"The story of Senran Kagura: Estival Versus revolves around the twins, Ryona and Ryobi, who encounter their sister Ryoki, who was supposed to be deceased. The game’s latest video shows exactly how they meet, and the beginning of the eight days they’ll never forget."

"Beginning with the very starting point of the game, showing the twin sisters Ryona and Ryobi looking like they’re about to pay a visit to the grave of their deceased sister, Ryoki. As they approach, they notice a little gathering around a bon fire, where a group of girls appear to be holding some sort of ceremony, with some female spirits appearing out of mysterious purple flames."

"The old lady is then heard sending off one of the spirits. The twins are shocked when they see the spirit of their older sister Ryoki, prompting Ryona to jump in to tell the old lady to leave her alone."

"Ryoki then gets sealed into a coffin, which glows then follows up with an explosion, leaving the two girls on their own. Ryona seems to have a bit of a masochistic side to her, as she exclaims that she enjoyed the pain like none other, and wants to do it again. The two get blasted away, but are determined to reunite with their sister, so they decide to go towards the bright light."

Transformation:

Throwing their Shinobi scrolls into the air, the girls undergo a transformation similar to Sailor Moon. This unlocks the ability to use their nippon arts. Each art requires a certain amount of scrolls denoted by the icons next to their portrait and health bar.



Updated Dressing Room:

The Dressing Room, where you can change your costumes and communicate with the girls, has been powered up. In addition to new costumes, all the costumes from the previous game have also been renewed. And in addition to “rub” and “tear,” new “whisk,” “pinch,” and “pull” interactions have been added, as well.



Costume Break:

As the girls take considerable damage, their costumes begin to break and shred revealing their undergarments, lingerie, and bikinis. In Estival Versus, when the girls get wet, their undergarments also show through their costumes unlike in previous titles.



Photo Mode:

In Estival Versus, you will be able to pick five characters that appear on your home screen. You can swap them in an out at your leisure as well as dress them in different attire from costumes, to undergarments, to lingerie. Additionally, you can pose them in various stages, poses, and facial expressions.



Purupuru Finish:

Complete costume destruction has been added as part of the new system “Purupuru Finish.” Purupuru Finishes are invoked under specific conditions, and will let you enjoy various situations such as slipping on soap, crashing into an octopus trap, or getting caught in a cherry tree.

We would like to express our thanks and gratitude towards both Marvelous Games and Kenichiro Taka for creating and publishing such wonderful games with beautiful artwork. Without you, our visions of Life and Hometown would be dull and uneventful.

Thank you to xSeed for publishing previous Senran Kagura games in the United States and Europe, we hope to see you on the bandwagon for Estival Versus some time in the near future.

Additionally, I want to personally thank CureVylash for helping me post my first, of hopefully many, Official Threads as well as everyone from the Senran Kagura Community Thread who gave me input on all the custom banners I made and helped me shape this OT to what it is.

====================================================


CureVylash note: As for the thread title...

Wow that's mean. Don't kick any Senrans into soccer nets please.
Except maybe Yumi. Yumi deserves to be bullied, and only her.
Also, Yumi getting bodied at the end, yessssssss
Yumi is bad.

Eat it, Puruzi

Nice OT, I can't wait for the game to come out for PS4 in English. I'm definitely jealous of anyone that is playing the JP version.

Mirai is the best girl.

And as usual: Hometown > Life

Guess it's worth mentioning that (unless it's an unlockable), you can't have more than one of the same character at the same time for the photo mode.

That thread title is worthy a thousand subscriptions.

Wait, why does Play-Asia not mention any of the first print bonuses. Are they for specific retailers only or all first print copies will have that?

There's a wealth of optional specific retailer bonuses I completely ignored. It was getting to be Watch Dogs Chart.jpg level when you consider both SKUs + LEs + bonuses. Pretty silly

I actually just aim for that artbook mentioned here. Didn't know about it since I pre-ordered from PA, and on their page there is no mentioning of such bonuses anywhere..

Additionally, first run copies of the game recieve a two disc soundtrack, a 52-page artbook showing concept art and character bios, as well as a Kafuru (PS4) or Hanabi (PSV) Ultra Rare card for use in Senran Kagura New Wave, a mobile game published by Gree & Mobage.

Great job on the OT. Really looking forward to this, but at the same time my backlog's bigger than Murasaki's
dress
so I'm fine with waiting for the localisation. Day 1 when the PS4 version's released here.

This is glorious. In Yumi we trust.

It's simple, and easy to understand, aside from the story, that is. There is not much to learn, and it's kinda easy to master, too.

Have this pre-ordered for PS4 and Vita.

And call me crazy, but if I don't get a shipping notification by tomorrow morning, I am totally buying this digitally on one of the platforms so I can play it this weekend. ^_^; Play-Asia is currently saying it will be in stock on 3/27 and PS4 already is pre-sold out.

i've just been informed that this game has an online pass in 2015, lol
Are you serious? I can't believe they didn't get enough backlash from SV's online pass, & this was back when games were still doing online passes.

Thank goodness Xseed will most likely remove it when this eventually gets localized.

I hope this gets localized soon! Luckily, I don't even own a PS4 right now, so that might make the wait a little less painful.
