March 27, 20191 min read
Kenichiro Takaki, producer of the long-running Senran Kagura series, has left developer/publisher Marvelous in order to pursue new projects elsewhere. Takaki will, however, remain producer of the Senran Kagura series.
According to the Famitsu interview (translated by Ryokutya2089) Takaki felt as if "a thread had snapped within him" noting that although he respects regulations as they apply to specific genres, he feels it sets an unwelcome standard. As producer, Takaki will finish up his work with Senran Kagura 7EVEN, before moving on to a newproject for Cygames Inc, which is expected to be a more demure fantasy adventure.
Senran Kagura 7EVEN is in development for an unspecified future release.
