Senran Kagura media blowout talks everything but gameplay


1:00 AM on 07.05.2011



When I first heard that Marvelous Entertainment, Japanese publisher of Muramasa (one of my favorite 2D brawlers) was working on a 2D brawler for the 3DS, I was psyched. In the months that followed, that excitement has turned into annoyance. Since first announcing Senran Kagura, the game's developers have told us about the game's storyline, its characters, its characters' underwear sizes, pretty much everything about the game, except for how it plays. The annoyance continues.

There was a recent press event for the game in Japan, where a Senran Kagura-themed energy drink, soundtrack CD, manga series, life size cardboard standies, and special ringtone were all announced. They also showed off the new trailer for the game, which includes some awesome stuff (like that white haired, one-eyed school girl juggling a truck on top of an umbrella, and a weird cloud rabbit flying at full speed next to a happy lady) but still, NO GAMEPLAY. Instead, they announced some non-gameplay related details about the game, like 180 unlockable costumes, ways that those costumes might fall off, and a special contest for fans to vote on some sexy in-game actions to be included in the final build of the game. Then a group of young women dressed in school girl outfits sort-of pretended to be the stars of the game, after announcing their various cup sizes on stage. They also danced around a bit.

Do you think Marvelous continues to promote this game with everything but information pertaining to how the game plays because the game secretly sucks, or is it that they just don't think gameplay is much of a selling point in these days?

Nintendo knows about the Smash 3DS Peach ban problem

As we previously found out, the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros. 3DS is banning people for playing Peach online during competitive matches -- presumably because it mistook her turnip for an item hack. Nintendo is no...more

After less than week, Super Smash Bros. 3DS sold over one million

According to a statement from Nintendo, Super Smash Bros. 3DS sold one million copies during its launch in Japan. It's great news that the series can still create such a buzz and sell that much product. The only thing that bums me out is that by the time the New 3DS hits in the US, all of the people I know will make the switch over to Smash Wii U full-time. Nintendo [Twitter]more
