Kagura Director Thought Of Nintendo 3DS, 3D Breasts 30 Seconds Later

By Ishaan . April 13, 2011 . 5:41pm

Similar to what they did for Rune Factory Oceans, Marvelous have set up a blog for Kagura: Portrait of Girls. In the opening post, director, Kenichiro Takaki, talks about how he conceived Kagura in the first place.


Takaki, who you might know as the producer-cum-director of the Half-Minute Hero games, says that he first thought of creating a Nintendo 3DS title back in April 2010.


In less than half a minute of this thought, he came to the conclusion that people wanted breasts represented in 3D. And thus, he began work on a design document for such a game.


Takaki seems to have a hand in several aspects of Kagura. He says he decided on the budget, created characters, wrote the plot, designed the game systems, and met with the game’s character designer and scenario writer.


In case you missed our previous reports, Kagura’s scenario writer is Yukinori Kitajima, who worked on the story for 428, Okamiden, Chaos Rings, and Capcom’s sound-focused 3DS title, Nazo Waku Yakata. Character design is being handled by Nan Yaegashi.


While the game’s genre is classified as “Bursting Breasts Hyper-Battle,” Takaki-san says that Kagura will be a combination of sexy and violence, and will focus on simple action with previously unseen game systems. And with that, Bursting Breasts Producer, Kenichiro Takaki, signs off.

    lol.. yep, that’s why all the 3D boobies mousepads and figures… I hope this game is not just gimmicky.. I don’t care about Ikkitousen at all but I want this game to be good.. at least the artwork is nice.. at first I thought this was a Vanillaware game w/ some fanservice..Who am I kidding, 3D breasts, so what the hey :).. and we don’t know when Love Plus 3DS is coming anyway..

    • Zero_Destiny

      >8[ But what about 3D hair?

    • thebanditking

      Sadly the chances of this getting localized are next to zero (Ikki Tousen did not fare any better remember) and the only way to play this is to buy a JP 3DS, which at those prices just aint happening for me.

      • There were other difficulties with Ikki Tousen. First, it’s a licensed property and there are a number of difficulties already with that. Kagura is not. Also, Valcom, the publisher, wanted to release it as a budget $19.99 game found in a Walmart bin. However, since it was classified with a “M” rating that was not possible.

        I’m not saying this is 100% going to come to North America, but another publisher would probably have a different strategy for Kagura than Valcom did with Ikki Tousen.

          Aksys maybe?

          • Aksys… AKSYS WE SUMMON THY!~

    • That’s why I mentioned Half-Minute Hero instead of Ikkitousen up there, haha. Takaki-san is pretty talented. :)

      • Aoshi00

        Does sound like a lot of talented staff are working on this game, I hope this turns out to be fun and unique being one of the early 3DS games..

    • I
      Send me one through the psn mail >8D

      • Aoshi00

        lol.. at first I felt bad I was gonna miss out on Netflix and the 3D movie trailers for not getting a US 3DS.. I guess this would be worth it :)..

  • I wonder what the design document for that would look like, especially the explanation of the giant breasts in 3D and how they factor into the gameplay experience.

    • z_merquise

      The first word that was written in the design document was “boobs”. That’s my guess.

  • Suddenly I became interested in this game.

  • This is relevant to my interests.

  • maxchain

    Whatever this guy’s salary is, it’s not enough.

    • MizuMikomi

      Agreed, give that man a raise, hell a higher salary even, just give him SOMETHING!

      • Vino (Tim N)

        I just want to high-five him.

      • doomspeller10

        4chan and sancom probably want to give him a loli by now

        • Dimentionalist

          Speaking of lolis, will there be delicious flat chest in this game? I hope so! Best of both worlds, y’know?

          • Guest


          • doomspeller10

            Mmm I don’t think so. It wouldn’t exploit the 3D capabilities properly…

  • Chippel

    A Japanese game made for the sake of boobs. Shocking.
    Good on you for admitting it man. Good on you.
    It’ll be nice to hear about these fancy new features…

  • jello44

    I find the most erotic part of a woman is the boobies.

    • Guest

      DATASS is better because like Cracker Jack box there’s a nice present inside.

  • F.O.X

    right on!

  • Testsubject909

    Will he also re-invent breast physics? I mean… Think about it.

    • puchinri

      Anime did that forever ago. Comics did that forever ago (certain artists should be ashamed).

      As long as they don’t get anymore ridiculous… If they actually make sense for once, I will be surprised.
      (I want to see characters with a tiny waist and GG bust have broken backs, please.)

      • Anime did that forever ago.

        I can never forget that the scene from Gurren Laggen where Yoko is falling from the sky and her boobs are literally FLAPPING… >_>

        • puchinri

          Oh goodness, pretty much. Scenes like those exactly. =A=
          When I see things like that, not only do I automatically think how unreal and unattractive that is, but how painful it must be. I wonder how they even imagine things like that are sexy or funny, but I guess it is for some people. =n=;

  • Angeru_Lito

    Who wouldn´t really? he´s not that smart I mean 3D and Boobs thats so obvious

  • joesz

    I hope that’s not Justin Bieber’s real body.

  • First of all, those breasts in the pic don’t look quite right. Something’s a little.. off.

    Second of all, *splurt*

  • o-o-o-oh yeah~


  • MrSirFeatherFang

    In less than half a minute of this thought, he came to the conclusion that people wanted breasts represented in 3D.

    Well I’m sure we already wanted that (especially with 3D movies and games becoming more popular)
    HOWEVER people wanted breasts represented in 3D on the go is probably what he was really thinking. Thank god this man is in the gaming industry *salutes*
    (I tried to italicize and bold, but I have no clue how lol, if anyone knows please respond lol)
    EDIT: Thanks! lol

    • Zero_Destiny

      Type So it looks like When you don’t want it to look italicize anymore type . The same for bold but replace i with b also for underline just use a u and so on. It’s pretty easy really. ^_^
      *But don’t put the spaces between or it won’t work. I did that so it would show up in the post and not just italicize what I was writing.*

  • IceRomancer

    That director has his priorities in the right place!

    But seriously I’m really hoping this game is good! It’ll be a good reason for me to pick up a 3DS finally!

  • gatotsu911

    Man. I knew Marvelous had hit hard times, but not THIS hard.

    • Hraesvelgr

      Assuming this isn’t meant as sarcasm, I actually agree with this. It actually sounds… really bad.

      • Istillduno

        I agree as well, heres hoping the game has more going for it than just fanservice.


    You had me at “breasts”.

  • PrinceHeir

    “The I Love Breasts Nyu Nyu Blog,”

    I Love Oppai :D

  • That good tits!

  • doomspeller10

    3D boobs on the go. It could only come from Japan.
    A month or so after release, all gamers will be blind for prolonged use of the 3D display at maximum power.
    And haters will blame Nintendo.

  • Rofl, that is the most logical conclusion to reach xD

  • Letiumtide

    As a woman I am inclined to wonder where my bulging pants, revenge of the cock game is, I mean… I want a sexy game too, a sexy man game. =/

    • puchinri

      Surprise, surprise; women love fanservice too and will buy it up.

    • kupomogli

      I’ve actually never heard of Japan with women fanservice type stuff. Is that kind of stuff even out there.

      • Suicunesol

        You’d be very surprised. Anime stores in Japan typically have some selection of boyxboy merchandise. I’d even say it’s popular (to women) in Japan. I know some stores where there’s an entire floor dedicated to boy’s love merchandise.

        But I think it’s rather rare to see in video games (unless it’s a VN).

        • Letiumtide

          That’s the funny thing though, I don’t care for boyxboy stuff, I honestly think that it’s a fallback in part to appeal to both men and women and attempt to ensure the market is twofold because they are uncertain about the ability to sell straight to women.

          If I’m playing a fan-service game I’d much rather be a woman than some man/boy and hitting on boys.

          There’s a market for it too, I mean look at romance novels, they sell like hotcakes.

          • Well, there is a whole genre of video games for that, but it’s part of the VN genre. I think there’s an article on otome games at Siliconera though. I’m almost positive it was how I found this place in the first place XD

          • Actually, there’s a lot of girlxboy fanservice for fangirls as well, just that the boyxboy fanservice is possibly more well known and better marketed since they know rabid fujoshi have very high purchasing power. XD

            Aside from the otome games which Celine mentioned, there’s even stuff like dakimakuras for girls (definitely no where near as many as those for guys, but surprisingly they’ve started producing alot of these recently), as well as drama cds where a bunch of seiyuu talk at you and you get to imagine that you’re the the main (female) character. Also, they have series like Starry Sky which started out as a series of otome drama cds and games and which is now an anime and is insanely popular. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg. :)

            (There definitely is alot less fanservice for girls than for guys, especially of the skimpily-dressed variety, but I’d say we’re slowly getting there! ^_~)

    • Chippel

      You could always get Duel Love for the DS. No bulges (as far as I know?), but there’s boy touching… And blushing. And moaning!

      • Haha, to be honest, I found the fanservice in that game so over the top that it was funny rather than titillating. :P

    • So you want a game where a good looking man’s clothes get blown off as he takes damage . . .

      Now that I think about it, El Shaddai does that! You should look into that game.

  • Darkrise

    … I want this game so much. Nintendo needs to die twice for region locking the 3DS. =/

  • RagnaXBL

    I would like to inform you on behalf of myself that i have officially informed you that “Bursting Breasts Hyper-Battle” will be my new screen name. Permanent action has been taken on account of these findings and as such you may continue to use this site as if nothing had happened and you have absolutely no say in the matter at hand…

    Thank you

  • puchinri

    I guess I’m the only who thought Snake’s ass in 3D 30 seconds later? Or 3D shots of inappropriate nature of some sexy males?

  • You know, there’s been a LOT of Japanese games this gen where I thought, “no one must know about my secret”. This sort of stuff will probably put me off gaming for some time.

  • Vino (Tim N)

    I have a feeling we’re going to be seeing Doki Doki Majo Shinpan 3D in the future.

  • *Sigh*

  • This man talks just like my buddy.
    And hell, I want to be buddy with him too,
    because we came to the same conclusion in under one minute.


  • kroufonz

    oppai oppai

  • Curse you region lock!!! 3d boobies FTW..

  • papuruka

    Wonder whose boobs he used as reference…

  • MisterDandylion

    When I said I wanted to play TiTS, I wasn’t referring to this kind xDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

  • Dimentionalist

    I give this game my highest recommendation…


  • Lordphantomhive

    Oh wow lol at this guy.

  • cj_iwakura

    Gee, I bet that was an agreeable focus group.

  • Guest
