What's a good starting point for this series? And by that I mean which one is the lewdest?
Personally, I'd just say release order. Both 2 (which takes place immidately after the Hanzo route ) and SV (which I'm guessing takes place a few years after the Hebijo route) both start after Burst. Then EV takes place after SV.
The story, while cheesy and cliche at times; is quite compelling for a fanservice game, for the most part.
They also play slightly different than each other. Burst plays a lot like Final Fight/Streets of Rage lite, which SV plays a lot like Dynasty Warriors but with more of a focus on officer battles, 2 plays like a combination of Burst with the standard beat-em-up action and SV with 3D movement and the over-the-shoulder camera, and EV is a more refined SV.
Then you should get Shinovi Versus and Estival Versus, those are the lewdest games in the series.
You can try Senran Kagura Burst and Deep Crimson on 3DS but they aren't fully necessary
If you have a Vita, giving Shinovi Versus a shot wouldn't hurt if you keep in mind that Estival Versus is going to be a straight upgrade from it. If you hold out for EV it should be fine since they usually recap character backstories anyway with each title (not like there's much of a story anyway unless you play the 3DS titles).
Pretty much, though one thing you do wanna keep in mind about Burst is that it does have framerate issues. Not enough to completely ruin the game (at least for me), but it is a dealbreaker for most people.
I want to lick all 5 of those navels.
well since we are having a Senran thread, who's everyone favorite girl from each group?
Hanzo - Kat
Crimson - Hikage
Hebijo - Ryona
Gessen - Shiki
I only have one favorite.
Start with EV. It came out on friday.
Sucks for you but my EU LE came on friday. Maybe you have to wait a bit longer?
That's what happens if you don't follow the rules.
Stop lying, anon. EU gets the game in March.
I love Senran Kagura.
I am so fucking hyped for EV to come to the west, my Japanese isnt very strong, but EV is so damn fun.
Ive done some unboxings of Senran games and shit. Here they are.
I tried looking up the games in this series but I couldnt tell what order they go in. I dont have a vita, but are the 3DS ones good? I dont have a XBO or PS4 either, so idk where to start
If there even is a timeline it looks something like this.
Ryouki and Sayuri usually do their own thing.
No, she's part of a trio with Hanabi and Kafuru. Ryoki and Jasmine are solo ninjas.
The festival girls don't really have a leader, but Renka is the big sister type so she looks out for the others I guess. More like Ikaruga's role than Asuka's though.
Speaking of this, can we talk about how amazing this roster is?
Hanzo - Yagyuu/Asuka (I can never decide)
Crimson - Hikage
Hebijo - Ryobi
Gessen - Murakumo
Why don't people ever mention the Spark! manga when talking chronology, it's a canon part of the timeline.
What does that have to do with anything?
I'm not saying that we should be devoting whole threads to the manga, but if someone asks what the series's chronology is, not including Spark! is giving them incomplete information.
>buy Senran Kagura 2 because of giant tits
>actually like the game
This. Made up for you faggots tricking me into buying one of the Neptunia games.
This game series is problematic, toxic and needs more strong, sporty, black girls in order to create a more diverse and welcoming environment.
The fact that black girls and fit girls make my dick rock hard is just a coincidence and has no impact on my desire for more body types in this series.
I'm serious, i-it's all about sexual justice.
>Don't really care for games like this with excessive fanservice since it usually means bad gameplay or just something is bad in general and I'm put off.
>Buy Burst because it looked decent enough, it was on sale, there were constant threads up just talking about SV being localized, and Hikage was cute.
>End up buying the entire series due to liking it even despite all the horrendous framerate problems.
>SK2 just came in
You guys are alright.
Is it worth getting this game if I don't care for the boobs? I just want to fight cute warrior girls as a cute girl.
>I just want to fight cute warrior girls as a cute girl.
Since that's what the game basically is, then yes. There's even clothes customization.
They've been fun for me, even if I have some problems with certain things in the games.
Burst is a side-scrolling beat 'em up wish flashy combos and a couple tough fights. Only really bad part about this one is the framerate and how most of your fighting is about keeping the enemy in the air with combos as long as possible.
Versus is a 3D beat 'em up(Think Sengoku Basara for how fighting actually works) but you move from area to area until you reach a boss rather than running around chasing characters in a map. It has some major problems with all its "special" ninja enemies, but otherwise you can combo, it's flashy, and it's pretty difficult if going for the best ranks.
Just got SK2 so I have no clue yet and don't have EV.
Hanzo - Katsuragi
Crimson - Hikage
Hebijo - Murasaki
Gessen - Yozakura
Hanzo - Ikaruga
Crimson - Haruka
Hebijo - Rin
Gessen - Yumi
Asuka, who is also my favourite out of all.
There's only one girl that matters to me.
But if I'm forced to choose for the rest, I'd say Hikage, Ryobi, Yumi.
Is Ikaruga's bust size growing? She's looking a bit bigger than she used to be.
>Hanzo - Ikaruga
>Crimson - Mirai
>Hebijo - Rin
>Gessen - Yumi
