Dekamori Senran Kagura Made To Satisfy Mankind’s Three Major Desires

Marvelous AQL recently surprised us by announcing three new Senran Kagura titles, including an upcoming rhythm/cooking game featuring the series’ busty ninjas. In an interview with Famitsu magazine, series producer Kenichiro Takaki talks about how the idea of Dekamori Senran Kagura came to be.


Famitsu starts the Dekamori Senran Kagura talk by asking how why decided to make it a download-only title for PlayStation Vita.


“This will be part of the challenging plan of creating our first spin-off title. So rather than starting off with a physical version and selling it at a high price, we decided to sell it a price where it can be purchased in a lighthearted manner,” explains Takaki.


“Since we’re holding down the price, I believe that some people who are thinking ‘maybe I should try it out,’ will have a higher chance of doing so, which is one of the possibilities I want to make happen.”


Next, Famitsu asks about the reason they decided to go with a cooking theme for Dekamori Senran Kagura.


“I believe that mankind’s three major desires come from sex, appetite and sleep, and we’ve covered plenty of the first part, so I think that next would be appetite. That way we can cover both sex and appetite desires at once,” shares Takaki with a laugh.


Famitsu then asks how the rhythm genre came into play.


“In terms of gameplay and storytelling, I just wanted to have something that can be played lightheartedly,” responds Takaki. “Instead of having something that requires complicated controls, having cute girls cooking while occasionally being seen in naughty situations would need a system that would allow you to watch it leisurely. We thought that a rhythm game would suit it best. Food, music and erotica.”


Out of curiosity, Famitsu asks what kind of music one can expect from Dekamori Senran Kagura.


“We’ve prepared a total of 22 new tracks,” says Takaki. “Out of that, there are six songs that were specially picked up for the occasion. They’re all good songs; some are silly while others are cool, and they were chosen to fit the image of the characters.”


Additionally, Takaki also mentions that players who’ve purchased DLC for Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versusi will be able to use it in Dekamori Senran Kagura, so they won’t have to worry about having to repurchase them again.


Finally, the series producer says that there will be “costume destruction,” as it wouldn’t be a Senran Kagura game without the feature. According to Takaki, it’ll happen to the character with fewer cooking points, and if you’re wondering how much destruction, it’ll be similar to that of Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus.


Dekamori Senran Kagura is slated for release on March 20, for PlayStation Vita.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    I don’t know about rhythm games being leisure material considering how hard project diva is

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      That shit makes me cry,I can barely do songs on normal.

      • Pdugna

        on Vita or on PS3? Vita is slightly easier for me….of course I played Keyboard tracks on Stepmania so stuff like Project Diva are pretty easy.

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          every system it’s ever been on xD. Maybe I just don’t have enough skill I don’t know.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    The man knows what he’s talking about.

    I love how frank he is about the subject matter of his games, it’s refreshing.

    • This, so hard. To me, showing transparency is the same as showing respect.

      • Linhua

        … wow that’s… the first time i’ve ever heard that word used in a social sense.

        … yet I can’t quite grasp the context .-. Please explain.

        • Cyo

          If you’re referring to transparency, then it just means the guy is completely open and no bullshit.

          • Linhua

            … ah, thank you for clearing that up.

  • Shippoyasha

    Pretty nice of Takaki to think about the price factor. I still hope for a physical release but his explanation makes sense especially for some fans who only like certain characters or school factions.

    I also hear he will be the writer of many songs as well. Truly an erotica game auteur!

  • Ticktockman

    The next logical step is a game with sleepwalking cooking busty girls

    • Muammar Gibran N

      Cooking the girls? Hahaha

  • Eclipse

    Lol, Takaki is such a likeable guy~!

    It’s also pretty cool that we can use the previous DLC from SV.

  • TheExile285

    “I believe that mankind’s three major desires come from sex, appetite and sleep”

    Lol, I love these guys xD.

    • Linhua

      … i’ll vouch for that sleep, definitely.

      … after working two jobs over the course of the holiday and clocking ridiculous 60+ hours week by week… I have learned never to take sleeping for granted… = =;; …

    • Darkrise

      One of the many truths in this world.

  • Zonic505

    I continue to laugh & admire this man’s honestly. It’s just so great being so out-front with his thoughts.

  • tubers

    Sex, Song and Sushi!

    Sleep? Please don’t be mean I’d go Zzzz.. with the music :P I want to get pumped!

  • Rattlemebones

    I want to have a nice cold drink with this guy.
    He speaks his mind and I love it.

    • mirumu

      I know what you mean. If I ever meet him I’m buying a round.

  • mirumu

    DLC you buy for Shinobi Versus will also work in Dekamori Senran Kagura? Now that’s the way to treat customers. Respect.

  • I love the way this man thinks XD!

    I swear Takaki is holding the World in his hands right now laughing because he knows what he’s about to unleash upon mankind soon lol.

  • “Takaki also mentions that players who’ve purchased DLC for Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versusi will be able to use it in Dekamori Senran Kagura, so they won’t have to worry about having to repurchase them again.”

    Pretty cool.

    You know what? Just because this is Senran Kagura, I’ll buy the game. I’m not into Rhythm/Cooking game usually, but I love this franchise so much.

  • fairysun

    I have one more major desires: Gaming! which is already covered :D

  • J_Joestar

    So when do we get a Senran Kagura game equivalent of

    It could probably work well on the 3DS with the charge cradle or the Kid Icarus Stand they gave out. Just set it up next to your bed and go to sleep with the girl of your choice on the screen.
