Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus gets new trailer, gets physical at Gamestop in October
Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus, XSEED Games’ sequel to Senran Kagura Burst, now has a North American release date. The game comes out digitally for Vita on October 14th for $39.99, with a European release the day after.
Though the game is digital, Gamestop is retailing a “Let’s Get Physical” limited edition for $49.99 which comes with a 144-page art book and a 39-track music disc.
According to XSEED Games, “SENRAN KAGURA SHINOVI VERSUS directly follows the events of SENRAN KAGURA Burst, revisiting the fierce rivalry between the girls of Hanzō National Academy and their sworn enemies from Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy, the latter of which have now gone underground and formed a mercenary strike team known as the Homura Crimson Squad. In addition to their old adversaries, the Hanzō girls must also face a whole new set of foes: the students of Gessen Girls’ Academy, who seek to punish them for their shortcomings as shinobi warriors. Meanwhile, a new class is in session at Hebijo, and these students mean business: they oppose all three of the competing factions and will stop at nothing to be the last shinobi squad standing – even if it means leaving broken bodies and shattered dreams in their wake.”
That sounds appropriately wacky for a Japanese game. I never got a chance to play Senran Kagura Burst but from what I hear that’s no less weird.
