Senran Kagura Producer Wants to Keep Working on Dedicated Portable Consoles

Senran Kagura Producer Kenichiro Takaki celebrates the second anniversary of Estival Versus by pledging his support to dedicated portable consoles.

Today Senran Kagura Producer Kenichiro Takaki is celebrating the second anniversary of the launch of Senran Kagura: Estival Versus, and took the chance to take a stance on portable consoles, based on the success of the game on PlayStation Vita.

“[Today, March 26th, is the second anniversary] It’s been two years since the launch of Senran Kagura: Estival Versus, and it’s thanks to the Senran kagura fans that we can keep releasing new games. For those who got interested in Senran Kagura for the first time with Peach Beach Splash, please take advantage of the deals with the Cherry Blossom Edition on PS4 or the Best edition on PS Vita!”

“It started in Japan with the first 100,000 copies, and now two years later, we’re on about 320,000 copies worldwide between PS4 and PS Vita. Originally, it was 65% PS Vita and 35% PS4, but now PS4 is growing bigger… However, I think that I want to continue [working] on dedicated portable consoles.”

This is certainly good news for Senran Kagura fans who enjoy the series on the go, especially after the recent release of Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash, that launched in Japan exclusively for PS4, and is expected to hit the western market some time down the line as well.

Interestingly, the ending of the game included a tease of a mysterious “Senran Kagura 7” game, and it’ll be interesting to see if that one will land on portable platforms as well.

Incidentally, Takaki-san isn’t the only prominent Japanese developer who expressed support for dedicated portable consoles lately. NieR: Automata Director Yoko Taro also mentioned that he’d like to see a PS Vita successor down the line.
