Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus

Oh my… What large… Fists you have?

Japanese PlayStation Vita owners have been very fortunate as of late. Not only have they received a very generous price-cut from Sony, but also a plethora of games are set to release within the next couple of months! And speaking of excellent authentic JRPGs, Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus and Phantasy Star Online 2‘s recent releases have been selling like hot cakes. Senran Kagura has sold (digital and physical) a combined total of 120,000 copies, and a whopping 93.37% of the initial release stock has been sold.  The sell-through of the original stock left many stores with insufficient stock for further sales, which caused a spike in the digital versions’ download rate on the PlayStation Network.

Constant Conversations

Phantasy Star Online 2 appears to slowly be following in Senran Kagura‘s footsteps with a 89.39% of its original release stock being depleted; 61,227 physical copies have been sold thus far.

The latest in the Senran Kagura franchise has yet to be announced for localisation. It has been confirmed that Phantasy Star Online 2 will be getting a Western release; when, though, we don’t yet know.
