Marvelous Europe is proud to announce that the hit ‘SENRAN KAGURA’ franchise will return to the Nintendo 3DSTM this summer with ‘SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson’. Fans can look forward to more fast-paced beat’em up fun with a host of eye-popping new features, returning character favourites, insane combo chains, hilarious cut-scenes and an abundance of tantalising action available to buy in limited physical copies as well as download.

As a part of the launch, Marvelous Europe has today unveiled an exclusive pre-order website for those people who prefer to own their games physically. The publisher is offering various packages, including special limited edition skus which will be sold exclusively through Marvelous Europe’s dedicated site - SENRAN KAGURA 2 official site. That’s right, these will not be available in shops.

Other recent releases from Marvelous, including Rune Factory 4, have been digital only, while American gamers have been able to secure physical and limited edition versions.

“We know from listening to our fans on Facebook, Twitter and on our forums, that, while many like downloadable games, a lot of them prefer physical product.” noted Jonathan Nevill, Marvelous Europe’s Product Manager.

SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson

SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson is the western title for ‘SENRAN KAGURA 2: Shinku’ as released in Japan, August 2014. This new game continues directly from the events of SENRAN KAGURA Burst - and closely follows the story and rivalries of the Hanzo & Hebijo Academies.

Features:

Pair Battles - For the first time ever, two shinobi warriors from opposing academies must fight together, and the dual character combo system allows for spectacular and devastating joint attacks.

Improved graphics and stellar audio -The graphical improvement from ‘Burst’ is dramatic, with full 3D environments, improved animations and a better framerate! This is combined with original Japanese voice-overs to create a gorgeous experience all-round.

Local & Nintendo WiFi Co-op mode - For the first time in the series, two players will be able to join forces and play the story or special missions together via ad hoc multiplayer or online.

Improved Dressing Room - The dressing room is stocked with hundreds of items, and this time up to two shinobi can be present in the dressing room at once! Also, for the very first time in the series you can pose the girls in a variety of positions, and even pose them in real life environments using the Nintendo 3DS' built-in camera!

SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson is developed by Tamsoft together with Marvelous Inc. of Japan for the Nintendo 3DS system. In Europe the game will be published by Marvelous Europe in Summer 2015. XSEED Games will be publishing the title in North America in the same release window as a digital release via the Nintendo eShop as well as in a limited run “Double D” retail release which will include a two-disc soundtrack.

Game Review: Senran Kagura Bon Appétit by Aisha Anime

Senran Kagura Bon Appétit

Developer: Marvelous AQL/XSEED Games
Platform: Vita
How much: £20.00

Over the Christmas break people have been shopping, eating and playing games. What did I do a bit all in one. I played a cooking rhythm game where I unlocked lingerie. I played the latest instalment of Senran Kagura Bon Appétit to hit the UK.

To be honest all I knew was it was a cooking game and thought it to be like cooking mama. Indeed I was wrong it was a fast paced music rhythm game to control the cooking (and clothes) of the high school ninjas. 

Bon Appetit! rivals games of the same genre like Project Diva and DJ Max, but with it's own  niche with a unique blend of fan service, music, customisation and rhythm. If you looking for a in depth otome with strong story this is not the game for you. In fact some of the plots in story mode are ridiculous. A fella by name of Hanzo holds a cooking contest to eat food and look at boobs, in return the winner gains a scroll to give the winner their ultimate wish. This is all fraud but each gal is happy. Yagyu gains a stronger 'friendship' bond with Hibari and there is a lot of 'sister' fantas there. Where as Asuka is determined to prove that big and thick sushi maki's are the way forward and this of course leads to obsene conversations between the competitors. Katsuruga has the most crude wish to be the harem Queen and collects all the losers for her own personal grope fest.

Even though the story is weak the game is in no means easy, rhythm part of the game is very difficult. Best to start off in easy to unlock items then move on to hard. And very hard especially when you have distracting zoom in's of ahem boobs jiggling around. I'm not a pervert but it was so annoying, so much jiggling and their distraught faces. Can't be comfortable to cook in the nude. each round you are to beat the opponent and whoever loses get's a layer of their outfit destroyed as with the previous games. If you lose all three layers you are censored by chibi's on your nipples and flash of light on your vajayjay area. 

If you complete the heart meter you unlock a photo of the opponent on a plate naked covered in dessert topping. I also figured out you can move the camera angels to get a good clse up or out...

Most of the characters are locked and are unlockable DLC which I think is a plus for hardcore fans of the series to know the characters. After beating story mode you unlock the character's ending photo, voice set and other bit's for your personal shrine.

This game is great to play on a journey on the train, after a solid three hours of playing this continuously I got bored. Also extremely uncomfortable to play in front of my mother. This game is far more explicit than Burst. Perfect for Otakus and rhythm game fans. 

6/10  ~Aisha Anime~
