  • There are a lot of player swho started playing the Senran Kagura series with the release of Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus.
  • The story of Senran Kagura Burst was darker than Takaki had thought.
  • One of the challenges around the time of Senran Kagura: Estival Versus was not making it a simple mow-down game. Senran Kagura Burst originally had a high level of difficulty intended for gamers, so Takaki wanted to add on to that.
  • The awakening scenes of Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal are all completely new.
  • Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal uses the voices from the original game. The story has only been slightly modified for parts that may be difficult to understand.
  • They are still in the stage of solidifying their ideas for the August 2017-announced Senran Kagura 7EVEN. It will likely be a bit longer before the game is released.
  • Takaki would also like to remake Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson if the opportunity presents itself, but notes that would be difficult since he is currently developing Senran Kagura 7EVEN.
  • The team has a lot of ideas, like spin-offs, but Takaki says that he wants to have the main story settle down in Senran Kagura 7EVEN.
  • While Takaki does not want to end the series, he does want the story to make a beautiful landing.
  • If read backwards, 2018 is 8102 (pronounced “Paiotsu” in Japanese, or “boobs”), so Takaki wants to make it a Senran Kagura year.
