The next game to release in the Senran Kagura is a third-person shooter called Peach Beach Splash. To learn more about it, check out our Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash interview with Producer Kenichiro Takaki. Here’s a brief snippet from it:
PSLS: What was most challenging about developing a third-person shooter?
KT: In the games, the girls’ looks and breasts are big parts of the game. In a TPS we’re always looking at the girls from behind, so we had to think about places where we could show the girls from the front. That way players get to see them.
To give you a more serious answer, since the TPS genre is still pretty rare in Japan we really wanted to make sure that the game was easy to jump in and play for the Japanese players. That way it’s good for new players.
PSLS: The characters look very mobile in the game, and they can basically use jetpacks. Is it difficult to design levels with verticality in mind?
KT: It was definitely difficult to take the verticality in account when designing the levels, but the Senran Kagura series up to now has always been about being able to fight very quickly. So, I wanted to have that sense of speed continue in this game as well by giving the girls the water dash, boosts and high jumps. It allows the game to be played fast and frenetically.
Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal releases February 22, 2018 for PlayStation 4 in Japan. North American and European releases for the remake are not yet confirmed. We’ll have more on the action game as its 2018 release approaches.
