SENRAN KAGURA 2: DEEP CRIMSON GOES GOLD
XSEED Games, the independent-minded console publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that the highly-anticipated SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson has officially gone gold. This latest 2.5D beat-’em-up adventure featuring the naughty-yet-nice SENRAN KAGURA ninja girls is now available for pre-order, and will arrive in North America exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system on September 15. The game will be available digitally via the Nintendo eShop for $39.99, as well as in a limited “Double D Edition” retail release for a suggested retail price of $49.99, the latter of which includes two music discs containing a total of 60 tracks and representing the game’s entire score.
Once again showcasing the series′ trademark high-flying, clothes-ripping battle mechanics, SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson follows the events of SENRAN KAGURA Burst, sending all 12 of the original cast members on another supernatural martial arts adventure through modern Japan. For the first time in the series, shinobi can fight in pairs, covering each other’s backs and combining special techniques as needed, or fight alone to give their partners time to recover after bouts of intense combat. One player can control both team members, switching back and forth at will, or two players can fight side by side in local or online co-op mode.
To celebrate this announcement, SENRAN KAGURA Burst will be on sale for $19.99 on the Nintendo eShop (down from the usual $29.99 price) starting today and lasting through September 14th. Players who have SENRAN KAGURA Burst save data on their SD card will receive Ikaruga’s brother Murasame as a playable character for free, while players without this save data can still purchase everyone’s favorite incompetent ninja for $4.99 as premium DLC. XSEED Games is also sharing a loaded package of assets, including a brand new trailer and screenshots, to time with this announcement.
