I don’t believe there was a time that I found myself thinking Senran Kagura would make a pinball game. That is not to say it could not or should I say should not, nevertheless Senran Kagura Peach Ball is just that and it is somewhat different than you’d anticipate.
There wasn’t a whole lot to the E3 demonstration of Senran Kagura Peach Ball. There is a fairly straightforward location with a few of the women in a cute outfit. Nothing regarding the outfit is erotic, but it still stays true to what you would expect from Senran Kagura.
Most of the time it pinball having a woman sitting in the center. Score points, attempt to achieve a bonus and hitting yields points. The more she is damaged by you, the higher points move, finally hitting a point where she plops over somewhat defeated. In this time points are vastly increased, together with the ease of maximizing hits at an all-time high. Think of it as fever mode, without calling it that.
But, it wouldn’t be Senran Kagura if it was just a little naughty. Once certain conditions are fulfilled, players can play a sexy mini-game. I played two of them, one included knocking off parts of a tower, with the other hitting a spinning top, both of which ended with the girl ending up in an interesting experience.
There was also some kind of point system, where achievements and side tasks reward players with bonuses, though that didn’t seem to make much of a difference in the demo. Most likely there will be more complicated boards, the one I saw had two ramps and practically nothing else, with a bit more to flesh the concept out. Until then, we will have to wait until July 9, 2019 to see where the ball lands.
