Despite the fact that there has yet to be an announcement for a Western release of the first Senran Kagura game, a sequel is already being announced for Japanese release. Marvelous Entertainment has revealed their plans to release Senran Kagura Burst: Crimson Girls on the Nintendo 3DS via this week’s Famitsu magazine.
The title will allow players to play as the opposing ninja faction, Viper Academy, from the first game. Players will also be able to play more of the game in 3D unlike the first game. Marvelous has stated that Senran Kagura Burst: Crimson Girls is currently 81% complete already and it is set for release in Japan on August 30th. Perhaps this announcement of a sequel will inspire a localization for the first game? We shall see.
