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.
