By Ishaan . March 4, 2014 . 10:47am

Xseed Games are teasing a new localization project via their Twitter feed. You can look at the tweet in question below.

Read more stories about on Siliconera.

  • Kenny Loh

    senran kagura for vita?

    • otakumike

      seems very likely.

    • Satori Satya

      It is.

      XSEED games hinted that the game was coming soon. This by way of a x-mas card they published late last year.

      That and this factoid:

      “In an interview with Pocket Gamer, executive vice president of XSEED, Ken Berry, discussed the success of “Senran Kagura Burst” and the desire to localized “Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus.”


  • Shinobikens

    Senran Kagura :D

  • Eric Harris

    Hey, sounds good whatever it is. :P

  • Quizler


  • fyi1191

    I can’t think of any other games besides Senran Kagura.

  • Arcana Drill

    Seran kagura shinovi versus…..

  • specs10

    Electric town? That’s akihabara, right?

  • Guest

    “Endowed Ladies”
    Senran Kagura

  • DesmaX

    Someone mentioned that, if you pick every initial letter of each word, you get “Electric Town”, which is a nickname for Akihabara (Or something. I dunno)

    Could be Akiba’s Trip 2

    • Anime10121

      That’d be good too! I’m more hype for that than Shinovi versus! Maybe its an announcement of both :D

    • Spider-Man

      Do the girls in Akiba’s Trip train and are well endowed? Do they battle their nemesis? Never heard of the series until now.

      • Raze

        They’re stripping vampire-like enemy

        • Spider-Man

          Well then, I guess I’m gonna have to buy it if this is getting localized.

          • DarkLight

            You know,how come I never see you in the movies spidey but that lame other spider man?I would so pay to watch a movie with a perverted superhero.

          • brian
          • Spider-Man

            It’s because Marvel and Sony want money from the family and little children audience, thus restricting my perverted potential. Someday you’ll get what you want, friend.

    • Zer0faith

      Whether it’s Akiba’s Trip 2 or Shinobi Versus, this being XSeed I am so like this right now:

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        I was hoping for diabolik lovers but shinboi versus would be good

        • Zer0faith

          Honestly I’m just glad LoH: TiTS (best acronym ever) isnt the only thing they have for spring.

    • ragingmerifes

      Maybe Shinovi Versus + Akiba’s Trip 2 + something else no one noticed yet.
      It wouldn’t be the first time Xseed teased and then announced more than one localization.

    • Anesia Hunter

      Huh… I never noticed that before. But yeah, it could be both Senran Kagura Shinovi VS and Akiba’s Trip 2, since they teased both sometime ago, but we still don’t know what the 3rd game that was teased was either.

    • Rolling Guy

      What if it’s BOTH AT2 and SV? :OOOOOOOOOOO

      Xseed, I love you so much you don’t even have to try anymore!

      • phayroent

        I’d buy both the minute they went up for sale in the U.S., and thank XSEED continuously until I’d beaten both games.

  • Spider-Man

    Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus, PLEASE!

  • Tetris

    Just give me the new Harvest Moon ffs

  • Raze

    Both Akiba and Shinovi…

    If they announce one for now…Then I’ll take Shinovi…

    • Anime10121

      I’d have to give kudos to XSEED if it is indeed both and that the clues to both were on purpose, as that kind of marketing is creative as hell for such a small company!

      • Raze


        They did post a teaser pic back then that lead to Akiba’s Trip 2. Shinovi Vs, and another title that’s still not sure enough (PSP and no…Not Tits SC)

  • Noor Mahmoud

    *Sets aside $50*

  • ZetaSiren

    I hope its Shinovi Versus. I imported that game. It’s super fun :D

  • Masa

    hopefully not something garbage like Senran Kagura!
    There are hundreds of Japanese only games better.

    • bassgs435

      please, do not insult Senran Kagura. some of us like it and you wouldn’t want games you like get called garbage , right?

      • HerokÔÖ×

        Some people like some games, some people like other games. It shouldn’t matter what other people think, because if they find something to be garbage, that shouldn’t take away your enjoyment of it. Like now I am enjoying LR:FF13 others have a lot less positive things to say about it but it doesn’t bother me.

    • Milewide

      In times as tough as these
      the west needs breasts

      That would never catch on would it? =/

      • It’s catchy, but not sure they would use it lol

        Perhaps make it rhyme a little more….

        “When times aren’t looking the best in the West, give them breasts”

        Idk lol =P

        • Milewide

          What about “Go Beyond Breasts” then?

          At least it’s timely, considering… =)

      • ishyg

        But the western world have more C-cups, right?

        Who am I to judge though, I’m surrounded by small-breasted (but otherwise beautiful and sexy) Japanese colleagues.

        My wife would probably kill me if she knows I’m commenting here.

        “The west needs breasts” is quite catchy though. Here, have a cookie.

    • British_Otaku

      Senran Kagura Burst is still charming and solid even if I would demand for many non-Marvelous published games (this is the primary problem, SK is both a safe bet but an in-house pick for Marvelous Europe and USA/Xseed) first. Like E.X. Troopers.

      Fortunately the sequels (I assume you are concerned with the quality of Burst) are a notable step up from the packed but budget launch year 3DS game with an update.

      • Why did you bring up E.X. Troopers. ;n;

  • Please be Senran Kagura or Akiba’s Trip :3

  • JonathanisPrimus

    You know, XEED turned into a softcore sex game publisher so gradually, I didn’t even notice.

    • Nanaki

      I don’t see many complaints, thankfully!

    • z_merquise

      It’s more like just them taking risks and understanding what the niche crowd would love to see. And the list of games they localize is pretty diverse so I can’t say that they’re turning to a softcore porn game publisher.

      • wyrdwad

        I believe that was a modified Simpsons quote. ;)

    • dark-kyon

      try harder ,senran kagura,akibastrip and every game make in japan can not have scenes of sex visual or the any type,the cero rating board do not allow them,the pegi and esrb allow sex in games how witcher and god of war for that before talking nonsenses can you do some research .

      • wyrdwad

        Again, pretty sure he was quoting The Simpsons! From the Lisa’s Future episode, where Marge remarks, “You know, FOX turned into a hardcore porn channel so gradually, I didn’t even notice!”

        I thought it was a well-placed reference.

        • ishyg

          Thanks for the clarification. With such vague reference for this instance, given that this site caters to a smaller niche of people who’d probably know more Japanese game/anime quotes than western shows, the confusion is understandable.

          Well-placed reference I definitely agree with.

  • Pheria


    I need to stop importing games so soon.

    I used to be able to guess pretty easily what would and wouldn’t get localized.

    ^^^ That’s AWESOME that I can’t anymore. Bring on the games!

  • Shadowman

    Senran Kagura 2015

  • Varnes


  • Aristides

    How about thy give us both SV and AT2 :P

  • Nanaki

    ..and thus it ensues.

  • new_tradition

    Didn’t Xseed release some big teaser collage not too long ago of what to expect. What did those games end up being?

    • JonathanisPrimus

      J-Stars Victory Vs, Medarot 7, and Final Fantasy Type-0.

      Nah, it was Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus, Akiba’s Trip 2, and English Detective Mysteria.

  • Land of Green Pasture

    either way it’s gonna be….



  • Kayseur

    Sounds more like Akiba’s Trip 2 than Senran Kagura. “Wicked nemeses” standing for the Magaimono, and you do have girls to “train”. (On top of what others said, Electric town being akihabara.)

    I don’t know if I’d double-dip and buy AT2 though, it would feel like putting my japanese copy to waste.

    • Christopher Nunes

      Could it be both?

      • dark-kyon

        is only one,in his forum xseed member tell what they gonna announce one game now,sadly this time is gonna be akibastrip 2,maybe senran kagura later.

    • TheExile285

      I’m pretty sure its both. “Endowed ladies” is a better description of SV cast then the AT2 cast and “training regiments in class” is most likely another SV tease since each of the SV groups is in a secret ninja cram school.

      • Kayseur

        Probably. Both have already been teased altogether once already anyway.

        Oh I saw on twitter that http://www.akibastrip.com/ had been registered recently.

  • z_merquise

    XSeed: Endowed ladies—

  • Firion Hope

    Oh crap! Please be a new Senran for the west, please be a new senran for the west! <3

    Xseed announcements always get me excited

  • Atwa

    Better not be censored.

    • z_merquise

      One of the XSeed employee (who goes by the name Wydward) posts here in Siliconera. He did express his thoughts about censorship in games and that he’s against it.

    • ishyg

      Well, if track record is to be followed, just look at Valhalla Knights 3. So I’m quite positive that it’s not censored.

  • Demeanor

    Isn’t that a scream for Shinovi Versus?

  • Leon_Tekashi

    This better be Senran Kagura, or I’m hurting someone! Lol jk aside. This tease is killing me!

  • Slickyslacker

    I don’t see why it would be censored. I don’t know of any “explicit” content in Shinovi Versus that wouldn’t make the cut, seeing as Nintendo allowed Burst onto their leading console, uncensored.

    On the off-chance that it’s Akiba’s Trip 2, that would be nice.

    The only question that remains is: who gets physical copies, if anyone at all?

  • Kayriss Wins

    Ladies? Class? Training? Nemesis? yeah we know what it is, all aboard the hype train express everyone!


  • leingod

    Shinovi Versus, yay!

  • 3PointDecoupage

    More boob ninjas…

  • Lilith

    I…. Ummmm…. To Love Ru Darkness?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      I think it will be never localized

  • hazelnut1112

    Congrats Vita owners, y’all getting Shinovi versus.

  • ronin4life

    The first letters of each word make up the sentence “Electric Town”

    • ronin4life

      DOH! I finally spotted something like this on my own and am already beat to it…>.>;;


    • neocatzon

      Woah, Akiba?

  • Eric Harris

    I’m calling it now, digital.

    • wyrdwad

      You will be quite surprised by the truth of the matter, then. ;)

  • MSJ

    Shinovi Versus


  • Anesia Hunter

    Senran Kagura Shinovi VS!!

  • Revolver Jesus Super Pimp

    Well, time to set aside some cash and play the waiting game.

  • Tom

    Valkyria Chronicles 3? Probably not just trying…

    • Zangetsu777

      lol I wish it was Valkyria Chronicles 3.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    having played shinovi versus it sounds like but it could be something we’ve never heard about

  • Land of Green Pasture

    and just few times ago Gematsu said it’s Akiba’s trip 2

    now what I need is release date and hope NISA bring it to EU

    • Anesia Hunter

      Akiba’s Trip 2 is for the PS Vita, correct? So, even if no one was to localize the game for EU couldn’t you just import the NA version?

      • wyrdwad

        Just to answer your question (not confirming anything), Akiba’s Trip 2 is Vita and PS3, both of which are region-free platforms.

  • DarthSithZero

    Senran Kagura! Senran Kagura! Senran Kagura!

  • chroma816

    It’s been mentioned in the comments already, but the first of each word spells “Electric Town”, a nickname for Akihabara due to all of it’s electronics stores and vidya places and whatnot. Akiba’s Trip 2 is very likely.

    That said, the endowed women in class for fighting thing is also totally about Senran Kagura.

    We’re definitely getting both.

  • AkiraScare

    Nemeses?!!! or nemesis…. Which is right?!!! (0_0)

    • wyrdwad

      Nemeses is the plural of nemesis.

      One nemesis, multiple nemeses. The latter is pronounced “NEM-eh-sees.”

      • AkiraScare

        Thankyou sir for the clarifications (^_^)

  • I was just thinking that it’s probably something I won’t be interested in. That seems to most likely be the case. 0u0; (I’m partially amused and a little surprised but not really about certain expectations I had).

  • Tsurugi


    • Renaldi Saputra

      we also hope for that

    • JonathanisPrimus

      Unfortunately, the only boobs in the Medabots franchise are The Screws.

  • British_Otaku

    If they are going for Senran Kagura and I hope FUNimation are lining up the cast to dub the game (dual audio still) and the anime that they got the rights to (home video rights if I remember and few releases from FUNi don’t have a dub).

    No idea if “Akiba’s Trip 1” (everyone mentions 2) was localised or whether it is one of those Bravely Default/Senran Kagura/White Knight Chronicles cases where the second release is or has the first game.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      same case for AT2 with Conception II
      their first game were on PSP, on the time when PSP had been dead in US

  • Kaihedgie

    Sounds boring, to be honest

  • …oh, more Senran Kagura.

    Ah well, I guess there’s not much in the way of games not yet announced for localization that that I would hope/expect to see from Xseed anyway (no way SquEnix will outsource DQ7, except maybe for Nintendo to publish).

  • MitsukiIX

    Exstetra, the game no one wants.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      XSeed had said they had no interest in the game
      so, nope

      • new_tradition

        What? Awwww D:

        Who else would be willing to bring it over then *ponders*

        • Renaldi Saputra

          Atlus maybe?

    • DyLaN


  • Doctor Nebula

    Please Shinovi Versus, after playing Burst, I need more Senran Kagura.

  • Kazekage Gaara

    Senran Kagura Burst in physicl form? No? oh :(

  • Renaldi Saputra

    wicked nemeses?
    Akiba’s Trip is a game about demolishing vampire

    could be it

  • Ladius

    Considering the Happy Holidays card from XSEED hinted at Akiba’s Trip 2, Senran Kagura Versus and English Detective Mysteria’s localizations, I think this tease could very well point at both Akiba’s Trip (the Akihabara reference) and SKV (the text itself).

  • Kornelious

    Wow, i wonder…
    what this….
    new game will be…..

    Seriously though it’s just a matter of choice, or maybe both :D

  • Lemski07

    GOD EATER 2 , and AKIba’s STIP for sure! my cash to 2015 is halfway booked

    • Renaldi Saputra

      GE2 is Bandai Namco, never

  • WhyWai

    “Could be Akiba’s Trip 2” <—— Yes!!!!!!!!

  • RedSuisei

    Actually it seems like it’s not going to be Shinovi Versus.At least, not anytime soon.
    1. In the XSEED forums, Tom mentioned they will only announce one game in the immediate future.
    2. The sentence is an acronym that can lead to either SV or AT2.
    3. Domain for akibastrip.com has been registered.

    So likely we’re getting Akiba’s Trip 2 first. SV maybe sometime later.

    Though I don’t mind either :)

    • Vanadise

      I think it’s also worth pointing out that akibastrip.com was registered by somebody with an @xseedmarketing.com e-mail address: http://www.whois.com/whois/akibastrip.com

      • RedSuisei

        Yep, which means it’s even more likely that we’ll see AT2 first, hopefully in a few days ;)

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    GOD EATER 2 or Akiba’s Trip 2

    • Renaldi Saputra

      how can be GE2 localized by XSeed? it’s IMPOSSIBRU

  • ishyg

    It’s either Shinovi Vs or Akiba’s Trip 2, the two titles I hoped to be localized.

  • TheExile285

    Guys….. XSEED isn’t going to localize GE2. This us for Akiba’s Trip 2 & Shinovi Versus.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      they forgot that GE2 is by Bandai Namco

  • EinMugenTenshin

    Senran Kagura for Vita and I can finally get the Vita. There has been so many borderline “worth buy Vita for”-games, that I’d pick up afterwards. None of them has been so great that I’d say they are worth a Vita price + game, which ultimately is what your first game will cost.

  • Rattlemebones

    If it’s senran kagura I hope the U.S. can get physical release that you have to pre-order off the site cause I would like that….maybe it could come with a tee-shirt and maybe a poster of all the girls.
    Also If it’s AT2 saves me the money having to import it.

    [Europe got lucky with burst]

    • Renaldi Saputra

      until this far, all games that had pervert/erotic things only had digital release on US

      • Eric Harris

        Yep which is why I’m just gonna assume digital. Not get my hopes up for physical.

        • wyrdwad

          You can get your hopes up a little. ;)

      • Landale

        Agarest series, Mugen Souls, Catherine to name a few. Those digital releases feel really good in my hands. Almost physical even.

  • Will John

    If this said Aksys was teasing an announcement I might’ve had a heart attack…

  • if it’s shinobi versus… then…YEAH

  • I was hoping for Criminal Girls

  • DyLaN

    Maybe it could be one of the games the silhouettes come frm? One of them is frm Akiba’s STrip 2, another is frm SV and the last one is frm English Detective Mysteria.

    My bet is on AS2.

  • Skeptika Crediblus

    Hmm… BooBies: the Game?

  • Ryumoau

    Oh god, i’m already turned off from this just by the description. Just sounds like an annoying fan service type game.
