National Academy and their sworn enemies from Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy, the latter of which have now gone underground and formed a mercenary strike team known as the Homura Crimson Squad. In addition to their old adversaries, the Hanz? girls must also face a whole new set of foes: the students of Gessen Girls’ Academy, who seek to punish them for their imperfections as shinobi warriors. Meanwhile, a new class is in session at Hebijo, and these students mean business: they oppose all three of the competing factions and will stop at nothing to be the last shinobi squad standing – even if it means leaving broken bodies and shattered dreams in their wake.

    Look past its sexy veneer and Shinovi Versus is a solid, well made brawler with panache. Come for the boobs, stay for the empowering battles against ninja hordes.

    Between story missions and replayable challenge rooms the game’s longevity certainly has legs, and if those don’t do it for you, it’s got a lot of regular human legs you can spend your time with too.

    Bursting with sophomoric charm and absurd sexiness, Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus will provoke either cringing or laughter depending on who’s playing it. What it lacks in maturity it makes up for with a refreshing lack of seriousness, and it presents it all in a content-laden game filled with easy, straightforward 3D ass-kicking.

    This is a sexy game designed for weirdos, and I’m fully aware of that. It’s also an entertaining brawler, mechanically. Comboing large groups of enemies into the sky is always satisfying, but I do wish I was controlling a model that wasn’t quite so ridiculously sexualised. I think all I can really say is that I had fun with it, and a lot of other people will have fun with it too. I just hope they’re having fun for the right reasons.

    If you can deal with gratuitous and risqué fan service, then you'll find that Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus is a good brawler.

    On a whole, while Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus offers more than a dozen hours of content, it doesn’t offer much variety in terms of gameplay. That being said, the visual novel-like storytelling does add enough of an interesting plot and characters that, assuming you're okay with seeing them in underwear most of the time, makes this game worth playing through.

    That said, there’s nothing wrong with enjoying this Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus as a little bit of a guilty pleasure, devouring it of its value, and moving onto your next fix; just don’t expect anything more than that. Keep in mind it’s a port of a game that was designed for handhelds, and you won’t be disappointed.

    When I heard and see some gameplay videos I wasn´t impressed.Certainly graphs are somehow old but it´s perfectly understandable that the gamesWhen I heard and see some gameplay videos I wasn´t impressed.Certainly graphs are somehow old but it´s perfectly understandable that the games was released for the Vita that is like a PS2.5 device.
    At first I was skeptic of what to expect. But at the end I was surprised of how entertaining it is.
    Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus it´s like a more simple Dinasty Warriors but with sexy girls, lulzy history and a lot of bikinis and shredder clothes. This is what to expect. Nothing less nothing more.
    The game it´s pretty good but if you aren´t into sexy anime girls well sorry for you.
    Maybe I exaggerate the score for a 9, an8 would be more realistic but taking into account how bad and scarce is the gaming industry right now, I not repent my score and I wish no more harm for it.
    I would wish that some site reviewers wouldn´t be as hypocrite to ask for a censored version or unclothing something.And say that they were embarrassed playing,so idiotic of them.
    That people don´t help out, they lack maturity to analyze this game correctly, is what it is.
    If they wish for an amish version or for a male homosexual simply this wouldn´t be Senran Kagura so just stop reviewing something not of your business.

    Small arenas and extremely bad camera really make Shinovi Versus more frustrating to play, which unfortunately kinder seals the fate of thisSmall arenas and extremely bad camera really make Shinovi Versus more frustrating to play, which unfortunately kinder seals the fate of this game which is based on the popular anime series. The general graphics, and cut scenes are pleasure to the eyes... however the game unfortunately becomes highly repetitive and with the poor camera ruin it.

    Even the simple of tasks such as locking onto your enemy isn't that easy, and even that fails spectacularly when the camera becomes stuck or unable to focus on the target because it 'jumped' so you are left to mash buttons and hope you hit something.
