Plunge into this new adventure and flip, bump, spin, or ricochet the Peach Ball to return the shinobi to their normal selves. This will be one of the hottest pinball games yet, with customizable tables, special minigames, a story mode, and fan-favorite additional modes including Diorama Mode and the Dressing Room. SENRAN KAGURA Peach Ball will launch for Nintendo Switch™ in North America on July 9 with the Accessories Galore set included as part of the base game, adding 30 bonus accessories for free! The title will be available digitally on the Nintendo eShop for $39.99, while a limited physical release with an exclusive new box illustration will contain previously unannounced bonus stickers featuring the girls in their animal form.
