Kenichiro Takaki is wrapping Japan in happy... games.

Five days after its Japanese release, sales for sexy PlayStation Vita sequel Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus have topped 120,000 copies sold (packaged and download versions included), Marvelous AQL has announced. 

If its first week’s sales are less than 137,000, that would make it the third best-selling launch week PS Vita title so far in Japan. Hatsune Miku Project Diva F (159,592) is the first, and Persona 4 Golden is the second (137,076—though, Persona ended up with greater overall sales).

      I genuinely believe pigs will evolve into a form with the ability of flight before a western publisher thinks that is a good idea

    No surprise. Game looks absolutely excellent. I seriously wonder if Sony was like, “Hey, boob and butt game upcoming; Vita price drop?” Honestly, they made the right call too!

    *Anyone know how long it takes for Play-Asia to restock Asia version titles? Only reason I haven’t mine ordered yet.

    And the moral of the story: never doubt the power of hometown.

      Life and hometown, man. Life and hometown.

    • Damn straight…. Words to live by….

    Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus
    made the PS Vita = Perv’s System Vita…lol!
    Monster Monpiece
    Dead or Alive 5 Plus

    Oh, just you wait for the Sorceress and Amazon from Dragon’s Crown

    PS Vita’s main design criteria was the ability to touch jiggly jumblies.
    More boobs to come guaranteed.

    Localize it here!

  • uhawww

    Behold, the power of life and hometown.
    Just got my copy this weekend, and the game is better than I expected.
    Multiplayer is So. Much. Fun.

    • Dede Ogbe

      i know right? I thought the combat would be kind of repetitive or not as good seeing as the game was portrayed as mostly fan service, but this thing is Awesome!

    • DrForbidden

      I have yet to try the MP, but this game is addictive as hell, and fun to boot…

      BTW, I can’t seem to activate Dark/Shadow Tenshin… Anyone know how to do this?

      • fyi1191

        Bikini mode? In that case, hold R button and pinch/spread touch your screen. You’ll get a close up on the boobs if done correctly.

        • DrForbidden

          Uhhh, isn’t R the Block button?

                Yes, I read that wiki, but using R to Tenshin doesn’t work for me.

            • DrForbidden

              I’m saying it doesn’t work for me. Pressing and holding R just makes my character block, that’s all. Pinching the screen while blocking has no effect. I dunno what I’m doing wrong…

              • Haku_Luvs_You

                Hold R. Use both thumbs starting in the middle and swipe out. That’s how I do it, and it works for me :/

  • Dede Ogbe

    Got it today and this game is SOLID!!! worth every penny.

  • Eclipse

    Congratulations to Marvelous AQL & Kenichiro Takaki, I’m so happy that the game is a success! I can’t wait to get my copy tomorrow. ^_^

  • This game is seriously polished. It deserves to sell well.
    NGS2+ on the other hand…

    • Skerj

      And I was just about to buy NGS2+.

  • Ita Dakimasu

    Thank you for not attempting to add your ‘insights’ into why SKSV sold better than its 3DS predecessors. i like it when my news isn’t filled with thinly veiled opinions/spin.

  • ShinAsura(新阿修羅)

    Nothing new, awesome games generate awesome numbers. What’s not new is keeping the flow of great games like this , Persona 4 Golden and Project Diva F flowing in on a consistent basis

    Games sell systems

  • Games sell systems… In this case, boobs sell systems apparently…

    The ‘life and hometown’ phrase needs a meme…

  • Learii

    3DS version didn’t sale good as this one

    • ShinAsura(新阿修羅)

      Was wondering about that

    • ShinAsura(新阿修羅)

      Was wondering about that

      • Haku_Luvs_You

        I wonder if it has a bigger following now though. I mean now it has an anime, and manga. When the 3ds ones came out did it have those? Kind of hard to tell if it is because it’s on a sony system, or because it’s more popular now..

        • ShinAsura(新阿修羅)

          I think it helped, without the anime I wouldn’t have liked this as much as I do

          • Haku_Luvs_You

            The anime is terrific! They are doing a great job on it :)

            • ShinAsura(新阿修羅)

              Yep ^ ^

  • Kurisu Makise

    To think the best debut games are only in the 100k range, kind of sad. However, the more small budget hits they can cultivate in the 100k range, the better.

  • Syltique

    Now bring it over!

  • PrinceHeir

    Boobies and Niche games will save Vita!

  • 浪黒雷 (Roland Gmyrek)

    Game’s a blast, glad it receives the recognition it deserves. It looked great in trailers but it’s utterly gorgeous on that OLED screen. Can’t get enough of the intro cinematic =)

    Additionally each character plays uniquely and the seiyuu (VAs) give each character personality. Awesome game. Online pass is the only negative in an otherwise flawless game.
