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.

Q&A:

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 support@marvelousgames.com with the Order Number, E-Mail Address and reason for cancellation.

I still have questions about your awesome games! How Can I contact You?

  • Holy mary,

    Its awesome to see many people so angry against you, it was not your fault for this censor, it was sony.
    But just one thing, why not put the principal serie of Senran Kagura on Nintendo, the last Reflexion game have not censor on Switch.

    So I have 3 questions :

    1-Burst Renewal does have the French Subtitle like PBS and Reflections ?
    If you tell me Yes, I’m absolutely in a paradise

    2-I’m await for this new game on Switch Peach Ball. Will you localize in Europe ?

    3-When The Fate Extella Link be Availlable on your Store, A Collector Edition planned ?

    And I like you so much for everything, for the SK Series I’m absolute fan of this, this seduction mode doesn’t affect my love to this serie, I’m play at this and I love for this gameplay fight absolutely marvelous.

    I’m the guy in 2017 at your Stand before the PBS release at the The japan Expo with the Nitro Plus T-Shirt.
    You forget maybe, but me not, it was a fantastique pleasure to talk with you.

    Thanks to you, I’m write this because I’m Sad to see so many bad words against you, So I post a lot of love to your Team.

    Sorry for my English I’m now its awefull but I hope you understand all of my Sentences.

    One of Your Greatest Fan

  • I noticed you deleted my comment was it because its the truth and you don’t want to see it? Or maybe its because you don’t want others to see it and decide like I did to no longer support “Senran Kagura” or your business?? Just for that I’ll post it again so others can see what kind of company you REALLY are…

    Do you remember when you made fun of Tecmo Koei’s Dead or Alive: Extreme Beach Volleyball 3 when they were pressured by Social Justice Warriors in North America and decided to NOT localize it? The irony of this is not lost on me. Senran Kagura has made Sony a LOT of money with every game being localized basically untouched and uncensored as it should be. And instead of you defending it you decide to tuck your tail between your legs and go back on your word and censor it knowing full well that a decision like that would be largely met with a negative response. And not only that you indirectly throw Sony under the bus anyway with your less then subtle way of telling us to buy the Steam port instead because that would remain untouched. Here’s my question: If you had the balls to do that in this sorry excuse of a PR statement what was stopping you from growing a set of balls and telling Sony that you either allow us to release it as is or you’ll release it with there competitor!? Speaking for myself this is a deal breaker for me I’m DONE with this series. I will not be buying it for PS4 and I will NOT be buying it for Steam. This is absolutely ridiculous and with the amount of people cancelling there preorders I hope you learn your lesson in future installments but I doubt it. Its clear to me that you never truly cared about the series or its fanbase. The only thing you care about is money and guess what? You can expect more negative responses like your getting and even less money…
