It has been a long time coming and many fans have been asking for the game series to be localized in some form for quite some time, and that time is now. Today it was announced by XSEED Games that they have acquired the license to Senran Kagura Burst and are planning on releasing the title in English in North America as a download only title.
The game will be released sometime this Fall and managed to get past the ESRB with only a T rating, despite the suggestive nature of the series. To commemorate the game’s announcement the company released a handful of English screenshots as well as an English trailer for the game featuring the Japanese voice work which will be retained when the game is released.
For those who don’t know, Senran Kagura Burst contains not only the second game in the series, but also an upgraded version of the original Senran Kagura, meaning gamers will get two games in one. In the game players can play as five female ninjas, each with their own abilities as they fight against other ninjas. The game is known for the fact that when damaged, the girls’ clothing is ripped or sometimes torn off completely. No price for the title has been announced as of yet.
