First Impressions - Senran Kagura Burst
Senran Kagura Burst: Nintendo 3DS eShop
This game is kind of hard to describe, the game takes its cues from the side scroller beat'em ups of the late 80's and early 90's. Through in an anime type flavor and you have a recipe for over the top combos and plenty of ridiculous fan service. That's right this game is not for children and your significant other is pretty much gonna hate you for playing this. That's not to say that it isn't fun but its heavy on the ecchi. If you are a fan of anime you know what that means or at least you should. To be honest though the fan service here is played up for comedy and its important that I got out of the way. Now on to the reason why you're here the gameplay. The gameplay is actually pretty decent each of the characters have different strengths, weaknesses, and fighting styles. Stages are decently varied but the enemies do get repetitive after a while. This isn't a deal breaker for me though as this game takes cues from old school brawlers. I did mention this is an eShop game, right? Well it is and the game is in Japanese with English Subtitles, since I am an avid watcher of anime it didn't even bother me but I think its important to let people know that. Speaking of anime, this game does have an anime that goes with it and if you are registered on Funimation you can stream it. I have a few hours invested in this game and I am liking the chapter size and the light-hearted tone of the story. The action is fast paced and the gameplay is pretty good. I plan on doing a full review on an upcoming episode of The Game Cafe. Stay Tuned.
