Busty Brawler SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal Releasing on January 18th

This is not exactly the newest of news, but, like me, you may have missed this earlier.

SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal is a remake of SENRAN KAGURA Burst, originally released for the 3DS. Well, a Nintendo console cannot contain all of the action, so it was remade for extremely discerning fans on the PS4. The visuals have been upgraded and evolved from a 2.5D to full 3D, but that’s not the only new hotness. There are new mechanics, new character models, and new options for the dressing room.

The story revolves around the conflict between the Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy and the Hanzo National Academy. Based on the scant info in Wikipedia and for anyone who wants a little more depth, the schools train high school girls in ninjitsu. This will not surprise anyone reading this, of course, and the two schools become rivals. Rivals fight, girls with eye patches are commonplace, and clothes are destroyed in this remake.

There is DLC, but you may already have some of it. If you bought DLC for SENRAN KAGURA ESTIVAL VERSUS, some of it will be compatible. If you have it installed, it will be recognized and added to your dressing room. There are two story bits of DLC for you to buy. There is one for Yumi and one for Miyabi to give you a little more background on each character.

Digital pre-orders are open, and it will net you the Beautiful Something Yukata Outfit and the Blooming Again PS4 theme. There are two special editions of the game. The digital Shinobi Rivals Edition will come with the digital soundtrack, the two story DLCs, and DLC costumes. The story DLC and costume DLC will be available separately for purchase starting a month after release.

The Bountiful Beauties Edition can only be purchased from Marvelous Games’ site, and it contains the game, an art book, the soundtrack on two discs, story and costume DLC, and six “Busty Besties” keychains with display stands in a nice display box. I’ll include an image of what you’ll get at the bottom. It’s not cheap at £79.99, but it does look like the full experience.

As a series, Senran Kagura packs a fighter into a world with almost freakishly endowed ladies, and it does so without apology. You have to respect its commitment to something that would make other developers pee their collective pants. Love it or hate it, it leans into it’s ideas and knows what it wants to be, and there are a lot of fans out there. If you are one of them, SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal will be available on January 18th.
