Senran Kagura series producer Kenichiro Takaki shared some info in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine about his recently opened studio, Honey ∞ Parade Games” that is working on Peach Beach Splash as its first title with more PS4 games to come. [Thanks, Hachima.]
The magazine reveals that Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash will have a paid DLC when the game releases that brings “awakened” forms for Yumi, Miyabi, Asuka, and Homura:
- Ice Queen Yumi
- Portrait Asuka
- Abyss Miyabi
- Crimson Homura
Details on these “awakened” forms still remain unknown.
Here are some notes from the interview with producer Kenichiro Takaki:
- Kenichiro Takaki launched his new studio, Honey ∞ Parade Games” and their first title is Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash.
- This change comes after the Senran Kagura series’ scale has increased, they’ve made Takaki’s division into its own brand.
- This studio won’t be exclusive to the Senran Kagura series and they’re looking to release all kinds of fun titles.
- There are seven characters for its logo, and it has the meaning of “creating the seven titles.” For now he has a basic idea for the seven titles in mind, and they’re looking to solidify it as a team.
- The reason they went with the PS4 for Peach Beach Splash is because Takaki realized the PS4 can present a “see-through” look from wet clothing. That’s the reason it’s only on PlayStation 4, as it can’t be represented the same way on PS Vita.
- If given the opportunity, Takaki would like to take on other genres.
- The story continues after Estival Versus. While some may think of it as just a spinoff, it actually has some important element that paves the path to a new story for the series.
- There are only plans for a locker room feature for PSVR, but it’ll have to be through a post-release update.
- You can change the locker room shower colors, but white and other colors will need to be purchased via DLC. Takaki wants this to be something that is bought only by gentlemen who understand.
- There are plans to make more PS4 games for the series.
Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash releases in Japan on March 16, 2017 for PlayStation 4.
