Senran Kagura’s New Switch Game Is “Pure” And Will Only Feature Asuka

Recommended Videos

We recently learned about Marvelous’ new Switch title Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura, and booby producer Kenichiro Takaki shared some more thoughts in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]

 

Highlights from the interview:

 

  • Takaki finds the Nintendo Switch’s HD Rumble feature especially fascinating. He expects to be able to do all kinds of different things that weren’t possible with previous rumble functions.

 

  • If you’re wondering what they’ll be doing with the HD Rumble function on Shinobi Refle, Takaki says he’ll leave it to your imagination for the time being.

 

  • Marvelous is going for a pure and wholesome Senran Kagura game with this one, and one big objective is to use the HD Rumble to better communicate character emotions.

 

  • You can expect the story to be a bit on the silly side, but something you’ll get to enjoy differently than before.

 

  • Shinobi Refle is a concept title that uses the HD Function as a base, and will be available for an affordable price as a download-only title.

 

  • Only Asuka will appear as a character.

 

  • They’re working on Asuka’s graphics from scratch. While keeping its anime style, they’re hoping to beautifully show its lighting as well.

 

  • Currently thinking about using Switch functions other than the HD Rumble.

 

  • Takaki says the Switch is incredibly easy to develop for, and is thinking about other titles that can use the Switch’s functions.

 

Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura is expected to release in Japan in 2017 for Nintendo Switch.
