I don't like intimacy mode in SK. But I've always stood up for it, because…well, this. This is how it starts, my friends.

This isn’t the first time that Sony Interactive Entertainment takes action against to this kind of content. The localization of Omega Labyrinth Z, a game with sexual innuendos and erotic elements, was canceled by the game publisher PQube to “comply with the wishes of the platform holder.”
For the overview of the game, high school girls are secretly trained to be a ninja. To learn the art of ninjitsu, they have to be discreet about this. Senran Kagura: Skirting Shadows is a story about the trainee shinobis of Hanzō Academy. They train to complete some missions and to battle against rival shinobis. On the other hand, Crimson Girls are from Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy, and they are also trainee shinobis.
Despite these “changes” for Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal‘s Western release, remember that the Steam version will be unaltered and will come out at the same time as the PS4 version. So get ready for the FULL EXPERIENCE by clicking the button below to stock up on Steam Cards now!
