This week’s issue of Famitsu features an interview with Senran Kagura series producer Kenichiro Takaki. In it, Takai talks a bit about Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura, which was announced for Switch last week.

Here’s a recap of what Takai shared with Famitsu, courtesy of Gematsu:

– HD Rumble is a particularly fascinating feature of Nintendo Switch
– I expect that we’ll be able to do various things that we couldn’t do with the rumble function before
– As for what kind of things we’ll be able to do in Shinobi Refle using HD rumble, right now I’ll leave that to your imagination
– We’re basically aiming for a pure and wholesome Senran Kagura, and our main objective is to convey the feelings of the characters through HD rumble
– The story will be charmingly stupid
– You’ll be able to enjoy a different story than before
– As an affordably priced, download-only game, this is a concept title based on HD Rumble
– Asuka will be the only character to appear
– Asuka’s graphics are being rebuilt from the ground up
– I want to beautifully express the portrayal of light despite its anime style
– We’re considering making use of Switch features other than HD rumble
– Switch is considerably easy to develop for
– Other titles being considered that use Switch’s features

Fire hopping was pretty prevalent in Mario Kart 8 on Wii U. Basically, the technique allowed players to extend mini turbos. The underlying idea is to hop in alternating directions during the turbo.

With Mario Kart 8 Deluxe nearly here, you might be wondering if fire hopping has returned. GameXplain tested things out, and based on what they’ve seen, it looks like the technique is gone. We don’t have an absolutely definitive answer, but this appears to be the answer right now.
