    I never got to play the original Burst games, so this remake of Burst is most welcome. The release of his makes sense since the 7th game is also on PS4 and people could get to know more about the lore before playing it. Shinovi Versus explained things rather well, but it was only on Vita and Estival Versus concentrated on the two new schools.

    It’s safe to say that PS4 is now the main platform for SK games, where they intend to continue the story. Looking forward to the 7th game. I kind of hope it is done in a new engine and it would have some more enemy variety (hopefully some yoma).

    The whole stream was like E3 for boobs and it was brilliant.

    Great future for Senran Kagura.
