Senran Ninnin Ninja Taisen Neptune launches for PS4 in Japan in 2021
Compile Heart has revealed Senran Ninnin Ninja Taisen Neptune at today's Game Live Japan live stream. As implied by the title, this action RPG is a crossover between Neptunia and Marvelous' Senran Kagura franchise. The game is being developed by Tamsoft, which also previously worked on Utawarerumono Zan. The character designers from each respective franchise, Tsunako and Yaegashi Nan, will also collaborate in this project.
The game will consist of visual novel-styled conversations and action battles. The action scenes will see the player field two different characters who can be swapped mid-battle. The first two characters revealed for the game are Neptune / Purple Heart and Asuka, the respective protagonists of Neptunia and Senran Kagura. The game will also have a mini-game that involves hot springs and peaches.
Although the crossover game is promised to feature numerous characters from both the Neptunia and Senran Kagura franchises, Compile Heart is also adding a brand-new original protagonist. Yuuki, who will be voiced by Miku Ito, is described as a "sexy ninja who likes princesses." Her actual character design will be revealed at a later date.
Senran Ninnin Ninja Taisen Neptune will be released for PlayStation 4 in 2021 in Japan. As this news is still fresh even in Japan, an English localization has yet to be confirmed.
