Gun-Toting Witches, Holy Grail Warriors, and New Adventures with the Shinobi of SENRAN KAGURA Headline a Year of Action, Adventure, and Surprising Feelings
Tunbridge Wells, Kent— 11th April, 2018 — Marvelous Europe today announces plans to publish four brand-new and exciting titles of new and returning Marvelous titles in Europe in the coming year.
The first of which, in partnership with XSEED Games, set to kick off on Windows PC on 25th April 2018 is the cult-favourite action adventure title Bullet Witch, previously an exclusive on Xbox 360® games and entertainment system from Microsoft, now featuring visual and gameplay improvements to bring it in line with modern gaming standards.
Following the success of Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star, Fate/EXTELLA LINK is set for release this winter on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system, starting a new chapter on the battle for dominance over the virtual world of SE.RA.PH while adding an expanded cast of legendary heroes from other entries in the Fate series, along with added online play for the PlayStation®4 system version.
Meanwhile, the fan-favorite busty brawler series SENRAN KAGURA will be returning to where it all began, further exploring new ways to interact with some of its most popular characters as the series continues to expand into new genres. More than a re-release, SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal is an HD remake of the already enhanced first title in the series, SENRAN KAGURA Burst, which released for the Nintendo 3DS™ family of systems in 2013. Planned to launch on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC, SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal will bring a full 3D experience and fresh, new mechanics to fans of the action-focused series this Autumn.
Complementing this release and rounding out the lineup is the latest entry in the series, SENRAN KAGURA Reflexions, released as Shinobi Refle: SENRAN KAGURA in Japan in 2017 and planned to make its Western debut on the Nintendo Switch™ in summer 2018. Feel the heartbeat of shinobi heroine Asuka via the unique properties of the Joy-Con™ controllers, and embark on an emotional rollercoaster with this hands-on narrative featuring branching story paths and introducing a brand new genre to the SENRAN KAGURA oeuvre!
About Bullet Witch Originally released for the Xbox 360 in 2006, Bullet Witch offered a unique combination of Japanese dark-fantasy aesthetics and Western-style military action. This hidden gem is coming back and will be ready for action on Windows PC for a new generation of gamers with a host of visual and quality-of-life improvements. Take control of Alicia and her powerful, multi-purpose “gunrod” to lay waste to demonic foes by bullet or spell, even using the surrounding environment as part of her arsenal. All original cosmetic and content DLC is included in this re-release, providing access to every in-game costume immediately and adding bonus missions that expand the length of the campaign well beyond the story’s conclusion.
Planned for release on Windows PC worldwide by XSEED Games with support from Marvelous Europe, Bullet Witch is headed for digital release on Steam (this link will be live at 6pm BST) and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle on 25th April 2018 featuring a 10% launch week discount from its regular selling price of $14.99, €14.99, and £12.99.
About Fate/EXTELLA LINK Picking up where the story ended in Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star, Fate/EXTELLA LINK expands the roster of playable Servants with 10 new legendary heroes added to the original selection of 16. These new Servants hail from other entries in the Fate series and include the likes of Astolfo, Scàthach, and Francis Drake. The high-speed action gameplay of Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star continues with improved visuals and new battle mechanics in both single-player and an added multiplayer mode supporting 4-on-4 online battles. Players will also be able to move freely around their new base camp—a medieval cathedral suspended in the sky—and interact with Servants to build bonds with them, taking on side missions that further flesh out their backstories.
Developed by Marvelous and planned for release in Europe on PlayStation®4 system and PlayStation®Vita system by Marvelous Europe, Fate/EXTELLA LINK will release this winter both digitally and physically on PlayStation®4 system and digitally on PlayStation®Vita system. More release details will be shared at a future time.
About SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal Originally released under the name SENRAN KAGURA Burst in Europe and serving as a “director’s cut”-style take on the inaugural entry in this now storied series, SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal brings the prior release’s classic 2.5D action to modern hardware with a full 3D remake and a fresh retelling of the story that started it all. This fast-paced brawler will provide updated combat mechanics and character models, as well as all-new special effects for a voluptuous visual feast! The series’ popular Dressing Room mode continues to see expansions too, with a wealth of new outfits and options that allow players to customise their favourite girls’ looks and styles.
With additional DLC episodes to come that will reveal new story episodes for Yumi and Miyabi detailing their histories prior to meeting Asuka and Homura, SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal delivers an authentic recreation of the original game while ensuring that series fans will have plenty of new content to look forward to!
Developed by Honey∞Parade Games, Inc. and planned for release on PlayStation®4 system and Windows PC, SENRAN KAGURA Burst Re:Newal will release this Autumn both digitally and physically on PlayStation®4 system and digitally on Windows PC. More release details will be shared at a future time.
About SENRAN KAGURA Reflexions After brutal melees, rhythmic cooking contests, and shockingly serious water gun fights, the SENRAN KAGURA series is ready to take on the world of interactive storytelling for the first time and give players a chance to get to know the shinobi heroine Asuka in surprising new ways. SENRAN KAGURA Reflexions uses the unique properties of the Joy-Con™ to employ the art of reflexology and massage. Melt away Asuka’s worries and stresses by hand or through a variety of useful tools and explore deeper relationships than have ever been possible in the series before.
The advanced HD rumble technology provides a more realistic sense of interaction and feeling with Asuka, helping guide players to react to her signals and deliver some much-needed relaxation. Interacting with her in different ways will lead players across branching paths toward one of seven different story scenes and six unique endings—and that’s just for Asuka. Additional DLC characters including fan-favourites Yumi, Murasaki, and Ryona will be released after launch.
Developed by Honey∞Parade Games, Inc. and planned for digital release on Nintendo Switch™, SENRAN KAGURA Reflexions will launch this summer.
