When Marvelous Entertainment announced Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus for the PS Vita, I expected a mere enhanced port of the original, 3DS-bound Senran Kagura, maybe with nicer graphics and more content.
What I didn't expect was an entirely different game. Instead of a 2D action-platformer in the vein of Viewtiful Joe, now it's a crowd-brawler in the vein of Dynasty Warriors. And as a Warriors fan, I'm way into that.
Better still, the gameplay trailer above (featuring the septuple-wielding schoolgirl Homura) shows that it actually looks pretty good. And I don't just mean the pretty girls and their destructible clothing. In true super-ninja style, the combat moves at a much faster pace than the typical Warriors or BASARA title.
Of course, there are boobs in it, too.
