Senran Kagura Confirmed for Switch

Life, Hometown, and HD Rumble

While yesterday’s Nintendo Direct extinsively covered upcoming Switch games like Arms and Splatoon 2 for the West, Japan’s Direct featured content that the rest of us may have missed – including the conformation of a new Senran Kagura title.

The minute-long video didn’t tell us too much about the new SK game, currently going by Shinobi Rife: Senran Kagura, but we did learn one crucial thing – it’s going to make use of the Switch’s HD Rumble feature. Most of the video featured SK series creator Kenichiro Takaki an and unnamed assistant engaging in some rather amusing activities, including messing with with flan, and simultaneously squeezing water balloons while playing around with a JoyCon. Nothing’s been set in stone yet, but I’m sure most of you out there can figure out what all of that’s leading up to. If you’re interested in Takaki’s… erm… “scientific research”, you can check out the video for yourself below.

Nothing else has been confirmed so far, but with the upcoming release of Peach Beach Splash, it’s surprising to see another game being confirmed this quickly. What are your thoughts on the latest Senran Kagura development? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
