanding it, the platform sells on the back of Hunting Action, RPG, and Rhythm games. Oh I guess Visual Novels count too, so those.

  • Spectacularity

    Yay! Can never have enough Senran Kagura. I’ll be honest though I’m more interested on the follow up for SV!

  • Xaltmas

    Day one for all three. Hopefully the 3DS game is running on a new engine or something, because Burst has some pretty big slowdowns.

  • Pyrofrost
    • Xaltmas

      That was embarrassing to read.

  • TheExile285

    Persona Stream is that you? Lol, hopefully SK EV is another SV for Vita. Pretty excited for Deep Crimson. ^_^

  • Eclipse

    All three of the announcements sound great~!

    Day one for all of ’em.

  • The Grim Heaper

    3DS… guess I won’t be playing it for the next… well, long time. :(

  • Xaltmas

    The fact that the platform wasn’t announced for Eestival Versus makes me think it could be a console game or something.

    I mean, they announced the other game for Vita.

  • rekka_zan

    Localize them all, based XSEED!

  • PrinceHeir

    PSP as well?!?! O___O

    tbh i really prefer the Versus spin offs than the main games since it’s in 3D plane and all.

    yes more boobies!!!

  • kurosan9712

    Hell yeah. Takaki didn’t betray now, since he kept his promise to keep the MAIN series on 3DS.
    Okay, my JPN 3DS is all wet from this news.
    Not waiting anything for Vita, since I hated SV for how short it was to complete everything there is in the game(around 23 hours for me). Compared to 40 hours I spent to get all internal trophies(well 3DS doesn’t have external trophy system, but to hell with it) in original Kagura(not even Burst yet) – it sucked a lot.
    Oh, and musou gameplay just isn’t what I love about the series. I loved it’s side-scrolling action gameplay original game/Burst had.
