First Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus Screens Might Not Be Safe For Work

By Spencer . October 1, 2012 . 1:38am


Marvelous AQL released a few screenshots of Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus, a PlayStation Vita game from Half-Minute Hero producer Kenichiro Takaki. Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus adds new characters and has different gameplay compared to the Nintendo 3DS games.


There’s that full costume break system too, which is why these screens fall into the possibly NSFW folder. Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus comes out on February 28 in Japan. Siliconera will have more information about the Vita game later this week.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    There’s gotta be at least some places where this is safe for work

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World


    • Shadowman

      Back of the building?

    • Darkrise

      Under the desk. =P

    • SirTeffy

       Sure, if you work at an adult toy store.

  • Go2hell66

    NSFW? doesn’t that depend on the kind of work you do :p

  • HassanJamal

    Whats the different gameplay part?

    • drproton

       Well it looks like it uses a 3D camera, where the 3DS games are side-scrolling beat-em-ups.

      • HassanJamal

         Ah, so its gonna be a 3D beat em up? Sweet :D

  • XypherCode

    So this might be some kind of Musou-style action game? Can’t wait to pre-order this. :)

  • Can’t wait. Can we also get the 3DS ver… please?

  • omeganeko

    My vita is drooling

    • Shiki

      And my mouth , too :D

  • d19xx

    I promised myself never to import again… Looks like I’m going to break that with this game…

  • Ahhh so i was right about the new characters.  Looking good

  • “Starts looking at article in class”

    Me: What do you mean NSFW? This looks perfectly fine to look at anywh………..

    “Scrolls down towards bottom not noticing professor walking around class”

    Me: O_O! I, uh, well you see…….. This is exactly what it looks like.

    “Kicked out of class for the day” =P

    Game looks really good though. I really hope there is a localization on the horizon.

  • AndyFe

     Looks like a fun, in more ways than one.

  • jedah66

    If you said it was a 3ds game I would have believed it. The graphics look just like the 3ds senran kagura

  • 21603

    Thank you Sony for believing in region free gaming.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    So pretty much it’s gonna play like those Musou/Sengoku Basara portable games but with anime girls with gigantic… gauntlets. Sweet.

    Kinda hope the 3DS games would be brought over, too. Everyone loves a good sidescrolling beat’em up. Though I do wonder if this will tie in with the other games in some way, or be a separate entity altogether.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Dunno anything about the new characters so I don’t really care about them as much as I do the old ones. I want to see Hibari and Katsura in the new graphic style!

    I really wanna continue their stories, as I really liked their characertiation in Senran Kagura Burst.

  • SolidusSnake

    I like boobs

    • Zeromus321

      Me too. 

  • raitouniverse

    Yup, pretty much a musou game, no buy

  • Love Sony for believing in Region-Free. As much as people bash on Sony’s business antiques, they have the decency of allowing choice when it comes to playing games that we wanted…. And it looks like a Musou game which is gonna be freakin awesome!

  • superdry

    I don’t have a Vita, but do I want the limited editions because the bundled figures are so cute (Asuka!!!!).  Not sure about gameplay since it looks to be 3d plane fighters – I prefer 2d plane, but will hold my opinion until gameplay footage is shown.

    Oh yea…boobs!

  • Z3

    With this, Gods Eater 2, Muramasa and Soul Sacrifice, I’m set to getting a Vita.

  • ThatAzure

    Don’t forget this one :P

    • Fryxell

      Obligatory shimapan. lol

  • Demeanor

    Aside from boobs and the fact that my body is totally ready XD I’m kinda skeptic about the musou approach, they’re not really known to be the best genre on the market… 
    I’m keeping my fingers crossed though, if the mechanics are good (please make the game HARD and technical, it could be the difference between disaster and success! They’re already so good at making things hard! XD ok I’ll shut up with the idiot jokes) 

    As for game modes I also see player vs player, so do we get Max Anarchy modes as well? Arena online battles, coop and competitive?

    Graphics-wise it’s not very impressive for the Vita’s potential, but if you enlarge the pics they are not bad, with good animation and fluidity the game could deliver, plus a certain handheld is already teaching us that graphics are not an absolute necessity to sell a good game (and many other series too).

    As a fan of anime-style games and a proud niche gamer I’m definitely gonna keep an eye on this. I’ll probably need both. XD

  • Moe Musou~
    Whoever picks up the series better bring out both, but this being importable I think Burst deserves higher priority if they can only pick one.

  • Spider-Man

    The only Vita games I own are Gravity Rush and Touch my Katamari.

    Looks like I’ll be getting;

    -Persona 4: Golden
    -Ragnarok Odyssey
    -Soul Sacrifice
    -Malicious Rebirth
    -Dragon’s Crown
    -Hatsune Miku Project Diva F
    -The Legend of Heroes: Zero no Kiseki Evolution
    -Ys 4 Celceta: Sea Of Trees 
    -Virtue’s Last Reward
    -Gods Eater 2
    -Zone Of The Enders HD Edition
    -Valhalla Knights 3
    -Phantasy Star Online 2
    -Muramasa: The Demon Blade

     …and now Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus. Such deliciousness. Can’t wait for gameplay trailers, and better screenshots. Unless most of these get localized, I have the option to import. Feelsgoodman. Enjoying this Vita support.

    • Shiki

      Thanks for reminding me what i’ll be getting in the future , gotta clean the shelves “running”

    • Doctor Nebula

      There’s like 6 good vita games coming out this month for NA, how to handle all this goodness.

      • Spider-Man

        My wallet is coughing up blood. I’m gonna need some help ASAP.

      • Finally Vita haters are going to stop with the whole “The Vita has no games” stupidity
