XSEED Games was excited to release the first home console release in the busty brawler series, SENRAN KAGURA ESTIVAL VERSUS, for PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation 4 in both digital and a limited “Endless Summer” physical formats. The limited edition will feature a 108-page art book full of artwork from the SENRAN KAGURA series, a randomly chosen set of ten 2.5″ by 3.5″ holographic “pin-up cards” featuring one of sex bevies of characters in two distinct poses, and a 2-disc soundtrack featuring 70 total tracks.
In addition, XSEED announced that it will provide players with a free update to the game that will include additional multiplayer game modes and combat features, such as the first rideable mech in the series, the Puppet Walkers. In addition, playable characters Rin and Daidoji, as well as various tweaks and balances across the board will be in this free update.
All DLC options from the game’s Japanese release will eventually arrive in the North American version of the game, except for the Japanese-exclusive playable characters from the Ikki Tousen series.
Kenichiro Takaki, series producer at Marvelous Inc., stated, “I’m eagerly awaiting Western fans’ reactions to experiencing SENRAN KAGURA on PlayStation 4 for the first time. I’m really impressed by the way in which the console enhances my beloved series—both SENRAN KAGURA fans and interested newcomers alike are in for a treat. That said, I feel that ESTIVAL VERSUS’ PlayStation Vita release is hands-down the series’ greatest handheld experience yet.”
Here’s a quick about, for those interested, courtesy of the official press release:
In SENRAN KAGURA ESTIVAL VERSUS, a mystical phenomenon transports the nubile ninjas of the titular series to a parallel dimension to face off against their rivals in a new kind of battle. In this strange world – which resembles a sunny, sandy island paradise – the girls are thrown for another loop as they encounter departed loved ones and ultimately have to decide if they can bear to part from them a second time.
With over two dozen playable characters, making this the biggest roster in the series’ history, SENRAN KAGURA ESTIVAL VERSUS boasts more moves, more story, more attitude, and more destruction online with matches that can support up to 10 players (PS4™system version only; “PSVita” system supports up to 4 players). All of the series’ previous Shinobi girls return with a host of upgraded moves to master, and new playable characters offer more challenges to conquer, along with a story that’s equal parts sexy and shocking, serious and scandalous, busty and bouncy.
