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.

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

  • Won’t buy the game anymore because i don’t like censored games and games affected and influenced by sjw and feminists.

  • So i guess im the only one who dosn’t really care about intimacy mode being removed huh?
    Sure i’m against censoring in media too… But this won’t effect the gameplay! And i never used it anyway… Had it been the breakable costumes i would have been bumed.
    I just hope that you keep relesing these games on ps4 in the future.
    Even if sony is being stupid…

  • I was about to create an account and buy this, as someone who was very interested in the game and as someone, who bought every game (aside the Vita ones). Sadly, as I don’t tolerate any kind of censorship and don’t plan to buy the steam version either, it seems I’m going to completely miss out on this title.

    I’m fully aware, from the way it was announced, that it wasn’t Marvelous’ decision, but I just cannot and will not spend my money on a censored product, even if it is “only” Intimacy Mode.

    Considering this seems to be a new policy of Sony, I hope future titles are on a platform where such a stupid policy doesn’t exist, or else this marks the end of me buying any such titles.

  • As it stands, i sadly will not buy the European version of the game. I ordered the Japanese version and with that i also put this Question here:

    If future games run the risk of being censored, would you consider making Asian/English versions or at least put out Patches for the Asian/Japanese games ,with the English translation?

    Yes, i know there are possibly factors,that i as a simple customer cannot know,why such things can be difficult. Yet still, censorship is something, that your Fans/Customers are NOT asking! Let´s be real,if i have to pay a little extra for getting the Game i want, in the original state,than i would do it.

    I hope you Guys can figure something out,cause just accepting it for this game and future titels,will not end good. Never the less, Thank you for your hard work!

  • So the touchy part will be removed, will we still be able to view the girls in said mode? As in will we still be able to view and maneuver a camera around the girls by themselves?
