Senran Kagura, known more for its well-endowed feminine ninjas and erotic elements than its side-scrolling action gameplay, got its start on Nintendo 3DS in 2011 courtesy of Marvelous Entertainment. Takaki credits development for the 3DS with the notion that players would want to see breasts in glorious three dimensions.
Since the original release, it has seen follow-ups on 3DS, PlayStation Vita, PS4, mobile, and even has an upcoming game for the Nintendo Switch. That game, focused on the character Shinobi Refle, will take the series to new heights of lewdness by using the system’s HD Rumble to simulate breast physics.
