Senran Kagura originally started out as a 3DS game. The series has expanded considerably since the series first debuted in 2011, and continues to reach new platforms. But as far as 3DS goes, producer Kenichiro Takaki says that things are “pretty much complete.”
When asked about the possible future of Senran Kagura on the portable, Takai said:

The next Senran Kagura came coming to a Nintendo platform is Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura. While a release date hasn’t been announced,

Senran Kagura creator on his original inspiration for the series

In an interview with Vice, Senran Kagura creator Kenichiro Takaki discussed how he originally came up with the concept for the series. He told the site:
“I wanted to create something that is very easy to understand but very deep and detailed for those who appreciate beautiful female characters. The first Senran Kagura was a very tight-budget project, and I didn’t expect it would sell much. I didn’t even think of the game going outside of Japan, so I decided to do my best to pursue what I wanted to do, and that turned out great as the game became very deep and detailed, and a fan base started to grow. I had the idea of Burst, the sequel to the first one, from the beginning, but at the same time, I didn’t think it would grow to be the series it’s become.”
Senran Kagura began on 3DS, and the sequel also ended up on the system. The franchise has moved around to other platforms since then, so it’ll be interesting to see if it returns to something like Switch in the future.

Several Senran Kagura games have been created since the series debuted in 2013. However, producer Kenichiro Takaki still seems to have many ideas in store for the future. He has more elements in general that he’d like to realize, and he also has a number of stories that he’d like to tell.
According to Takaki:
There are lots of new aspects I want to add to the series, and lots more stories I want to tell. If you play Senran Kagura 2 and Estival Versus, you might get a glimpse of what I’m trying to say, but there’s still a lot more story that I want to dive into!
The latest Senran Kagura game, Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson, is coming to North America and Europe in the very near future.
