The Latest In Senran Kagura Burst: Crimson Girls Screens

By Ishaan . May 30, 2012 . 5:31pm

As reported last night, Senran Kagura Burst: Crimson Girls will include both Crimson Girls as well as the original Senran Kagura: Portrait of Girls on the same cartridge. You may recall that the original game was lacking in a few areas, such as the locker room—which is where you select your costumes—only being playable in 2D. This is being retroactively fixed in the Burst version, along with other tweaks that are present in Crimson Girls.



As detailed in the past, Crimson Girls itself is a sequel where you play as the opposing faction of ninjas. They’ll have new costumes, and screenshots from (NSFW) show Hikage in a maid outfit and Homura wearing a plain white shirt. Marvelous promise a large number of costumes for the sequel.



Senran Kagura Burst: Crimson Girls will be released in Japan on August 30th.

    JP 3DS looking better and better by the second.

    • Spider-Man

      It always does sadly. All those amazing games. While here in the West we’re stuck with more Mario and shovelware games. Of course, that’s just how I see the 3DS lineup at the moment. Hope E3 gives us something good. Might just bite and import. :|

      • Herok ♞

         Well we had KI:U which made me happy its the best 3ds game atm.

    • Mago Iichi

      It’s always been like this, Japan gets everything as usual.It’s just sad that JP’s Wii had a decent library of software while the Wii’s USA library was mediocre for me.

      • KuroiKen

        You know, any console(including PS3/X360/Sega consoles) had/has a decent library of software in Japan, while in the west it’s mediocre.
        It’s not sad, just the real console development/business started in Japan. Oh, times of NES.

        • There are also interesting games from the West side, you know. Maybe you’re not interested, but they definitely exist.

    • KuroiKen

      JPN 3DS always looked reaaaally good. I couldn’t hold myself from buying it that time ^_^

  • MrKappa

    Hate seeing this game knowing that I can’t play it because of no localization and region lock.

  • aoihana

    Puuueh~ Slowly hammers fist on palm o(❁´◡`❁)*✲゚*

    Man, Kagura Burst is really looking great! At first, I wasn’t sure what to think about the enhanced graphics, because I kind of like the rougher shading from the original, but it’s looking great! 

    I love the smoother shading, you could definitely see how well it blends in Homura’s legs in the screen shot below. I love the plain white shirt costume, and Hikage’s maid costume is awesome! (‘∀’●)♡

    I was getting a bit nervous, how there weren’t any screen shots or pv’s to demonstrate the improvements, but the screen shots here and on Famitsu say a whole lot! It looks much better than the first, and apparently there are updates to the game system, too.

    Apparently there will be a lot more new costumes, something that the original lacked, but it seems that we will get some very good ones this time around, so I’m very excited and look forward to more news! (◕‿◕✿)

       >> I love the plain white shirt costume

      I have the game on pre-order (pretty much when amiami put it up), but the plain white button shirt costume has sold me even more on the game.

  • onilink888

    Really appreciate that they’ve included an “enhanced” version of the first with the second game. The less I have to import, the better.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Saw this earlier and pre-ordered because of it, haha. I mean, Code of Princess is baws but I’ll take all the beat’em ups I can find. The enhanced version of the first just seals the deal too.

    • @baws?

      • Darkrise

        •  Oooh. Got it.

  • And after looking at those screenshots, I now have to wait before I stand up less I knock over my table and laptop.

  • Hoshi星

    Hey, if they decide to localize this Senran Kagura, we’ll have two games at once. It’s like an opportunity, a win/win situation.

  • Nauj Ibarra

    I’m tired of looking at Jessica’s ass and the girls of DOA. Maybe it’s time I trade in my US 3DS for a Japanese 3DS. Decisions decisions. It’s hard to import in my country though since customs is corrupted beyond f***.. “orz

  • Darkrise

    I think I’ve already expressed my love for this already and my hate for the region-lock like everybody else, but you guys should go on YouTube for the region-lock patch and check the video’s authenticity through likes, dislikes and number of comments. That’s all I’m going to say.

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      If I found the right video, it seems to work. I don’t own a 3DS, but this region-lock patch seems pretty cool. Thanks

      •  If this is true then it would be amazing. I just can’t seem to find the video in question.

        • MrSirFeatherFang

          Well… I think I found the right video… as I state in the first 6 words of my above post…
          It was basically a softmod hack that allowed you to play roms… from any region. Which is cool, but defeats the purpose of importing…
          I guess I posted too hastily… sorry :(

          • Let’s be careful about the kind of stuff we discuss around here. Fine line, you know? Anyway, I’m fairly certain what the person above was referring to is a fake hack. If it weren’t, it would be spreading like wildfire on all the homebrew sites right now.

          •  Yeah, that’s true. And sorry about that. I can’t make an excuse for what I did other than I was excited at any possibility to play imported 3DS games.

          • MrSirFeatherFang

            I geez, I’ve been fooled :( Anyways I know I was going borderline pirating with these posts. I definitely wouldn’t have posted the video under any circumstance either. I thought you were going to ban me… *scared*

        • MrSirFeatherFang

          I’m sorry I got too excited as well

  • Hinataharem

    Woah, that girl in the last screenshot has been eating her Flintstones vitamins. She’s HUGE.

    • Anesia Hunter

      that and she’s using EXEC_CUTYPUMP/.

  • I think I really need to study Japanese now. I envy every person on Earth who can understand it. :(

    • Stranger On The Road

       don’t forget, you will still need the Asian regional locked 3DS.

      • Well, in the grand scheme of things, I think the value that I will get in learning Japanese is worth more than the money I will pay to purchase a Japanese Nintendo 3DS. :)

        • I don’t even know Japanese, and yet I own a Japanese 3DS, and numerous Japanese imports for countless systems.

          I don’t believe in such a thing as a language barrier ~

          • KuroiKen

            Totally agree, there’s no language barrier, as long as your Understanding skill is high enough. I started playing japanese games fully in japanese without knowing a word. 2 years passed, I used some reference materials through this time period, played more games, and now I know japanese at an acceptable level to not only play games, but to communicate with people as well.

          • “Totally agree, there’s no language barrier, as long as your Understanding skill is high enough.”
            That means one still needs to have an understanding of the language as well right? If one can’t understand it, surely, there’s a language barrier. But it doesn’t mean one cannot appreciate it. But I guess it’s a matter of choice. I don’t believe in playing a game when I can’t understand any word they are saying. Maybe if I am in the same level as you are, perhaps I probably will. ^_^

  • neetyneety

    Holy —! Just what–?! Ahhh–! Region lock is such a —! Languages can really be–!

    Meh, you know what, I’ll just shut up and import. Then I’ll get my sister to give me a crash course on Japanese. The sooner I get to play this game, the boobier!

    (uhh, yeah… that was my attempt at a joke… sorry about that…)

  • XiaomuArisu

     I saw a world where games like this were localized…

    Then I woke up.
    Im still believing(Hoping,ignoring the truth)that this game will see the light of other places!

  • brian yep

    It includes all of Senran Kagura 1?
    I remember seeing something about a game once with two games on one (gamecube) disc, except the first had some content cut out because of space.

    • HavocAccelerator

      I don’t know if this is the game you’re talking about, but the first thing that comes to mind is Evolution Worlds.
