Senran Kagura Producer Wants To Narrow The Release Gap Outside Japan



Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson launched in Japan earlier this month, and producer Kenichiro Takaki recently talked to Inside Games on his hopes to see his games reach fans outside of Japan sooner than later.


During the interview, Inside Games mentioned that the series has expanded outside of Japan and asked the producer to share his thoughts on the reaction from foreign fans.


“They’re so passionate, and it always surprises me,” exclaims Takaki. “People from other countries who purchase the game would often take a picture after making their purchase and line it up next to their country’s flag saying ‘check this out’ and then sending it to me.”


He continues, “At first, I thought of it as a specialized product for Japan. I didn’t even think about releasing it outside of Japan. And now, it has expanded across Asia, North America, and Europe, and I’m very grateful.”


“Everyone must like boobs. Boobs go beyond words,” Takaki says with a laugh.


Inside Games adds that they’re looking forward to seeing further developments in foreign countries.


“I’d really like things to expand to where we can narrow the gap between the releases in Japan [and the rest of the world], as much as possible.”


Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson is currently available in Japan for Nintendo 3DS.
