First Screenshots Of Dekamori Senran Kagura Are Here

By Ishaan . January 8, 2014 . 4:30pm

During last night’s Senran Kagura stream, we also got a look at the spinoff cooking and rhythm title, Dekamori Senran Kagura. While the teaser didn’t share any gameplay details, this week’s Famitsu shows that it’s a game where you can control the lady ninjas cooking in a rhythm game.

 

Your goal is to to defeat opponents by making bigger mounds of food to score more points, which can be done by matching the rhythm and pressing the buttons. Missing will cause your character’s clothing to tear off. I’m not exactly sure how that works, but hey, it’s Senran Kagura.

 

Dekamori Senran Kagura will be coming out for PlayStation Vita on March 20th. Meanwhile, Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson is scheduled for release on August 7th for Nintendo 3DS.

    The game where everyone will be stuck on stage one forever. kekeke

  • TheExile285
    • RedSuisei

      So basically, a battle is divided into three rounds. After every round, Hanzo will do some tasting, and the reaction he gets from the food will tear the loser’s clothes. For the third round, hanzo will do some kind of… yakitate japan-like reaction, which will completely tear the loser’s clothes.

      At least that’s what I got from the video.

        apparently there is also that stuff mentioned in wyrdwad’s post above

        Iron Chef, with boobs

    • Demeanor

      A few personal thoughts (more like possible weak points I’m seeing):
      - it’s basically a “strip rhythm game”, so the cooking action replaces the dancing and singing I could find in a Miku game, say; it does look a bit dull…
      - in a rhythm game you need to have good songs, is this going to cut it with these kinds of tunes? On the other hand, if the button presses are independent from the background music, this becomes a… music game without music or something, only relying on visual reflexes? No split second decisions either? (à-la-575)
      - aren’t the stripping scenes perfectly identical to Shinovi Versus?
      - is Takaki cosplaying as something? XD Pretty distinctive outfit…
      - if this game includes online multiplayer, it could get pretty fun; suppose we get to create-our-kunoichi, or heavily customize the standard characters, having battles online to strip your competition would add some reward to the match XD ahah the Takaki waves are reaching to me, I must have read too many articles about SK today XD
      - this kind of game also sort of kills another charm of this series, the cool ninja moves like Katsuragi’s wind dragons and the like, I don’t think they’d have the chance to use them in a cook-off (maybe the shinobi tenshin?).

  • Lilith

    Finally a game where I can look forward to losing.

    • TheGioG

      Goddamn, is Katsuragi gonna take her sweet ass time getting the poultry made in THIS kitchen.

      …Y’know, because chicken breasts…

    • Zak Ledward

      Play Monmusu Quest, then come back and tell us a tale

      • Duo Maxwell

        You may not believe me, but roughly 90% of the battles, I just want to win as soon as possible. I don’t look forward to lose to those monstrous creatures.

        • Zak Ledward

          W-WHAT!? B-But, if you don’t lose, Loli Vampire and her band of Lolis will be sad ;_; (can’t remember how many times I clicked the surrender button in those fights)

  • Tatsumarii

    Hometown meals on my Vita? YES PLEASE!

  • wyrdwad

    What you may have missed during the livestream is that, apparently, the loser of the cooking match is then subjected to nyotaimori:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nyotaimori

    The producers coyly refused to show any footage of the nyotaimori scenes during the livestream, however, but assured us that they would be amazing.

    And no, I’m not joking. This is actually a thing they announced for the game.

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      Not surprised. Well, I’m sure all the fans of the series won’t be either

    • M’iau M’iaut

      And it goes further and further down the h-jrpg rabbit hole. It has long been a staple of those to have certain scenes occur only after ‘losing’ a fight :P.

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        Hey hey they put some censors on that it becomes family friendly

      • Anesia Hunter

        if they have no problem showing nyotaimori on a dwarf on animal planet (it was on pit boss) and showing people actually eating the food i don’t think NA will have too much of an issue.

    • ZetaSiren

      more reasons to get the game ;) haha

    • konsama

      Holy cow, i’m preordering this.

      • TheExile285

        Its PSN only

        • Xerain

          So no preorder bonus, meaning I can take my sweet time buying it? Yay. Too many import games in March / April.

        • konsama

          Even better! Not making line to buy some game that would raise some eyebrows, :P

          Obv will rise other stuffs mostly, but not my point. keke

          • Anesia Hunter

            the eye-brow raisers are the most entertaining, since they wanna say something, but they know they can’t and they’re usually the employees, which forces them to keep their silence even more.

            when shinovi vs comes out and if it comes out as a physical release i’d love to see their faces even more when they see a chick buying the game.

    • Xerain

      It would make sense if they serve the food you made….

  • ZetaSiren

    I love this line: “I’m not exactly sure how that works, but hey, it’s Senran Kagura.” Oh such beauty :)

  • tubers

    I wish the chopping and stuff have sound effects option.

    It seemed a bit lifeless w/o it during the stream but it kinda makes sense so there’s no distraction from the music.

  • Highasthesky

    Since i’m not a huge fan of rhythm games i’d be buying this game purely for fan service, from what i’v seen most of the animations are re-used from SV. I guess i’ll wait for To Love Ru in may.

    • Freakmasta

      It is only like 2000~2500 yen for Part A (Hanzo and Homura Team) so it’s pretty cheap ,I would say, for reused assets.

      • Highasthesky

        Really? if that’s the case that seems fair. I’m still waiting for another SK game for Vita, hopefully EV will be out soon.

        • TheExile285

          Be warned. It’s cheap because its DD only.

          • Freakmasta

            I see what you did there…

  • Serge

    Why is the like/unlike bot working just in favor of the Vita and the Wii-U?

    • benhofb

      WHAT IS EVEN GOING ON WITH THAT BOT?

    • konsama

      Cuz only a bot would favor those two consoles.

      Na just kidding.

  • niko

    Too bad it’s PSN only. Vita is region free moreso for cartridges than PSN where you need to do the whole account/card switching thing which is a pain.

    • michel

      I think that a system update to let the Vita have a normal way to switch accounts would be the best thing ever for gamers like us. Even better than any game’s release.

      • niko

        Yeah, i know people enjoy somehow rationalizing the switching as being this easy to do thing but it’s a huge pain, I’ve done it once and that’s enough. Eh, what can you do. It’s not common for PSN only games that i’m going to bother complaining.

  • PreyMantis

    All these teasing! Just make an h-game already XD

    • TheExile285

      No >_>

  • Prinny Dood

    Id be pissed if they localiz this and not shinovi versus

    • Renaldi Saputra

      seems XSeed isn’t interested in rhythm games, so maybe we won’t see this.. also it’s Vita

      • British_Otaku

        XSeed would be interested in localising rhythm games if they saw money in it, surely this can sell enough as a lower budget SK spinoff with just the Senran Kagura brand behind it and being a digital title with much less voicework or dialogue to translate it will cost less, potential music rights aside.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          maybe you’re right.. just like NISA localizing Neptune Idol PP

  • Pinkemon

    >6 out of 8 popular posts are now Senran Kagura related.

    Is Siliconera x Boobs a canon pairing now?

  • leingod

    Kinda reminds me of the old PS1 game, Bust a Move (Groove in the US) … it was a VS. rhythm game where you could attack the opponent.

  • Göran Isacson

    Strip. Cooking.

    Oh Senran Kagura. Say what one will, but you are at the very least honest about your appeal…

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Vita is loving rhythm games, now with more plot

  • Christopher McNair

    BEWBs!! I’m gonna take this game behind the bushes.
