Following the reveal of Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash, new information has surfaced on Marvelous’ upcoming PS4 action shooter from this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. [Thanks, Hachima.]
“PBS” (Peach Beach Splash) is the name of a water gun tournament that has been around in the world of shinobi since ancient times.
The tournament revolves around team battles that use water guns, and the differences are set aside between the good and bad. In this tournament, the shinobi aren’t allowed to use special skills, and everything is decided with a water gun.
Water guns come in various forms. There are dual-wield pistols, gatling guns, sniper rifles, and many others. These weapons have special attack effects that are set through cards. The water gun battles are done in 5 vs. 5 matchups and plays in third-person shooter style.
Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash offers story mode along with online multiplayer, and it offers over 30 playable characters. It features new and improved finishing moves that we’ve seen throughout the series, and you can expect to see gorgeous costume break scenes as well.
Here are some highlights from the interview with Kenichiro Takaki:
