I didn't like Senran Kagura, I hope they do something decent because these girls deserve much love.

It looks good I suppose, but I just have so many more videogames on higher priority than this. I'll at least keep an eye on it (not that I have a choice since two people I follow on Twitter are in it) to see what the opening themes will be. Since Riko's in it, there's at least a 99% chance that it'll be done by RAS, right?!

Just saw the stream. I'm mega excited for this. Boobies, water guns, and girls "deepening their partnerships" all sounds amazing. Not to mention that staff list... *sweating intensifies*.

Takaki, Kaneko, and TNK...
Can we denounce this show for illicit association?

Here's an official announcement of the game and it is on PS4, so buyer beware.

I want to try this anime out. However, with the game it could be a buyer beware, Marvelous mentioned that there was a game that was unannounced and had to be censored inside of Japan, chances are it's the game version of this anime and it's probably on PS4.

From Gematsu's new's on it:
Additionally, there was a job listing in 2018 for course map modelling on a PlayStation 4 “water race shooting game.” There was also a separate job listing for “modeling of beautiful anime girl characters in a PlayStation 4 console game that adds shooting elements to racing.”

Hopefully the game or anime isn't going to be censored up the wazoo since girls and racing would be great, but as @Hoppy stated this could be a project that is being censored by Sony, in which case I would not support the franchise in anyway. I don't want to support a business that tries to hide my oppai ninjas behind walls of light.

I wasn't a huge fan of Shinovi Master (too much godamn Yumi) but at least the fluffly boobs were uncensored.

Is this the project that he announced during his departure from the previous company?
