While you wait for Peach Beach Splash, make sure to read our interview with Producer Kenichiro Takaki:
PlayStation LifeStyle: Traditionally the series has always been action games, why switch to a third-person shooter?
Kenichiro Takaki [via translator]: There are two main reasons. First is that third-person shooter seemed like a genre that was well suited for the PS4. We had been doing PS4 and Vita titles up until now, but we wanted to do a title that was specifically for consoles. The other reason is that over the years, Senran Kagura has picked up more and more fans overseas. We’ve seen that audience grow, so we wanted to pick a genre that would have a worldwide appeal and maybe bring in more fans worldwide and expand the audience that way.
PSLS: What unique gameplay features differentiate [Peach Beach Splash] from a standard third-person shooter?
KT: The way it controls is very similar to a usual TPS, so people familiar with the genre will be able to pick it right up and understand it. The main feature that separates it is that we’re not using real guns, but water guns. So there’s a very playful attitude, and the way to defeat enemies is not to kill them but to soak them with water.
