"Senran Kagura Burst", the 3D Bursting Game
XSEED is "localizing" its successfull Senran Kagura Burst. This Nintendo 3DS action game has been quite successful in Japan, spawning anime and manga series, action figures, toys and merchandise.
We suspect it is not the gameplay which drives fans to dive on Senran Kagura Burst. Take a 3-seconds look and you'll find why this series is popular, especially on stereoscopic 3D screens....
The game follows five female characters who attend a secret ninja school masquerading as a ninja academy. They all compete for the top spot on the ninja list, and "during combat, damage to the girls is revealed through the gradual destruction and removal of their shinobi outfits" as XSEED puts in its press release.
Players can earn experience and level up throughout the story, unlocking new moves, powers and outfits.
The Nintendo 3DS system’s stereoscopic 3D capability is fully supported, allowing Shinobi Transformations, special moves and victory poses to be viewed in full 3D.
It’s looks like quite a gamble for XSEED to take risks with a title that may/will spark some debate about the gender role. But, as it is a Japanese game...
The game will be available in the last months of 2013 and will be distributed exclusively through the Nintendo 3DS eShop. No physical copy will be made available.
Senran Kagura Burst is developed by Tamsoft together with MarvelousAQL Inc. of Japan. XSEED Games will publish the title as a digital download on the Nintendo eShop in North America later this year. The game is rated T for Teen by the ESRB.
