Pocchari Valkyrie, A New Game From The Makers Of Senran Kagura

By Spencer . October 22, 2013 . 3:02am

pocchariSenran Kagura maker Marvelous AQL is working on a game called Pocchari Valkyrie, which was leaked along with this logo. We heard this title is currently in development, but Marvelous AQL has not announced the game yet.


"Pocchari" is Japanese slang for chubby so take a guess what this might be for…

    Tits are Yggdrasil, ass is Valhalla.

  • TheExile285

    So Chubby Valkyrie? Lol

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      I will die so hard if he draws a chubby girl omg omg

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        Most of the Senran girls are pretty chubby and thick. This wouldn’t be much different.

        • Göran Isacson

          Can’t say I agree. This here is a link to the main cast, and these girls?


          These girls ain’t chubby in any definition of the word. If the girls here are going to be chubby, they’re definitely not gonna look like the Senran Kagura girls.

          • FitzpatrickPhillips

            That pic kind of proves my point. Haruka and Yomi especially are pretty Plump. Chubby =/= fat, especially in anime form. Hibari is too, although that’s more of a canon thing.

          • Göran Isacson

            … But these girls aren’t even chubby OR plump. Curvy yes, but I have never heard anyone call a curvy woman chubby before.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            I’d at least say that they are good sized girls.

          • ZekeFreek

            I think he’s saying they just aren’t the typical thinness level of most anime girls.

            They aren’t “chubby” but they have a lot more meat on their bones than most.

          • Göran Isacson

            Huh. I guess that could explain it. I am not a native english speaker, but every definition of the word chubby I’ve seen before simply does not apply to the Senran Kagura girls.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            Ii get what you mean but i think by chubby it wouldn’t just include their hips or breast

          • ZekeFreek

            dem thighs are also pretty thick by anime standards.

          • Kumiko Akimoto
  • cyberkinghardy

    Maybe the heroines are chubby, but when they transform, they become sexy. And when hit by magic, their clothes ripped. More clothes removed, the more their power increase.
    —ahhh I guess I’m watching too much anime

    • leingod

      Nah, that sounds about right when talking about the Senran Kagura devs.

      • British_Otaku

        It isn’t necessarily Tamsoft developing this or Takaki involved in the project. Marvelous AQL have also published a number of Suda51 games as well, you wouldn’t say this is from the makers of No More Heroes and Killer7 yet.

        That said, it seems quite reasonable given their record, though I wouldn’t mind more body types in the next game from them.

        • leingod

          Indeed. I love gigantic cups as much as the next guy, but I also like other sizes. Heck, I like them all actually… each has its own charm.

          (I bet that’s what you were talking about :P)

          • British_Otaku

            Spot on for the most part, but I was more focused on the muscular build of the characters. I’m a little disappointed that Daidouji in Senran Kagura doesn’t have those raw abs in another of her three game appearances, even on the Vita.

            I suppose, the voice is still hardcore and she fights like a brawler, however the anime cared about her abs and NPCs that you beat up in Burst happen to have them. >_>

          • leingod

            Oh, that. I haven’t played as Daidouji but I hope to do so if they ever localize Shinovi Versus :)

            I know she’s a bancho-type character though.

          • British_Otaku

            Daidouji is playable in every single Senran Kagura game, but is a DLC character in Versus but maybe you meant that you don’t have a 3DS and are waiting for the Vita’s SK. I assume even in that game, she can dominate the end game without leveling up. >_>

            I don’t know what you mean by Bancho-type. Maybe you mean like Kenka Bancho that I haven’t played?

          • leingod

            I own a 3DS, but the 3DS isn’t region-free… so I’m waiting for the US release of Burst. And I also own the japanese version of Shinovi Versus, but I’d totally get it again if XSEED localizes it.

            And well, Banchos are kind of school tough guys in Japan… Daidouji dresses like them.

          • British_Otaku

            I see. I assume Jotaro from JoJo Part 3 is one of them as well along with Batsu from Rival Schools and Bahn from Fighting Vipers.


            Thanks for the clarification on what you have as well, is there is reason why you didn’t buy the Daidouji (and/or Rin) DLC then? I suppose you already have 20 characters right off the bat.

          • leingod

            Exactly, although Daigo is more the Bancho type than Batsu (in Rival Schools).

            I didn’t get the Daidouji DLC because I don’t have a japanese PSN account… I do plan on getting it if the game gets localized, though.

            And no, not all characters are unlocked from the get-go, you have to play through story mode to unlock some of them.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      No maybe it’s the heroines are chubby and when they transform they stay chubby and sexy

  • Is that a donut or a round pretzel dipped in chocolate? Or a cookie? Or a combination of all of the above? …dammit I’m hungry.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Ohhh yeeeahhhh sannnn

  • GHAmer

    yeah they’re chubby, in the special part. LOL

  • Aristides

    A chubby plot perhaps?

  • ronin4life

    It will be an angel work out simulator. You must coach a wide variety of Angels back to physical fitness and take them to dungeonsor something.

    Love Plus + Nintendogs + EO + any simulation game.


    • British_Otaku

      The dungeon stuff sounds tacked on as hell, but I would buy that.

      • ronin4life

        Really? Hmm…

        Ok, I can Fix this!! 0[]0//

        The dungeons are randomly generated, and story wise are test fields to judge your angels progress. Filled with demons that start out unhealthy but in later levels have super fit ripped demon athelets. Healing and buff items can *gasp* make your angels unfit if used too much(based on sweets and junk food), so item management is vital. Traps and obstacles can impede progress, and are gymnastic/athletic-obstacle course themed. Each boss is a demon health instructor/gym instructor whose powers are based on one of the 7 deadly sins… or something.

        And maybe there will be bikini dlc. Maybe.

        • British_Otaku

          I’m going to be shattered with the project if it turns out to be a mobile game (of course) or doesn’t touch on these brilliant ideas.

          Item management being done in such a way seems very interesting and matches with the world the game is trying to create.

          Great job, Ronin.

          • ronin4life

            OH HO HO.


            Thank you.

    • ZekeFreek

      So what? Like Guided Fate Paradox after Fat Tuesday?

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      Or it could be training various chubby animal girls for various things and reasons

  • Genjo

    i believe has to do with food? because in back ground there’s fork and knife lol

  • MAQL published Senran Kagura, but Tamsoft developed it. If it’s in the hands of Kenchiro Taka it’s going to be great. That said you can’t go wrong with chubby Valkyries.

  • This already seems like it’s gonna be a fun game lol

  • Flandre Scarlet

    There is a donut in the logo oh god what is this

  • ZekeFreek

    It should be noted, our “chubby” and Japan’s “chubby” are totally different chubbies.

    • Mister_Nep

      Can you elaborate?

      • ZekeFreek

        O.o I need to? What’s considered chubby over there would be kinda normal over here.

        • Mister_Nep

          Oh. I thought you were implying the Japanese definition of the word had an extra connotation to it or something.

        • lozffvii

          What’s considered kinda normal over there would be considered chubby everywhere else.
          Not very clear, but my ‘there’ is the same as your ‘here’.
          I’m making an ‘Americans are fat’ joke, but not very well.

    Taking a page out of CAVE’s playbook, good stuff.
