The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu sat down and interviewed Kenichiro Takaki, Producer of the Senran Kagura series, to discuss the recently announced Shinobi: Refle: Senran Kagura.

  • HD rumble is a particularly fascinating feature of Nintendo Switch. I expect that we’ll be able to do various things that we couldn’t do with the rumble function before.
  • As for what kind of things we’ll be able to do in Shinobi Refle using HD rumble, right now I’ll leave that to your imagination.
  • We’re basically aiming for a pure and wholesome Senran Kagura, and our main objective is to convey the feelings of the characters through HD rumble.
  • The story will be charmingly stupid. You’ll be able to enjoy a different story than before.
  • As an affordably priced, download-only game, this is a concept title based on HD rumble.
  • Asuka will be the only character to appear.
  • Asuka’s graphics are being rebuilt from the ground up. I want to beautifully express the portrayal of light despite its anime style.
  • We’re considering making use of Switch features other than HD rumble.
  • Switch is considerably easy to develop for. Other than Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura, I’m also considering other titles that make use of Switch’s features.

Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura will release later this year in Japan.
