Famitsu has the scoop on the Secret Standing Snake school girls, which has two "big sister" ninja types. Miyabi and Imu are much older than the average ninja in Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus. Both characters were involved in an accident that left Miyabi without her memories and Imu hospitalized for a year.

  • Miyabi and Murasaki are my favs here, although I like all of ’em~
    Ryona seems to be one crazy girl, I don’t mind at all, lol.

  • Spectacularity

    I love all of them already. 

  • KingRuff

    Ryona: Likes to show off her bust and tease others.
    Orders for this just skyrocketed.

    • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

      I’m surprised Sony didn’t think of this themselves, if your system is near death, release games with boobies. It’s Japan ffs~.

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Well, Sony must also maintain their image there.^_^ If they release those kind of games, imagine what soccer mom response there.T_T

        Even Code of Princess can get quite a low review score just because the game had side boobs there.T_T

      • Tianyu Wei

         They probably “did” hand some money to the devs to bring the game to VITA :D

        Dynasty Warriors games sell like hot cakes. Anime girls with big boobs sell like hot cakes. And when you combine the two?! The universe explodes!

  • Loving the new women

  • Tianyu Wei

    WOW… those graphics… looks so good… 

    • xavier axol

      really? i mean, it looks great but compare to other vita games it’s not that amazing. what interest me the most it’s the characters (specially the bounciness), gameplay, and how this game is taylor for the vita (seen how this game is a spinoff from the game that started on the 3ds). oh! and did i mention how i like the bouciness!?, i’m looking forward to touching my vita screen (both front and back).

      • Tianyu Wei

         At least the character models… It seem to used an enhanced 3D Custom Girls engine. A lot more anti-aliasing and better shading and shadows than the stock 3D Custom Girls.

        • xavier axol

          you might be right, i was basing my comment from the video they released and may be i wasn’t pay attention.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Miyabi  AND Murasaki  …………… <3

  • Muffum

    So why is Miyabi’s amnesia such a major character trait/plot point that it warrants mentioning? If Imu was such a close friend, in the same accident, and DIDN’T lose her memory, wouldn’t she just be able to recount everything to Miyabi, and bam, plot resolved?

    This is assuming, of course, the amnesia is just used for a “Who am I? What was I doing?” type plot. If it’s taken in a completely different direction, we’ll just have to see how it unfolds.

    • Even if Imu does tell her what happened, it doesn’t mean that Miyabi will actually remember herself.

    • $3587643

       Thanks for the links. These games deserve to be localized.

    • Hinataharem

      It was about time you started showing up here :D

    • Tianyu Wei

      I dont’ think localization is really necessary if it continues on the VITA since it’s region free… these games aren’t even dialogue heavy… it’s fan service + action… easily enjoyable if you watched enough Anime and learned a phrase or two like “baka” “ecchI” etc.

      The only thing you are gonna get in Localization is a butchered censored version I can guarantee it 100%. And then you guys are gonna cry foul.

  • Shadowman

    They look so awesome!!

  • British_Otaku

    So there are four schools now…
    20 playable characters between them.


    Shame, I probably won’t get to see any of them in the coming anime.
    On topic, I haven’t got a Vita… I may be preordering this game.
    Feels a bit more rational to type things like that when the system is region free.

  • Come to me new Senran Kagura girls, come to me lol

    (Localization please)

    Also Ryona, Ryobi & Murasaki here =^_^=

  • so spice :)

  • xavier axol

    Oh how i love gravity and bounciness, “’cause boobies just isn’t enough”. my friend is right.

  • konsama

    Har, i  was right they were 2 sided handguns xP. But… the first two girls have too much breast for my like. ._.

    • KingRuff

       There seems to be a logical impossibility in your sentence. I don’t think I need to explain further on what it is.

      • konsama

        Of course, two sided handguns are impossible to use unless you have a strong pinkie.


        • Darkrise

          I think your missing the point, “too much breast”.

          • konsama

            Another winner!

        • Tianyu Wei

           yea lol… i think you missed the point “too much breast”

          • konsama

            Sort of slow aren’t ya.

    • s07195

      You do know that they are actually only in the ‘middle’ category comparing to some of the others introduced in this article right?

      I like the design of the first two + Ryobi but I don’t have a Vita or 3DS yet (saving up for a PS3) so I haven’t tried the series yet.

  • raymk

    Love Murasaki and Ryobi designs the most.  Most def going to main the both of them.

  • Anesia Hunter

    anybody else think the older girls are gonna get low amounts of votes in the japanese popularity polls? (that happened to suzune, haruka and daidoji.)

    • Tianyu Wei

       always happens in any sort of popularity poll… Anime, Games, characters, etc.

  • DarthSithZero

    Sometimes I don’t understood why they teases us with games that will never be able to play

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      “will never be able to play”

      YOu never heard word import there?

      • Christopher Nunes

        It’s more along the lines of playing a localized version of this… usually you don’t get away with such games in the US, let alone niche titles like this one. There are exceptions but in today’s market if it isn’t a big time name of a long-lasting series it has little chance of coming over and even still doesn’t guarantee the game will be localized.  

        • Tianyu Wei

           not entirely true. We have a lot of niche titles even on PSP from GUST/NIS/CH/IF. The only thing in consideration is Return vs Cost. Usually these niche game are low cost, so even if it doesn’t sell blockbuster, it’ll still be “worthwhile” to test the water and gather a fan base. Though it does require a lot of work.

          Especially Risque titles like this usually get butchered in Localization. It’s usually ESRB/Fear of Public Backlash that stops this type of games from coming over. This game is easily ESRB M, and maybe even AO if there are a lot of “moralists” on the review board.

  • Senran Kagura: Where even the “flat one” has a huge rack!

  • win

     Anyone want to buy a VITA to play this game ? I’m thinking about it now.

    • HassanJamal

       You wont regret it :) I havent regretted mine since buying it!

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    All the characters looks nice especially Ryobi there.^_^ Chest size complex? To think that in RL her boobs would be what we called perfect size there lol.^_^

  • AnimusVox

    They have really weird breasts…

  • Taylor Greene

    Ryobi. Brunette with a rifle. I think I’m in love.

  • Murasaki. We need to have a nice, long chat.

  • Demeanor

    LOL @ the 1.5m-1.6m avg height and 90-100 avg boobiness XD

  • Darkrise

    I think I love Murasaki and Ryobi already. 

  • Göran Isacson

    … I’m getting the feeling that what they mean by “exact opposite” isn’t the size of the boobage, but the ATTITUDE they have towards it. One flaunts it, the other hides it.

    If not, I am going to flip so many tables.
