Not leaving much time between announcement and launch, the publishing wing of Marvelous USA, XSEED Games have announced that they will be publishing their buxom ninja brawler Senran Kagura Burst on the 14th November 2013 exclusively via the 3DS Nintendo eShop in North America. The game will be exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS console and is available at the price of $29.99. Given the price, the game has not been redubbed and will feature English subtitles and the original Japanese dub.
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 “good shinobi” of Hanzō Academy while its counterpart, Crimson Girls, turns the tables to tell the same tale from the rival Hebijo Academy’s point of view.
Players assume control of their chosen school’s five primary female characters who aspire to become full-fledged shinobi. Within the academy’s “Ninja Room” 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 game’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 they’re in danger of being KO’d.
