Producer Kenichiro Takaki has become a household name in the gaming community thanks to his popular Senran Kagura series. Drawing from Takaki’s youthful love for manga, the series centers on the adventures of a group of scantily clad, wide-eyed, and buxom female ninjas.
XSEED Games is set to release the Nintendo 3DS title Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson this summer, and the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game Senran Kagura Estival Versus is slated for a stateside debut this winter.
Hollywood Outbreak had the opportunity to interview Kenichiro Takaki at last week’s E3 2015, held at the Convention Center in downtown Los Angeles, and we asked him about the sexuality that is inherent in the Senran Kagura titles.
“The game does heavily emphasize on the sexuality and it’s an easy way to understand what the game is,” said Takaki. “But of course, if you want to make it a series that has longevity, it’s not like we just wanted to create a sexual content driven game. There’s a solid core, game playing aspect behind it.”
