Senran Kagura Producer Would Like To Make A PlayStation 4 Game

By Sato . May 6, 2014 . 5:30pm


Producer Kenichiro Takaki is known for making lighthearted games for handheld consoles, namely the Senran Kagura series, but he recently talked about how he’d be very interested in making a game for the PlayStation 4 during a recent interview with 4Gamer.


4Gamer asks if there are any game system elements in the latest Senran Kagura games that should be considered a focus to help sell the games.


“Actually, we’re not really doing anything special for them [as far as game system features go],” Takaki replies. “They’re really easy to understand, similar to how [we’ve made Senran Kagura games in the past]. We wanted to avoid putting people in a situation where you’d have to do something ridiculous, which could make things more difficult to understand.”



“Basically, it’s a game where you love the girls, so we don’t want to lose the sense of being able to enjoy it in a lighthearted way,” he continues. “It’s something simple, where you get to enjoy a simple game, then have a ‘busty reward’ waiting for you when you’re done.”


Considering how easy it is to play the Senran Kagura games, as Takaki says that they’re lighthearted games that don’t even require you to read the information booklets, 4Gamer asks if he ever thought about releasing them on smartphones.


“I personally like consoles, and I’ve always had a strong feeling of wanting to make games for PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS, as we’ve done thus far,” says Takaki.


Next, 4Gamer asks about the possibility of having Takaki make games for home consoles like the PlayStation 4, as there are likely a lot of people who’d like to play some of his games in the comfort of their homes, and on a large screen.


“I’m actually very interested,” responds Takaki with a laugh. “It’s been a while [since they were on a home console] as far as my games go, but I believe that home consoles shine the best for games; so if there’s an opportunity for me, I’d definitely take it. Using recent technology with cameras and AR, there are countless fun things that can be made.”



Now that the Senran Kagura series is entering its third year anniversary, 4Gamer asks Takaki if he ever thought it’d come this far.


“As a producer, the goal of keeping the series going for a while was there from the start,” shares Takaki. “However, I also understand the harshness of reality, so it would also be true to say that I didn’t think it’d continue as smoothly.”


“I believe that we were able to come this far from the result of not thinking [that much] ahead and just putting all that effort into our work, instead. Having been able to keep this series going, and also being able to go further, is something I’m very grateful for. I’m grateful to everyone and their support.”


Finally, 4Gamer asks Takaki if he feels like things become a bit harder to control as a producer, once the scale of a project becomes bigger as the franchise it’s part of continues to grow.



“The very first title was brand new, so I was able to do things however I wanted, but now that there are more people working on it, it’s true that it has become difficult to do the same,” he replies.


“However, one fortunate thing about being at Marvelous is that they let me keep working the way I have. As long as I deliver the results, I can keep doing things the way I like, without having them say much about it.”

  • Eder García

    but he teased a Senran Kagura game for PS4 in that nico nico stream early this year right? or the japanese language barrier says other thing

    • AkuLord3

      Didn’t tease it for the Ps4, but teased that Estival Versus being on most of the Sony consoles

  • Kayseur

    Well there’s Estival Versus which platform isn’t even revealed yet, right? This one could be a PS4/PSV game. Though *if* it’s implied in this article that he has no PS4 game scheduled yet, then EV’s probably going to be a PS3/PSV game.

    But yes I’d like to see that myself, apart from boobs of an even greater quality you could make bigger maps (an aspect definitly inferior to the DW games), add more ennemies variety, stuff like that.

    Or make a fighting game spin off for the PS4. ‘Cause I sure would like to see one.

  • TheExile285

    Dats quite the outfit, Asuka.

    I love his view on the series. The light heartedness of SK Burst is one of the reasons why I enjoyed it so much. Looking forward to Shinovi Versus and Deep Crimson.

  • Do it.
    We need it.

    Seriously, it has to happen. Senran Kagura on PS4 would be so great.

  • chibidw

    The most graphically advanced….plot, yet!

  • DesmaX

    Senran Kagura stream on Twitch could be fun.

    • Eder García

      Finest KO was streaming Shinobi Versus few months ago if memory serves me… or you talking about that nico nico stream where gravure girls were doing strange things?

  • Spider-Man

    Oh god yes please! DO IT FOR ME! I’LL SAVE YOUR LIFE FOR FREE!

    • PkmnChmp5

      I thought everybody got one?

  • Firion Hope

  • ReidHershel


  • otakumike

    yep, your games are especially kind to us importers too. Keep the games easy to understand! :)

  • new_tradition

    Coupled with a Morpheus headset, surely the dream of wrapping the world in happy boobs is one step closer to being realized.

  • Chaos_Knight

    I wonder if he has the balls to make a SK game for Wii U. There has been one game on 3DS and THAT got localized!

    • TheExile285

      1. There been two games on 3DS. Burst contains the first game which is why its the only one thats been localized.

      2. Maybe I’m reading this wrong but it sounds like you’re implying 3DS games dont get localized often…which isn’t true.

  • Joshua Myers

    Bring on the ps4 jrpgs then i will have a reason to actually buy one since im on my PC most of the time

  • AuraGuyChris

    That last pic…

  • Anesia Hunter

    I would buy a PS4 early just Senran Kagura.

  • I don’t know. With SK, you need to be ready to stuff it in your pocket when your parents walk in. Imagine all of that on a 4K display. o_O

  • Zer0faith

    This right here is why I held off on any of the next gen. Well no more.
    It’s time.

  • Letrico

    SENRAN KAGURA, BURRSSST 3D HD 1080P 60FPS jiggle and localised to the west in physical form. Best thing that could happened to PS4.

  • プレイステーション4行くぞ!

  • This alone makes my PS4 worth having XD

  • Tarkovsky

    Next gen boob physics pleeease :3

  • KnifeAndFork


    Sure why not. You’ve only had since 2011 to get started on it Japan devs…. -_-

  • CozyAndWarm

    He really oughta reconsider for Wii U instead. The gamepad screen can be used for some… *interesting* camera angles.

    • J_Joestar

      both would be the best choice.
      Life should be shared to all people.

  • Prinny Dood

    Senran kagyra producer would to bring shinovi versus to the us this summer

  • fyi1191

    Make it happen! Save the PS4 from darkness.

  • AndyLC

    I wonder how he’ll make use of the PS4’s touch pad…

    • Speedo Redempteur

      Touch pad AND internal speaker !!
      You need the maximm experience for the best feedback.
      his use of teh vita gyro in shinobi versus was pretty great so we can hope great things.

  • leingod

    I say, let the man do his pervy craft. I totally dig it, and have no shame in admitting it.

  • Do it

  • hazelnut1112

    All this Japanese support for the PS4 is looking pretty damn good right now.

  • Yan Zhao

    Boobs in high definition!? Sure why not!

  • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

    It’s actually a tease. They’re making something.

  • TalesOfBS

    Bring a Wii U version or screw it.
    I want to “use” the gamepad.

  • nonscpo

    Wow I can’t believe I’m writing this, but a Senran Kagura game on a PS4; now that would be a system seller.

  • phayroent

    Well, we non Japanese speakers would like to play SK:SV on our Vitas as well. Please. I wish I won the lottery, cause I would fund a crap ton of games out of love for the medium.
