10 years of shameless fanservice action
Today is the 10th anniversary of multimedia franchise Senran Kagura, that’s a full decade of shamelessly naughty cheesecake action, as an army of young kunoichis engage in street-fightin’, home-cookin’, water-blastin’, pinballin’ action.
To mark the occasion, publisher Marvelous launched a special anniversary website alongside a cute celebratory video, which looks back on the naughty franchise‘s 10 years of genre-spanning video games. The party kicked off September 22, 2011, with the Japanese launch of Nintendo 3DS title Senran Kagura: Skirting Shadows. Since then, the series has seen a wide variety of follow-ups and spin-offs, including mobile title New Wave, multiplayer shooter Peach Beach Splash, creepy-as-fuck massage sim Reflexions, rhythm-action cooking title Bon Appetit!, and pinball sim Peach Ball.
Quite the resume.
And this train shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Next month, the buxom roster of Senran Kagura will meet the goofball gals of Hyperdimension Neptunia for the upcoming fighting title Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars, which will launch on PS4 in western territories October 26. Having received multiple manga and anime adaptations — as well as over 10 video games — in just a single decade, only a fool would bet against Honey Parade and Marvelous not continuing Senran Kagura‘s winning ways into the coming years and beyond. The games themselves are decidedly middling, but, for some baffling, indecipherable reason, this franchise just continues to both survive and thrive.
Oh, Daidouji, seeing as you asked.
