Important Product Update for SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal

As some of you may have noticed during September we temporarily stopped taking pre-orders for SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal products on our online store. This action was in response to potential production delays which we can now confirm will take place.

A brief statement explaining this delay can be found below: 

"The release of SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal will be slightly delayed as we remaster to remove the interactive “Intimacy Mode” from the PlayStation 4 version.

The Windows PC (Steam) version will release with that mode intact and will launch simultaneously with the PlayStation 4 version. We are looking forward to sharing the release date shortly and we appreciate your patience."

SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal is available to pre-order for the PlayStation 4 from retailers across Europe and new release date details will be confirmed in the near future.


What is Intimacy Mode? 

Intimacy Mode allowed users to 'interact' with the character on-screen by using a set of virtual hands in order to ignite a response from the character. This feature will not be present in the European and North American PlayStation 4 versions of SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal; but it will remain in the Windows PC (via Steam) version of the game.

Why was the content removed?

The content was removed to respect the wishes of the platform holder.

Does this removal affect the Diorama Mode?

No. The removal of Intimacy Mode does not affect the functionality of the Diorama mode and the Diorama mode will continue to operate as per usual.

Will this affect any other aspects of the game? 

No. Only content found within the Intimacy Mode will be removed and the remaining game content will remain unchanged from its original Japanese release.

What will happen with the "If It's With You..." Trophy that is related to the Intimacy mode?

The "If It's With You..." trophy required users to kiss the character on screen, by using a virtual set of lips, within Intimacy Mode after filling up the heart gauge.

As this feature is part of Intimacy Mode, and as such will not be in the PlayStation 4 version of the game, the trophy will be replaced with a different trophy.

Will The Bountiful Beauties Edition of SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal be cancelled?

No. The Bountiful Beauties Edition of SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal will still be produced and pre-existing orders for this remain secure. Those who pre-ordered this edition from our online store will receive it on or around the [yet to be announced] release date.

Will The Bountiful Beauties Edition of SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal be available to pre-order on your online store?

Yes. Pre-Orders for the Bountiful Beauties Edition of SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal will become available again shortly. 

Can I Cancel my Pre-Order from your online store?

Yes. Those wishing to cancel a pre-order should e-mail with the Order Number, E-Mail Address and reason for cancellation.

  • After hearing the news on it and waiting for my new gaming laptop due the desktop got broken due to accidental reasons. I feel that PS4 direction is completely insane and will be focus buying games on the Xbox, PC, or Switch fro now on. I hope this madness will end for Sony sake. And sorry how Sony stupidity action has cause you on developing games. Please don’t take that censorship will affect every platform including PC since it would also mean that it will affect other game developers and may cause a raising concern on product that will hurt the gaming platform industries.

  • I am extremely disappointed at this censorship I will not be getting this game as I do not have a PC if this game was on the switch and uncensored I will probably purchase it in the future please think about a different platform like switch for future titles in the series in the future because it seems Sony does not care for mature gamers.

  • I support you as a company Marvelouse. Your games are fantastic. I wont be purchasing anything censored on sony consoles. I havent bought a sony game since finding out they censored senran kagura Burst Re:Newel

    Please bring to nintendo switch. Will definetly support you on steam.

    I urge all those to take to social media and express how dissapointed you are directly to sony. Make some noise, be relentless and fight for the games and the game companies you love, to have the games they release uncecensored and released how they were intended.

    How much money has sony cost marvelouse for this stupid move on their part? I hope they compensate you marvelouse. Move platforms.

    G Tekk
  • I pre-ordered (and pre-paid for) the PS4 physical Special Edition from your store back when this game was just announced and hearing this news, I’m not gonna lie, I’m disappointed. I abhor censorship. But this is Sony enforcing censorship and if anyone dislikes it, they should be angry at Sony.

    Considering the only thing that they stripped (lol) was the Intimacy Mode, I’m not too concerned. I’m here for awesome gameplay and voluptuous, questionably dressed shinobi and that’s all still here. But it might be worth considering switching platforms if they’re going to continue stifling your creativity.

    Keep making your games and I will most definitely keep buying them!

  • Will it still be released on December 11? I haven’t heard anything about the release date in a while…
