posted on by Jennifer Sherman
XSEED Games and Marvelous Games announced on Friday that the Senran Kagura Peach Ball Nintendo Switch pinball game will launch in the West this summer. XSEED Games will release the game digitally in the Nintendo eShop and offer a limited physical release in North America. Marvelous Games will release the game digitally in the United Kingdom, Europe, and Australia. The companies also began streaming the game's opening anime that debuted in August.
XSEED Games describes the game:
Clothes-shredding brawlers, rhythmic cooking contests, sunny water gun fights, massage therapy – what's left for the shinobi students of Senran Kagura to try? Well, there's always pinball! However, Haruka's “experiments,” conveniently located in the local arcade, have once again caused havoc for the girls. This time, her concoction has mentally turned some of her fellow shinobi into animals. The only way to reverse the effects is by using the mystical Peach Ball, which just so happens to fit perfectly in a pinball machine.
Plunge into this new adventure and flip, bump, spin, or ricochet the Peach Ball into the confused shinobi to return them to their normal selves. With customizable tables, special minigames, a story mode, and fan-favorite additional modes including diorama mode and the Dressing Room, Senran Kagura Peach Ball is set to be one of the hottest pinball games yet.
The game shipped in Japan for the Nintendo Switch on December 13. Marvelous and Honey∞Parade Games announced the game in August 2017.
Marvelous established a new subsidiary called Honey∞Parade Games in May 2017 to focus on the production and promotion of the Senran Kagura series. Series producer Kenichirō Takaki heads the subsidiary.
The second season of the franchise's television anime series, Senran Kagura Shinovi Master: Tokyo Yōma-hen-, premiered in October. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired, and Funimation streamed an English dub beginning on November 1.
