This handheld title is from a sought after video game series exclusive to Japan. It has garnered critical praise the world over, and many gamers have imported copies direct from Japan just to play it. While others have been petitioning for the game to be translated and released in North America. Well, XSEED has answered their call and have brought a 3DS version of SENRAN KAGURA to our shores. While Europe gets a physical copy of the game, North America only gets a digital download.
SENRAN KAGURA Burst for the 3DS is a fast-paced, side-scrolling, brawler where you play as voluptuous ninja girls. You will need to figure out the girls' individual martial arts skills to inflict the most damage to level bosses. One very notable feature is that as your character takes damage, her clothes get torn off. Likewise, this is the same with bosses.
SENRAN KAGURA Burst has tons to unlock and all kinds of goals to achieve which really ups the replayability of this download title. If you do plan on downloading it though, it's just under 2GB so you may want to upgrade the SD card you have in your 3DS.
