Games, films, and books spin tales of shinobi in modern times, still fighting for their masters in the shadows of the world's city skyline. Those tales are only slightly inaccurate. Welcome to hanzō national academy, a shinobi training center hidden in playing sight on the campus of a normal high school.

On the surface, there’s nothing wrong with buying and enjoying a product made by a company eager to provide exactly that product—in this case, busty dress-up dolls that want for nothing other than to fulfill your wants. I just don’t find that very interesting or compelling. If that’s what you’re looking for, whatever floats your boat. But I can’t help but feel you can get the desired half of “Dynasty Warriors with TnA” with some quick googling.
Ultimately, I can't help but feel like the Senran Kagura series is at its best when it's exploring other concepts like water gun tournaments, cooking, and even pinball. There's just more room for creativity all around. Outside of the catchy and upbeat Japanese rock music, almost every aspect of Burst Re:Newal is extraordinarily low budget and mind-numbingly simplistic.
Your enjoyment of Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal is going to be dependent on how much you value the lore of the series. As this contains both the early wacky adventures and introspections of each of the shinobi, fans of the characters will love the treatment. Otherwise, the combat holds up, even without the use of items and combo moves. Although the other modes are filler, the presentation looks and sounds excellent. If you're a fan of the series but didn't play this game on the 3DS, Burst Re:Newal is worth checking out.
