Rock out with Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal opening movie


Next month sees the latest release in the Senran Kagura series, as Burst Re:Newal launches on the PS4 in Japan. Developers Marvelous have released the opening video for the former Nintendo 3DS title.

Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newel takes the 2013 game and reinvents it from a 2D side-scroller to a full 3D adventure, bringing the visuals and mechanics up to speed for the PlayStation 4. At its heart, it remains the same game, but new missions, playable characters, gameplay elements and other features have been added to boost its content.

The opening movie features a catchy, upbeat J-Rock song and a lot of fast-paced, colourful action scenes. It’s actually pretty demure by regular Senran standards, though no doubt the game will remain packed the brim with what I believe you hip kidz call “fanservice”.

Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal launches on PS4 in Japan on February 22. While no Western date has been confirmed, it isn’t impossible given last year’s localisation of Peach Beach Splash.
