Senran Kagura Burst Coming To North America From Xseed


As both Marvelous AQL and Xseed have hinted to Siliconera in the past, Senran Kagura Burst is coming to the Nintendo 3DS in North America as a download title.


As detailed in our past reports on the game, Senran Kagura Burst features two games in one—an upgraded version of the original Senran Kagura (titled Skirting Shadows) with gameplay improvements and its story sequel, Senran Kagura Burst (titled Crimson Girls).


Each game allows you to take control of five female ninjas, each with their own special abilities. In between the game’s brawler-like stages, the story is told through a visual novel format. As the ninjas take damage, their clothing will get damaged (and eventually destroyed), too, which is one of the series’ more infamous features.


Xseed say that Senran Kagura Burst will feature Japanese voices with English subtitles. The game is slated for release in North America via the Nintendo eShop in fall 2013. Surprisingly, the game is rated “T” by the ESRB.
