Building upon earlier Senran Kagura video game releases, XSEED Games have announced that the PlayStation Vita 3D action title Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus is now available for purchase in North America. Featuring the girls from both “good” and “evil” shinobi schools, players are taken through a unique storyline following girls from both schools for a total of four distinct viewpoints – complimented with action that fans of the series should expect by now.
Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus directly follows the events of Senran Kagura Burst, revisiting the fierce rivalry between the girls of Hanzō National Academy and their sworn enemies from Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy, the latter of whom have now gone underground and formed a mercenary strike team known as the Homura Crimson Squad. Both sets of girls must also face a whole new set of foes: the students of Gessen Girls’ Academy, a good shinobi school dedicated to completely eradicating all evil and all who willingly fraternize with evil. Meanwhile, a new class is in session at Hebijo, and these students mean business: they oppose all three of the competing factions and will stop at nothing to be the last shinobi squad standing – even if it means leaving broken bodies and shattered dreams in their wake.
By itself, players will be able to take control of 20 unique shinobi masters, each with her own weapons, techniques, special moves and costumes. On top of the single-player game, up to four players can battle online or via ad-hoc connection to determine whom is best in battle.
Marvelous Europe have now released Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus in PAL regions.
