Originally given a winter 2015 release window, XSEED and Marvelous Europe have confirmed that Senran Kagura Estival Versus will now be available on March 15 in North America and March 18 in Europe for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
If you want to watch the above launch trailer, keep in mind that it’s very NSFW.
In North America, the limited Endless Summer physical release will cost $59.99 for PS4 and $49.99 for PS Vita, and includes a 108-page art book packed 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 the six factions of “buxom beauties” each in two distinct poses, and a two-disc soundtrack with 70 total tracks. The digital version, meanwhile, will be priced at $49.99 for PS4 and $39.99 for PS Vita.
In Europe, you can pre-order various Limited Editions for both systems from Marvelous Europe’s website.
Here’s the description and features for Senran Kagura Estival Versus:
In SENRAN KAGURA ESTIVAL VERSUS, our sexy Shinobi find themselves suddenly transported to an idyllic island. The heroines soon realise there’s more to this paradise than sunshine and sandy beaches when the different schools end up involved in a fighting festival that will test their strength and wits. The winner will uncover the innermost secrets of Shinobi lore, attaining the coveted rank of Kagura – truly the highest honour that can be bestowed on a fighter. In the process, rivalries will resurface, wounds will reopen and convictions will be tested.
Gameplay in SENRAN KAGURA ESTIVAL VERSUS cranks everything fans love about the series up to 11. In true SENRAN KAGURA fashion, every character has a unique Shinobi Transformation that increases her power and grants her different abilities. Additionally, players can unleash devastating special moves and use advanced techniques, like Aerial Raves and Wall Runs, to dominate the opposition. Some of the fights may even culminate in a Creative Finisher if characters are standing on the right spot – and these finishing moves show the girls in ways that you’ve never seen before!
- A brawl for the ages! Prepare for non-stop action with dozens of characters on screen at the same time, over-the-top special moves and clothes-clearing combos!
- A pleasure for the senses! State-of-the-art graphics show all the interesting details on the carefully rendered characters and environments.
- Upgraded Dressing Room! Choose the clothing and accessories of up to five characters in PlayStation 4 and three in PlayStation Vita. Then, compose your own scenes by changing the poses, the background and other details!
- Refreshing multiplayer experience! Test your skills online in unique modes such as “Capture the Bra” or “Queen of the Hills”.
You’ll also find over two dozen playable characters, online matches that support up to 10 players on PS4 and up to four players on PS Vita, and a “story that’s equal parts sexy and shocking, serious and scandalous, busty and bouncy.”
We have a review of the PS4 version from last year.
