Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu included new images and information of Marvelous’ upcoming third person shooter Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash.
We get the introduction of more of the ladies that will compete in the tournament. We get Jasmine (Sayuri), Ryoki, Renka, Kafuru, Hanabi, Kagura, Naraku, Rin, and Daidoji in both her form.
Differently from Daidoji, Jasmine isn’t portrayed in her original form, meaning that Sayuri probably won’t appear. Given the nature of the game, that’s probably for the better.
On top of that, we learn about the modes included in the game. The story mode based is based on the tournament itself, with various enemies awaiting for the player.
Paradise mode includes special comical episodes centered on specific girls, and you can play them with teams of three characters regardless of school affiliation, seeing them interact with each other as a unique feature.
V Road Challenge lets you select girls and form a team to challenge one of four different leagues. Money earned by winning here can be used to purchase new cards.
Ranked Match is the first online mode, with 5 vs 5 battles in which rules and stages are selected randomly. At the end of each match, up to five players are selected as MVP and get better rewards.
Free Match is a mode in which the host player can decide the competition rules, stages, and the number of participants freely. Participants may include not just players, but also AI bots. You can also set a password, letting you enjoy the game with whomever you like.
Cooperative Survival does exactly what it says on the tin, letting you play in co-op with other players and defend from enemies. Teamwork is key, and rewards are earned every time an enemy is defeated.
As a bonus, we learn that in the changing room where you can change costumes you can also shoot at them with water guns, letting you enjoy wet bodies and see-through clothes. You can even decide the color of the water to spray, but details on this will come at a later date.
Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash will release in Japan on March 16th, with a western release also announced, but no actual details on when it will be.
In the meanwhile, you can check out the screenshots below, keeping in mind that they’re from magazine scans, so the quality is far from perfect.
