Siliconera caught up with Senran Kagura series producer Kenichirō Takaki, who is bringing Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson and Senran Kagura: Estival Versus to the west. To begin, we jokingly asked him just how big breasts can get before they become a technical issue for the game:
“If they got any bigger than this (he points to the screen where a particularly busty Estival Versus character is leaning toward the viewer) I think that we’d have issues with them popping out over the top of the arm, or maybe having their arm completely clip through their breast! We might need some better machine specs to get those physics right…”
Later during our conversation, we asked him what the hardest breast size to work with is, and he gave quite a different answer:
“Gameplay wise? Hmm, I think that characters like Ryoubi or Mirai are the hardest to deal with because they have small breasts. Since the whole game is based on larger breast sizes, and that’s what the [physics engine] is built around, we actually have to customize the movement on [small breasted characters] to make it work.”
Senran Kagura 2 and Senran Kagura: Estival Versus will both be published in North America by Xseed and in Europe by Marvelous.
