Marvelous Games announced via Twitter that the latest installment in the Senran Kagura franchise, Senran Kagura Peach Ball, will be coming to Nintendo Switch this summer as a digital release for UK, Europe, and Australia. In the same thread, XSEED announced that they would be releasing a physical edition of the game for North America:
BOING! BOING! BOING!

To celebrate the announcement, Marvelous released a new trailer showcasing the ladies in all their fanservice-y glory, as well as brand new English screenshots (seen at the bottom of the article):
According to the official Senran Kagura site the synopsis is such: “Haruka’s ‘experiments,’ conveniently located in the local arcade, have once again caused havoc for the girls. This time, her concoction has mentally turned some of her fellow shinobi into animals. The only way to reverse the effects is by using the mystical Peach Ball, which just so happens to fit perfectly in a pinball machine.”
The excuse plot is a thinly-veiled reason to make Peach Ball a pinball-themed title and yet it looks as addicting as any pinball game should be. Of course, the bonus for fans would be all the cute girls they get to ogle as they play through each level.
Obviously, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard of this game — titled Peach Ball: Senran Kagura in the East. In fact, we’ve seen a fair shake of trailers and (NSFW) bonus concept art.
Senran Kagura Peach Ball will be released digitally on the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo Switch during Summer 2019 within the UK, Europe and Australia. Additional release details will be confirmed at a later date. Meanwhile, North America’s digital version can also be picked up through the Nintendo eShop and the limited physical release can be pre-ordered through their official page here. Further release details for those two versions will also be confirmed at a later date. Check out the screenshots below:
