XSEED Games has announced the release date for Senran Kagura Estival Versus via a new trailer that is packed with the game’s signature buxom heroines. The third-person brawler will release for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on March 15 in North America. European gamers will only have to wait a few extra days to play the first console edition of Tamsoft’s action series as it reaches the territory on March 18.
The very M-rated trailer, which can be seen below, focuses on a group of new playable characters called the Overseers of the Festival. This team of Shinobi, which consists of Sayuri, Ryōki, Renka, Hanabi, and Kafuru, resides in a separate dimension from where Senran Kagura has taken place in. Each of the debuting ninjas will have their own set of skills, consisting of several Ninja Arts and a powerful Shinobi Transformation.
All of the Overseers of the Festival will meet up with the series’ regular protagonists in Senran Kagura Estival Versus‘ story mode. As the girls are transported to a new island locale to take part in the Kagura Millennium Festival. What exactly happens at the festival is still a mystery, but we’re sure it’ll include the same fast-paced action that fans have come to expect from the series.
What we do know is that Estival Versus will feature the most playable characters in the series’ history, as over 24 female fighters can be used in combat. All of the characters will also be found in the 108-page art book that comes with the special limited edition physical release. Dubbed the ‘Endless Summer’ edition, gamers can pick up a physical copy of the game for $59.99 on PS4 or $49.99 on PlayStation Vita. Those going digital can get it for 10 dollars cheaper, but will miss out on the aforementioned art book and a set of holographic pin-up cards.
Senran Kagura Estival Versus releases on March 15 in North America, for PlayStation 4 and Vita. With a European release coming a few days later on March 18.
