    It’s happening friends. SK is now a viable franchise. The floodgates are open!

        I like your avatar.

        • Jaeger Knighty

          I like yours too!

    • Manny Being Manny

      Yeah, at this point theres no excuse for the rest of the games to not come over here as well.

      Never thought I’d see the day

    • Jedahaw

      Bon Appétit!

  • Eder García

    whats the plot in this game?

    • ronin4life

      Judging from previous comments on the subject, “Life”.
      …or was it “HomeTown”?

      And in case you were serious about knowing what the game is actually about, you should know that “Plot” is a meme for… Anime Fanservice.

    • chroma816


      But seriously, while the other games have some plot, this one is as fanservicy as it gets – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

      • Shippoyasha

        It actually has a story mode so we should see. Glad I didn’t watch let’s play videos. I was hoping it’d get localized. Though I didn’t expect it this soon.

        • chroma816

          It has a story mode? I’m still not expecting too much, but I guess that’s kinda nice.

          And yeah, I definitely didn’t expect it to get localized so soon. Xseed knows us well – and we’re getting SKSV too, which is great.

    • Deletable Man

      They’ve got huge.. plots of land.

  • Takane Shijou

    Really happy we’re getting all these titles. Also enjoying all the love we’re getting for the Vita and localizations and such lately.

  • Manny Being Manny

    I wonder how many people will complain about this being digital only, even though it was digital only in Japan too.
    Day 1 buy for me.

    • Tenshigami

      This does change things for me, as that makes it “released as intended”, but at the same time I am glad I have yet to get into the SK series and that I don’t like rhythm games in general. The game is over 3GB! That would make my poor DSL connection cry. (I would not be on DSL if I had a choice.)

      Also that’s like an entire 1/5 or more of my 16GB card.

  • Combo

    I imagine these stories will be posted soon, but this was announced alongside Brandish: The Dark Revenant, and a PC port of the original Corpse Party.

  • Well, consider me surprised.

    • Andar

      This and Neptunia PP are games I thought would fall into the ‘too weird’ category to get a localization, but it looks like we’re moving beyond that, and I’m happy for it!

      • Hey, if it means more niche games out over here, sign me up. I think I’ll skip this game though and focus on Versus instead. But I’m sure there’s people who’re happy that this is coming out regardless!

  • Atwa


  • chroma816

    2014, year of Vita, etc.

    As long as we get all of the deliciously sexy DLC for this, I’ll be happy.

  • AlphaSixNine

    Thank you XSeed. Keep it up. :)

  • AlteisenX

    All of those hours of me failing at cooking mama have led to this.

    • DeAndre Atchison

      But this has fanservice., so its obviously better

      • Shippoyasha

        Food and sex. The best things in life. Based Takaki.

    • SobriK

      “It’s Ok, Katsuragi will help you!”

      • Kenyah

        “I’m ready”

  • Robert Backland

    What to delete.. what to delete..

  • Tatsumarii

    Bon AppéTIT

    Holy shit that’s clever. I love you XSEED.

  • Monterossa

    I want Burst 1 & 2 for the Vita.

    • AlphaSixNine

      If Marvelous ports them probably. Either way, Estival Versus for Vita is still coming hopefully it’s something like Shinovi Versus with better… “physics” lol

      • specs10

        Was the platform for estival versus confirmed as the vita? Last I heard, the platform was still unannounced.

        • British_Otaku

          It wasn’t confirmed at all, I assume that AlphaSixNine made that assumption based on SV being on the Vita.

          We will definitely have more EV information after SK2 comes out in August. Announcing three Senran Kagura games at the same time was always a little much.

          • AlphaSixNine

            It was said to be on Playstation but not exclusive to one. Likely Vita is one of them.

          • British_Otaku

            However, the game has no confirmed platforms and hasn’t even been formally announced, so it isn’t safe to make any guesses for any one PlayStation system.

            No. Even if it was announced at an event, no images or video, no concept art, no confirmed release window and no absolute game platform makes it not exist to me yet. >_>

            I trust Takaki and Tamsoft to provide the goods, definitely more so than I should but we know next to nothing about the game. That’s that. Vita doesn’t have it confirmed, so we can’t guess that. Likewise for the other systems, till we get word.

          • AlphaSixNine

            It was announced at a special live stream event that EV will be on Playstation but not exclusive to one. Chances it will be on Vita too is pretty high considering there’s only 3 choices here. I’m saying it’s likely but of course not absolute until confirmation. EV sounding like it’s related to SV increases the chances for Vita.


    • idrawrobots

      Shut up.

      • British_Otaku


        So blunt, much retort, Hibari angry.

        I guess I don’t have a productive response for him myself… >_>

      • Monterossa

        I have freedom of speech.

  • max

    based xseed

  • RazeXI

    ..w…wut . _ .

    • Slickyslacker

      Cowtits galore!

      …Trust me, I’m more a fan of mind breaking myself.

  • buddyluv324

    Xseed is REALLY going with the Life and Hometown meme with this series. Has anyone played the Japanese version yet? I heard it was on top of the list in the Japanese PSN but I am curious how the game holds up overall.

    • British_Otaku
      • buddyluv324

        Hmm…the game doesnt sound too bad. It sounds like the game overall is at least decent. A little disappointed with not all of the songs vocalized and the lack of modes ( especially no sort of online mode), but makes up for in sheer content, catchy tones, and more beefed up difficulty.

    • AlphaSixNine

      I bought it. At first the rhythm game part was too easy. Then an update came and I suddenly sucked. It’s challenging now for the most part. The rest is same Sanran Kagura we know and love. lol

      • British_Otaku

        Update as in a 1.01 patch? An extra difficulty? Or the Side B of the game meaning that half of the game is easy?

        • AlphaSixNine

          Not sure which version it was, but the patch came out before Side B was available.

      • buddyluv324

        Sweet! Good to know!

  • Junkogaf

    I’m gonna need the 64gb. :(

    • Takane Shijou

      Hoping that we’d see an announcement about that and maybe even a memory card price reduction. Because as it still stands, that’s still a large barrier in the way for some people to get into the system in general. Especially with how many digital only titles we’re getting lately.

  • specs10

    While I was selecting my siliconera bookmark, I was thinking, “it’s been a while since there was a senran kagura story.” and then this was right at the top of the page!

    I was hoping xseed would localize this, and since they are, I am much more likely to buy some dlc for SV.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Damn Xseed. DAYYYUUUUMMMMM! *_*

  • phayroent

    Hell. Yes. Food and boobs. Get hype. GET HYPE!

  • TheGioG

    And so we come a step closer to wrapping the Western audience in an endless sea of tasty food and bazoons. Just as Katsuragi foretold.
    If you don’t experience Senran Kagura, “Then you will never know bazongas! You have to WANT them! You have to KNEAD them.”

    • Dat Kat lol

    • Kenyah

      Never change Katsuragi, never change :3

      So uhh, who’s that lady on the left btw? I’ve never seen her before so I am curious.

      • Dark_Tzitzimine

        Katsuragi has some serious guts.

        • Kenyah

          I see, thanks.

  • DizzyGear

    Thats it. I’m gonna switch my Vita’s main account to a US one.

  • Kornelious

    WHAT! XSeed announcing a localization of Dekamori Senran Kagura, the game they said they didn’t have any plans for, before Shinovi Versus has released, and before a localization of Deep Crimson………DREAMS CAN COME TRUE! :D
    Being both a niche title from a series of niche titles plus being Digital only made me worried that this wouldn’t be localized. But XSeed proves me wrong again, Hooray! :D

  • konsama

    DAY 1 BUY.

  • ヴィンチェンゾ Vincenzo

    I hope there will be better Vita announcements than this

  • Splinter

    So hyped that I could buy two copies to show my support. Thank you very much, XSEED!

  • I see what they did there lol.

    “Bon AppeTIT” =P

    Thank you Xseed =^_^=

  • British_Otaku

    This will be the first SK to be localised in the same year that it was released in Japan. I hope Europe won’t wait too long for this one, as a digital release, there is very little excuse for us to wait months and months I would think.

  • Kurai Buzzwagon

    This is great and all i just hope europe will get it too but if not i always do ohave a us psn anyways :v

  • tonyp1987

    I wonder that they are gonna sensor or cut anything out like they did with monster masterpiece card game? I hope not

    • Lynx

      Wrong company?

      Xseed had nothing to do with Monster Monpiece.

      • tonyp1987

        I know I meant like I hope esrb doesn’t make them cut stuff out.

        • Lynx

          So again, wrong company.

          That wasn’t the ESRB that cut out the content. That was IFI.

          • tonyp1987

            Wow today I must be off on my info lol but I’m a huge gamer nerd/otaku but sorry for the wrong info

    • Landale

      That concern has actually been addressed

      • tonyp1987

        Thanks I’m gonna add this game to my backlog of vita and ps3 games lol

      • British_Otaku

        Never doubted Xseed for a second.
        Really makes me wonder why no other companies handling similar games have guts like this. Senran Kagura has been welcomed by all rating systems, uncensored with open arms.

        I suppose the game doesn’t step into “taboo topics” as aside from some youthful characters, a lot of costumes tailored to a lot of fetishes but still…

        • Landale

          Yeah age, be it actual or apparent, seems to be the usual issue. As can be seen in that discussion the ages don’t come up in this so this time around they didn’t actually need to censor that detail like they did previously.

  • MasterScrub

    Bon AppeTIT? I see what you did there, XSeed.

  • Zonic505

    This & Shinovi Versus in the same year?!

    • Bob Slim

      Im crying in joy too lol

  • maybe it’s not unfair to start calling them seXseed?

    Joking Aside AWESOME NEWS

  • Raltrios

    As great as this news is, it still seems odd that they’d go for this before even releasing Shinovi Versus. Did Burst really do that well?

    • VolticWind

      I would think every guy 15 years or older with a 3ds bought Burst. It kinda helps that the guys making the series made it to satisfy man’s core desires in life. Sex, food, and sleep.

  • クランベリーハウス

    Omg I read North America as North Korea WTF? I guess it’s the anesthesia wearing off from getting my wisdom teeth removed.

  • Neight Jirachi Simmons

    Xseed is god

  • Nu Blitz

    Time to get my grub on

  • CozyAndWarm

    Never much cared for this game, since it’s just a cheap rhythm game and excuse for DLC money.

    Now we just need Senran Kagura 2, released PHYSICALLY this time

  • hng qtr

    I guess SK 2 localization is pretty much confirmed by this point. I won’t be buying this one though.

  • Prinny Dood

    That was quick but ill pass

  • lel

    Wut but i just bought the japanese version hahaha guess ill get it again when it comes out on NA to give xseed some well deserved support.

  • Izzeltrioum

    Xseedingly baxseed

  • Shadow Rebirth

    with this, i hope other Japanese developers or publishers to starting localizing their games :D

  • MSJ


    Thank the food and boob gods for this one!

  • leingod

    That was… unexpected. And welcome, of course!!

  • Okay, this I DIDN’T know about. XSEED, you sneaky bastages.

    Well, enjoy, SK fans! Hope you guys like… cooking?

  • Kayriss Wins

    Bon Appetit indeed!

  • Bob Slim

    All can say is yes yes yes
    I love you xseed so much good news

  • nonscpo

    Nice I read this story days ago as a rumor on the its so nice to read it as confirmed here.

  • Learii

    XSEED I love you

  • Wafflenaut

    I will be buying this.

  • DS23

    I’m really surprised by this one. It’s quite dialogue/text heavy and is a spin off of a rather niche thing. But hey good on ’em for their commitment to the series/happy boobs I guess.

    • darke

      It may be text heavy, but from what I’ve seen it’s pretty linear and much easier to test then your usual JRPG thing. :)

      I’m guessing the digital part also reduces costs. They probably figure that they’ll get enough sales from those just buying it for the bouncing breasts that it’ll be profitable.

  • Gigan22

    I would have been content enough with Shinovi Versus, but hot damn XSEED, you really know how to make your fans happy.

  • Foryth

    I was actualy more curious about this one than Shinovi Versus, good news I guess!

  • Rinkawa Erion

    Ah….Digital only..? >..<

  • izanagi

    Can someone tell me what based xseed means ?

    • darke

      It means someone’s using nonsensical internet memes. :|

  • Revolver Jesus Super Pimp

    What a tasty treat….

  • nobitakun

    Nobody have read the “as a download title” part? Are you really happy? I can’t believe…are there any vg collector?

    It’s again a pity way to release game. I’m from europe and I feel really sad for this great IP which is receiving what they deserve in japan and I hope they get what they deserve as for the distribution part in the west. Shame on me I could think I could buy a Limited edition with some extras everything physical…

    • Zak Ledward

      The game was a download only title in Japan as well, that’s why no ones complaining.

    • Doctor Nebula

      I’m pretty happy just downloading most games anyhow.

  • Mecha_the_Hedgehog

    Wow this is fast I mean I thought it might come out but not before Shinovi Versus came out that’s kind of a shocker. Oh well looks like I got a good reason to buy a Vita now

  • Zak Ledward

    XSeed being beautiful yet again

  • I hope we get this in the UK too =[

    I’m still interested to hear about Shinovi Versus, (though I platinum’d the Japanese version I would buy it again)

  • Zac Linute
  • Jumbokitty724

    I’m so very excited for this :) Watched some gameplay earlier and it looks so

    bizarre and silly that I couldn’t help but go “Oh Japan”
