There's Nothing Suggestive About This Video At All

Posted by James Newton

It's quite normal

Have you heard of Senran Kagura? It's a new 3DS game from Japanese developer Marvelous, best-known for its Harvest Moon games of course. It's going for a slightly different market than the super-family friendly farming series with its newest title, though.

The hack-and-slash game was announced back in April, but now we have a new Japanese trailer for the game and it appears quite normal. You play one of several well-equipped combatants and must take down as many opponents as possible, with combos, alternate costumes and all that good stuff. Sounds harmless, right?

Watch the video below until at least the 2:00 mark and you'll see what we're talking about.

I can't help but find this sort of thing a little creepy
On a side note: "well-equipped combatants"? Hmm...

Seems normal for a Japanese game. There has to be quite a few games there that feature underage school girls, fighting demons, with constant up skirts and huge hooters by now.

I say we get a campaign to localize this for the States!

Operation Boobfall! :D

Well, I wish it was localized but unless the massive amount of weeaboos out there actually show interest (which they won't, but maybe will - because of the allure of the female anatomy, especially breasts in the third dimension), then we'll get somewhere. Until then, we watch from a distance.

This game looks pretty good, it seems unlikely that it will get a western release but it would be good if it did even if it would be kind of embarassing buying this game. Also, something that was revealed about this game a while ago is that your characters' clothes get ripped off as they incur damage.

And DOA was banned for apparently having pornography content? Then WTF is the future for this!

Nintendo isn't publishing this game. Marvelous Entertainment is aren't they?

Also I really doubt we'll see this come to NA, mainly because this is a too Japanese game, and people would flip out.
Having those girls ripped in half with their guts spewing everywhere. That's okay. Bouncing boobs? That's not America buddy!

is te 3ds region locked? daigasso band brothers dx works fine on the 3ds for me, but maybe thats because its a ds game and not 3ds
as for the video, it reminds me of Infinite Stratos and Freezing, you say the game is normal with sarcasm but this is actually very normal for Japanese culture. Also those in game cutscenes are amazing, I want this game for those :3

@26 lol, that's totally true. One of the things I hate about America.

Why do I feel like a creepy pedophile after watching this video?

Yawn, I'm tired of all these realistic games coming out. This resembles my daily life too closely. When I play a game, I want to escape to a new world.

Bizarre Jelly! FIVE!

Oh, and for anyone saying "Japan", and "creepy" and stuff, 90% of all the world's porn is produced in Los Angeles. Just saying.

(Granted, 8 percent is probably Tokyo)

Busty school girls in scantly clad alternate costumes in a decent-looking hack-n-slash. I'll buy it. =P

Though, I don't know how this is news-worthy.

...wait, this is 3DS?! AWESOME! :3

Even without the Fan Service this lookes to be a pretty cool beat'em up. It looks like each character is very different from the other. I really hope it does get localized because I want a diverse good brawler on the go. That would be great. It just looks fun to play.

I wish this would get a EU release but that is just never gonna happen, which sucks because massive norks aside it looks a decent game.

Gosh, not a single flat-chested character? I'm really disappointed. Whatever happened to "variety"?

Anyway, while the gameplay seemed like fun hectic stuff from what I could see, yuck the close up character animations are awful. Either the modeler didn't know how to attach arms properly alongside BOOBS or the animator didn't know how to animate arms properly alongside BOOBS but either way there's something seriously wrong here.

Ah, to be a pervy lesbian Japanese schoolgirl with money to burn. Sadly I'll never get my hands on these beauties. This beauty. Of a game. And definitely not the boobs.

I like the hacka slash bit. But what's the point of dress up then all the girls have the same boobs.

Looks like another crappy fan service game. And even if it wasn't fan service, I still wouldn't buy it cuz I'm getting tired of all these anime-esque games coming out these days, unless it has a gripping story like Final Fantasy.

Sometimes I really hate Japan.

Also:

So true. Sometimes I really don't miss America.

This game looks fun, btw this is normal for Japanese games. It's not that big of a deal, unless the rating isn't atleast T.

As much as every hormonal male in the world would like it too, this isn't coming out of Japan. The rest of the world likes to say that they're not horny perverts, while secretly having their own porn stashes hidden somewhere. For that, I respect the Japanese. They're not afraid to admit that they're real men, who live to create fanservice for other real men.

I thought this was some kind of joke at first but... It ain't. When I realized it was real I watched it again and lol so hard, man you just have to love the Japanese for doing crazy stuff like this...

if it comes out in the rest of the world, it will be banned in sweeden (was that where DOA:D was banned?). I loved the random tiger suit amongst the bikinis, awesome. Shame there is no way this is coming out of japan.

"Breast physics?" Am I the only one that remembers that old GameInformer article on Dead or Alive (The beach one)? Hehheh... Tan lines...

Also, check out what I found:
"Takaki began thinking solidly about the project around April of last year. Within 30 seconds of deciding to make a 3DS game, he realized that what people want to see in 3D is breasts."

Well after having browsed some screenshots on various websites on the internet with my 3DS browser (MPO 3D picture support is awesome), I must admit, b00bs do look wayy better in 3D! :*

Bring on more smexy hot Japanime games. But why do they all have to be fighters? A nice sultry 3D platformer/ adventure would be nice, too...

I think the reason for it being limited for sale in Japan is due to the fact that these guys developed Harvest Moon.
That's like the equivalent of Disney making a porn movie, it'd be a bust.

Well-equipped doesn't sound harmless to me (nudge, nudge, wink, wink)!

As a female, and as I gamer, I would buy this game day one if it came out here. Boobs, no boobs, doesn't matter. All I see are cute costumes and curbstomp battles. Really, that's all I need.
