XSEED says Senran Kagura Burst “did really well”
Senran Kagura Burst sold “really well” for XSEED, according to the publisher’s Jimmy Soga. The 3DS game’s performance has led to the localization of the PS Vita titles Shinovi Versus and Bon Appetit.
Soga added that if Senran Kagura continues to do well for XSEED, “we want to continue with the series.” That would hopefully mean a western release for Senran Kagura 2 on 3DS would be possible.
We’re taking it case by case. Senran Kagura Burst did really well. It was download only, but there’s enough to say there is a US audience for it that’s why we went with Shinovi Versus. It’s sort of risky, but we localized Bon Appétit at the same time. We think there is a core audience for it, but it’s case by case for now. If these sell well enough of course we want to continue with the series.
