Posted on May 1, 2022 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
At least in Japan, the title is confirmed for May 26, 2022. It’s unclear if a western release is in the cards. That being said, an English version was made available on Steam in 2020.
Here’s the official overview for Senren *Banka:
Deep in the mountains lies Hoori, a small village so remote that no trains stop there. Due to its isolation, it has resisted the spread of civilization. However, its rustic charm and hot springs have transformed it into a famous tourist destination.
One of the village’s biggest draws is the divine blade Murasamemaru, stuck in a stone from which no one has been able to pull it out of… until our protagonist Arichi Masaomi manages to break it in half.
Before he can even come to grips with what just happened, he’s forced to make amends for what he’s done. How, you might ask? By marrying the village’s shrine maiden, of course!
He’s already in way over his head, but this is just the start of his mysterious and unfathomable new life in this village.
Masaomi then goes on to meet his new fiance, discovers an enigmatic and strange girl that only he can touch, and begins to learn about the curse afflicting the village of Hoori.
Amidst this hectic new life, who will he set his heart on? The answers he seeks lie within the legendary sword in his hands.
We’ve included a trailer for Senren * Banka below.
Senren * Banka will be sold as a digital download on the Switch eShop.
Update (5/1):Senren * Banka is confirmed for a western release on May 27, 2022. Pricing is set at $31.49.
