imageMarvelousAQL released Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus and it looks like the Dynasty Warriors style Vita game has sold pretty well so far.


A magazine scan shows two characters will be added to Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus post launch. Players will be able to purchase Daidouji-senpai (pictured) and Rin at the end of March. Each character costs 600 yen ($6.50) or you can get both characters for 1,000 yen ($11).

    Forced to start over and play on my JP account. Stupid Sony and their one-account per card. Ugh.

    • PK212

      Can’t you just deactivate your current region account, use a JP account to DL the DLC, then switch back to your main account?

      • Ni

        No. You need to format your memory stick every time to switch accounts

        • British_Otaku

          Sounds like a bitch. So even though the Vita is region free, it has more barriers towards region swapping than the PS3, PSP and somewhat Wii/Gamecube (assuming you use homebrew or a freeloader). >_>

    • Curan_Altea

      They probably block it, but after starting the game on your JP account you could try replacing the save data with the files from your other account.

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        Would that work? I’m surprised Sony isn’t doing any “save data tied to one account” nonsense.

        • Curan_Altea

          I tried swapping over my Project Diva save data hoping they wouldn’t block save data from a different account.
          It turns out they do. That’ll teach me to pirate save data.

          • FitzpatrickPhillips

            Urghh and I kept playing today and found super rare panties too. Screwed my sony again.

          • ShadowDivz

            That statement sounds so wrong. xD
            It’s not like you NEED Daidouji right?

      • Edzo

        ive tried many different ways and have yet to successfully transfer a vita save to my japanese account. i don’t think it is possible

  • DLC? Guess its kinda expected, but I would have preferred it if they were unlockables like in senran kagura burst… Actually, scrap that. Daidoji was a bitch to unlock!! Ridiculously hard to use as well. As she was basically a walking tank.

    • kactaplb

      Never played the prequels, but 8 girls are locked for me atm. Hope the dlc characters aren’t too OP.

      • Have you seen episode 7 of the anime? Daidoji really IS that powerful. One move will strip your character and a super move follow up will likely kill you! Shame she doesn’t retain that power when you play as her… 6th sentai character syndrome. In burst, daidoji only walks everywhere and her attacks are incredibly strong but very very slow… Her clothing/armour is also really weak but she doesn’t need it! Rin is a whole other kettle of fish. Fast but with a very annoying launcher and even weaker armour than daidoji.

    That was quick.

  • RablaAndrews

    My moneeeeeyyy

    …and my account >_>

  • Zonic505

    Neat to see DLC coming soon (looking forward to footage), but damn, this means either importers can’t get it or have to deal with the hassle of switching memory cards & resetting the Vita to default settings to switch accounts.

    Oh well, hopefully the DLC will do well, especially with the game sales.

  • Yes, my two senpai made it in! =^_^=

  • Jake Deerberg

    Dude i’m bummed to be honest… I wanna import the game but it sucks knowing I won’t be able to get the DLC. And it’s Daidouji! I love characters that are like ‘Screw weapons I just want to punch you’.

    • fyi1191

      Sorry, but punching is not her style.

  • xAtKx

    Not sure if I should import this or not.

  • That’s some expensive DLC…

  • Locklear93

    …tengu geta? THOSE can’t be easy to run around in. And people complain about characters fighting in high heels…

    • Curan_Altea

      Props for knowing their name, and seriously. It’d take plenty of balance just to stand in those things let alone fight. I guess cool factor outweighs practicality.

      • Anesia Hunter

        daidouji is just awesome like that.

      • Locklear93

        Thanks. :) Momiji Inubashiri is my favorite Touhou character; I learned the term while reading about her.

    • All them badasses throughout the history of badasses wear them every now and then if not always. It’s an artifact of pride for banchous!

  • Anesia Hunter

    I was wondering what they were going to do about those two. I’m glad they’ll be available for this game.

  • Scan

  • Some call her Daidouji, I will always call her genderbent Jotaro.

  • Lester Paredes

    I’ll never get to play this game. And no, I don’t feel like importing it, because I don’t want to have to deal with all the different regions and PSN accounts and crap like that. Funny, though. I went from: this game looks stupid! To: this looks so ridiculously awesome! pretty quickly.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    This game would sell like hot caks in the UK and states *nose bleed*
