XSEED Games has announced that the US release of Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal will be delayed as they «remaster to remove the interactive ‘Intimacy Mode’ from the PS4 version.»
The PC version will release simultaneous to the PlayStation 4 version with the «Intimacy Mode» intact.
Senran Kagura is a game series dating back to 2011.
In these brawler/visual novel hybrids, players assume the roll of female ninjas battling through a world where teenage girls are being secretly taught martial arts. As players sustain damage, the clothes of their selected kunoichi are gradually removed.
A prominent feature of the Senran Kagura series is its «Dressing Room» where players can pose the characters, change their outfits, and access «Intimacy Mode.»
In «Intimacy Mode,» players can interact with the underwear-clad ninjas by spraying them with water, groping them, or tearing off their clothes.
«We respect the wishes of the platform holder,» XSEED Games posted on Twitter.
Re:Newal is a full 3D update of the 2012 side-scroller Senran Kagura Burst, which was itself an extended version of 2011’s Senran Kagura: Skirting Shadows.
A new release date will be available «shortly.»
