Marvelous have announced via Famitsu more characters and the voice cast for their upcoming brawler Uppers.

The voice actors are detailed as follows for the characters already revealed, with the names in brackets being the actors’ names.

  • Ranma Kamashiro (Yoshitsugu Matsuoka)
  • Michiru Sakurai (Nobuyuki Hiyama)
  • Tenmei Sanada (Masaki Terasoma)
  • Hagi Shiraishi (Yuuto Suzuki)
  • Seiya Koyanagi (Takuya Eguchi)
  • Junya Koyanagi (Shinobu Matsumoto)
  • Liu Wuchang (Kappei Yamaguchi)
  • Shion Ukyo (Atsushi Imaruoka)
  • Max Guren Heart (Taishi Nakagawa)

The new characters that are revealed are as follows. Firstly, there is Kaiji Kujou (Kenjiro Tsuda), a solo developer of a resort island, which may be the island the game is set on. Secondly, there is Hiroshi Kanemaru (Yoji Ueda), a drunk person who works in finance. The last character is named simply Nicole (Voice actress not disclosed) whom is a mysterious person renowned for wearing a hoodie that has cat ears on.

The last group of characters are the main female cast, whom are instrumental to the story. They are:

  • Matsuko Uchida (Miduki Hamada)
  • Luna Yurikawa (Yurika Kubo)
  • Yuma Momosaki (Hisako Kanemoto)
  • Cattleya (Natsue Sasamoto)
  • Amane Sakurai (Minori Chihara)
  • Fuuka Kujo (Reina Ueda)
  • Karen Takehayashi (Ai Kakuma)
  • Serina Baikouen (Megumi Toyoguchi)

Also announced was a store-exclusive downloadable content DLC named ‘Kagura T-Shirt & Thong Bikini Set.’ It wouldn’t be a Marvelous game without some sort of fanservice.

For those not in the know, Uppers is Senran Kagura producer’s Keinchiro Takaki’s latest project. It is a brawler set on an isolated island where you play as one of many male characters. It is a free roaming fighting game which dosen’t focus so much on combos, however also comes with a bizarre mechanic involving the male characters sticking their faces into the chests of the supporting female cast.

Uppers is planned to release in Japan on April 21st.
