XSEED Games has announced today that Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash is getting some new content in the form of some brand new competitors. According to the developers, Rinka and Ranka, two characters from Valkyrie Drive -Bhikkhuni-, join the game as DLC. Both characters will also receive New Paradise Swimsuits “Otohime” and “Lorelei” as well as other accessories. Players can purchase the items separately or get them all with the Valkyrie Drive -Bhikkhuni- Collaboration Set for $9.99.
In addition to the new characters, the latest patch for Peach Beach Splash includes a new VR function that offers fans their first opportunity to get up close and personal with any of the 30+ characters in the game. Two modes are also included in the patch, Dressing Room: Character Viewer and Diorama, both of which allow players to use their PSVR headset to check out the characters in the game in various settings.
For more information on Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash, make sure to check out our review of the game. Here’s what Tyler thought:
It’s sort of amazing that they went there, and I’m sure someone will pontificate about how this is really just a moral quandary that epitomizes the fact that players have the choice whether or not they choose to grope these virtual women, but it’s ultimately just really weird. I’m not exactly sure what the end goal is for this mode. Is it to erotically excite players? If so, it even fails there. I can’t speak for everyone’s kinks, but I can’t say that seeing a girl’s comically large breasts stretched out like silly putty got me going. Either way, this mode can be safely ignored despite the inherent creepiness that comes with a groping command, and players can just dress-up the characters if they want (I gave Minori a really cute cat tail!). It just feels unnecessary for a game that has more to offer players, but hey, at least you can practice playing bongos.
Qualms aside, if you can look passed the risqué nature of Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash you’ll find an enjoyable shooter that can be a lot of fun in multiplayer. Sure, it might not be able to compete with the likes of Titanfall 2 in terms of gunplay, but I’ve never seen any bikini tops come undone in Titanfall either. Peach Beach Splash certainly has something unique to offer, and while all of its ideas might not be ace, you have to respect the developers for committing to an idea and simply going for it.
Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash is available now.
