Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu included a spread on the upcoming PS4 exclusive water gun third person shooter Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash, featuring quite a lot of screenshots, info and artwork about the game.
First of all, we get to see a few returning girls from the series, Yumi, Yozakura, Murakumo, Shiki and Minori.
In addition to those, we also get the introduction of two “new” characters. Mr. K and Miss R.
Mr. K is a masked man who serves as the moderator of the tournament. He exhibits flashy gestures and a shady English vocabulary.
Miss R is a woman with sunglasses who acts as the moderator alongside Mr K. She keeps making rude remarks about the figure of the young participants, probably due to being envious. While the article does not reveal their identity, it’s onbious. Any Senran Kagura fan worth his salt will immediately recognize them as Kiriya and Rin.
We also read about costumes, which will include a large variety of outfits including uniforms, shinobi attire, yukata and aprons. On top of that, when they get wet, they’ll also become gradually see-through.
The game will provide a changing room, that will let you check out on the girls as they dress, enjoy communicating with them or dressing them up with cute and cool costumes. In addition, there will also be another facility dedicated to the water guns, which will be revealed at a later time.
There are several types of water guns that can be used in battle. Water consumption, power, shooting range, mobility and so on are different for each gun, and some are even concealed and not immediately recognizable as water guns. Also, when you meet the conditions to level them up, each water gun ill not only evolve its performance, but also its appearance.
In the gallery you can see the evolutions of five different kinds of water guns: Assault Rifles, Shotguns, Grenade Launchers, Rocket launchers and Gatling Guns. Five more types will be revealed at a later time (you can see a tease with the blue ones under the shotgun evolutions).
Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash will be released in Japan on march 16th, and you can check out the screenshots below.
In case you missed it, you can also watch the sexy opening animation, and our interview with Producer and Boob-master extraordinaire Kenichiro Takaki, that we published back when the game was announced.
