Goh from Shinobido: Way of the Ninja will be a playable character in Senran Kagura and Hyperdimension Neptunia crossover; Senran Nin’Nin’Ninja Taisen Neptune: Shoujo-tachi no Kyoen.
Along with crossing over Senran Kagura and Hyperdimension Neptunia characters, the new gameplay trailer reveals brief snippets of gamplay, and Goh from Shinobido: Way of the Ninja. Albeit, as a gender-swapped anime girl.
In late late 16th century Japan, the Asuka Clan was almost wiped out by those seeking to overthrow the Ashikaga government. As one of the last three members, Goh the Crow must decide which of the warlords tempting his aid he can trust; all while seeking vengeance against the provincial lords and rival ninja clans that destroyed his clan.
You can find Goh’s reveal trailer below.
Goh is not the only character getting a major make-over. The Hyperdimension Neptunia girls are CPUs; Console Patron Units. Each are worshiped within their own territory of Gamindustri; each representing a games console. Across their adventures, they have been pulled into other dimensions, and even videos games within the world of Gamindustri.
That being said, all the girls may be having other costume changes. In late December 2018, Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia President Atsushi Morita stated the then recent spate of censorship of anime-styled sexual content on PlayStation 4 games had been “to meet global standards.” This censorship was seemingly forced in Japan.
This would lead to Kenichiro Takaki- the creator of the fan-service heavy Senran Kagura series- to leave Marvelous in 2019. Later he founded Honey ∞ Parade Games, which is still a subsidiary of Marvelous.
Publisher Idea Factory International recently revealed that Neptunia ReVerse had its physical boxart censored for retail. While Super Neptunia RPG was censored on PlayStation 4, Dragon Star Varnir was uncensored on PC, along with Death end re;Quest 2 after a survey– all developed by Compile Heart.
Senran Nin’Nin’Ninja Taisen Neptune: Shoujo-tachi no Kyoen launches August 26th in Japan for PlayStation 4.
