Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus Goodies Bundled With Dengeki PlayStation

By Spencer . February 6, 2013 . 2:20pm

kagura1Dengeki PlayStation must love Senran Kagura. The magazine is going to do a 64 page feature with character illustrations and an interview about the bursting boobs ninja series leading up to the release of Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus.


This special Senran Kagura issue includes a couple of collectables. You get a screen cleaner that plugs into an earphone jack with Yumi’s sexy beam attack, a clear folder with… um the girls undressing, an underwear omikuji DLC coin, and a Yumi card for Samurai & Dragons. Sega’s crossover game will add Senran Kagura and Soul Sacrifice characters to a card game that already has Sonic the Hedgehog and Bayonetta.


The issue goes on sale on February 28, the same day Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus comes out.

    Wow— is this series seriously that popular already? I just thought it was neat and somewhat niche as it’s clearly targeting an audience that,as far as I was aware, is viewed in a generally negative light.
    Clearly there’s something very special about this series, and boy can I not wait to get my hands on Shinovi.

    • Zhizn Snake

      I gathered that most of the people who played the original game actually found it to be fun and that it had good gameplay, regardless of it’s amount of fanservice, so that might have helped XD

  • Go2hell66

    64 pages!?!?

    • almostautumn

      If only 5 more…

  • Strifeking

    American logic games like god of war are completely fine even with all the blood and gore yet when they see this game they think DEMON SEED!!!! and make it hard to localize

    • Zhizn Snake

      not to mention that GoWs also have (arguably unnecessary) nudity and sex scenes too…

      • Strifeking

        So so so very true

      • Suicunesol

        The girls in Senran Kagura are underage. That makes all the difference.

        • ronin4life

          This is true.
          They also aren’t real… just like the GoW girls. Which have no given age, and could also technically be underaged given the time period GoW takes place.

          • Suicunesol

            Whether they’re real or not is irrelevant. It is the idea and concept of underage girls being violently stripped of their clothing (and most importantly in a totally perverted way) that is offensive. I think it’s apparent that real girls weren’t harmed during the making of the games, so that’s not the issue.

            Also, the GoW girls could be underage, but that is unlikely given their thoroughly mature appearances.

          • ronin4life

            And these girls don’t appear that way?(no, the anime faces don’ count as that is an art style choice.)

            Remember, Ayane from DOA and Ninja Gaiden is 14. Kasumi is 16-17… but when brought to the USA their ages were omitted.(which is why the fact they aren’t real can matter.)

            …wait, what are we arguing(discussing I mean) about anyway? The games content or its content relative to its localization chances? I Am so sleepy… >.>

          • mirumu

            That argument is overly simplistic though because there’s plenty of concepts in American games, or games released in America, that are extremely offensive. That even a concept like gruesomely murdering someone can be somehow justified as being less offensive than situations were people don’t die says a lot about how far our human brains will go to justify our culturally conditioned view at times.

            I think the reality is that the things that are both offensive and socially unacceptable in games are just different for each country. They stem more from historical factors than any true measure of right and wrong. I wouldn’t say people should or shouldn’t be offended by these things, but not recognising the part our upbringing plays in our views prevents us from actually thinking about these problems and improving the situation (in whatever way that may be).

          • almostautumn

            That bit in the middle is the key; “things offensive and unnacceptable differ for each country.” Japan has a history in which sexuality is openly explored and considered even a facet of one’s health, while in the west, whether Eu or NA, the foundations bear the molding of Church, be it Protestant, Catholic, whatever, where sex has the stigma, outside of being something to be held in private, of being negative or “wrong.” This retains itself in a variety of ways, and I think that the issue of this being localized hardly has anything to do with the girls being “underage” (if they wanted to, they can just write they’re all 21, you know), but rather that the overall experience bears consistently stimulating, sexual situations, which is just considered a “no-no” in the west. It doesn’t matter that GoW slipped by with its mini-game or that some games like Heavy Rain/Dragon Age have sex cutscenes; this is clearly a different package as the overall aesthetic, art-design, and gameplay itself play into a feature that sends off alarms in the western consensus.

            School uniforms makes all the difference.

    • NeoAthanasius

      It’s not Americans saying this game is “demon seed” that has kept these games from coming over. Obviously those who localize niche games don’t think this game would be a good return on their investment. Maybe we will see this game, maybe we won’t. Most people wouldn’t care about a beat-em-up with or without breasts. I don’t remember anyone making a stink about Code of Princess. Although maybe I just missed it.

      If it was only because of American prudishness, why haven’t we seen a version released in Europe yet?

    • Adol Christin

      I love these games and feel your pain but what are saying it WRONG. Blood, gore, breasts etc have nothing to with it not getting localized. Its a niche game, with a very limited market. Just cause you and I and other fellow Japanese game fans are willing to buy it doesn’t justify the cost and effort of localizing it.

  • Tomcatters79

    This game is the real only reason for what i buyed a PS VITA

  • dragoon_slayer12

    I’m still hoping this and burst get localized. I watched the first 4 episodes and fell in love with the characters and the lore. The “unnecessary nudity” actually makes sense. Plus I like the X(anime) barrier implementation

  • ZetaSiren

    Better collect the dragon balls and wish for shenron to localize this game

  • Adol Christin

    I would give anything for these games to be localized without hassle. But blaming it on stupid reasons like “DEMON SEED” is not helping but adding to the problem.

    The reason these games are not localized are cause its a niche market. Just cause a handful of people on net forums are willing to pay any price doesn’t mean everyone will. You have no idea what it takes to release niche Japanese games here. Why do think Falcom games like Ys and Legend of Heroes toke such a long time to come. Even right now, we are like 4/5 games behind in the LOH series.

    Also if you haven’t noticed the US gov are going after all violent games, whether they are American, European, Asian.
