Gentlemen, get your oils and scented candles ready, because Senran Kagura Burst will be arriving in Europe some time in Q1 2014. Americans received a localization confirmation from XSEED earlier this week, seemingly leaving our brothers across the pond out in the cold. Publisher Zen United has thankfully taken up the cause of bringing 3DS schoolgirl ninja brawling to Euro Land.

Though the American version is slated to be digital only, the European version will receive both an eShop and retail release. You may remember back when XSEED executive vice president Ken Berry explained that a physical release of Senran Kagura would likely be out of the cards "due to the subject matter and difference in attitudes between Japanese culture and the more conservative culture here in the US." The whole of Europe apparently does not share the same attitudes, which cements the States as the biggest prudes in the developed world.

But at least now everyone will have the chance to purchase Burst. I've been legitimately interested ever since watching the manic gameplay clips on YouTube, so count me in.
