Tiny Impressions: Senran Kagura Burst ⊟
Senran Kagura Burst isn’t a great game (in fact, it’s a game by Onechanbara creators Tamsoft, and thus immediately suspect), but it falls into a genre I adore, with some well-executed traits that make it easier for me to overlook the obvious and many issues. Basically, it’s a game that addresses a fetish of mine.
Not that one.
Ys: Memories of Celceta out November 26 ⊟
Sure, this is a bit under the radar, especially considering its competition in late November (Xbox One, Super Mario 3D World, Zelda, Tearaway, everything else ever) but it looks really fun!
Senran Kagura Burst hits U.S. eShop next week ⊟
Adding to the already crazy month of 3DS releases, Xseed will put out this “buxom ninja brawler” on November 14 for $29.99. Probably best to get it out before everything under the sun releases on the 22nd.
There’s a lot more to this game than girls in skimpy outfits — here’s a new official website to prove it. Just going off the screenshots above, Senran Kagura Burst like a unique beat’em up.

Rune Factory 4 is a game after my own butt ⊟
There’s a great article by Jason Schreier at Kotaku about the work that went into Xseed’s localization for this 3DS JRPG. Read it if fun translations/localizations interest you!
Doktorzara is to blame for the pic above, one of many shots that have done a great job convincing me that I need to try this out.
Our leaked Pokémon XY shots ⊟
Wait, this isn’t Pokémon at all! This is Rune Factory 4, which released for 3DS earlier this week. And we didn’t even take these shots — credit for that goes to Sugarbloodsuckerz.
This isn’t the only video game joke Xseed threw in — here’s another one for a certain Western RPG you might be familiar with. The publisher brought this great item description back from Rune Factory 3, too.
Didn’t know Rune Factory 4 did this! ⊟
Not many 3DS games release in North America with inside cover art that takes advantage of these eco-friendly boxes! There’s Kid Icarus: Uprising and… Maybe something else I’m missing?
[Update: Commenters and peeps on Twitter have pointed out that Theatrhythm, Kingdom Hearts 3D, and Nintendogs have had this inside cover art too]
Valhalla Knights 3 out October 15 ⊟
XSEED will bring the third Valhalla Knights game to Vita on October 15, both digitally and physically. A digital release in Europe will follow. XSEED has done more than localize the action RPG:
For those who want to go beyond the single-player campaign, XSEED Games has added online connectivity on top of the game’s original ad-hoc 2-player versus mode for its North American release, so North American fans can play against each other online no matter how far apart they are.
Looks like it’s about 7-on-7 fights between parties of prisoners. The whole game takes place in a huge prison called “Carceron.” Kind of an interesting conceit for an RPG! Maybe I should start following this game…

Rune Factory 4 finally has a release date ⊟
It’s October 1 — the same day that Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl releases. Sure, they’re both very different games, but y’all are going to release two niche Japanese 3DS RPGs on the same day? And Pokemon X/Y releases less than two weeks after…
I really hope these two games don’t get buried this fall. At least this isn’t as crazy as what’s going on when November 22 hits.
Here’s the official Rune Factory 4 U.S. website by the way. Zen United also recently announced that it will release the action/farming game in Europe.
Senran Kagura Burst coming to U.S. eShop
If you follow us on Twitter, you would’ve caught our speculation last night about Xseed bringing this brawdy series to the U.S. Well, we now know the niche game publisher plans to bring the second 3DS game to North America’s eShop this fall, dropping in English text but leaving the Japanese voices.
Tamsoft’s Senran Kagura games are side-scrolling beat’em ups starring buxom high school ninjas. From what I hear, they’re competent combo-heavy brawlers, but most people tend to overlook that due to whole girls-losing-their-clothes-as-they-take-damage deal.
Rune Factory 4 coming to 3DS in North America this summer from XSEED
The publisher is super busy today, also announcing Killer is Dead (PS3/Xbox), Valhalla Knights 3 (Vita), Ys Memories of Celceta (!)(Vita), and Ys I & II Chronicles + (PC). Today is XSEED E3, I guess.
Fang is kind of a jerk
Did anyone shell out the $30 to cop Unchained Blades on eShop a few weeks ago? I hope this digital-only experiment (for what was a retail game in Japan) worked out for Xseed.
Forgot about Pandora’s Tower
We were super busy at the Tiny Cartridge office this week, so we missed this great news: Xseed will release Ganbarion’s Wii action RPG Pandora’s Tower (published by Nintendo in Japan and Europe) in North America some time this Spring. The people at Xseed are heroes, reminders that there’s still reason to leave hope in our hearts.
As far as Operation Rainfall projects go, I always thought of this one as the lesser of the trio — were this part of Park Chan-wook’s Vengeance trilogy of Korean films, this would have been Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance — still great, but not at the same level as the other two entries. Nevertheless, it’s great to see the Wii get one last notable game this year.
