A Look at Multiplayer and Sayuri’s Hot Young Form in Senran Kagura: Estival Versus

Marvelous has shared some more concrete details for Senran Kagura: Estival Versus‘ three iconic online multiplayer modes.

As we covered in our previous report, the game supports up to a staggering ten players online via multiplayer on Playstation 4, with only four players on PS Vita.

You can find the new preview below:

Point Battle

You can earn points via certain actions like eliminating enemies, or getting successful hits. The winner is decided upon via either getting enough points (a point based match), or by getting the most points in a timed match.

Panty Collection Battle

As you can expect, this mode is entirely focused on collecting panties as they fall down from the sky. You can prevent other players from gathering panties by attacking them, and if you manage to bring down another player, they’ll drop all the panties they’re currently holding.

As with the point battle, there are two methods of winning – getting the required number of panties, or getting the most panties within the allotted time limit.

Capture the Brag

This mode is a play on words in a very literal way. The traditional flag is replaced with a Brag, or a “bra flag,” which you have to hold on to for as long as possible.

As you defeat enemies, more bras will be attached to the flag, increasing its value, and strengthening whoever is holding the flag. The winner is ruled out via whoever gets the most panties, or whoever is holding the flag at the end.

Marvelous has also given us another look at Sayuri (you can find our previous report here), and a brand new character, Jasmine.

Sayuri

“Prepare for the Kagura 1000-Year Festival, young Shinobi.”

Sayuri is the wife of Hanzou, the founder of the Hazou Academy as well as being Asuka’s grandmother. She’s powerful enough to even put Hazou into check, instilling fear with her enormous strength, although she has a soft spot for Asuka. She’s been traveling around Japan recently with the Mikagura sisters, as a priestess of the Kagura Festival. She was once fought over by Kurokage, leading to Hanzou regularly fighting him many years ago.

Jasmine

“I’m very serious now. When you see me acting like this, call me Jasmine!”

Jasmine is the Shinobi Tenshin form of Sayuri. While the other girls simply have their clothing changed, Sayuri’s Tenshin form also drastically changes the age of her body, giving her more control over her unleashed power. In this new form, her weapon of choice is her pipe, which she uses to great force via blowing smoke at her enemies.

    Yay, I hoped Sayuri would be playable.

    … I’m not using the dress up room for her though. My eyes might become more defective than they are already.

  • Anonymous

    So she’s a GILF

  • Genjo

    i guess they added her since they wanted please ppl who like old girls :P

  • TheCynicalReaper

    I have to admit, this is probably going to be my next favorite Senran just for uniqueness alone. I’m really excited to play as her. I also wonder what her transformation will look like
    I hope it doesn’t…z-zoom in too much on her before she gets into her younger form

  • Mr0303

    Those are some mighty creative names. It is a bit optimistic but I hope we get the game in the West by the end of the year.

  • MXC

    Believe me when I say that is a thing nowadays

  • Nin

    Well, if you get married, you’re sorta forced to obtain a fetish for old people sooner or later. What could go wrong with sooner?

  • Anonymous

    It’s gonna zoom and you’re gonna see her in all her glory and you will like it.

    Age Transformation… Sorely disappointed that it isn’t a separate character, but whatever more Rie Tanaka. Thank you.

  • Chris Gregoria

    She reminds me of Gen-kai, thanks to that transformation…

  • Fenrir7

    I’m not sure how to feel about this

  • grymdylan

    >tfw no local ps4 multiplayer.
    Lemme plug two controllers in and fight, darn you.

  • Wolfe

    This game can’t be localized fast enough. And if Xseed doesn’t, I’ll bloody import it.

  • Dewey Defeats Truman

    I haven’t felt this uncomfortable since young Genkai in YYH. Not that that’s a bad thing.

  • Nonscpo

    Excited?

  • Nonscpo

    Wow not bad for 81, this game is getting more colorful by the day =3

  • Fenrir7

    I’m just hoping there aren’t any camera zooms pre-transformation lol.
