    Don't view the video at work

    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    Famitsu Scan LQ

    Source 1

    Source 2 with HQ images

    Also a reminder, The anime has a January 2013 airing date

    Lets home Funimation licenses it because people in the US want something related to this franchise localized and the anime being licensed will increase the odds the games will be localized as well.

    I'm not sure if the anime will be as heavy on the fanservice as the games (it probably will though) but if it is the chances of it being localized are pretty much less than zero. Remember how Dead or Alive Dimensions got banned in some Scandinavian country (iirc) for having a 16-year old girl in suggestive clothing? This is about 20 times worse, so yeah. I mean, the "deluxe edition" or whatever it is called comes with softporn images.

    I might import this game, the gameplay looks pretty neat and yes I won't buy it for moving woman parts since I totally not interested in that.

    The games, you have a point, but the anime there is a high chance, Funimation did licence Strike Witches and Sekirei and then you have Sentai licensing Samurai Girls and even then about the games you could juat leave out the softcore bonuses save for the Drama/Soundtrack CDs, and keep the figures.

    Just a reminder if you buy this you are telling them that you want them to make games like this.

    Gameplay looks pretty good. I guess i'm gonna import this since my Vita is lacking games at the moment and it does seem quite good.

    WOW. That video. Wow.

    Sadly I don't think this game can be imported to Singapore because of censorbullship.

    My 3DS LL was already held back in customs and it wasn't even "erotic" - as they've mentioned.
    Damn you censorship.

    That's fine because if it's good we'll want more.

    WTF, there was nothing but the system now how did it get held back.

    The customs there must be reeking of bullshit for holding back a system, they could just check in there and see it was just the 3DS LL and pass it quick.

    Singapore is simply over protective. I know censorship is good in a way... Like promoting religious rights but sometimes they are just going too far.
    My 3DS LL got stuck for 3 days thanks to that. FedEx told me it was due to censorship and I was like WTF.

    I would really love to play this on my PSV but the chances of it getting thru customs is really really low.
    Unless I go to Japan and buy one myself, because airport security is another story.

    This. Just because a game has fanservice doesn't mean its automatically a bad game it just means it has fanservice and unless you see the actual gameplay then prejudging it just seems biased and stupid.


    Yea delaying video games is going too far, seriously this is why I don't see the point of censorship since it restricts what the people can and can't have also then forcing the people to think and act in a certain way.

    Congrats on nabbing a spot on ShitGBAtempSays by the way.

    The point of censorship is to prevent disgusting and immoral material from being produced. You may say "Well morality is relative" but there's stuff, regardless of views, that should not be made. For this game in particular, you could peg its "censorship" on child pornography, objectification of women, and just being a general anime sploogefest. Take your pick.

    As for the game, looks pretty dumb as expected.

    Sure, there's nothing wrong with a game having a little fanservice from time to time.

    However, when a game is nothing but this sort of shameless, creepy fanservice, then yeah, there's a problem.

    Well I'll be honest. While Senran Kagura as a whole contains a bit more ecchi than I would have liked, it actually seems pretty decent gamewise imho. But to each his own.

    *sigh* Not like this will make it out of Japan anyways. Both 3DS ones didn't make it (though iirc there was interest to). So chances are slim at best. Oh well. At least there is the anime next year.

    Well unless there is no actual gameplay like that DoA vollyball game or whatever its called then its a problem but if it does have legit gameplay then I see no problem. What about those Super Robot Taisen games they got fanservice but it actually has good normal RPG gameplay.

    The problem here is, the gameplay isn't there to suit the story, or captivate the player, or anything like that. The gameplay here is an excuse, a pretense to get to the wanking material. It's porn without the balls to straight up admit it's porn. The game tries to straddle the line, and is all the worse for it.

    If you want porn, fine, whatever, that's on you. Just don't kid yourself and present this is as a legitimate gaming experience.
