Senran Kagura Burst coming to Nintendo 3DS eShop this fall

Xseed Games will publish Senran Kagura Burst, the side-scrolling "battle adventure" game that takes extreme anatomical liberties with its cast of female shinobi, for Nintendo 3DS in North America this fall through the Nintendo eShop.

Developed by Tamsoft and Marvelous AQL, Senran Kagura Burst tells a tale of two underground schools of ninjutsu, Hanzo Academy and Hebijo Academy, and the all-female students who — by the way, are all coincidentally massively endowed — aspire to become shinobi. Players embark on missions with five primary students from each academy, battling other characters and bosses, which are then framed by novel-style story scenes.

Senran Kagura Burst features gratuitous presentation of its ninja school girls, manifesting itself in combat through the "gradual destruction and removal of their shinobi outfits." The game will be rated T for teen, appropriately.

The North American release will include the first two Senran Kagura games, Senran Kagura: Skirting Shadows and Senran Kagura Burst: Crimson Girls, released in Japan in 2011 and 2012, respectively. A PlayStation Vita fighting game, Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus, was released overseas earlier this year.

Xseed says Senran Kagura Burst's Japanese voice overs will remain intact for the North American release, with English language subtitles translating the game's dialogue.
