    ...Want to know some more?

    XSEED staff comments on the story and its focus:


    Will this game be subbed or dubbed?

    The game will feature the original Japanese voice actors and have English subs.

    What is the gameplay like?

    Burst gameplay is fast pace with light and heavy attacks along with the ability to launch enemies and perform aerial attacks. Each character has unique moves and special attacks which can be used during fights. The moves and combos of the characters develop the more you complete missions with them.

    Videos usually show this better so watch this video with commentary to give you better impression on the gameplay: https://www.youtube....outu.be&t=1m51s

    I heard this game is coming over?

    Yes XSEED is bring it over to NA as an eShop download.
    Zen United is bringing it to the EU as a physical copy and digital download.

    When is that?

    XSEED will be releasing it 14th November 2013.
    It will be released in the EU in 2014.

    Why is the NA not getting a physical release?

    XSEED wanted to do a physical release but after analysis of the finances it was decide it was too bigger risk to release it physically, especially considering the games content and retailer response to carrying and displaying it. It ended being a download or nothing situation.

    What size is the game?

    Burst is 2GB in size.

    If I delete my copy can I redownload it?

    Yes, on the eShop under settings there is the option titles I have downloaded, go in there and find the game with the option re-download.
    This will not be the case if you change 3DS unless you do an account transfer.

    Isn't there a game that came before this, why isn't that being localised first?

    Burst contains an edited version of the story from the first where you can play as the 5 girls with the upgraded mechanics of Burst. Basically Burst contains the first game as well.

    What is the age rating on this game?

    The game is rated T due to:

    - Violence
    - Blood
    - Sexual Themes
    - Partial Nudity
    - Use of Alcohol
    - Language

    Is anything going to be censored?

    You might want to put in that the game isn't being censored. You can bet a dollar someone will ask.

    Yup. When it comes to games with some sort of fan service, people will ask if it's censored or not.

    What does the actual title (Senran Kagura) mean? Is it a character name? I don't see any reference to it in the wiki.

    It's a little difficult to translate. Senran Kagura is written in Japanese as [​IMG]. The first part of the name, Senran ([​IMG]), is a play on a word with the same pronunciation but written as [​IMG], meaning 'war'. The [​IMG] character means 'flash'. The second part of the name, Kagura ([​IMG]), written in kanji as [​IMG], is a traditional type of shinto dance. The best way I can think of to interpret the name in English is as a dramatic dance of death.

    Sorry for the double post, but another thing I'm curious about. There seems to be a heavy emphasis on huge hit combos. What's your reward for really high combos? Do you get more XP at the end of a mission?

    Unless i'm mistaken a higher combo will give you a higher rank and more experience to level up your ying or yang system dependent on whether you fought in shinobi gear or a swimsuit.

    Ah, cool.

    This means I can go to sleep early tonight, and buy something with my card for lunch.(I have only just enough for the game on my card right now, but I get paid sometime around 6AM tomorrow.)

    Can someone explain to me what this "life and hometown" joke is about? I see it mentioned whenever Senran Kagura is mentioned. Is it some inside joke that I'm not getting?

    The series' producer Kenichiro Takaki once said "tits are life, ass is hometown". Since many message boards censors tits and ass, people write life and hometown instead. Most people knows what it means now and it won't get censored.
