The latest game in Marvelous’ unapologetically pervy ninja brawling series hit PS4 and Vita yesterday. As someone completely unfazed by fanservice-y Japanese games I have to wonder, at what point does Senran Kagura: Estival Versus make you uncomfortable?
Last week in Los Angeles, I had the opportunity to catch up with Kenichiro Takaki, known in Japan as the “Bakunyuu Producer.” We talked about what he’s been up to, what games he plays, where he draws the line and GTA5, among other things.

Steve Bowling, writer of our TAY community's review, was embarrassed to play ninja girl brawler and outrageous breast simulation Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus for the Vita. Imagine how I feel streaming it live. Update: stream complete and archived for your viewing pleasure.

In the past, the Senran Kagura series of games have been brawlers exclusive to the 3DS. But the newest iteration on the PlayStation Vita makes the game play more like Dissidia: Final Fantasy than an old school brawler or its 3DS cousins.
