Excerpt: I’m going to start this review a little differently to most, and give away the ending. You can tell much of whether you will enjoy Senran Kagura Burst purely based on it’s cover and artwork. Burst hides nothing about what kind of content will be in the game, and delivers exactly what the cover artwork implies. If you’re put off by the game’s seemingly oversexualised anime looks, your opinion won’t change after playing the game.
Summary: Senran Kagura Burst is the ultimate guilty pleasure if there ever was one. The beat-‘em-up combat emphasizes dodging and air combos to succeed, and remains addictive throughout the duration of both story campaigns. The story mode is fairly lengthy for a game of this genre and contains a number of optional missions in order to enhance it further.

Summary: Senran Kagura Burst didn't receive a new, localized name when it was released on the 3DS eShop. That's kind of a shame, as a more comprehendable title for English speakers might have gone a long way to communicate what the game is about to its new audience.

I'm sure the first thing that caught your attention was the abundance of female characters with enormous bosoms, most of which can be seen either engaging in chatter or clutching deadly weapons. You might have also spied images depicting their clothing in tatters, or witnessed one of the girls changing into her shinobi uniform--an event in which Burst 's characters typically stick out their fannies and...
Excerpt: Any gamer who has been around a while knows that there are truckloads of games made in Japan that never find their way to American shores. When it comes to "objectionable" content, there are some Japanese games you just know will never make it across the ocean. The Senran Kagura games, which feature female ninjas in various states of battle and undress, are some of the best examples.
Summary: With manga, anime and multiple games, the Senran Kagura series is certainly quite popular in Japan. And it’s no surprise really; it’s one of the most Japanese games you’ll play this year. A bunch of busty, high school ninjas wearing all too revealing outfits with clothes that can quite literally fall off. It’s one of those games that really shouldn’t see the light of day in Europe, but it has.
