First Home Console Release in SENRAN KAGURA History Goes Gold in North America with a Brand New Trailer Revealing Series Newcomers, the Overseers of the Festival; ‘Endless Summer’ Limited Edition Contents Showcased in Packshot Image
Torrance, Calif.—February 25, 2015—XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that the latest iteration and first home console release in its busty beat-’em-up series, SENRAN KAGURA ESTIVAL VERSUS, has gone gold for its North American release, and will launch on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system on March 15.
To coincide with this announcement, XSEED Games has revealed the series’ newest team of badass beauties, the Overseers of the Festival, in an original showcase trailer for SENRAN KAGURA ESTIVAL VERSUS. This new team of Shinobi fighters – Sayuri, Ryōki, Renka, Hanabi, and Kafuru, who each possess a unique Shinobi Transformation and utilize powerful Ninja Arts – resides in a strange, sunny island paradise dimension that the heroines of SENRAN KAGURA are whisked away to, and operate the mystical Kagura Millennium Festival that beckons new guests to the island.
Additionally, XSEED Games has released a packshot image showcasing the contents of the limited “Endless Summer” retail release of SENRAN KAGURA ESTIVAL VERSUS, which contains a 108-page art book packed full of artwork from the SENRAN KAGURA series, a randomly chosen set of ten 2.5” by 3.5” holographic “pin-up cards” featuring one of the six factions of buxom beauties each in two distinct poses, and a 2-disc soundtrack containing 70 total tracks.
In SENRAN KAGURA ESTIVAL VERSUS, a mystical phenomenon transports the nubile ninjas of the titular series to a parallel dimension to face off against their rivals in a new kind of battle. In this strange world – which resembles a sunny, sandy island paradise – the girls are thrown for another loop as they encounter departed loved ones and ultimately have to decide if they can bear to part from them a second time.
With over two dozen playable characters, making this the biggest roster in the series’ history, SENRAN KAGURA ESTIVAL VERSUS boasts more moves, more story, more attitude, and more destruction online with matches that can support up to 10 players (PS4™ system version only; “PSVita” system supports up to 4 players). All of the series’ previous Shinobi girls return with a host of upgraded moves to master, and new playable characters offer more challenges to conquer, along with a story that’s equal parts sexy and shocking, serious and scandalous, busty and bouncy.
Developed by Marvelous Inc. and Tamsoft and published in North America by XSEED Games, SENRAN KAGURA ESTIVAL VERSUS is headed to PS4™ and “PSVita” systems on March 15, 2016. The limited ‘Endless Summer’ physical release has a suggested retail price of $59.99 for the PS4™ system and $49.99 for the “PSVita” system, while the digital release of the game will be available on the PlayStation®Store for $49.99 and $39.99 respectively.
