Video: The Dubious Charm Of Senran Kagura Burst Is Explained In Thirty Slightly Awkward Seconds

Scantily-clad female fighters, you say? We hadn't noticed
Senran Kagura Burst hits Europe this week, and the game has already caused quite a stir thanks to its racy content, which is largely based around huge-chested Japanese schoolgirls shedding their clothing as they get beaten up (when they're not fighting in their swimsuits, that is).
Amazingly, PQube — which is assisting in the distribution of the game in Europe — feels that people still aren't sufficiently aware of the game's mature subject matter, and has released a short trailer which helpfully aims to educate the uninitiated. As you can see from the footage below, it starts off with a very short snippet of actual gameplay footage before charging headlong into an uninterrupted stream of breasts, bums and bikinis.
What are your feelings on this line of promotion? Is the publisher right to use the game's overt sexuality to sell copies, or should it perhaps focus on the gameplay instead — which, if you've read our review of the North American version, is actually pretty good?
