Hmmm dunno how I feel about this but I'll give it a go through, already seen it subbed, and the dub seems to be an interesting mix so to say.

I'm heavily disappointed that they didn't cast Kiriya-sensei yet.

they already have. he says something in the trailer. he's just probably not important enough to reveal who's voicing him

Kinda hoping that this means Shinovi Versus will get a dub.

Although I seriously, seriously doubt it.

They missed a huge opportunity with this show to give us true fanservice. Not even the specials had any nudity whatsoever. Instead it's nothing but a giant silly tease. So it's ironic that Funi still gave it an M rating

To be honest, I actually thought the voices actresses would be best suited for these:
Asuka - Alexis Tipton(Which turns out to be Ikaruga's)
Ikaruga - Caitlin Glass
Katsuragi - Trina Nishimura(Which turns out to be Yomi's)
Hibari - Cherami Leigh
Yagyu - Brina Palencia
Haruka - Jamie Marchi
Yomi - Tia Ballard
Mirai - Brittney Karbowski
Hikage - Lindsay Seidel
Homura - Monica Rial(Which turned out to be the same)

You are right to doubt it, I'm sure Xseed (confirmed localisation for the first installment('s expanded release) in August 2013) would have been in contact with both Seven Seas (had the rights to the manga confirmed in April 2013) and FUNimation (confirmed home video release in December 2013 after streaming it prior) for some time.

If Xseed thought it would be feasible or essential to have an English dub, they would have been in talks for months before Shinovi Versus was announced at the very least. Judging from the limited retail release in the States, they aren't going to go so far with this installment.

On the other hand, I think Senran Kagura 2 and Shinovi Versus' successor known as a PlayStation based "Estival Versus" (with no footage or artwork) stand a pretty good shot at getting a dub or dual audio release if the brand grows stronger thanks to all of the SK media out there.

I think it's really good of them to keep releasing fun ecchi animes like this because they're popular, despite some *cough* people not liking them! Very Happy Go anime industry <3
