Pictured: Senran Kagura Burst

Senran Kagura by Marvelous might not be the most well-known series here in the west, but it is beginning to get more exposure. Most recently, the localisation team at XSEED Games helped release Senran Kagura: Peach Ball on the Nintendo Switch.

Once again, this game starred the usual group of female ninja. Did you know though that the series could have had a very different name? As part of its 15-year celebrations, XSEED revealed a little bit of trivia about what else it could have been called:

If you've played any entries in this series, we're sure you'll be able to guess the reason why this name was even in consideration. As XSEED notes: "better judgment sliced through and prevailed" in the end.

Senran Kagura originally started out life on the 3DS in 2011. Since then, multiple entries have been released on Nintendo systems.
