Senran Kagura Burst

There has been a long silence regarding Senran Kagura Burst for some time now. Without counting the localizations for the anime series or manga adaptation, some vague-and-yet-new information regarding Senran Kagura Burst has finally arrived, as the game’s title is written in English text for the first time. As posted by Marvelous AQL, you can see the image below:

While sharing some obvious differences, like the lack of flowers as seen on an ukiyo-e painting.

There is still no confirmation by Marvelous AQL that Senran Kagura Burst will be releasing internationally, but when information with a title written in clear English is released to the public, then something — hopefully in the Western gamers’ favor — is certainly happening. This is the same method used to release Rayman Origins, Monster Hunter 3: UltimateKokuga, and The Rhythm Thief & The Emperor’s Treasure in South Korea, with each game containing their respective original languages when released.

So hopefully by this information, we can expect some words or form of explanation from Marvelous, its Western publishers, or Senran Kagura Burst‘s creator himself.

    Maybe they’re going to release it as a download only? I can’t imagine something like this getting a full release… (or at least I can’t imagine it doing very well)

  • If SKB is localized for the west, the textile industry will see a dramatic recovery. The demand for curtains would skyrocket!

    Seriously, how could Nintendo greenlight this when they’re afraid of showing bikinis?

  • from what i understand there are 2 3ds games and 1 vita game from this franchise right ?

    • Yes. Senran Kagura and Senran Kagura Burst are for the 3DS, Senran Kagura Burst being a sequel that also contains an improved version of the original game. Senran Kagura Shinovi, on the other hand, is for the Vita and has a 3-dimensional gameplay style like Dynasty Warriors, while the former 2 have a side-scroll beat-em-up style. Hope that helps

    Hmm, maybe this series will have better luck at getting a Western release than Queen’s Blade did. After all, Code of Princess made it Stateside just fine so…
