Peach Ball: Senran Kagura Announced for Nintendo Switch

This is Niche Imports. In this column, we regularly cover games that haven’t been announced for western audiences yet. Please leave feedback and let us know if there’s something you want us to cover!

Marvelous has announced Peach Ball: Senran Kagura.

The new pinball game is Senran Kagura-themed and it’s coming to the Nintendo Switch.

The game will naturally support HD Rumble, and will give players a good sense of vibration or bouncing when the ball hits an object or a part of some character’s body.

Further details, like a release date, were not announced. For now, you can visit the game’s teaser website here.

    Dammit! Stop trying to make me want a Switch!

  • Mr0303

    That is bloody brilliant. Takaki knows how to incorporate boobs in every genre, but I must admit I didn’t ever expect to see a Senran Kagura pinball game.

  • I never bought a pinball game.

    I guess there’s a first time for everything.

  • InkViper

    Not to sound ungrateful but, Mainline game when?

  • Michael Richardson

    I’m guessing the mainline series has fully transitioned over to PS4, considering it’s getting 7EVEN and remakes of the first two 3DS games.

  • PaRaLLaXTHeTiCS

    Two of finest things in life: Boobs and pinball. Seriously though, a real Senran table would be freakin’ sweet.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Finally, a side game that truly speaks to me!

  • Loli de 35 dias de vida

    I’m a bit disappointed at what the switch got. I was hoping that 7EVEN would be in both the Switch and PS4

  • PaRaLLaXTHeTiCS

    When I visited the family in Poland back in the 80’s, my cousin loaded a “special” game for me from the ‘ol Atari ST cassette tape. It was a pinball game with ding dongs for flippers, tits for bumpers, and vagines for rollover switches. I swear the name of the game was “Sex Flippers”, but when I search it, nothing comes up. Anybody have a clue?

  • MusouTensei

    I reserve my judgement for when we see gameplay.

  • CatCouch

    Pinball causes me to lose interest but the kemonomimi aesthetic and bouncing balls off girls causes me to regain said interest!

  • InkViper

    “I’m guessing the mainline series has fully transitioned over to PS4”

    I’m not so sure about that, now I know everything that’s been announced, it will only be a matter of time before mainline titles hit the switch, especially considering these titles that have been announced are most likely both budget and digital only, and were crated for the purposes of getting to grips, both figuratively and literally with the hardware! As well as establishing the Senran Kagura IP on the switch within the first year.

  • Michael Richardson

    I fully expect SK to transition back to Switch, or at least release simultaneously on the Switch in the future if it keeps selling as well as it has. But, for the time being, the series is comfortably establishing the PS4 as its current home for mainline. I can’t imagine why else PS4 would get a remake of Burst AND 7even.

  • sanic

    Huh maybe sonic spinball will stop being my go to game.

  • InkViper

    No doubt, when the switch has established a bigger user base in Japan, SK mainline titles will most likely be multiplatform releases, but the IP has to be established in some form on a platform first, that’s why I think their approach with these two titles is rather smart.

    Holy shit, man! That’s it! Remembered it a little bit differently overall, but the flippers (sadly) and the broad under the street light are exactly as I remember. And I’m pretty sure it was called “Sex Flippers” on the program list, but that could’ve been changed obviously. Anyway, wow. How did you know? Have you played it before? This game always racks my brain everytime I read some naughty game bits. Thanks!

  • randomdude

    hm…. slightly debatable. Personally, I’d replace pinball with giant robots.
