Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson Balancing And Bug Patch Already In The Works

By Spencer . August 15, 2014 . 1:40am

imageSenran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson came out in Japan last week and sales were low for Marvelous’ key franchise. On top of that, the Nintendo 3DS game shipped with bugs.


Senran Kagura producer Kenichiro Takaki tweeted that they are in the middle of checking out bugs and are planning to release a patch. In addition to fixes, they are planning to fine tune the game’s balance too. If everything goes well, Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson version 1.1 will be released this month.

    Maybe they’ll pack it with some DLC goodies to make it worth the while on top, as a service for those fans who felt it was too buggy.

    Though it’s not the same deal as Valkyria Chronicles 3 Extra Edition that had all the DLCs, I hope this helps the sales of the game.

      Senran Kagura Burst was sort of a one-off as I understand it, but I wouldn’t mind a Senran Kagura 2 Burst/Extra Edition with all of the DLC, another story and the abillity to play as more folks.

      Anyway, Senran Kagura 2 already has some DLC coming:

      I don’t expect them to sweeten the patch with more content, but it would be good. Usually patches are just what their description says and if no one says what the problems are, they are minor (I have heard no one say what is wrong with this game – but I have experienced glitches with SK2011 and Burst).

        I get what “Bu(r)st” and “the-one-I-can’t-read-on-the-right” DLC are, but what’s the Hipster’s contents?

        • Hinataharem

          I can’t tell you about contents, but the one you can’t read is Waist Deep

    Playable Naraku and Kagura please!
    Naraku and her balls are just too awesome to ignore, and bubble gum attack.
    If Murasame is the reason they didn’t get playable slots…I will…ARG…

    • Kayriss Wins

      Those characters aren’t playable to begin with?! aww…. now I’m sad…

    • British_Otaku

      Murasame didn’t take any character slots, save your irrational thoughts for Smash Bros character announcement.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    God please let them make the balance tweaks optional. I love how challenging it is now, makes it so much more fun.
    Though I wouldn’t mind them toning down each character’s strength when controlling 2 characters, or pull back the camera a bit.

    • I saw you guys talking about the difficulty in the sales column earlier. It really doesn’t seem like anyone is paying it too much mind. This game is getting consistently decent ratings on Amazon. It’s sitting at 3.7 right now.

      Granted we don’t have any actual data, unlike Marvelous, but I wonder if a difficulty patch is actually warranted. Bug fixes, of course, are a necessary thing.

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        Yomi is ridiculous towards new players and well even returning players for the first time,that’s the one of the big ones that needs to be toned down a bit.

  • Nonscpo

    Hope that the bug fixes are in place before they localize this title, cause I hate knowing that the patch already exist and still get stuck waiting for it after the game hits retail.

    • Eder García

      it will be fixed for sure, no need to worry

  • niko

    I’m not sure balancing is a problem. The pacing is very poor. They changed up some of the controls, and throw you right into the fire. So if you’re a new player, it’s really hard. If you’re a player from the first game, it’s super jarring to have to relearn on the fly during difficult boss fights.

    It’s a good game though, i’d recommend. Great fun.

    • CozyAndWarm

      Well, it IS a numbered sequel. I don’t think it’s too unreasonable to expect players to be familiar with the controls.

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        Nah nah even for those who just got done with burst if you haven’t played shinovi then you probably won’t have a good feel for it

      • niko

        That’s the thing, if you played Burst the controls feel off. So it’s really too hard at the beginning, it doesn’t give you a chance to feel it out first.

  • I dont like the boxart it looks weird, heh this and atelier shallie both ship out with many bugs huh? Quality assurance where?!
