Marvelous Games announced Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura to be released in the West as Senran Kagura Reflexions.
In a rather surprising tweet, Marvelous Games announced today that the “never gonna be released in the West, EVER” Switch title, Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura, will be releasing for the Switch in the West. Taking a new name, Senran Kagura Reflexions, this formerly Japan-only, body-rubbing game will now be available to fans in the West.
We previously covered this title when it was announced to be released on the Nintendo eShop in Japan last year. Senran Kagura Reflexions, as it’s now known, gives players an up-close and personal experience with some of the Senran Kagura girls. The base game gives players access to Asuka. They will be able to literally massage her aching muscles and interact with her in a variety of ways, leading to one of six possible endings. Future DLC releases are also planned for some of the other girls, including Yumi, Murasaki, and Ryona.
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.

Senran Kagura Reflexions is due out this Summer in the West. No solid date or pricing was listed on the announcement page, but the game released for ¥1,000 (roughly $9.40 USD) when it was first introduced in Japan.
