It looks as though the busty anime ninja girls have made somewhat of a splash here in the US, considering it is now the fourth Senran Kagura game we're getting. The first 3DS game, Senran Kagura: Burst, was decent, but suffered from repetitive levels and some really bad frame rate. The Vita fighter, Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus, was certainly better in all regards, with a full 3D camera, and some way more intense battles. Then we got the cooking/rhythm game, Bon Appetit!, which was fun and quirky, and now we've come full circle with Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson on the 3DS.
Senran Kagura focuses on rival martial arts schools, which are all composed of very attractive, and extremely busty (with a few exceptions) warriors. The stories tend to focus on the schools rivalries, and usually present themselves in a sort of visual novel format.
But trust me when I say you're not here for the story, you're here for the over-the-top combat and in-your-face fan service.
The sequel to the 3DS game actually fixes a whole lot of issues, though it still retains a few. It's no longer simply a side scroller, with levels varying from a free roam, to ones with a fixed camera, but retaining the freedom of 360 degree character movement.
Let's take a deeper look at Deep Crimson, see what works, what doesn't and if you should buy into this jiggly sequel.
