Before I’m going to kick-off my “Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash” review, I’m going to share a bit of the game’s backstory first. So here we go!

When Homura speaks, you listen.

When the Shinobi girls get an invite (in a suitably dramatic fashion) to a ninja-only competition they all (with a bit of persuasion in some quarters)  relish the chance to swap their usual weaponry for something more water-based.

However, as they progress through the tournament, they find out that not all is as it seems.

All the schools are back, and this time all the “Senran Kagura” girls are wearing swimwear :3

So with the backstory out of the way, “Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash” is somewhat of a sequel to “Estival Versus”.

You see, “Peach Beach Splash” keeps the usual third-person view (complete with a very annoying camera system) and replaces all the girls weaponry with water cannons, with require very frequent reloading.

As per usual, the story continues whilst your playing (that might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but that’s how it is in “Peach Beach Splash”).

The game (as most other “Senran Kagura” titles) has a single-player story mode, which again, starts off with an interesting anime (although this time the animation quality doesn’t appear to be as good as it is in “Estival Versus”).

Peach Beach Splash’s anime content is good, but the animation quality is not as good as it is in “Estival Versus”.

Anyways, selecting one of the available schools starts the main game, and this is where you need to find out what the competition is really about. Furthermore, you also get to solve some problems that one or more of the girls have as well.

“Peach Beach Splash” story is very good, and so are the dialogs (for the most part).

Before each round, you can select your load-out as well as various cards that you’ve collected that help boost your play.  So if you win, more cards will be available to your total at the end of the round too.

Say hello to the the shady hosts of “Peach Beach Splash”, Miss R and Mr K.

Gameplay wise, “Peach Beach Splash” is okay. However, the game does suffer from the same problem as the earlier “Senran Kagura” versions

Namely, the default camera system which requires continual manual adjustment.  Fortunately enough though (in this game at least), with enough fiddling you can get something setup so that it always looks in the more or less the correct direction.

This is what the deck editing looks like in “Peach Beach Splash”.

So whilst “Peach Beach Splash” makes a change to replace five-fingered blades with water cannons, you spend so much time refilling the water reservoir on your weapon, that you find that your teammates have won the game for you, effectively making your presence immaterial

It also doesn’t help that your run/dash ability is also powered by the same reservoir too.

“Tits are life, ass is hometown” – The “Senran Kagura” series continues to spread the love in the West.

So, what about visuals then? Well, “Peach Beach Splash” is, as usual, very nice, with the girls being animated very well (especially in all the usual places).

You and your opponent’s characters clothes will take damage from high-powered water guns.

As nice as the might sound though, the single player rounds are very short, so you don’t really seem to get involved in anything (especially as most of the time you are busy refuelling your gun).

senran kagura peach beach splash diorma mode

In Diorama mode, you can create a variety of stills like this one.

Other than that, the multiplayer mode looks like it’s region locked…So it was all empty there (it may be more popular elsewhere in the world?). As for game modes, you have various modes to pick from (including ranked), of which many settings can be changed.

senran kagura peach beach splash collectable lewd cards

There are collectable cards to be had in “Peach Beach Splash”, and they provide power ups and lovely “artwork” *cough cough*

As usual, the “Intimacy”, “Diorama” and “Dress-up” modes are correct and present, so you can grope the girls as much as you like (it all works pretty much the same as previous versions too).

So, all in all, I have to say that “Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash” is a very fun (but over-simplistic) lewd third-person-shooter.

Simply put, if you’re a fan of the “Senran Kagura” series, then you probably don’t want to miss out on “Peach Beach Splash”.

Pros:
+ Lovely (although overtly shiny) graphics which are well animated
+ Music is nice (although not as catchy as in Estival).  Get the usual anime start and ending (although the quality doesn’t seem to be as good as in Estival)
+ Voice acting is as good as ever
+ The lewd content is very nice

Cons:
– The initial camera settings are awful
– Multiplayer could well be dead
– Cards are of little use – most of the time you forget about them
– Mouse controls could be better

Gameplay: 3/5
Graphics: 4/5
Sound and music: 4/5
Controls: 3/5
Replay value: 3/5
Story: 4/5

tgg grade 4 out of 5

Verdict: 4/5
Whilst Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash play is probably over-simplistic,  and rather devoid of your input, the story is does make up for it (being the usual mix of comedy and pathos). So while the graphics and sound are also good, you really need to be a fan of series to want to buy this.
