Senran Kagura 2 Shows More Pair Battle Action And Costume Posing

By Sato . June 12, 2014 . 1:50am

Marvelous recently shared the latest of Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson with a look at its new and improved costume customization and AR features. Famitsu also shares some of their Senran Kagura love with a look at some action in the upcoming 3DS game.


The video starts out with Asuka going solo and taking on a bunch of enemies on a rooftop stage. Using X and Y buttons for combinations of strong and weak attacks, she puts them together to perform different combos.


She also shows off her transformation to go with some powerful attacks that use up the meter bar against other ninja girls.


At 1:50, the footage shows us a look at some of the game’s pair battle system, where you can see for yourself that having two characters is always better for taking on a bunch of enemies and boss characters. The 3:33 mark shows us one of the special co-op moves.


Finally, at 4:02 we get another look at some of the costume and poses, courtesy of Asuka. She also demonstrates a look at some different weapons at the very end.


Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson is slated for release on August 7, 2014 in Japan for Nintendo 3DS.

  • Shin

    The gameplay looks a lot more fluid now.

    • Erde

      Yeah. Look at the flow. The tides are huge.

  • Suicunesol

    This looks so much better than Burst… wowzers…

    Those breasts have been optimized to Hell and back. I think I’m noticing a little bit less detail in their faces, but only just.

    • Fastchrone

      yup. really looking forward to co-op battle. i hope it has multiplayer mode

    • British_Otaku

      Definitely, the face expressions seem a wee bit less expressive and plain, it is probably a little late (patches aside) to make the game approach Burst in that regard, but how everything else looks tons better I have little reason to complain. I mean, their eyes are down there… >_>

  • fyi1191

    Air special!!
    Yomi looks more fun to use this time.

    • British_Otaku

      Daidouji is the character who really needs saving though.
      I’ll agree that Yomi isn’t as fun as who move and flow a lot better, but she had her moments as the faux-polite Guts of the group, swinging a massive sword getting the job done and getting out alive so she can eat bean sprouts another day.

      Daidouji was strong yes, but she lacked any sense of flow and was incredibly slow.

      • Kayriss Wins

        Regardless, Daidouji and Rin are both broken as all hell ESPECIALLY in Shinovi Versus.

        • British_Otaku

          Are they fun in comparison to the standard girls in the game? There are ways to have god tier characters who have less combat options but aren’t dull to use. >_> SV looks like a big step up to the point, they probably sorted it out there already.

          • Kayriss Wins

            Yeah pretty much every character is fun to use, But Rin and Daidouji are purposely made to be the strongest ones in the game, while Minori is low tier :'( if you looked at it from a competitive view it makes the game seem unbalanced.

          • British_Otaku

            From a competitive view, it sounds notably unbalanced especially if the panty versus mode I heard about revolves heavily around hitting really hard or fast like I assume those two either fall into one of the two or both.

            Since, it isn’t a fighting game primarily, I have no real problem with that, though it may be jarring if the multiplayer experience is good enough that I come back to it a lot.

            Thanks for the info.

          • Kayriss Wins

            Well if your talking about Panty mode, Rin excels in that mode, and so does Ikaruga, Hikage, Imu, and Murakumo simply because they all have amazing ground dashes so they can get around quickly and it’s hard to catch them. Daidouji isn’t very fast so she has a difficult time collecting panties and avoid getting hit.

            Your right though, it’s best to not look at it as a competitive fighter and just play it casually especially if you plan to go online. Regardless of how bad I know Minori is that doesn’t stop me from using her online lol, your welcome btw.

  • hng qtr

    Wait, so we can alternate between characters DKC style? This keeps getting better and better. Now it only needs to have Kiriya as a playable character and allow me to use two of him at the same time.

    • J_Joestar

      well we still don’t know who the 2nd male playable character is going to be so it is possible.

  • D-Omen

    My jaw dropped when Yomi vs Homura moved into the alley stretching far into the background. This is a full evolution of Burst. That’s how sequels should be!

  • darkfox1

    SO much life SOO much hometown… Is this what it mean to be alive!?

  • wahyudil

    my eyes only or this new video really shown a faster and more interesting fighting action than the last video?? After saw this I become interested to try this game …

  • British_Otaku

    So we have foe introduction cutscenes like Bayonetta, Okami or The Wonderful 101 (nice but lack a few presentation chops – hopefully skippable if I played the level again), it looked like an enemy was bounced onto the fourth wall by Yin Asuka (can we transform midbattle now – or just a tutorial thing) and moving far back into the alleyway (Can we take this to mean hidden unlockables on top of the jumping being used for minor movement?)…

    Looking good.

  • TiamatNM

    I am liking those poses

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    Lol that Yomi and Hikage intro, I wonder if Hikage was like “Uhh.. There’s bean sprouts this way” and Yomi was like “Really really? Where where?”

    • J_Joestar

      Hikage seems to attract the most enthusiastic people.

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        Yes yes she does even though she’s so indifferent you’d think they keep away.

  • vileBrenman

    This is looking really good. Especially the character customize and free movement levels

  • Hakai Ouji Vegeta #BADMAN


    • Landale

      I’ve seen your history here, I know you can be more eloquent than that, despite the tendency for one word breast terms posts as well. Please try to avoid the latter from now on, it doesn’t really contribute anything. Thanks.

      • Hakai Ouji Vegeta #BADMAN

        Fine… -___-

  • Prinny Dood

    Now all we need is the US release date dood!

  • Anesia Hunter

    this series seems to be the only game series that makes me want to play in 3D. it’s neat how the enemies also get their clothes destroyed now too (not just the storyline characters.)

    anyways, i was already loving how the gameplay looked from screenshots and after seeing it in motion more now… *starts saving up money to get multiple LE copies for when it comes to NA.*

  • Kroz

    the boob tech is strong with this one…

  • Takane Shijou

    It is nice seeing the game evolve through the iterations, which is usually the biggest problem for a series.

    That being said, really liking the customization in this version of SK. But most of all, really can’t wait for co-op.

  • Looks awesome. Can’t wait =^_^=

  • Zurashii

    Do I see some form of… PLATFORMING? <3<3<3
