Let's get PHYSICAL: SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson by Aisha Anime

sk ltd ed

Marvelous Europe is proud to announce that the hit ‘SENRAN KAGURA’ franchise will return to the Nintendo 3DSTM this summer with ‘SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson’. Fans can look forward to more fast-paced beat’em up fun with a host of eye-popping new features, returning character favourites, insane combo chains, hilarious cut-scenes and an abundance of tantalising action available to buy in limited physical copies as well as download.

As a part of the launch, Marvelous Europe has today unveiled an exclusive pre-order website for those people who prefer to own their games physically. The publisher is offering various packages, including special limited edition skus which will be sold exclusively through Marvelous Europe’s dedicated site - SENRAN KAGURA 2 official site. That’s right, these will not be available in shops.

Other recent releases from Marvelous, including Rune Factory 4, have been digital only, while American gamers have been able to secure physical and limited edition versions.

“We know from listening to our fans on Facebook, Twitter and on our forums, that, while many like downloadable games, a lot of them prefer physical product.” noted Jonathan Nevill, Marvelous Europe’s Product Manager.


SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson

SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson is the western title for ‘SENRAN KAGURA 2: Shinku’ as released in Japan, August 2014. This new game continues directly from the events of SENRAN KAGURA Burst - and closely follows the story and rivalries of the Hanzo & Hebijo Academies.


Pair Battles - For the first time ever, two shinobi warriors from opposing academies must fight together, and the dual character combo system allows for spectacular and devastating joint attacks.

Improved graphics and stellar audio -The graphical improvement from ‘Burst’ is dramatic, with full 3D environments, improved animations and a better framerate! This is combined with original Japanese voice-overs to create a gorgeous experience all-round.

Local & Nintendo WiFi Co-op mode - For the first time in the series, two players will be able to join forces and play the story or special missions together via ad hoc multiplayer or online.

Improved Dressing Room - The dressing room is stocked with hundreds of items, and this time up to two shinobi can be present in the dressing room at once! Also, for the very first time in the series you can pose the girls in a variety of positions, and even pose them in real life environments using the Nintendo 3DS' built-in camera!

SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson is developed by Tamsoft together with Marvelous Inc. of Japan for the Nintendo 3DS system. In Europe the game will be published by Marvelous Europe in Summer 2015. XSEED Games will be publishing the title in North America in the same release window as a digital release via the Nintendo eShop as well as in a limited run “Double D” retail release which will include a two-disc soundtrack.
