Senran Kagura dev says PS4’s power ‘makes girls cuter’

Kenichiro Takaki, the creator behind Senran Kagura: Estival Versus, has cited PlayStation 4’s added technical muscle as the reason for developing the action-brawler for Sony’s latest home console as opposed to PS3.

Speaking with us in an exclusive PlayStation Universe interview, Takaki-san said that PS4’s power has allowed the development team to create more aesthetically-pleasing, ‘cuter’ girls for his latest project.

"Simply put, with making the girls cuter and aesthetically more pleasing, PS4 is a powerful machine [for that purpose] and it was easier to create what I had envisioned on the console," said Takaki.

"Also, I was not creating a AAA title so the hardware number wasn’t that much of a concern because I had trust that the fanbase will purchase if I create the game for whatever platform. I just love PS4 and PS Vita. It was taking a dive, but that was the main reason we decided to go with the PS4."
