The Fearsome Daidouji And Rin Join The Fight In Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson

By Sato . May 30, 2014 . 3:33am


Daidouji and Rin appeared in Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus as DLC characters, and according to the game’s official website, it looks like they’re already in the mix for Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson for Nintendo 3DS.



To catch you up to speed, Daidouji is a legendary third-year student at Hanzou Academy, who speaks in an old-fashioned manner. She postponed her graduation, and currently believes that Rin is still alive. In combat, Daidouji uses her overwhelming power to crush foes.


Rin is secretly a teacher at the Academy of the Serpent as Suzune. She was also a student of Kiriya, who appeared in Senran Kagura Burst, and she was also Daidouji’s senior at the Hanzo Academy. After being involved in an accident and saved by the headmaster from the Academy of the Serpent, she became a teacher for the serpent.


Rin used to have a cheerful personality in the past, as her goal was to become a Super Ninja. She uses a giant shuriken-like weapon with blades that she can spread out and close during combat.


Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson will be released on August 7, 2014 for Nintendo 3DS in Japan.

    The female jotoro returns!!!!!

    • Internet is Crash

      The thumbnail looks like a fem Jotaro and fem young Joseph :))

      • fairysun

        Probably because she wears scarf.

    • Freakmasta

      I’d say she’s Jotaro fused with Akuma from SF.

  • It’s great to have both of them as non-secret/DLC characters, for a change. They’re awesome, and they clearly have a place in the story with what we know about them. Can’t wait, Deep Crimson appears to be a great game with each news!

    • British_Otaku

      There were two 3DS games before Shinovi Versus, those two weren’t DLC there either but I suppose the core issue is whether they are core to the story (we even see them in a photo with everyone else)…

      SK2 will still have paid DLC with Ikaruga’s brother if you don’t have a save file iirc…

    • J_Joestar

      I understand about DLC, but secret characters are nice to have as it is like bonus content for free.

  • British_Otaku

    Here is hoping that they are more fun to play with this time, I suppose some people want the senpai and sensei in the universe to be super strong, but they came across as broken in Senran Kagura Burst to the point where without any leveling up, they could tank or take on any mission including the post game ones without any trouble.

    Not to mention that their movesets were pretty dull. >_>

    I suppose, they will get better like everything else. Haruka has changed a ton with some of her concepts coming from Shinovi Versus.

    • Shippoyasha

      The first game was testing the waters I feel. It was more of a robust visual novel than a brawler. This game looks to improve both the VN and beat em up elements.

  • Takane Shijou

    Really happy Rin is in there, but I’m honestly more excited for the prospect of co-op in the game. Definitely something I’m looking forward to quite a bit.

    • nonscpo

      Really hope they elaborate or expand Rins story, as for Daidouji I hope they improve it. For some reason I felt Rin was a more endearing character than Daidouji turned out be.

  • NeptuniasBeard

    Daidouji is the only character I actually wish would keep their clothes on all the time. Her Ninja outfit is more awesome than the rest of the game is sexy

    • J_Joestar

      It honestly annoyed me that her outfit had no “damaged” form and went straight into destroyed phase.

  • fyi1191

    Bet on it. Daidouji & Rin pair is gonna roflstomp everything.

    • s07195

      An extra ‘fun’ mode. XD
      Roflstomping is fun.

  • Skeptika Crediblus

    Those…. abs… o_O

    • Are glorious =)

      • Skeptika Crediblus

        I want the castoffable revoltech figure of her NOW.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      yes <3

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Awesome Character. She is an absolute favorite.

    • Guest

      (in comes weird idea's lol)

  • Yaggyu

    I hope they won’t make Daidouji slow again don’t get me wrong shes good but shes really hard to use in time limit missions

    • fyi1191

      I think they already fixed that.
      She’s running in Shinovi Versus.

      • Yaggyu

        oh really i didn’t know that thanks for the heads up

  • J_Joestar

    Pairing of an unstoppable force and an immovable object.

  • Rohan Kishibe

    Sutā Purachina

  • Kayriss Wins

    I love these characters but holy hell are they broken especially in Shinovi Versus, I bet they’ll be really good in this game too lol.

  • glenngunnerzero

    In game about Ninjas, Rin – the bonus character from the evil ninja side is the only one who looks the part.
