Today Marvelous Entertainment updated the official site of Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash with screenshots, artwork and info aplenty.
We get to see nine characters, Jasmine (Sayuri), Ryoki, Renka, Kafuru, Hanabi, Kagura, Naraku, Rin, and Daidoji in both her forms.
It’s worth mentioning that while other characters (like Daidoji) will appear in both of their forms, there is no image of Sayuri, probably hinting to the fact that she won’t appear in her original form, which is probably a good thing.
We get to check out the dressing room, that will include uniforms, shinobi outfits, gym clothes and more. Characters won’t be limited to bikinis. Different options for accessories, underwear and hairstyles will also be available and it’ll be possible to easily adjust the position of the accessories,
On top of that, the diorama mode will return, with a variety of new poses.
We also get more information on the game modes.
In the Story Mode, there will be a different story for each of the four main schools, Hanzo National Academy, Homura’s Crimson Squad, Gessen Girls’ Academy and Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy. This will expand the tale of the protagonists.
Paradise Mode lets you enjoy comedic episodes featuring specific characters, letting players enjoy new sides of the girls beyond team boundaries.
V Road Challenge lets you choose a team of your favorite girls and aim to win four different leagues: School Cup, Honey Cup, Queen Cup and Venus Cup. Winning lets you obtain items like cards and in-game currency.
Of course there are also online modes. In Ranked Mode you fight in 5v5 matches with rulesets and maps decided randomly. You earn a number of PP (Peach Point) that set you on an official leaderboard. The higher your class, the better rewards you get.
In Free Mode the host players sets rules and stage. He can decide number of players from 1v1 to 5v5, and it’s also possible to include AI bots. You can make your own lobby, or search and enter in other people’s lobbies. You can password-protect your games, and play with friends only, if you want.
Cooperative Survival is basically a sort of horde mode that prompts a team to protect an objective from enemies that continuously appear. Every time you annihilate a wave of enemies you get rewards. You can host your own match with rules you set, or joining others’. You can even join matches that are already ongoing to help.
