Senran Kagura Burst will be released in North America as a downloadable title through the Nintendo 3DS eShop. According to XSEED, the game will feature two games in one package- an enhanced version of the original Skirting Shadows and the sequel, Crimson Girls.
Players assume control of the five primary female characters in each academy who aspire to become full-fledged shinobi. Within the “Ninja Room” hub located in each academy, character interactions reveal the thoughts and feelings of the students before and after each game mission. Novel-style story scenes then precede other missions, offering a deeper look into the world of Senran Kagura. The drama of the battle adventure unfolds as players complete combat assignments for each of the main characters, including retrieval missions, multi-character battles and epic boss fights. During combat, damage to the girls is revealed through the gradual destruction and removal of their shinobi outfits. The original Japanese voice-overs have been left intact and will be accompanied by English subtitles.
Currently, there’s no exact date as to when we can expect this title, though let’s expect it to arrive sometime this Fall.
