Earlier this week it was reported that XSEED Games had acquired the rights to the Nintendo 3DS title Senran Kagura Burst, developed by TAMSoft and as the title implies is based around Senran Kagura franchise spanning several video game and manga releases as well as an anime adaptation earlier in the year.
The question remained… what company would pick up the PAL region rights for the game? Would it become another statistic for the “List of English localized games that never made it outside of North America”?. Fortunately Zen United (PAL publisher of Persona 4 Arena) came to the rescue and have confirmed they will be releasing the game in early 2014.
Surprisingly, rather than go down the digital exclusive route that XSEED Games is following, Zen United and making up for the release delay by also providing a physical retail release. Zen United have also launched an official European Facebook Page for fans of Senran Kagura which currently includes the announcement and a number of other goodies.
