One of the biggest new features in Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson is the Pair Battle system that lets you tag-team any of your favorite ninja girls to take on enemies. In the game’s latest trailer, we see just that with some popular duos, and an extra scene with the new characters.
The trailer begins with Senran Kagura 2’s poetic prologue, which we previously translated in our earlier report, followed by a look at Asuka and Homura who pull off some pair battle moves. Following that, we get to see tag-teams of Ikaruga x Yomi, Katsuragi x Hikage, Yagyu x Mirai, Hibari x Haruka, and the powerful duo of Daidoiji x Rin.
At 2:52, Marevlous show us another look at Senran Kagura 2’s “Nyu Nyu DX Pack” limited edition and its bonus items, and a look at Ikaruga’s older brother Murasame who can be unlocked with a save data from Senran Kagura Burst or through DLC.
The trailer ends with a scene featuring the two new characters, Kagura in white and Naraku with green hair, who seem to be making an escape from a group of enemies.
Naraku seems pretty dedicated to protecting Kagura, as she says that she’ll protect Kagura at all costs, even if it means losing her life. That she was born to do just that.
Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson is slated for release in Japan on August 7, 2014 for Nintendo 3DS. First-print copies will also come with some pretty cool stuff.
