SNK appears to be always eager to place its most popular characters in basically every game under the sky, and Senran Kagura is no exception.
To be more precise, SNK and Marvelous Entertainmnet are collaborating to include three popular characters from The King of Fighters franchise into the popular mobile game Shinobi Master Senran Kagura: New Link.
Fans will be able to enjoy Athena Asamiya, Leona Heidern, and Kula Diamond in the game.
The crossover event is already available and it’ll continue until August 1.
Below you can see a trailer and the art for all three heroines.
According to a recent financial release by Marvelous, the game is doing well despite being about three years old. Unfortunately, we haven’t heard anything about an English release over those three years, and we probably shouldn’t hold our breath.
Luckily, the game is pretty easy to pick up and play in Japanese, if you’re so inclined, especially considering that the Senran Kagura well has been very dry as of late following the departure of traditional producer Kenichiro Takaki.
Incidentally, almost exactly a year ago SNK announced The King of Fighters XV, but they haven’t said a word about it since. With the cancellation of EVO 2020, we’ll have to see when we’ll hear more about the new chapter of the traditional fighting franchise.
