    The Hibari/Hakura Butt Bump is a Tag-Team Attack!

    Game seems to run much smoother compared to Burst. Now to bug Xseed to bring it over.

    • OutlawStar26ep

      When I was thinking of the possible tag-team attacks I remembered the trailer when Haruka and Hibiri did the butt bump. Pretty funny that it actually became thier tag attack.

    • idrawrobots

      Isn’t it wonderful!

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      XSEED already has said they will bring more Senran Kagura games no need to bug em. Beside Burst sold well.

      • Death Metal

        No, they said they are “open to bringing” more SK games, which doesn’t mean anything concrete.

        • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

          same thing.

          • Death Metal

            No, it’s not. Of course it’s most likely that they will bring something, but they clearly don’t want to commit 100% to it yet.

          • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

            that because they haven’t started on bringing it. That why they haven’t commit yet.

  • DeHaExIs

    The Story in the end made me very curious… why would they do that again…

  • My, my. ♥ Everything looks great so far. Can’t wait to see some gameplay footage of Naraku and Kagura. And… Murasame! Yeah, I said it! (ΦωΦ)

    Also, it seems that the Big Bad’s the Snake-like thing at the end of the video. Or at least, one of the major antagonist(s) of the game. I really, REALLY can’t wait for this game. Long live to the Senran Kagura series~

  • Shippoyasha

    The in-game models seamlessly being declothed and upskirted makes it feel more perverse than cutting out of the combat scene (which is great!).

    The story seems to be going a pretty dark path as well. As crazy as it sounds, it’s easily one of my most anticipated games this year. By any miracle, Xseed can release it before the end of 2014, though I would likely think it’s coming 2015.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      I thought the game was already in the dark mostly considering some of the stuff with their past and things that happen

  • shuyai

    all i see is boob shaking like a pudding with tyrannosaur rex walkling close by.

    they shakes even when standing still XD

    • Death Metal

      That’s how we would like them to be IRL, no?

      • John Diamond

        id be slightly worried if i saw that

        • otakumike

          but probably more aroused. :p

        • Death Metal

          Probably not if it was how real life boob physics behaved, is what I mean. :P

    • Skeptika Crediblus

      There… nothing wrong with any of this.

  • OutlawStar26ep

    Looks like both the silliness and seriousness of the game have gone up. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. The alternate outfits look good in this one I already really want to use that witch costume for Asuka.

  • RaikageV

    It’s fully in 3D… right? (¬‿¬)

  • fairysun

    Somehow I want this one

  • Skeptika Crediblus

    I, for one, am looking forward to the story…

    • TheGioG

      In the words of the man himself: “When life gets you down, boobies get you up.”
      Serious note though, this game is looking to be the tits…
      I mean the breast…
      I mean the best… it looks goddamn amazing, okay?

    • NeptuniasBeard

      That’s a very large… ribbon?

      • Satori Satya

        Well they call them dirty pillows in some parts.

  • British_Otaku

    Ahh, being at work for once when a NSFW trailer comes up… I guess I’ll see the first trailer for the game later.

    I hope some team attacks are in the same shinobi team as well as crossing multiple ones. Yagyu and Hibari have a ton of potential too.

  • Pyrofrost

    You know what to do XSeed!
    Bring us the Life and Hometown!

  • Six

    Aww yiss. Easily my most anticipated 3DS game.

  • David Alexander

    Hometown just got renovated

    • J_Joestar

      Double Hometown Combi-Attack!

  • PreyMantis

    Now, we play the waiting game of localization.

  • Anime10121

    The jiggle physics in this game make Dead or Alive seem conservative :/

    And I aint even mad :D

    • J_Joestar

      I dunno, DOA 1 was pretty ridiculous

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      DOA is conservative

    • Satori Satya
      • British_Otaku

        Glad to see Eiken in there… >_>
        I mean I’m not glad to see Eiken in there…

    • Death Metal

      DOA has been “tamed”, unfortunately, to ridiculous levels in terms of boob jiggling, because it feared hard backlash from the more conservative side of the gamerbase from day 1. The current state of their boob physics is completely unnatural, and that because it’s almost not moving at all anymore even in the “OMG” setting in DOA5U, and when it does, it’s a slow, unrealistic, ugly motion. To me, the game that has the most realistic bouncing of large breasts to date is Soulcalibur V. It’s beautiful to watch.

      PS.: That is NOT to say that DOA5 is a bad game because of that, of course; the game is still badass and the character models are stunning. Such a shame it suffered from moral dilemma.

      • Ferofax

        Soulcaliber V. *noted*

      • Suicunesol

        They should add a slider in the options menu that determines how much boob jiggle there is. :D Everyone is happy!

        • Death Metal

          There’s an adult game from the infamous Illusion that’s called exactly that, Oppai Slider, in which you decide de bust size of the female characters with a slider in their properties. It’s all kinds of awesome, but it’s an old game now with outdated graphics, heh.

          • Suicunesol

            Oh no, I meant the slider would determine the viscosity of their breasts. Not the size.

          • Death Metal

            Oh, okay. That would be really cool as well, actually.

  • XiaomuArisu

    XD They have the double butt attack!!!

    • Prinnydoom

      Pulling a Sophitia/Cassandra combo there.

  • idrawrobots

    They have really taken the series up several notches. The graphics, the combos,the plot. I can wait to see the evolution of Senran Kagura.

  • 하세요

    I always have Jackie Chiles voice in my head when trying to describe this game.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    That homura figure is precious

  • SetzerGabbiani

    … 0_o … *rocket nosebleed* ….. K.O.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    What the heck is going on here? Is Hakura a double agent?

    • Eder García

      needs translations ASAP

    • Freakmasta

      It sounded like Haruka being manipulated but yeah, she sounded like she’s sacrificin’ them to that thing that’s talking.

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        I wonder if its orichimaru I want to strongly say it is

        • J_Joestar

          From Naruto? now why would he be involved in a series predominantly about buxom female ninjas and no shota ninjas?

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            You know that orichimaru isn’t just naruto based right?

          • J_Joestar

            it is if you add the “-maru” at the end.

          • Ialda

            There are several Naruto references in SK, in fact.

          • J_Joestar

            actual Naruto references or just generic ninja references that most people only know because of Naruto?

          • Ialda

            For example Katsuragi is a pervy ninja with a fondness for ramen, and the ED to the anime series is named ‘Fighting Dreamer’.

          • J_Joestar

            Pervy girl stereotype isn’t exactly new and is pretty common in series with a nearly all female cast.
            Both series are about Ninjas so the concept predates them both by a lot.
            Ramen isn’t really an unpopular anime food either.
            Naruto Opening 4 is actually titled “Go!”

      • Ialda

        Reminds me at the end of the Guren no Hebi manga when she was forced to fusion with Orochi…

    • nonscpo

      I can’t help but feel that this isn’t orochi, especially for a trailer it would seem to obvious, maybe their introducing a new character on the same level as orochi.

      • Suicunesol

        Haruka does say Orochi in the trailer. :) She welcomes him.

  • kaotron

    cant wait to see the masterful jigglin—I meant “great story telling” that senran kagra has to offer…

  • Taylor Greene

    I don’t understand why they are calling this ‘2’ if it is essentially a retelling of the Burst but with some new additions and changes to the story.

    • DeHaExIs

      Burst isn’t ‘2’ but it the same as the first game but from the serpent school point of view.

      • Taylor Greene

        I could have sworn details from when they first announced the game claimed that this was a sort of retelling. I hope I am wrong. I want to see the story move forward.

        • J_Joestar

          Well with maybe they start the game with a revamped version of the Orochi battle having Asuka and Homura fighting it together to show off the new team-up aspects of the game?

        • nonscpo

          I think you might be confusing this title with “Burst”. Senran Kagura Burst was the compilation of the first two games which happened to mirror each other.

    • Freakmasta

      This isn’t another retelling. This seems to be a sequel to Burst as they are now in Kyoto fighting demons instead of other ninjas.

    • You got it all mixed up. Senran Kagura is the first game in the series. Senran Kagura: Burst is an enhanced version of the original that also retells the story from the viewpoint of the Hebijo. This game, Senran Kagura 2, is a full fledged sequel to Burst that looks and plays much differently.

      Shinovi Versus is spin-off series with musou gameplay and that’s getting a sequel called Estival Versus on an unannounced PlayStation platform.

  • I know this has been used about a million times now, but breast game ever lol. Senran Kagura 2 looks seriously awesome though. Hope this gets localized soon =^_^=

  • Kayseur

    (One of) the game I’m getting my 3DS for. So far it looks great, I just kind of wish Hebijou Gakuen (the new with Miyabi) was in there, as I don’t like Asuka’s school.

    • British_Otaku

      I would say that the new girls from Shinovi Versus stand a decent shot of appearing and being playable after the secret characters… Not so sure that they wouldn’t promote Miyabi and friends if they wanted them to be featured though (unless it is sneaky DLC)… >_>

      Is there a reason why you don’t like “Asuka’s school”?

      • Kayseur

        I just don’t like its characters (so Asuka & co) except Ikaruga. As simple as that. I find them annoying for most of them, or boring. Unlike the two Hebijou (Miyabi / Homura) schools that I liked better. Gessen’s just alright.

        But yeah, I think they would have advertised them by now if they intended to put them in, they’re hardly minor characters. They probably want them to stay exclusive to the “Versus” (S&E), or at least for now.

  • otakumike

    Really liking the tag team moves and as shocked as I am to say it this looks nicer than the Vita version. Meat buns!!

  • J_Joestar

    XD at Katsuragi and Ikaruga getting an animated groping/counter scene.
    Wonder if they show her trying it out on anyone else in the full game (maybe one with Hikage at least?)

  • Firion Hope

    have to admit Im pretty excited for this game! I hope it fixes the minor problems of the first!

  • Kamakuma

    …Warning Not For Sexy Worktime?

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    …I mastered playing with one hand

  • vileBrenman

    Awesome the graphics look pretty legit. The combat looks really cool as well

  • OlimacFTW

    Just to correct a typo in the article, Ishaan. You wrote (Warning: NFSW).
    In the topic: The trailer was great, Xseed needs to bring this game as a retail this time.

  • Kayriss Wins

    Dat ominous ending in the video has me hyped. Based Xseed… PLZ

  • cyberkinghardy

    That means we’ll probably see Senran Kagura EV in 2015

    • British_Otaku

      Definitely, three Senran Kagura games in a year would have been a bit much. They are barely avoiding choking one game with another game’s marketing as it is.

  • Wicked Rob

    Can the 3ds even handle this game?

    • British_Otaku


      I have almost no idea what you mean by that, this is a 3DS exclusive and not showing off anything impossible for the system if you look at the other upper tier 3DS games…

  • British_Otaku

    So hype, the in-game cinematics look great, the new tracks featured in the trailer sound great (I’m going to enjoy that sound test… and hope they have the girl’s voice clips there for once), character costume customisation has taken a huge leap from random bits and bobs and full costumes to the point characters are basically unrecognisable (ridiculous but awesome – even in TTT2)…

    My only concern is how much Murasame costs in yen if you don’t have Burst save date? 800 yen? I guess that this point, it is still a better situation than Shinovi Versus as anyone can copy a save file to access what is hopefully unlocked without a download. I hope they don’t continue to price additional content for this game so haphazardly, even if Burst save data is another option.

  • hazelnut1112

    I seriously hope we get a physical release in NA this time.
    It sold well enough dammit.

    • J_Joestar

      It should be fairly likely unless SV comes out physically and gets some huge public backlash.

  • CozyAndWarm

    Ohhh yeah, looking good. Great to see how far the devs have come since Burst. (And there’d better be a physical release when it gets localized, XSEED. It’s sorta insulting to see a game fans have clamored for for over a year treated as a “proof of concept”.)

  • Asura

    Just terrible.

    • Mecha_the_Hedgehog

      Care to elaborate on this.

  • Mecha_the_Hedgehog

    Damn I cant wait for this game its going to be fun I’m pretty sure its coming to America one day. I still cant believe how improved this looks also the costume change feature you can make them look like a totally different character cant wait to play with that feature.

  • Slayven19

    I want his game now, but I am patient yes I am.

  • Ferofax

    Haha, I love the wordplay on this!

  • Remy Mangowal

    Is it only me that hopes for the Shinovi Versus’ other schools to re-appear here? ;___;
    I need more Yumi-chan…
