This week’s Famitsu has revealed that a special new character has been added to the Senran Kagura: Estival Versus playable roster.

New playable character Ryohime is actually the older sister of twins Ryobi and Ryona. Word around the shinobi water-cooler is that she perished during a fight with a spirit,  though she was brought back to life during the Kagura Thousand-Year Festival.

Not entirely 100% in pre-death condition however, Ryohime comes back complete with a halo and a coffin – using the latter instead of a launcher; as for her weapon of choice, she’s a shotgun and shield kind of lady and she’s pretty damn good with them.

Other released details include her measurements (171cm tall, 94H-55-89), the lack of a noted blood type, the fact that she celebrates a “death day” instead of a birthday, and that her only interest is her younger sisters.

You can look forward to playing as Ryohime when Senran Kagura: Estival Versus releases March 26th in Japan.

    Aw crap. I draw the line at inciting necrophelia… If I even spelled that right… Lol

      Necrophilia deals with the dead; not only is she not dead but she’s got a heavenly body! (get it?)

        Oh, that’s a great pun. Why didn’t I think of that?

    I want to play this on PS4 for the graphics, but too embarrassing for my girlfriend to see…

    Ryohime…wasnt her name different in Shinovi Versus?

    • Kyle Wakeling

      She’s not in Shinovi Versus, she’s a new addition to the playable roster in Senran games. 😉

      • Nonscpo

        Not as a playable charachter but her existance was mentioned in the game. I really dont want to go into any more details than that, cause you know spoilers.
