One of the features that Nintendo’s newest hybrid console, the Switch, is bringing to the market is HD Rumble. A new technology that will give the most accurate rumble sensations ever in a console. Well, Senran Kagura producer Kenichiro Takaki is announcing that he will be making full use of the new feature in an upcoming Senran Kagura game for the system.
At the most recent Japanese Nintendo Direct, a new Senran Kagura game, tentatively titled Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura, was announced for a 2017 release. The game will feature heavy use of the advanced HD Rumble and Takaki has shown off his impressive research to ensure that players will get the best experience possible in the upcoming game.
Here is the full announcement and ‘research’ video:
Remember Takaki? He is the lead producer (and self proclaimed Righteous Boobage Producer) of the Senran Kagura series with firm beliefs about his games’ message. He is also quite known for this message in the release of Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus:
He also discussed the issue of producing characters with small breasts over large breasts in a previous interview.
Senran Kagura was first conceived as a side scrolling action game on the 3DS. Developed by Tamsoft in 2011, the series has garnered some popularity in Japan of taking the female bust to such lengths, with the director deciding that the thing people needed to see the most in 3D on the Nintendo 3DS were boobs. Since then, the series grew into a franchise with numerous manga adaptations from different artists that focused on different characters, as well as sequel and spin-off video games on 3DS, iOS, Android and PlayStation Vita. An anime adaptation was also produced by Artland in 20113, and aired from January till March that year.
Here is a synopsis of the series:
There was a time when there were ninja serving the powerful, hired for intelligence missions, destruction, or assassination. While the times have changed, the need for ninja has not vanished. In a particular school, there are girls who are secretly in training to become ninja. Ninjas-in-training, Asuka, Katsuragi, Hibari, Ikaruga, and Yagyuu each have a secret technique scroll that they protect at all times. This features their tumultuous school life as they pursue the path of the ninja!
A new Senran Kagura game has been announced for the Nintendo Switch, tentatively titled Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura, and is set for a 2017 release. The game will utilise the system’s HD Rumble technology to the fullest. Further details about the game will be revealed throughout the year.
