More Senran Kagura and Fate/Extella Link Heading Westward Later this Year, Bullet Witch Comes to PC April 25th
This morning XSEED Games and Marvelous Europe have announced plethora of localization announcements that western fans can look forward to.
First up we have Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal, a remake of the 3DS title Senran Kagura Burst heading to the PlayStation 4 and PC this fall.
Originally released under the name SENRAN KAGURA Burst in North America and serving as a “director’s cut”-style take on the inaugural entry in this now storied series, SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal brings the prior release’s classic 2.5D action to modern hardware with a full 3D remake and a fresh retelling of the story that started it all. This fast-paced brawler will provide updated combat mechanics and character models, as well as all-new special effects for a voluptuous visual feast! The series’ popular Dressing Room mode continues to see expansions too, with a wealth of new outfits and options that allow players to customize their favorite girls’ looks and styles. With additional DLC episodes to come that will reveal new story episodes for Yumi and Miyabi detailing their histories prior to meeting Asuka and Homura, SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal delivers an authentic recreation of the original game while ensuring that series fans will have plenty of new content to look forward to!Developed by Honey∞Parade Games, Inc. and slated for publishing on PS4™ system and Windows PC, SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal will release this fall both digitally and physically on PS4™ system and digitally on Windows PC. More release details will be shared at a future time.
Staying with the Senran Kagura news, XSEED is also proud to announce that the Nintendo Switch exclusive Senran Kagura game Reflections will also be heading westward later this year.
After brutal melees, rhythmic cooking contests, and shockingly serious water gun fights, the SENRAN KAGURA series is ready to take on the world of interactive storytelling for the first time and give players a chance to get to know the shinobi heroine Asuka in surprising new ways. SENRAN KAGURA Reflexions uses the unique properties of the Joy-Con™ to employ the art of reflexology and massage. Melt away Asuka’s worries and stresses by hand or through a variety of useful tools and explore deeper relationships than have ever been possible in the series before.The advanced HD rumble technology provides a more realistic sense of interaction and feeling with Asuka, helping guide players to react to her signals and deliver some much-needed relaxation. Interacting with her in different ways will lead players across branching paths toward one of seven different story scenes and six unique endings—and that’s just for Asuka. Additional DLC characters including fan-favorites Yumi, Murasaki, and Ryona will be released after launch.
There was a lot of speculation that this game would never see a western release due to a lot of factors, but it’s good to see that XSEED is continuing to bring over niche games to a western audience.
Next up we have Fate/Extella Link heading to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita later this Winter.
Picking up where the story ended in Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star, Fate/EXTELLA LINK expands the roster of playable Servants with 10 new legendary heroes added to the original selection of 16. These new Servants hail from other entries in the Fate series and include the likes of Astolfo, Scàthach, and Francis Drake. The high-speed action gameplay of Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star continues with improved visuals and new battle mechanics in both single-player and an added multiplayer mode supporting 4-on-4 online battles. Players will also be able to move freely around their new base camp—a medieval cathedral suspended in the sky—and interact with Servants to build bonds with them, taking on side missions that further flesh out their backstories.Developed by Marvelous and slated for publishing in North America on PS4™ system and “PS Vita” system by XSEED Games, Fate/EXTELLA LINK will release this winter both digitally and physically on PS4™ system and digitally on “PS Vita” system. More release details will be shared at a future time.
And to wrap up this news blitz, we have a PC port announcement by XSEED. Bullet Witch will be heading to PC on April 25th.
Originally released for the Xbox 360 in 2006, Bullet Witch offered a unique combination of Japanese dark-fantasy aesthetics and Western-style military action. This hidden gem is coming back and will be ready for action on Windows PC for a new generation of gamers with a host of visual and quality-of-life improvements. Take control of Alicia and her powerful, multi-purpose “gunrod” to lay waste to demonic foes by bullet or spell, even using the surrounding environment as part of her arsenal. All original cosmetic and content DLC is included in this re-release, providing access to every in-game costume immediately and adding bonus missions that expand the length of the campaign well beyond the story’s conclusion.Slated for publishing on Windows PC worldwide by XSEED Games, Bullet Witch is headed for digital release on Steamand the Humble Store by Humble Bundle on April 25, 2018 with a 10% launch week discount from its regular selling price of $14.99, €14.99, and £12.99.
A bit out of left field, but hey, glad to see more games coming to PC to hopefully get a second life there on the platform. And with XSEED’s PC track record of quality PC ports I have no doubt this will be a good conversion from 360 to PC.
And that will do it for this Marvelous information dump of upcoming games. Hopefully they will continue to XSEED our expectations as the rest of the year goes on.
