Senran Kagura Burst Available on November 14, 2013
Senran Kagura Burst will be available on November 14, 2013 exclusively for the 3DS.
An over-the-top side-scrolling action title with a sense of humor, SENRAN KAGURA Burst is set in a prestigious academy which serves as a front for an underground school where female students are secretly trained in the art of ninjutsu. Consisting of two separate storylines, Skirting Shadows introduces players to the â€œgood shinobiâ€ of HanzÅ Academy while its counterpart, Crimson Girls, turns the tables to tell the same tale from the rival Hebijo Academyâ€™s point of view.
Players assume control of their chosen schoolâ€™s five primary female characters who aspire to become full-fledged shinobi. Within the academyâ€™s â€œNinja Roomâ€ hub, character interactions reveal the thoughts and feelings of the students before and after each game mission. Adventure novel-style story scenes then precede other missions, offering a deeper look into the world of SENRAN KAGURA. Throughout the game, players will complete combat assignments for each of the main characters, including retrieval missions, multi-character battles and epic boss fights to advance the gameâ€™s plot. During combat, damage to the girls is revealed through the gradual destruction of their shinobi outfits, eventually leaving them in their bikinis when theyâ€™re in danger of being KOâ€™d. Fans of the series will be delighted to experience the original Japanese voice-overs, which have been left intact and will be accompanied by English subtitles.
Players can earn experience and level up throughout the story, unlocking new moves, powers and outfits. The Nintendo 3DS systemâ€™s stereoscopic 3D capability is supported, allowing Shinobi Transformations, special moves, victory poses and a few additional surprises to be viewed in full 3D.
