Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus

Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus and Senran Kagura: Bon Appetit are coming to Europe and Australia, Marvelous Europe announced.

Both will be distributed as digital downloads on the PlayStation Store later this year.

“We were surprised and delighted that the Senran Kagura series has been so well received in Europe,” series producer Kenichiro Takaki said. “ The team is very excited that these new titles will soon be released for the rest of the world to enjoy.”

Find more details on each game below.

Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus

Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus is cut from the same cloth as its predecessor, Senran Kagura: Burst, a surprise hit on 3DS earlier this year, but raises the bar in every way imaginable. From art style to story, combat mechanics to graphics, everything is bigger and better in Shinovi Versus. With ridiculous mid-air combos, over-the-top humour, garments that explode when characters take damage and Secret Ninja Art techniques, Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus is a unique, and uniquely Japanese, experience.

Fans of the series will take control of twenty shinobi fighters from four different ninja academies – the Hanzō National Academy, the Homura Crimson Squad, the Gessen Girls’ Academy and the Hejibo Clandestine Girls’ Academy. The story can be played from the perspective of each academy with the aid of the original Japanese voice track and lovingly localised English subtitles. Up to four players can battle online to determine the ultimate Shinobi.

Senran Kagura: Bon Appetit!

Senran Kagura: Bon Appetit! sees the girls battle it out in a cooking competition held by Master Hanzō, with the grand prize for winning the contest being a magical ninja scroll.

Each of the characters has their own personal motivation to enter and win the competition, and these stories are told over five separate ‘cooking battles’ against other characters. The storyline for each character is typical of other titles in the franchise, with plenty of offbeat humour and over the top cutscenes.
