We’ve learned that Marvelous is planning a new playable character for Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura.

The news comes from series creator and producer Kenichiro Takaki, who teased a new character for the game on Twitter. While he didn’t name the character, it’s clear the drawing is for Murasaki and her companion, Bebe-tan.

The infamous NEET will be added to the Nintendo Switch game as post-launch downloadable content before the launch of Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal on February 22nd of next year.

Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura is available now for the Nintendo Switch in Japan. The base game includes Asuka, and now has Yumi as its first post-launch DLC.
