XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that SENRAN KAGURA Peach Ball, the pinball-themed latest entry in the genre-spanning SENRAN KAGURA franchise, will release on Windows PC via Steam on August 14 for $39.99, £35.99, and €39.99. To celebrate the occasion, the game will be offered with a 10% discount for its first week of release.
After the series’ unforgettable entries in the brawler, rhythm cooking, and third-person splasher genres, SENRAN KAGURA Peach Ball brings the deadly shinobi-in-training to a new genre: pinball. During missions, players flip, bump, spin, or tilt the Peach Ball to bring it into contact with one of five shinobi girls perched atop a colorful pinball table. The PC release will include support for higher framerates and more resolutions.
About SENRAN KAGURA Peach Ball
So…this is going to take some explaining. Haruka, the mad scientist of Homura’s Crimson Squad, is up to her usual experiments again, brewing up mysterious concoctions with unknown effects. Unfortunately for her fellow shinobi, she’s chosen the local arcade she works at as her laboratory, storing her experiments in the bathroom. After an accidental outbreak infects five of her shinobi friends, she learns that her latest concoction can transform those exposed to it into animals, at least mentally.
Now, with Asuka, Yumi, Yomi, Ryona, and Murasaki causing wild havoc in and around the arcade, Haruka has devised a way to return these shinobi to their senses: the mystical Peach Ball. Applied to a subject’s body repeatedly, with the proper vibrational force, it can undo the effects of her experiment. Conveniently, it’s just the right size for a pinball table. Now all Haruka needs is a skilled assistant to operate the table, bopping each shinobi girl with the ball until she comes around.
SENRAN KAGURA Peach Ball is developed by HONEY∞PARADE GAMES, Inc. and will launch for Windows PC via Steam on August 14 for $39.99, £35.99, and €39.99 with a 10% launch week discount.
