Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash announced for PS4 [Update: over 30 characters, PlayStation VR support]
A water gun-based action shooting game.

Image
The latest Senran Kagura game is an action shooting game called Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash for PlayStation 4, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals. It will launch on March 16 in Japan.

In it, players will use a water gun and partake in exciting team battles.

Weekly Famitsu has an outline of the game, as well as an interview with producer Kenichiro Takaki and information on the limited editions and first-print bonuses, but further details have yet to leak.

Thanks, Famitsu.

Update 7:40 a.m.: Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash is a third-person shooter.

Peach Beach Splash is the name of a mysterious water gun tournament from the ancient days in the world of the shinboi. The game disregards entirely the characters’ standpoints of good shinobi or bad shinobi, and their special abilities as shinobi are disabled as victory can only be attained through the use of water guns.
Weapons include dual pistols, Gatling guns, sniper rifles, and various other types of water guns. You can also set cards that grant these weapons skills and special ability effects.

Battles are five-on-five team-based fights using water guns. There is online multiplayer in addition to a story mode, and the game will feature over 30 characters, plus α (Editor’s note: I’m not sure what this is referring to.) The series’ mainstay finishing techniques will also appear further enhanced in Peach Beach Splash.
Here are a few tidbits from Famitsu’s interview with producer Kenichiro Takaki:

- The story of Peach Beach Splash is part of the main storyline. There are plans to develop a new Senran Kagura from this title.
- There will also be a new Senran Kagura action game in the future.
- There are plans to include popular characters and such from the mobile game Senran Kagura: New Wave G Burst.
- Takaki wants to finally put the series in one big world.
- The game is being made so that both beginners and advanced players can enjoy it.
- They are considering the extent that players can intervene when it comes to costume destruction.
- The amount of costumes worth getting wet have increased. There’s also a considerable volume of swimsuits.
- There are plans to support PlayStation VR with some modes. Support may be added in an update after the release.
- There are about 10 types of water guns.
- There are plans for downloadable content that adds stories, costumes, and characters. They want to do collaborations, too.
Here’s what’s in the “Super Limited Nyuu Nyuu 5th Anniversary DX Pack”:

- A copy of the game
- A bonus product card
- Life-sized Nyuu Nyuu mouse pad (Yumi)
- Nana Yaegashi custom-illustrated special box
- Art book
- Soundtrack containing the theme song
- 5 Year Anniversary Commemoration Previous Opening Animations Blu-ray disc

Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash Producer Explains Why it’s PS4 Exclusive; Would Like a Steam Release
The newly revealed Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash is the first Senran Kagura game developed exclusively for PS4, and Producer Kenichiro Takaki told DualShockers the reasons behind that choice during a recent chat.

Takaki-san explained that the graphics are going to be way better (than in the previous games), and he’s planning to include PlayStation VR features. He also mentioned that PS4 is his favorite platform to work with: not only he likes the console, but since the visual level is high, it allows the display of the girls’ cuteness in greater detail.

PS4 Exclusive Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash Gets First Direct Feed Screenshots, Art and Box Art

Image
Today Marvelous Entertainment released the first direct feed screenshots of the newly revealed third person shooter Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash, releasing in Japan exclusively for PS4 on March 16th.

On top of the screenshots, we also get direct feed images of the two collectors’ editions (the Nyuu Nyuu 5th Anniversary DX Pack with its giant oppai mouse pad and the simpler Nyuu Nyuu Pack), of the early purchase bonuses, and of the sketches of quite a few illustrations that will be used for retailer-specific bonuses.

Last, but not least, we also get the box art, that as usual gets really really good, on top of featuring a lot of “plot.” Incidentally, the game’s official site has also been opened.

Story

In the world of shinobi, there is a mysterious water gun tournament that has existed since ancient times.

About those rules…

Whether you’re a good shinobi, bad shinobi, fugitive shinobi, or dead shinobi, your standpoint doesn’t matter. Victory or defeat will be determined with tournament-provided water guns. All of your special abilities as shinobi cannot be used.

The story that starts here is a record of playing in water by the the young shinobi students. What sort of trails will be left on the sandy white beach that continues on forever?

That’s something no one yet knows.

System

Midsummer Battle

At the “Peach Beach Splash” midsummer festival, a battle between more than 30 girls will unfold. You’ll also be able to enjoy side stories of the girls’ everyday lives.

5-vs-5 Team Battles

Girls armed with magnificent water guns will freely bustle about the field. Win by drenching your opponent in water. Aim for the chest and buttocks using your water gun!

Network Battles

Take the battle online in Network Battles, where you can customize your character and water gun. Up to 10 shinobi around the country can play together in team battles.

Special Finish

As bullets of water fly about, the girls’ chests will burst. Finishing techniques are even more extreme in beautifully evolved graphics.

PlayStation VR Support

PlayStation VR support is also planned.

-----

Locker Room

The “Locker Room,” a staple of the series where the girls can go to communicate and change costumes, is significantly enhanced in Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash. Dress up your characters with your favorite outfits including school uniforms, shinobi costumes, yukatas, aprons, and more.

While you can of course change your characters’ costumes, you can also change their hairdo, accessories, and even their underwear. Additionally, accessories can be more finely and easily adjusted than ever before.

Tons of new poses have also been added to the Diorama Mode that appeared in previous games.

There is also a new feature to the Locker Room said to water gun-related, but details will be announced at a later time.

New Costumes: Wetness Equals Transparency

New costumes that getting wet will turn transparent will also appear. The more and more the costume is wet, the more and more transparent it becomes.

Five Basic Types of Water Guns

There are various types of water guns that differ in firing range, mobility, water consumption, power, etc. Today, we’ll look at the five basic types.

By leveling up your water gun, you’ll be able to change both its its abilities and appearance. The same water gun can look vastly different depending on its level.

Assault Rifle

A full-auto shooting type water gun capable of continuously firing water bullets. While its power is not that high, it is unmatched in ease of use.

Shotgun

A water gun that fires several water bullets with a single shot. The power decreases depending on the range of the shot, and the water bullets that fire scatter.

Grenade Launcher

A water gun that fires water balloon grenades. The water balloon that fires will explode when it hits an enemy or terrain.

Rocket Launcher

A water gun that fires water bottle rockets. Its linear attacks are top class, but its reload time is long.

Gatling Gun

A spin-up-type water gun with a gradually increasing firing speed. Its power is more than enough to make up for its damper on mobility.

Just like Estival Versus, this game has that obligatory cheesy dance number! :lol:



You can select your “academy” once you finish the tutorial.



Controls are spot-on, but frame rate takes a nose-dive if the action becomes too chaotic.



Get a pack of (“abilities enhancing”) cards every end of a mission.



A very nice addition is that, you can now select your waifu as the sales clerk in your “suking sari-sari” shop!



Getting “intimate” with Asuka-chan! :mrgreen:

He he... Yep. Still feels like a Senran Kagura game despite being a shooter. You still purchase items for the mission and stuffs in the gallery thru the in-game shop using the in-game currency. Nawala na lang yata yung parang "lotto" para sa swimsuits. :lol: Nandiyan pa rin naman yung "intimate" mode, as you can see above. Ang pangit lang sa pagka-bopols ng mga AI teammate mo eh madalas mo sila ire-revive. Ha ha! :)
