Fans have been asking them for a while, and now XSEED Games has announced that both Senran Kagura and its 3DS sequel will be released in North America as one game under the banner of Senran Kagura Burst.
In both games, players assume the control of five primary female characters in each of the game's two academies who aspire to become full-fledged shinobi by taking on various missions. Novel-style story scenes then precede other missions, offering a deeper look into the world of Senran Kagura. The drama of the battle adventure unfolds as players complete combat assignments for each of the main characters, including retrieval missions, multi-character battles and epic boss fights. During combat, damage to the girls is revealed through the gradual destruction and removal of their shinobi outfits. The original Japanese voice-overs have been left intact and will be accompanied by English subtitles.
Senran Kagura Burst will be released as a digital-only title exclusively on the Nintendo eShop later this fall. An exact release date and price will be revealed once the game is closer to release.
