'Senran Kagura Burst' (3DS) European Pre-Order Incentive

Senran Kagura Burst is all about girl power in this over-the-top side-scrolling action game.

Senran Kagura Burst is set in an academy which serves as a front for an underground school where female students are secretly trained in the art of ninjutsu. Consisting of two separate storylines, Skirting Shadows introduces players to the “good shinobi” of Hanzō Academy while its counterpart, Crimson Girls, turns the tables to tell the same tale from the rival Hebijo Academy’s point of view.

Players assume control of the five primary female characters in each academy who aspire to become full-fledged shinobi. Within the “Ninja Room” hub located in each academy, character interactions reveal the thoughts and feelings of the students before and after each game mission. Novel-style story scenes then precede other missions, offering a deeper look into the world of Senran Kagura. The drama of the battle adventure unfolds as players complete combat assignments for each of the main characters, including retrieval missions, multi-character battles and epic boss fights. During combat, damage to the girls is revealed through the gradual destruction and removal of their shinobi outfits.  The original Japanese voice-overs have been left intact and will be accompanied by English subtitles.

Players can earn experience and level up throughout the story, unlocking new moves, powers and outfits. The Nintendo 3DS system’s stereoscopic 3D capability is fully supported, allowing Shinobi Transformations, special moves and victory poses to be viewed in full 3D.

Early orders for the physical release of Senran Kagura Burstfor the 3DS, will receive an exclusive 3D lenticular poster featuring the girls of the Hanzo Academy - Asuka, Ikaruga, Katsuragi, Yagyu and Hibari.

This one-off A3, 3D bonus print, bursting with depth, is available exclusively from GAME in the UK, and participating retailers around Europe.
