Marvelous AQL held a livestream via niconico for their Senran Kagura series today. Amongst the announcements was one for a new entry in the series, Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson, which has been confirmed to be a direct sequel to Senran Kagura Burst. The game has also been confirmed to contain some male playable characters. One of these is Murasame, the elder brother of Ikaruga, pictured below. Kagura and Naraku have also been confirmed to be joining the character roster.

Senran Kagura 2 will be a side-scrolling action game whose boss fights will take place on a 3D plain. It include two multiplayer modes. Co-op mode will allow gamers to play locally, while Pair Battle allows gamers to fight using two characters.

There will also be a Nyuu Nyuu DX Pack. It will contain the game’s soundtrack, a drama CD and a figurine, all wrapped up in a limited edition box. In addition, all first-print copies of the game, LE or not, will include a soundtrack containing 4 CDs full of background music from each game in the series.

Senran Kagura 2 will be available for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan on the 7th of August this year. It will cost Japanese gamers 6,998 yen.
