Torrance, Calif. – August 14, 2019 – XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that SENRAN KAGURA Peach Ball, the latest pinball-themed entry in the genre-spanning SENRAN KAGURA franchise, is now available on Windows PC via Steam for $39.99, £35.99, and €39.99. The PC version of the game is discounted 10% off of the normal price during the first week following its release. Additionally, the company is pleased to confirm that the sold-out physical edition for Nintendo SwitchTM system is now back in stock due to popular demand! The Nintendo Switch version can be ordered through the XSEED Games’ online store and select retailers for a suggested retail price of $39.99.

 

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 includes 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 launched for Windows PC via Steam on August 14. The game is available for $39.99, £35.99, and €39.99 with a 10% launch week discount. The title was published by XSEED Games for Nintendo SwitchTM in North America and Europe by Marvelous Europe on July 9, and is available digitally in the Nintendo eShop and physically at XSEED Games’ online store and select retailers for a suggested retail price of $39.99. This title is rated "M for Mature” by the ESRB on Nintendo SwitchTM and PC.
