Senran Kagura: Estival Versus Will Have Its Own Pair Battle System

By Sato . September 2, 2014 . 5:36am


Marvelous recently announced that Senran Kagura: Estival Versus is headed to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita during the SCEJA press conference. This week’s magazine reports share some more details on the upcoming game. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]


According to the report, Senran Kagura: Estival Versus will introduce four new characters. Three of them are mysterious sisters named Renka, Hanabi, and Kafuru. The fourth one is… a mysterious granny, named Sayuri.


The PS4 version of the game is confirmed to have online multiplayer. Series producer Kenichiro Takaki says that there will be something similar to Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson’s Pair Battle system in the game, too.


Meanwhile, as far as competitive multiplayer goes, it is based on Shinovi Versus, and the team expects to add more rules and the total amount of players that can compete.


Marvelous are currently working on adding new things like having costumes go transparent or getting dirty, with the intent of creating a different look, this time around.


Senran Kagura: Estival Versus will release in Japan for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on March 26, 2015.

  • tonyp1987

    I hope that localize this because I already pre-ordered the Shinovi Versus physical edition for vita already cannt wait!!!!!

    • subsamuel01

      Same, game comes out at the end of the month can’t wait.

  • JMaster3000

    Has Marvelous made any PS3 game?

    • Raziel Kõbe

      No More Heroes Paradise and Rune Factory Ocean

  • JuVu

    Well, there most certainly will be a pair system allright. Many of them.

  • OutlawStar26ep

    “new things like having costumes go transparent or getting dirty”
    Sounds like the “dirt physics” from DOA5 where the characters get dirty or wet from interacting with the environment. Wonder if this has anything to with the DOA and Senran Kagura collaboration.

    • John Hayabusa

      >DOA and SK collaborating
      I hope it is. It is like a dream come true.

    • British_Otaku

      It would also like it if hats could be knocked off characters or something, I can definitely get behind that element in DOA5 or Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (play that more) but having items not behave as if they are glued to you is more interesting than being nipple teased even more.

  • Sol badass

    Imagine those boobs on ps4…

  • fyi1191

    The new girls better be playable, even the grandma is welcome. We don’t really want the way they did for Deep Crimson.

  • RagingTiger44

    Playable granny in a game with costume destruction…cannot unsee.

    • darke

      No doubt ‘granny’ in the anime/manga sense where she’ll look about 30. >.>

      • leingod

        Yeah, 30 is like… decrepit in anime terms.

      • RagingTiger44

        Makes sense. I just remembered Tsunade from Naruto.

        • Luis Edgar Flores Gutierrez

          Or Cattleya from Queens Blade

    • fyi1191

      Young transformation jutsu. I’m looking forward to Hanzo VS Sayuri, grandpa vs grandma.

  • MKSubzero

    I honestly would rather have a sexy badass grandma than a dude. A granny is fine anyway.

  • Göran Isacson

    Oh man. They’re going to take bounce physics to the next level: saggy bounce. We shall all go that way, one day…

  • indra jaya

    grandma? sexy grandma? okay i cant wait to see her in action :)

    • Digidyne017

      Its Senran Kagura, I’m pretty sure they’ll find a way to make us all MILF lovers..

      • koko

        If she’s a grandma won’t she be a GILF?

        • Digidyne017

          I would say GMILF

  • NeptuniasBeard

    I always thought the series had a pretty nice “pair” system already, but I guess another won’t hurt

  • James Reilly

    “…having costumes go transparent or dirty”

    Ah I see why there is DoA collaboration.

  • In this type of game even though they said “Granny” all I can do is picture someone like Tsunade from Naruto lol

    • AndyMAX

      With bigger boobs.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      yes oppai granny

    • MaximDualBlade

      its a plot granny of course

  • Chardo

    Even if it was a little broken, the multiplayer in shinovi versus was the most fun part for me, so if they are considering on improving it on estival versus, just like they improved the gameplay in crimson, im really happy.

  • Mind0105A

    First day buy for me.

  • Izanagidonutz

    Bit upset they changed from PS3 to PS4….. but now I have a reason to get a PS4.

    • specs10

      I don’t think they ever announced anything for PS3.

      • Izanagidonutz

        They did early when they first announced this game I recall.

        • Niles Schwarz

          All they said was the game will be for “multiple playstation devices”

        • Noire Yoshida

          Nuh uh, when the game first got announced, they only said it was multi-PS and they weren’t revealing the systems until later

  • WhyWai

    Im gonna buy it for both Vita and PS4

  • British_Otaku

    Glad to see at least one key element from Senran Kagura 2 make it in any way, the big one is always going to be when will New Wave get bigger representation for some though.

  • Aristides

    They need to do wet t-shirt cloth effects/physics that would really show the power of the PS4 X3.

  • Kayriss Wins

    I hope those new characters are playable, Like most Senran fans I’m still hoping for extra factions from New Wave to get in. he’ll, throw in Naraku and Kagura as playable characters too for an added bonus that would be FANTASTIC!

  • TheSwordUser

    With all these improvements, Senran Kagura Xtreme Beach Volleyball seems like a logical next step for them.

    …they made a cooking game where they serve naked girls, so why not?

    • darke

      Makes more sense then the DoA one I guess?

    • A more in depth version of DoAX with actual poker? I’d buy that immediately.

  • Bob Slim

    Just give me more new wave characters.
    That granny better have a young side to her. I dont want to play with a old lady

    • Zak Ledward

      Shallow, but exactly what I’m thinking

  • Pdugna

    Sorta wonder how this will fare after how much Senran Kagura 2 did =/, Hope for the best and for it to be localized here.

    • It’s kind of a franchise now. Most fans would expect Marvelous to localize them, since we already have the 3DS and upcoming Versus game on the VITA.

      Fans would be really disapointed if they decided to drop the balls :S

      • PenguinPlayer

        Yakuza was also a franchise with a cult following in the west, but that didn’t help it much in the eyes of SEGA.

        Then again, SEGA seems to be the blindest, stupidiest japanese publisher, so they aren’t exactly an example concerning how JP game publishers and developers think.

  • Kornelious

    The PLOT must be seen with Next-Gen graphics! <3
