Senran Kagura: Bon Appétit Cooks Up European Release

By Spencer . June 30, 2014 . 12:03am


Marvelous will bring Senran Kagura: Bon Appétit, a rhythm meets cooking game with the ninjas from the Senran Kagura series, to Europe. The game was rated in Australia under the title Senran Kagura: Bon Appétit! – Hanzo X Crimson Squad with MAQL Europe listed as the game’s publisher.



Senran Kagura: Bon Appétit was only sold as a download game in Japan and Xseed will release Senran Kagura: Bon Appétit via PlayStation Network in North America too. Most likely, MAQL Europe will publish Senran Kagura: Bon Appétit! – Hanzo X Crimson Squad as a downloadable title for PAL territories.

    Lower sexual content than Atelier Rorona then, according to the Australian ratings? :

      On the up side, at least we didn’t have to censor Tharja’s butt. On the down side, like EU regions we got the hair conversation instead of the boing-bits.

      Forget the children, won’t somebody please think of the adults?

      • NegativeZero

        I dunno, the way the censored that image actually made it look more risque than it was beforehand.

    • darke

      Apparently violently tearing away a girls clothes via cooking isn’t sufficiently highly sexualised?

      Clearly the next Senran Kagura game needs to try harder it if can’t beat an Atelier game in sexyness. >.<

      • Sentsuizan_93

        Needs more impact and violence~

  • Shady Shariest

    Sadly, my rhythm is very unrefined :/ Might still try the game at some point.

  • Luffink

    That’s nice, but the one I want the most now is Shinovi Versus…

    • Sentsuizan_93

      Same. I want Shinovi Versus announced too.

  • Kayriss Wins

    No offense (and I say this with Love Europe) but if they get another exclusive Physical release with more Life and Hometime goodies like they did with Burst I’m gonna have a nervous breakdown lol.

    • Jaeger Knighty

      The game is download only even in Japan. Nobody is getting a physical release.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Though I’d be thoroughly surprised if a physical release happened (which probably wont, but hey, still buying regardless.)

    • Jaeger Knighty

      Its a download only game, even in Japan. Nobody is getting a physical release.

      • Sentsuizan_93

        I know. Thus the reason I’d be thoroughly surprised if it did. Not really expecting one to be honest

  • Awesome news I can’t wait but I hope it will be physical rather than digital. =?

    Still want word on Shinovi Versus in the UK, I’m a bit broke in September, too many games and I don’t really want to use play asia as I still haven’t received my Sword art online =?

    • JMaster3000

      Really doubt it, i mean even Japan didn’t get it.
      AQL Europe works with Zen United and i know they said that they are gonna release games in physical form(yes all of them that’s what they said) but a digital only game won’t see a physical release.
      Its like Pushmo gets a physical release all of a sudden.
      But who knows, the future will tell us more.

      • I know, I’m just saying would be nice.

  • Keine

    Assuming this wont come out in AU like monster monpiece… :/

    • Seraph

      The rating in the article was an Australian one.

      • Keine

        Really?? Surprised they didnt give an R18+ rating…
        Still the chances of this coming to Australia is still very slim…

        • Chu

          If you’re Australian, I’m surprised you didn’t see the rating board image and realized it was rated in Australia :/

          The reason Monster Monpiece didn’t come over is because Idea Factory didn’t have any plans to release it in AU yet. If they ever do I’m sure it will be rated between MA15+ or R18+

          Why would you say it’s still a slim chance when it’s already rated in Australia? It’s a pretty expensive process to get classified in Australia that is why Idea Factory didn’t want to release Monster Monpiece.

          Then again I can see why you’re feeling negative about it not having a chance of coming to Australia since we Australians have a slim chance of getting niche games because of our bs classification cost

          • Keine

            Well I didnt realise that it said australia at the top cause its like 1% chance of siliconera posting australia as the country and i skimmed the article and missed it…

            and as far as i know australia hardly accepts/bans anything with sexual content (even totori was on the line of not releasing here just because of swimsuits after the classification iirc)…

          • darke

            Only things I can recall that really get banned are “promoting real world drug use” (eg, the ‘Morphine’ in Fallout 3 getting changed to a fake name), and sex+violence (eg, the large purple dildo you use as a weapon in Saint’s Row; though this was re-added as a DLC.)

            It still doesn’t make much sense, but at least it doesn’t make sense in a consistent way rather then a rather random way that games get rated 15+ or 18+ at the moment.

        • darke

          Probably luck or persistence, since you can send it back for a second try.

  • Go2hell66

    Yay senran kagura for everyone!

  • Siery

    Isn’t this from the Australian Classification Board?

    Just looked it up on the PEGI and USK websites and nothing has been rated there. So it has an australian release instead of a european.

    • devilmaycry0917

      if this game has passed the Australian classification board there is no way it wont make though the EU ones

      • Siery

        That may be true for the UK, but Germany is really picky with this kind of games.
        Senran Kagura Burst is a good example. EU release was in february, still Germany was unsure to release it, so it was released one month later. My guess would be the box art, because I did not find it in any store in Germany,

        • Andrew Arndt

          no u can buy senkargae in german no problem i see on self and was rated by the usk
          and it was given a 16 it was delayed casue not the rateing it was rated long ago it wast delayed cause on printed they didnt ahve the copy ready to go.

          • Siery

            Still, I checked like 10 stores and didnt find it, so bought it digitally in the end.
            Anyway, since this is probably gonna be localized in the EU, I have hope for Shinovi Versus again.

          • XiaomuArisu

            I bought it without problems. Maybe its a limited print?

    • British_Otaku

      It should be painless to change your region on your Vita to Australia or the UK if Germany doesn’t get the game.

  • devilmaycry0917

    well finally PAL gamers got some love

  • DizzyGear

    This all good news and all but what about Shinovi Versus?

  • Arrngrim

    I’m very excited to get into the “plot” of this game!
