Senran Kagura creator retweets Nintendo Direct announcement

Today's Nintendo Direct could very well have some information on the Senran Kagura series. Kenichiro Taka, the producer of the Senran Kagura, has retweeted the announcement of today's Nintendo Direct. As we said yesterday, we usually see developers retweet Nintendo Direct announcements when they have some sort of ties to the presentation itself. Could we be seeing news of a new Senran Kagura game in the Direct, or perhaps localization info?

Senran Kagura creator talks about the Peach Ball presentation shutdown fiasco, says there's a 'good chance' the next Senran Kagura series will hit Switch

Senran Kagura series producer Kenichiro Takaki recently sat down with Inside-Games to talk about all things Senran Kagura. The interview started off with a snippet about the craziness that went on with the first big Peach Ball: Senran Kagura presentation.

For those who don't remember, the presentation featured both gameplay and real-life women who were scantily-clad. At one point, it seems things got too risque, and the presentation was shut down by YouTube. Takaki looks back on the experience in the snippet below.

“We did try to be careful not to get banned, but ended up getting banned in the end… which really isn’t good, but it made me a little happy [laughs]. When we got the ban people on Twitter were like ‘they got banned lol’ so then others were like ‘what, what?’ and then the viewer count for the side that didn’t get banned over at NicoNico went up a lot [laughs].”

Peach Ball wasn't the first Senran Kagura game on Switch, and it appears it wont be the last. When asked if the next Senran Kagura series would come to Switch, Takaki offered up the following.

“I can’t say anything concrete for now, but yeah, there’s a good chance.”

Senran Kagura producer doesn't have concrete plans for another installment on Switch, but can't rule things out

Senran Kagura producer Kenichiro Takaki certainly isn't done making Senran Kagura games, but he's not quite sure where the next installment will take him.

In an interview with Inside Games, Mr. Takaki was asked about plans for another installment on Switch. While he said there's nothing concrete in the works right now, he did state that he can't rule out a new entry on the platform.

Takaki actually said he'd like to work on something with more traditional gameplay mechanics, such as a shooter or action game. He also shared interest in creating an experience that was simple to play. Whether he means something new completely, or a Senran Kagura game that uses these features, remains to be seen.
