Clothes-shredding brawlers, rhythmic cooking contests, sunny water gun fights, massage therapy – what’s left for the shinobi students of SENRAN KAGURA to try? Well, there’s always pinball! However, 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.
Here’s an overview of the game, via XSEED Games:
So…this is going to take some explaining. Haruka, the mad scientist of Homura’s Crimson Squad, is up to her usual experiments again, brewing up mysterious concoctions with unknown effects. Unfortunately for her fellow shinobi, she’s chosen the local arcade she works at as her laboratory, storing her experiments in the bathroom. After an accidental outbreak infects five of her shinobi friends, she learns that her latest concoction can transform those exposed it into animals, at least mentally.
Now, with Asuka, Yumi, Yomi, Ryona, and Murasaki causing wild havoc in and around the arcade, Haruka has devised a way to return these shinobi to their senses – the mystical Peach Ball. Applied to a subject’s body repeatedly, with the proper vibrational force, it can undo the effects of her experiment. Conveniently, it’s just the right size for a pinball table. Now all Haruka needs is a skilled assistant to operate the table, bopping each shinobi girl with the ball until she comes around.
