A Few More Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson Screenshots To Gawk At

By Spencer . January 13, 2014 . 10:37pm

Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson continues the beat ’em up series with new features like co-op gameplay and a tag team mode. The camera also shifts in Senran Kagura 2 from a side-scrolling perspective to different angles to make use of stereoscopic 3D on the 3DS.

Been playing Senran Kagura Burst? Save data will unlock Murasame, Ikaruga’s older brother, as a playable character. Ikaruga will also be available for newcomers to the Senran Kagura series as downloadable content. Why did producer Kenichiro Takaki go back to Nintendo 3DS? Read this.


Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson is scheduled for release in Japan on August 7 for Nintendo 3DS.

    Spencer? Heads up. You meant “Murasame” will also be available for newcomers to the Senran Kagura Series as downloadable content. Either way, yay for new screenshots! Get psyched!

  • Slayven19

    Wait so Ikaruga isn’t a regular character anymore and now she is DLC along with her brother? I hope this is a mix up or something.

    • No. Ikaruga is still a regular playable character. Her brother is unlocked if you have Burst save-data. If you don’t he’ll be paid DLC.

      • Slayven19

        Ok, thanks for the clear up.

    Co-op sounds fun.

      It does, but I want to know how the game will balance the experience between having an AI support or a human player. Being a portable game aside which nearly always needs two copies, the chances of an importer of a Japanese copy crossing paths with another importer or someone with the compatible localisation are slim.

      E.X. Troopers and One Piece Unlimited World RED generally made AI Supports weaker through how the AI behaves and how they handle failure (allies don’t lose health when you don’t play as them in One Piece but all of them dying is a problem, while them going down in E.X. Troopers isn’t a problem though you can’t switch around). I can see times when this game asks us to win without either character dying.

      Also, what happens when the AI gets split too far from the player? E.X. Troopers (aside from VR Missions where people warp in) has them run to the player in at own pace while One Piece Unlimited World RED has some weird unnatural auto-teleport when you get too much distance. I guess the ninja jump lines or whatever would work here.

    So pretty :O

    I don’t know if it’s because of Shinovi Versus but the bottom right screenshot have…weird models.

  • Ah, so many D’s to gawk at in 3D lol =^_^=

  • Ikagura looks fierce as always. ♥

    Hopefully we’ll have some infos about the new girls soon (Kagura and Naraku). Especially Kagura, her name can’t be a coincidence…

  • British_Otaku

    I’m not sure if players who started with Burst (basically anyone without Japanese 3DS without a doubt) will noticed, but it is a first for the 3DS series outside the Hebijo story (which was more polished) that we have more than 2 character models on screen while a conversation is going on. I wonder if they put some more effort into the flaps too, the mouth flaps, they were subtle enough to be there and not get in the way before, but SK2 can do so much more, the story bits need to be more expressive.

    Waiting for that demo though I’m pretty sure the Nyuu Nyuu DX Pack will be mine.

  • Mitsukiix

    i hope ikaruga’s bro is pretty and manly.

    • MXC

      Wait isn’t he only coming out for SK Estival Versus?

      • He’s probably going to be in Estival Versus as well, but for now, he’s playable in Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson.

        • MXC

          Ah ok I thought he was gonna be only for Estival Versus since I saw him next to the Estival Versus game info on the Japanese article.

  • Kayriss Wins

    Uh oh I’m worried, why Is Ikaruga DLC? she’s a staple character for crying out loud!

    • Lynx

      Ikaruga = / = Murasame

      It’s talking about Murasame. Probably just a name mix up.

      • Kayriss Wins

        Hope your right about that, otherwise I’ll just dwell on in an unhealthy fashion.

  • nonscpo

    Seeing as how this is Crimson 2 we probably wont be playing any of the Hanzo shinovi except for Asuka and the DLC characters, did I get that right or wrong?
