Senran Kagura localisation hints drop
A couple of hints suggest one or more Senran Kagura games may be heading west.
Localisation specialist publisher XSEED recently acquired the domain name HanzoNationalAcademy.com – the name of the high school in which the series takes place.
The publisher has also begun dropping teases on Twitter – a coloured square which looks like the same shade as the jumpers worn by students at the school.
There are two 2D, side-scrolling Senran Kagura games – Senran Kagura: Shōjo-tachi no Shinei, a 2011 3DS title, and Senran Kagura Burst: Guren no Shōjo-tachi, its 2012 sequel – as well as Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus: Shōjo-tachi no Shōmei, a 3D fighter for Vita, which released this year.
The series was developed by Tamsoft, published by Marvelous, and consistently charts in Japan. It concerns a school for training girls in ninjutsu, and prides itself on providing “fanservice” – ie, lots of preposterous boobs.
