There’s a new interview video discussing the Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars crossover, its characters, and other elements of the game. It featured Neptunia series Producer Naoko Mizuno and Neptunia x Senran Kagura Co-Producer Makoto Kitano discussing the game. Things began with how the crossover itself happened, before getting into finer details about its development.
First, Mizuno and Kitano explained that the team wanted to make the next entry in the Neptunia series “Neptune with a ninja theme.” Mizuno also mentioned how Neptune appeared in the Senran Kagura series before. She showed up as DLC in Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash. When the team approached Marvelous, owners of the Senran Kagura IP, it ended up turning into something more. Mizuno also mentioned being briefly concerned that the characters from the two series wouldn’t look well alongside each other in Neptunia x Senran Kagura, but was reassured after seeing them together. Kitano also noted how typically “the guest character is influenced by the game they’re visiting,” but that didn’t happen here.
Here’s the full Neptunia x Senran Kagura interview, which also featured them talking about merging characters and series together and briefly discussed the bath scenes in-game.
Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars will show up on the Nintendo Switch on April 19, 2022 in North America and April 22, 2022 in Europe. It will appear on PCs on May 11, 2022. The game is immediately available on the PS4 worldwide and Switch in Japan.
