Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal has added four playable characters from the Gessen Girls’ Academy via DLC, available for free for early adopters of the game.
Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal is a PS4 remake of the original Senran Kagura Burst for the Nintendo 3DS, adapting the side-scrolling brawler into the series’ better-known 3D format. The game was released on the 22nd of February in Japan this year.
Marvelous, the game’s publisher, has released the four additional characters, as well as a trailer to accompany the release. In appreciation of the game’s early adopters, Murakumo, Yozakura, Shiki, and Minori are available for free to anyone who purchases Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal before the 5th of April.
The trailer, as well as additional details about the characters, can be seen below. Credit to Gematsu for translating the news.
Murakumo is a beautiful and shy Jonin. She uses a giant cleaver and a spear in battle, while also being supported by wolves. She and the other new girls' come from Gessen Girls’ Academy, and was originally introduced in Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus. In the trailer, she’s been shown without her oni’s mask, behind which she originally hid.
Yozakura is a short-haired brawler armed with oversized gauntlets. She has a stern personality, being the second in command of the Gessen Girls’ Academy, but also acts as something of a mother figure towards the other girls.
Shiki is a witch-themed Chūnin armed with a two-sided scythe. On the outside, she’s a carefree party girl, though beneath her laziness appears to be a highly intelligent and deeply knowledgeable woman.
Finally, Minori is a childish-looking first-year student of the Gessen Girls’ Academy. In order to cope with the lost of her family, she pretends to be much younger than in reality, focusing on having fun and pretending that most of her life is just a game. She’s characterized by an upbeat attitude, a sweet tooth, and a deadly frying pan paired with a powerful bucket.
In addition to these characters, the game has also received cosmetic DLC: a 300 yen accessory set, a 900 yen costume set, and a free trial costume set.
There have been no official announcements of Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal coming to the West, although some fans believe that XSEED Games has plans regarding the game’s publishing due to them teasing their plans for this year with various silhouettes on their Twitter profile.
