XSEED Games began streaming a trailer introducing the characters and release date for its Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus PlayStation Vita game on Friday. The game is slated to ship on October 14.
XSEED Games will release a digital version for US$39.99 and a Limited "Let's Get Physical" Edition with a 144-page art and strategy book, 39-track music CD, and collector's box for US $49.99.
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-. The game is a sequel to its earlier game for Nintendo 3DS, Senran Kagura Burst, which XSEED Games released last November, with Japanese voiceovers and English subtitles.
