XSEED Games fulfilled the dreams of many a Senran Kagura fan today, by announcing that the latest entry in the series, Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash, will be released for the PlayStation 4 this Summer.
In Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash, we find our favorite lady ninjas enjoying a bit of fun in the sun… armed with water guns and skimpy bathing suits. But don’t let the appearance of the game fool you. While there is definitely some heavy fan service afoot, there’s a fun concept behind the bouncy appendages sported by the half-naked ninjas.
In Peach Beach Splash, the ladies of Senran Kagura find themselves forced to participate in a mysterious tournament. In order to win, the ladies will have to use a combination of ten types of water-based weapons. And that’s where the water guns and bikini’s come in. Water gun battles will take place in beach-style arenas, where players can participate in Survival Mode and 5v5 matches via online multiplayer. For those who fancy playing solo, a single-player mode gives players the chance to create a team of five by choosing from a pool of over 30 characters, and then customizing their abilities and weapons, before leading them to battle.
To make things even more interesting, Attribute Cards up the ante, forcing players to put more thought behind their strategies. Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash features over 800 attribute cards, which provide players with summonable pets, weapon improvements, and new skills. During matches, players can use six Skill Cards and three Pet Cards per match, providing these nimble ninjas with unique combos that keep the gameplay fresh and unique.
For now, check out the first screenshots after the break while we wait for Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash to make its PlayStation 4 debut this summer.
