Tomorrow Marvelous Entertainment and Honey Parade Games are opening the gates of the Senran Kagura Ten anniversary exhibition, and they revealed some spiffy merchandise that attendees will be able to purchase.
We start with the official visual collection of the mobile game Shinobi Master: Senran Kagura New Link priced at 5,500 yen (approximately $42).
Next, is a set of 5 SD acrylic stands featuring some of the characters of the series, priced at 1,000 yen each (less than $8).
Another set of ten different acrylic stands shows the girls from the main illustration of the exhibition by Nan Yaegashi, priced at 1,800 yen each (about $14).
The same illustrations are featured in a set of tin can badges priced at 500 yen each (about $4).
A neat mug featuring the logos of past games of the series costs 1,500 yen (about $11).
A clear file featuring the main illustration of the exhibition will cost you 500 yen (about $4).
Lastly, a B2-size poster with the same illustration is priced at 800 yen (just over $6).
Those who make any purchase will get an acrylic stand with the logo of Shinobi Master: Senran Kagura New Link celebrating the 5th anniversary of the game. For every 1,000 yen purchase, you'll also get a random postcard featuring one of the girls from Nan Yaegashi's illustration. If you spend 10,000 yen you'll get the full set of ten postcards.
This exhibition will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the series, albeit it's quite late for that. It'll feature over 200 illustrations and sketches, and it'll stay open until February 14 at the Akiba CO Gallery in Akihabara, Tokyo.
The Senran Kagura series has been dormant on consoles for quite a while at least when you consider mainline games. The latest game considered mainline, Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash, was released in 2017, followed by a few small spin-offs and remakes. In the meanwhile, the series' popular producer Kenichiro Takaki has left Marvelous and moved on to Cygames, where he's at the helm of console game development. Over the past few years, the series has been pretty much kept alive exclusively by the mobile title Shinobi Master Senran Kagura: New Link which has done well for a while but isn't a spring chicken anymore.
Recently, we got the Neptunia X Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars crossover, but that wasn't developed or published by Marvelous. The next mainline game Senran Kagura 7even announced in 2017 never materialized but was never officially canceled, leaving fans completely in the dark. Honey Parade Games has worked on new IPs like Kandagawa Jet Girls and the recent mobile game Dolphin Wave, which appears to be doing very well for Marvelous, surprising no one.
