The second 3DS game, Burst, was released August 30, 2012. A PS Vita version, Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus: Shōjo-tachi no Shōmei hits February 28, 2013.


Ongoing spinoff manga includes Amami Takatsume's seinen version in Monthly Comic Alive, Manabu Aoi's shonen version Senran Kagura: Guren no Uroboros in Comix Rex, and both Senran Kagura: Senshi Bankō no Haruka and Hikage Asahina's Senran Enji Kyonyū-gumi in Famitsu Comic Clear.
