Senran Kagura: Estival Versus Update Adds Additional Playable Character for Free

The latest addition to the Senran Kagura series, Senran Kagura: Estival Versus, launched last month in Japan, and today received it’s 1.04 update.

The free update added in a good amount of content, detailed by the series’ producer Kenichiro Takaki on Twitter, including a mecha called a “Puppet Walker” that’s usable in battle, new costume options, and a new playable character in the form of Sayuri, Asuka’s grandmother.

Sayuri though has some crucial differences that make her different from the other fighters, she has no Shinobi Tenshin, has no destructible clothes (Thankfully), and moves exceptionally slowly. Though that doesn’t mean she can’t still lay down a beating the other shinobi.

The update however has since been pulled by developer Marvelous as it had some occasional, pretty severe, bugs.

The series’ producer took to Twitter to ask players to downgrade to the previous 1.03 until the bugs were worked out.

However you can still check out some stills of the upcoming content below, and see Sayuri above.
