From the creators of Senran Kagura, the frantic action of Uppers can finally be seen in a new gameplay trailer.
Senran Kagura and Valkyrie Drive Producer Kenichiro Takaki is back with another project for the PS Vita. Trading an all-female cast for a roster of battle-ready men, Uppers is a rambunctious high-octane beat-em-up in the form of a violent TV show; the fighter-by-genetics combatant Ranma Kamishiro and a large group of men are thrown onto an island to fight each other for televised entertainment. Apart from the frantic combo system and plethora of offensive tools in each environment, Uppers takes the “girls watching” idiom to heart, as Ranma will gain offensive power if a nearby group of women- or “Queens”- are watching the brawl, or if he unexpectedly trips into a girl on the sidelines.
Developer Marvelous! Entertainment revealed the debut trailer for Uppers this morning, complete with brief live-action moments, bombastic action, and some of the hijinks Ranma can get into with the spectating Queens. A Limited Edition version is shown during the closing moments, featuring a dual CD soundtrack, “Men’s Knuckle” mock fashion magazine, and Swimsuit DLC for the Queens.
Uppers will release for PS Vita in Japan on 4/21; localized versions have not been announced.
