Marvelous established its Honey∞Parade Games subsidiary company on May 9. The new company's main focus is the production and promotion of the Senran Kagura series, but it also aims to create "next generation" IP. Takaki, who previously established the Honey∞Parade Games studio within Marvelous, now serves as representative director for the new company.
The Senran Kagura franchise began with the release of the original game on the Nintendo 3DS in September 2011. The games inspired a television anime in 2013. Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and released it on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in 2014.
The latest game release in the series is Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash, a PlayStation 4 game that shipped in Japan on March 16. XSEED Games will release the game in North America and Europe this summer.
