Now working with Cygames
Kenichiro Takaki, producer of the Senran Kagura series, has reportedly left his position at Japanese developer Marvelous. Takaki, known as the “huge boobs producer” by fans thanks to his work on the mature-themed Senran Kagura games, had been working with Marvelous for 13 years. The news of his departure comes via...
Things went a little over the top
Today saw an official livestream for the Senran Kagura series take place on YouTube, with details expected to be shared surrounding the upcoming Switch title, Peach Ball: Senran Kagura. Unfortunately for those watching the show, YouTube terminated proceedings before the stream reached its end. The stream...
"Is this a boss fight?"
It's fair to say that the Senran Kagura series is something of an acquired taste thanks to its large-chested protagonists and their various states of undress, but plenty of people are "into it", as is evidenced by the rather swift manner in which the franchise has made its way to Switch. Shinobi Refle -Senran...
"We have no news to share regarding a western release"
Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura launches in Japan today but developer Marvelous Games says that it has no current plans to release the title outside of Japan. Part of the titillating Senran Kagura series, Shinobi Refle makes use of the Switch's HD Rumble for various - ahem - tactile...
"I want to play pinball on a woman’s body"
Yesterday, we saw the first gameplay footage for Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura, the first entry in the long-running series for the Nintendo Switch. However, it wasn't the only Senran Kagura title to be revealed; the lid was also lifted on Peach Ball, a pinball game for Nintendo's console. While...
Watch at your own risk
A Senran Kagura-themed livestream has just taken place in Japan, and during the broadcast gameplay footage from the upcoming Switch entry was shown, as well as the game's opening anime. Dubbed Shinobi Refle -Senran Kagura-, the game lanches later this year in Japan. Perfectly Nintendo has captured some of the...
HD Rumble confirmed for... oh dear...
If you were like us glued to your screen in our live-blog, know that the Western versions of the latest Nintendo Direct omitted one very crucial fact: 'Senran Kagura' is coming to the Switch with HD Rumble used to simulate, erm... well, please watch the video where series producer Kenichiro Takaki explains the...
Will you be tempted to see what the fuss is about?
It's quite an understatement to say that the Senran Kagura series is controversial. While it could be argued that the actual gameplay is pretty solid, taking one look at the box art is enough to see what really gets copies flying off shelves. On one side, there are the people who appreciate it for...
Mediocre button mashing
Using sex appeal to sell games is nothing new in the industry, even to the point where the games can become questionable in their intention; SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson falls into this category. Its predecessor was a solid enough fighting game with themes that, shall we say, appeal to a particular demographic. Can the...
It's the Happy Boobs edition
Senran Kagura Burst proved to be quite a divisive title, with some claiming it was harmless titillation and others finding the content of the game to be derogatory to women. Things don't appear to have changed much with SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson and when we interviewed Producer Kenichirō Takaki at E3 this
North American launch "slightly later"
Tamsoft's Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson is coming to Europe and Australia on August 27th, publisher Marvelous has revealed. The fighting game features plenty of improvements over its forerunner, including pair battles, better visuals, local and online co-op and an enhanced dressing room. The game is hitting...
“I love games, I love girls, and I love sexy stuff”
The Senran Kagura series famously - and perhaps apocryphally - began life when its creator, Kenichirō Takaki, decided that the Nintendo 3DS' stereoscopic display was destined to display one thing over all else: breasts. Setting to work to fulfill his dream, Takaki-san produced two tales of...
"Nintendo has a responsibility to stop products of this kind"
Following the announcement that Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson is coming to the west, a columnist in the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet has attacked the game for its objectification of women. Journalist Kersin Alex - who reviews games for the newspaper - has stated that she has issues with...
Will you be man enough to pre-order the "Happy Boobs" Limited Edition?
Marvelous Europe is bringing the Tamsoft fighting game Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson to Europe and Australia this summer. Following on from the events of Senran Kagura Burst, this sequel will be distributed both digitally and physically in Europe, with Marvelous offering a range...
Should we boycott Senran Kagura Burst's balloon-breasted characters?
Long-time readers of Nintendo Life will be aware that we've given a fair amount of coverage to Senran Kagura Burst, a 3DS fighting game which recently launched in Europe amid a campaign which focused almost entirely on the title's bevy of busty female combatants. To be honest, I...
Just as European gamers are finally able to enjoy ninja-schoolgirl-cleavage-action with Senran Kagura Burst, Japan insists on reminding us how far ahead it is by opening the official Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson website. As far as in-game screenshots go it doesn't really show us anything we haven't already looked at, b
Racy subject matter helps niche fighter gain some sales
Senran Kagura Burst isn't your typical 3DS title — it features large-chested anime girls rather than rotund Italian plumbers — but it has gained quite a bit of attention ahead of its European release. We've seen saucy (and
Thank goodness for the eShop version
Senran Kagura Burst launches this week in Europe, both digitally on the 3DS eShop and in physical form. While North Americans still bristle with anger at the fact that they missed out on a boxed edition when it launched in that region last year, it least it means that they didn't have to endure the shame of...
Limited to 500 copies, comes with T-Shirt and lenticular poster
Senran Kagura Burst may have come to North America before Europe, but the latter is getting a physical and a pre-order bonus release — something which has annoyed some US players, as they had to make do with a digital launch only. As if to pile on the pain even further, it has today...
3D brawler is bursting out next month
Senran Kagura Burst might be seen by some individuals as a plague on gaming thanks to its cheap titillation and scantily-clad female fighters, but it's got just as many fans for those very same reasons — it's also a pretty decent game as well, as you'll know if you've already consulted our review. The...
Throwing stars, unfortunately, are not included
School can be boring sometimes. Let’s face it, it’s not the greatest thing in the world, but if Japanese Anime and Manga is anything to go off, school is the best place to be. You get to learn how to become a samurai that hunts down evil spirits, or a magician who tracks down spells to undo an...
Digital release coming a day earlier
If you're a fan of fighting games which feature buxom girls who lose their clothes during combat, then you'll want to sit up and take note of this news. MarvelousAQL has confirmed that Senran Kagura Burst will be coming to Europe this February in both physical and digital formats. A compilation of the first two...
Bursting out all over
As we all know, Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson is coming to the 3DS in Japan later this year, and promises to bring more of the same schoolgirl-on-schoolgirl combat action which made Senran Kagura Burst so appealing. The screens show off the game's new locations and characters, as well as the full-3D boss battles. Oh, and...
Best of the breast
It has been revealed in the latest issue of Famitsu that Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson is currently in development for the 3DS and will be hitting Japanese store shelves in August. Like Senran Kagura Burst, the game will be a side-scrolling fighter packed with scantly-clad, large-chested female combatants. Burst developer Tamsoft...
