SENRAN KAGURA Peach Ball Announced for Western Release

UK based European games publisher Marvelous Europe, as well as North American games publisher XSEED Games, have announced that the latest entry in the genre-spanning SENRAN KAGURA video game franchise, known as SENRAN KAGURA Peach Ball, will be released onto the Nintendo Switch this Summer.

Unlike past SENRAN KAGURA games, which have focused more on 3D Combat gameplay, SENRAN KAGURA Peach Ball is a brand new type of SENRAN KAGURA experience that focuses on Pinball. In this case characters featured in SENRAN KAGURA Reflexions (which is another Nintendo Switch game) have been accidentally turned into animals (furries) and the only way to return them to normal is by hitting them with the ‘Peach Ball’. The result is a combination of quirky pinball gameplay (including all of the pinball madness you would expect) with the colourful cast of characters from the SENRAN KAGURA franchise.

Additional release details for both regions will be confirmed at a later date; but in the UK, Europe and Australia (via Marvelous Europe) SENRAN KAGURA Peach Ball will be released digitally onto the Nintendo eShop, while in North American (via XSEED Games) it will be available digitally from the Nintendo eShop as well as a limited print-run physically from select retailers.

About SENRAN KAGURA Peach Ball:
So…this is going to take some explaining. Haruka, the mad scientist of Homura’s Crimson Squad, is up to her usual experiments again, brewing up mysterious concoctions with unknown effects. Unfortunately for her fellow shinobi, she’s chosen the local arcade she works at as her laboratory, storing her experiments in the bathroom. After an accidental outbreak infects five of her shinobi friends, she learns that her latest concoction can transform those exposed it into animals, at least mentally.

Now, with Asuka, Yumi, Yomi, Ryona, and Murasaki causing wild havoc in and around the arcade, Haruka has devised a way to return these shinobi to their senses – the mystical Peach Ball. Applied to a subject’s body repeatedly, with the proper vibrational force, it can undo the effects of her experiment. Conveniently, it’s just the right size for a pinball table. Now all Haruka needs is a skilled assistant to operate the table, bopping each shinobi girl with the ball until she comes around.

SENRAN KAGURA Peach Ball is planned for a Summer 2019 release with further release details to be confirmed at a later date; in the meantime the announcement trailer – which is the games colourful opening animation – can be found below.
