The stars of SENRAN KAGURA bounce back from their last adventure with an all-new, daring outing. Taking a temporary break from shinobi school, the students are summoned to take part in a mysterious fighting tournament over the summer - not with swords or gauntlets, but with hoses and water pistols. Trading the action-combat of former titles for a more familiar third-person shooter format, SENRAN KAGURA Peach Beach Splash is a crazy but canonical entry in the series, and one that's spilling over with features. Starring more than 30 SENRAN KAGURA favourites and guest stars, and ten different types of upgradeable water-based weaponry, the mix of frantic 5-on-5 battles, co-op survival modes and single-player story campaign lets you take to the pool and to the skies (by way of hydro-jetpacks, natch) to splash your rivals into submission and wash away their clothes! With added fun courtesy of saucy Dressing Room hose-downs and the strategy-packed ability card-powered combat modifiers, SENRAN KAGURA Peach Beach Splash is the wettest, wackiest, wobbliest shooter ever seen! Peach Beach SplashÂ is aÂ third-person shooterÂ in which players control shinobi from various games in theÂ Senran KaguraÂ series,using different types of water guns with different abilities: for example, the single hand gun consumes little water, and shoots ricocheting water bullets, and the shower gun continually sprays a short-range water mist.Each water gun has two modes the player can switch between: for instance, the water balloon grenade launcher's balloons can be set to either explode or bounce upon impact, and the sniper rifle can be set to either being powerful with a narrow lock-on range, or half as powerful with a wide lock-on range.In addition to water gun moves, players can use short-range moves that are more difficult to use, but that cause a lot of damage and push the opponent back. Players finish off opponents by activating a Kunekune Finish, in which they soak the opponent in water while aiming at their breasts and buttocks. Battles are fought in different arenas, including beaches, water fronts, and pirate ships. Characters can be customized through the use of equippable cards that come in three types: weapon, skill, and companion cards. Skill cards give players various effects, such as the ability to restore health, or lowering an opponent's attack power; a maximum of six can be equipped at a time. Companion cards are used to summon a character that fights alongside player-controlled characters, which can help players with things such as covering fire; a maximum of three can be equipped at a time. The cards need to be activated during the battle for their effects to be applied. The skills need to be charged up for this to be possible; by performing a Kunekune Finish, the player gets a temporary "Finish Bonus" that makes skills charge faster for a certain amount of time. By synthesizing multiple cards, the player can create higher-leveled, stronger cards. The player acquires cards as rewards for clearing stages, and through an in-game store that sells ten-card packs.The store also sells cosmetic items such as rubber ducks that change the colors of Kunekune Finishes, avatar icons, and stamps. The game includes several different modes. There is a single-player story mode called the Single Splash,in which the player fights boss characters such as a giant, bathing, nude woman,with the goal to shoot away the foam that covers her body; and giant massage and licking machines, with the goal to avoid their attacks and hit their weak spots. In the Paradise Episodes mode, the player plays comical episodes focusing on individual characters. The V-Road Challenge mode is an action mode where the player picks a team of characters and plays through four cups as them, to win cards and in-game money. The Multi-Splash online mode includes three types of multiplayer battles: Ranked Match, where players fight each other in two teams of five in randomly selected stages, with the goal of raising one's Peach Points and ranking, thus enabling better rewards; Free Match, where a player hosts a match and can customize the rules; and Co-Op Survival, where players protect a tower from enemies. The Co-Op Survival mode is also possible to play on one's own, with the other characters being computer-controlled. In addition to the battle and story modes, the player can visit the characters' locker room and set them in various poses, and customize their expressions, costumes and hair styles. Within the locker room, the player can access a water gun mode, where they can spray the characters to make their clothing see-through, or control a pair of hands used to touch the characters, with different reactions depending on where they are touched.
