Senran Kagura Burst follows the rivalry of two shinobi-oriented academies that are disguised as everyday educational buildings. Players switch between two teams of five students, unlocking powers and outfits by completing missions. Battles are preceded with dialog between characters to supplement the story and flesh out relationships. Each student has their own assignments, spanning from retrieval quests to battles with multiple characters.
Of course, it wouldn't be an engrossing battle if their outfits didn't shred from their bodies as they took damage. Breast physics are exaggerated, too, so the true hardships of fighting for your life really shine through. Despite the pandering, Senran Kagura Burst's gameplay is fast-paced action with an emphasis on racking up high combos and juggling enemies as they're diced to bits.
Senran Kagura Burst spawned an anime and manga series in Japan and ... well, we can kind of guess why.
