The Senran Kagura series is rife with hilarious, sometimes perverse situations, and that’s what makes it so much fun. Yes, most of the games feature scantily-clad girls, but they’re a lot more than that. There’s a Senran Kagura game for just about any taste, sexy versions of games like even Splatoon, in the case of Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash, and Dynasty Warriors-like Senran Kagura: Estival Versus. It’s a collection of tongue-in-cheek dirty jokes and genuinely entertaining gameplay with your favorite character from the series, so it’s great news that today several announcements were made, including new games and even a port coming down the line, even Switch versions for all you Senran Kagura fans looking to bring the fun to a Nintendo console.
As far as the Switch releases go, Peach Ball: Senran Kagura was announced today for Switch, Marvelous’ sexy taken on pinball, with HD Rumble support, silly costumes, and your Senran Kagura mainstays. Obviously the Switch is an excellent system for a pinball game, and though there weren’t many new details about the upcoming game, not even a possible release date, it’s good to see another new game type being represented that’s branching out even further.
Then there’s Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura, which we already knew about, which is releasing on the Switch via the Nintendo eShop in Japan later this year. It will allow players to interact with character Asuka, who you’ll massage and touch as part of the narrative. She ends help “finding herself,” as the game insinuates, so you’re obviously meant to get to know Asuka a little better than you normally would as she’s more distressed than usual. She can appear in several different outfits as well, depending your preference.
Next up in the coming lineup is Senran Kagura Burst Re: Newal, a remake of the original Senran Kagura Burst, and it’s releasing on PlayStation 4 on february 22, 2018 in Japan. Previously the game was relegated to side-scrolling action on Nintendo 3DS but it’ll be opened up into a 3D adventure this time around. It also comes with a remake of the first Senran Kagura game, Senran Kagura: Skirting Shadows. Hopefully this means we’ll also get a western release.
Lastly, Shinobi Master Senran Kagura: New Link is a new mobile game coming to iOS and Android that’ll include 20 characters at launch with additional characters coming at a later date, including those from all four different ninja academies. You’ll be tasked with training each character become the very best shin obi they can. Preregistration for Japanese players is available right now, but unfortunately we don’t have word on a Western edition just yet.
There’s a massive amount of Senran Kagura coming your way, so get ready for an awesome fall and early 2018 if you’re a fan.
