Senran Kagura Burst Confirmed for Both North America and Europe

Europe's getting the long end of the stick here, but it's amazing North America is getting Senran Kagura Burst at all.

Xseed is following its reputation for bringing niche or risky titles to North America with Senran Kagura Burst--part action game and part fanservice extravaganza--after speculation that no North American publisher would touch it.

Similarly, Marvelous AQL and Zen United have announced they will be publishing Senran Kagura Burst in Europe, which will include both physical and eShop releases, while North America will only see the game on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.

Bouncy bits

If you've seen the Senran Kagura anime or have even caught a glimpse at the games surrounding the franchise, you are likely well aware of the amount of fanservice seen in the series.

The fanservice (aka bouncy bits) is going to both make and break the game in the West. It is exactly the reason Xseed is releasing it exclusively on the eShop, and the only reason it has been picked up for localization in the first place. The gameplay is nice, but you don't play Senran Kagura Burst just for the action. That's just madness.

North Americans will be able to find Senran Kagura Burst on the Nintendo eShop this fall, while European prospective buyers will have to wait until the first quarter of 2014 to see their physical and eShop releases.

    I really hope this goes under the radar for most people. I don't want to see fifty million news sites talking about how bouncing anime breasts is setting back gender equality to pre-Jurassic levels.
