Senran Kagura coming to North Americaon August 6, 2013 by Geraint Evans
Finally, the news that all Moe fans have been waiting for – Senran Kagura is getting a western release- coming as a 3DS download title this Autumn. For those of you who don’t know what Senran Kagura is? At it’s core it’s a game about sexy ninja schoolgirls with colossal breasts getting their clothes ripped off.
It also happens to be a very well made scrolling beat-em-up with, between fan service, a pretty engaging story and decent character progression.
Senran Kagura: Burst features both stories from Skirting Shadows and Crimson Girls – which charts the exploits of two rival ninja academies – both good and bad. Wisely, the game will retain Japanese voices and English subtitles.
Gameplay wise, Senran Kagura is as frenetic a scrolling beat-em-up as you could hope for, with a decent fighting system and plenty of customisation and unlock options as well as a host of characters to chose from.
Senran Kagura is one of those titles that we’ve long wished to see a localisation of, so to see it finally make it’s way to Western shores is a big relief.
All we need now is confirmation of a European release. I wonder who could be looking after that one… 😉
