Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus PS Vita Game Heads West
posted on by Karen Ressler
Video game publisher XSEED Games announced on Thursday that it will bring Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus West on PlayStation Vita this fall. The game is a sequel to its earlier game for Nintendo 3DS, Senran Kagura Burst.
XSEED Games describes the story:
Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus immediately follows the events of Burst, revisiting the fierce rivalry between the girls of Hanzō National Academy and their sworn enemies from Hebijo Clandestine Girls' Academy, the latter of which have now gone underground and formed a mercenary strike team known as the Homura Crimson Squad. In addition to their old adversaries, the Hanzō girls must also face a whole new set of foes: the students of Gessen Girls' Academy, who seek to punish them for their imperfections as shinobi warriors. 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.
The game shipped in Japan in February 2013 under the full title Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus -Shōjo-tachi no Shōmei-. XSEED Games released Senran Kagura Burst last November, with Japanese voiceovers and English subtitles.
