XSEED Games have announced Dead of Alive themed DLC for Senran Kagura: Estival Versus will soon be delisted from online stores.
The statement came via XSEED Games’ Twitter, confirming the DOA Collaboration Set, Ayane character, Ayane’s Kimono, and Kasumi’s Outfit DLC will be removed from online stores on March 17th. Those who had previously bought the DLC will still be able to re-download the content at any time. The DLC is available as the Dead or Alive Pack on Steam for $5.99 USD.
This is likely due to the licenced agreement between XSEED Games and Koei Tecmo having concluded. The game launched in 2016 in North America, giving a round five year period; almost certainly the terms of a contract. Most DLC crossovers have licences granted for far longer, or for the life of the game.
The girls of Senran Kagura are all ninjas-in-training, working for the forces of good or evil, and beating the pants off one another- literally. Players slash their way through numerous foes before fighting against one of these students, using their shinobi powers to assume special costumes with overwhelming powers, and costume-breaking attacks.
Estival Versus takes the girls to a parallel dimension, a sunny tropical island, along with Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy’s Ryōbi and Ryōna. There, the girls meet long lost loved ones, and are challenged by the island’s mistress to a tournament. The winning school will learn not only the deepest secrets of the ninja, but lay the souls of their loved ones to rest.
You can find the abridged rundown (via Steam) below.
The high-flying, high-bouncing ninja girls of SENRAN KAGURA return, this time with more moves, more playable characters, more story and attitude, and more destruction online with matches that can support up to 10 players. All the previous shinobi girls return with a host of upgraded moves to master, and new playable characters offer more challenges to conquer, along with a story that’s equal parts sexy and shocking, serious and scandalous, busty and brawling.
- A Little More Violent, a Little More Sexy and a Ton More Fun
The series’ busty ninja girls take to the beach, flying high in bouncy battles with more outrageous moves than ever before.
- Biggest Roster in Series History
With over 25 playable characters, each with her own style, technique and role in the story, there’s a shinobi to fit any taste and preference.
- Enhanced Production Values Bring the Story to Life
Dynamic camera angles, expressive animations and full anime cutscenes deliver a storytelling experience unlike any other in the series.
- All-New Multiplayer Battle Royales
Up to 10 players can enter free-for-alls and team battles in a variety of events, from the traditional deathmatch to the less-traditional “Understorm” and “Capture the Bra.”
Senran Kagura: Estival Versus is available on Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita.
