This week’s Famitsu (via Ryokutya2089) has Marvelous confirming the release date for Peach Ball: Senran Kagura.
The pinball spinoff set within the buxom female ninja franchise will launch on December 13th in Japan, for the Nintendo Switch. There’s a limited edition coming for 9,960 yen, which includes a physical copy of Senran Kagura Reflexions (with the post-launch characters and three new Reflexions), as well as a download code for Peach Ball.
Set in a theme park, players will clear missions and accrue points while viewing new “Sexy Challenge” scenes. When playing, if the pinball hits one of the girls, they’ll have a myriad of suggestive responses like water splashing on them – only to have their clothes come off at the end. There’s also the Super Sexy Challenge mode, which moves girls closer and makes them easier to hit.
As the game is a Senran Kagura spinoff, the series’ staple feature Locker Room mode will be available, as well as the Nintendo Switch HD Rumble feature, which they’re dubbing the “Skin Mode.”
While the game is literally a pinball experience, there is a bit of a story, as revealed per Famitsu. The gist is Haruka developed a medicine that transforms girls into cute animals – so in order to turn the female warriors back into humans you need to play pinball for some reason.
