Senran Kagura Producer Shows Interest In Nintendo NX Development
Senran Kagura series producer Kenichiro Takaki has expressed interest in developing for Nintendo NX, building on the brand’s successes on Nintendo 3DS.
“I’m very interested in the NX too, and I’d like to eventually work on the console,” Takaki admitted to DualShockers, as part of a wider interview about PlayStation 4 exclusive Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash.
This iteration will move the series away from the action genre, with Peach Beach Splash being a third-person shooter and positioned as “the beginning of a new story.”
Asked about how Nintendo had reacted to Senran Kagura Burst‘s provocative tone, Takaki revealed that, while they at first had shown confusion over the game’s direction, no restrictions were placed on what they were allowed to do.
“There weren’t actual restrictions, or anything that they actually told me not to do, but I did feel the pressure from Nintendo. But, you know, after we discussed so many times, we managed to make it happen,” he added.
“With the first game there was a lot of confusion on Nintendo’s part, because they didn’t really know the gameplay, and they only saw the sexy side. Yet, after they saw what the actual gameplay was like, they didn’t have any problem because they knew what the game was all about. For Senran Kagura 2 it wasn’t that hard.”
