Today Marvelous Entertainment released the first screenshots of its upcoming Senran Kagura spin-off ShinobiRefle: Senran Kagura.

The game features Asuka as the only girl, playing various roles, including little sister, sports club mate, private tutor and idol. The player can interact with her and then touch her in various (relatively safe for work, it appears) ways that will cause different reactions, and a realistic feeling through the HD Rumble feature of the Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Con controllers.

During an event last week, Producer Kenichiro Takaki mentioned that Asuka is normally seen as a rather one-dimensional character, but in this game we’ll be able to explore deeper and more diverse traits of her personality.

As a bonus on top of the screenshots, we also get the direct feed version of the game’s adorable opening cutscene. That’s quite a different Asuka all right.

You can check out the assets below, and if you want to see more, you can enjoy the announcement of Peach Ball: Senran Kagura alongside the first gameplay of ShinobiRefle, the  brand new PS4 game Senran Kagura 7EVEN: Shojo-tachi no Kofuku, the PS4 Remake Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal, and the mobile game Senran Kagura: New Link. All were revealed at an event in Tokyo last week.
