Senran Kagura sequel gets new enemies, same old boobs

2012-06-03 15:30:00  ยท  Jonathan Holmes

Senran Kagura is a 2D brawler that was popular enough to get an upcoming sequel in Japan, but it still hasn't been released in the US and Europe. I'm still trying to figure out why. Do 3DS publishers really think that the game's cheesecake elements would cause it to sell poorly in the West, or that the only reason it's selling well in Japan is the country's well documented affection for well-endowed cartoon schoolgirls?

I just want the game for the action and the character animations, both of which look pretty neat. The sequel looks even better, with more detailed enemies (like the Project A-Ko-esque burly schoolgirl seen above) and more combat on screen. The PG-13 rated boobs and butts are immaterial.

It's strange that so many people feel so strongly about the game's occasional focus on the female anatomy. It's neither offensive or titillating. I feel the exact same way about Nathan Drake's ass, or Kratos's loincloth. It's hard for me to imagine why people are offended by something as benign as the human body, or conversely, how others can be so impressed by flashes of softcore sexuality in world where endless streams of hardcore pornography are just clicks away for anyone with an internet connection

How about you? Does the added sexuality in games like this turn you on, turn you off, or leave you totally lukewarm?
