The story of Senran Kagura: Estival Versus revolves around the twins, Ryona and Ryobi, who encounter their sister Ryoki, who was supposed to be deceased. The game’s latest video shows exactly how they meet, and the beginning of the eight days they’ll never forget.
The video, titled “The Start of a Most Chest-full Summer,” begins with the very starting point of the game, showing the twin sisters Ryona and Ryobi looking like they’re about to pay a visit to the grave of their deceased sister, Ryoki. As they approach, they notice a little gathering around a bon fire, where a group of girls appear to be holding some sort of ceremony, with some female spirits appearing out of mysterious purple flames.
The old lady is then heard sending off one of the spirits. The twins are shocked when they see the spirit of their older sister Ryoki, prompting Ryona to jump in to tell the old lady to leave her alone.
Ryoki then gets sealed into a coffin, which glows then follows up with an explosion, leaving the two girls on their own. Ryona seems to have a bit of a masochistic side to her, as she exclaims that she enjoyed the pain like none other, and wants to do it again. The two get blasted away, but are determined to reunite with their sister, so they decide to go towards the bright light; however, something approaches them, and the game’s first battle begins at the 7:15 mark of the video.’
The battle footage centers around the more proper and mature sister, Ryobi, who uses a long rifle to smash enemies while shooting them down. After the tutorial fight, Ryona says that they were shinobi they’ve never seen before. Ryobi seems to be a little nervous afterwards, and she gets a tickle from her sister as an attempt to get herself cheered up. In the end, she says that she’s been like that because she doesn’t feel ready to meet her sister again.
In the following scene, the two girls find themselves at a beach, where they also see the coffin open up. Ryoki, who was supposed to have passed away, appears out of it, and she seems just as alive as ever, saying “I’ve come back to life!”
Senran Kagura: Estival Versus will release in Japan on March 26, 2015 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
